Scum's Wish (Kuzu no Honkai) -- it's kind of amazing
« on: February 24, 2017, 07:55:48 PM »
Right now the show is running on Amazon's exclusive "Anime Strike" channel ... free month, then $5/month after that, I think. They have a ton of stuff, some of it overlapping with other outlets. But among their exclusives, this "Scum's Wish" show is blowin' my mind.

They're up to episode 7 so far.

The show is about ... sex'n'stuff? Relationships and complications. Friends with benefits. Unrequited love. Age gap issues. Some people with crazy personality disorders that ruin everything.

And it's drop-dead serious. No fan-service BS. Still ... very erotic at times, I suppose. No explicit stuff. But very deep, introspective, and so far, reeeeally heartbreaking.

Modern school setting, yada yada. You'll recognize stereotypes, then you'll see them snapped in half as the writers try to create interesting, real-ish, multi-dimensional characters.

Also, op/end music and animations are solid. I have a lot to say about the ending animation and some of the "suggestive" things going on in the kaleidoscope of abstractions.

But I literally have no one to talk to about it. So someone go watch it so I can be like "YO that was CRAZY right?" :)

bump. It's up to episode 10 now. It's getting more and more amazing.

Would someone please do the Anime Strike trial with Amazon and check this thing out? I'd love to hear others' opinions.
