Every day, a young girl wearing a mask stands by the beach and sings a nostalgic melody. After experiencing two sudden heart-wrenching partings when she was only a child, Nino Arisugawa has been singing her songs to the ocean, bound by a promise made with her two childhood friends—her first love, Momo Sakaki, and a boy who composed music, Kanade "Yuzu" Yuzuhira. Having never met each other, the boys both individually promised that if Nino was ever separated from them, her voice would be the beacon to reunite them once again.
After six long years, destiny has finally placed Nino, Momo, and Yuzu in the same high school. However, the passage of time has changed many things in their lives—while Nino relentlessly attempts to fulfill her childhood promise with the boys, Yuzu's feelings for her from the past resurface, and Momo goes to great lengths to prevent a reunion with Nino. Through music, will they be able to mend their friendship and overcome all the feelings involved in this complicated love triangle?
[NOTICE: I actually love alternative rock music, this review is not a statement against the genre itself, but the bafflingly awful and musically flawed nature of this specific anime. In short, I like this kind of music, but the songs here are objectively bad]
Watch it if you are
- capable of enduring teenage melodrama without any rhyme or reason (pun intended)
- looking for punishment for your recently commited homicide or child rape
DO NOT watch it if
- your hearing is at least somewhat functional
- you ever wonder what kind of school allows kids to just vansih for weeks to live out their breathtakingly inane traumas that come with incredibly lacking love triangles
- you still want to believe in the goodness of music
My personal opnion:
A music anime where the lead somehow fails to hit every single note in every single song, completely ignores the bpm most of the time and is still considered to be a godsent singing wonder is beyond dreadful. And even if you had complete tone-deafness or the goodwill towards anime temporarily impaired your hearing, you'd still be left with the painfully generic, gloomy teenage romance plot between two flavors of generic tsundere boys: the adorably irate pipsqueak (the M for the yaoi fanfiction) and the sexy serial killer that blushes (the S for the yaoi fanfiction) and the subject of their passive-aggressive uncaring-caring: a walking-talking migraine stuck in a girl's body.
Though, to be fair, this entire series is pretty much a migraine in animated form...
So in short:
- uninspired and grating story
- constant melodrama
- tiring and annoying characters
- music comprised solely of off-beat, false notes
- not entertaining even in an ironic way
This anime is simply an unpleasant experience that takes a lot out of you with every second spent watching it.
I really love this anime, first time i saw this anime I remembered NANA ( sweet memories)..so, all the people says ''is the same like fuuka but better'' ''this anime did the thing what fuuka never did in one only episode''
One point fuuka is a shonen and ecchi (yep, ecchi), Fukumenkei noise is Shoujo... with the 5 episodes i have seen of fukumenkei noise i can say this is master piece in terms of shoujo.. maybe the animation isn't the better than other but think this anime could be better with ''moe animation'' animation is fine.. but the story and the character and
music for me, is so fucking good, the VO of nino is so good, you know is Hayami Saori. isn't boring to see this anime is so recommended.. this anime have potencial the manga was very popular in her time.. and maybe 12 episodes will be very short but i'll be happy with all the songs of In No Hurry..
Ever seen one of those flip cartoons? The art kinda has that feeling to it in some scenes wich bugs me out, some movements made by the different characters seem kinda out of place as well. But for me, that is pretty much all the critic I can give it that actually annoys me.
The story is rather plain and. One girl, two boys, conflict is ensured. While I'm still not sure how it will end, wich many animes fail horribly at, the story is kept alive thanks to the characters.
Now you might think of them as generic and you would not be wrong, we have
a dream chasing female protagonist with two boys influencing and conflicting her life and choices nothing too special. However, what makes these characters stand out is a very nice connection to the music that plays during the show. They are both harsh.
They portray feelings more forward and clumsily while still maintaining that oh so classic "I can't reveal my feelings" cliché, but it feels so much more life like that way. Emotions are rash, irrational and harsh and the way the music is used to describe the feelings or try to reach out is harsh and there's a charm and an understanding of being a musician that is hidden from plain view.
If you are searching for a music-themed anime with a direct conflict and connection of emotions and character this is the one.
This anime is VERY niche, it needs to fit your tastes both musically and in the genre that it is.
For me, I'm seriously enjoying Fukumenkei Noise as is, Nino has a voice that you either love or hate, and for me, I love it. In NO Hurry To Rush are an alternative band, and I love the music sequences, they're enjoyable. The story is a cliche in every sense of the word, but it's enjoyable if you like a cliche and like a love triangle. The art style isn't usually up my alley, but I think that the studio did a great job with it.
if you like listening to alternative music, if you like teenage drama and if you're into a good love triangle, this is definitely for you.
