Continuing with more FMP, this time it’s the second season Fumoffu. Whereas the first season had only a dose of Sousake’s school life adventures, this season is totally about Sousake’s time at school – thus, this season is a pure comedy series. This also marks the start of Kyoto Animation’s involvement with the show.
Final Series Score: 12/12 Perfect
Pros: hilarious and definitely an inspired adaption by Kyoto Animation
Cons: nothing at all
This series was funny, really funny.
The only thing I really wanted to discuss is why this series helped push the first season’s rating down a bit. Without knowing the source material, it’s sometimes hard to pinpoint how each studio adapted and added to it but I got the sense that KyoAni tweaked and adding little touches to make already funny material even more funny. For example, at one point Chidori gets kidnapped and the kidnappers stick a sign on her forehead: Hostage – Do not touch. That had me rolling in laughter and while it might have been something in the source material, I think it’s something that KyoAni did to bring in the absurd to ratchet up the comedy.
Without spoiling all the most funny parts of the series I have to say that episode 4, where we learn why this series is called Fumoffu, and the pair of episodes when Tessa comes to Sagara and Chidori’s school as a student for two weeks are the standout episodes of the series. It’s hard to talk at length about perfection, there’s nothing to nitpick about so I’ll close by saying that this series is perfect and I’d recommend it to anyone.
Chidori tries to be the voice of reason
Bouta-kun to the rescue
Tessa, not only knows how to captain a sub, but knows her math
“I guess I have to do CPR.”
Nothing good ever comes from two woman fighting over one guy.
