Fukashigi no Kazoekata tells a story of an unfinished symphony. It is a poetic masterpiece that combines the tragedy of the unstopping march of time with the boundless motivation of our teacher. This anime was so beautiful, both in knowledge, content, and emotion that you could say it touched - no, it groped, rather, my heart.
Story: 10. The story was outstanding. Compared to conventional anime that we see these days, the story is quite original in its content and display. How many isekais do you see talking about combinatorics? Exactly, none!
Art: 10. Haters will hate saying that there were some issues regarding the drawings, especially
with its unorthodox alignments within a seemingly non-Euclidean universe. But in the end, I guess you could say this is just a matter of... perspective.
Sound: 10. Everything talked about in this video was encapsulated by its exceptional sound design. I'm sure blind people would be able to follow along, given that you understand Japanese. Honestly, the sound by itself would make an amazing podcast.
Character: 10. The characters are what really makes this show shine. There are so many dimensions that the characters and their developments could be interpreted that it would take pages upon pages to fully explain it all, from the decreasing interests of the students to the never ceasing passion of the teacher. This show really sets a new standard of what proper character design and development should look like.
Enjoyment: 10. I have never learned so much from this anime than from any other anime, honestly. This show has shown me what the happiest highs have looked like, when the teacher was enthusiastically showing her students the 2x2 grid, to the lowest lows, when the teacher (spoiler!!!) literally died. (end spoiler)
Overall: 10. When you stop and think back after watching this anime, you start to wonder about many things. This show, after all, does say a lot about our society. We live in one. What will it look like 6 years from now? What about 250,000 years from now? What about 29 billion years from now? Would our schools look like the decrepit, destroyed ones shown in Fukashigi no Kazoekata in the future? Would humanity be extinct and be completely replaced by robots? Could those same robots contain or preserve our consciousness? This show is both incredibly beautiful and incredibly sad at the same time. I would highly recommend.
