A *masterpiece* of modern anime and TV programming
13 November 2013 | by iamakittenSee all my reviews

This show is a masterpiece. Intimate, thoughtful and thought-provoking. It expresses the struggles and reality of an entire generation in a series of achingly beautiful scenes.

It's the story of a teenage boy caught in a perverted situation (the kind of perversion that every teenager goes through as a course of growing up) by a classmate and then becomes beholden to her because of shame. Afraid she'll reveal what a pervert he is. More than that though it's a show designed to make the viewer question the nature of reality and their own psyche, by inevitably identifying with the lead character it raises questions about whether current notions of "perversion" or even relevant. I believe the conclusion is that our cultural view of morality, perversion and deviance is hopelessly out of touch with modern living and causing harm on a wide scale.

If I had to recommend any two shows of my generation it would be The Wire and Aku No Hana.
