The Final Face-off For The Fox

Voice of Fox Episode Review Title

Voice of Fox Episode 12 Review

Voice of Fox has simply come to an end (or rather it concluded the current crisis and then gave a potential tease at the end for more of Hu Li’s journey but honestly I’m happy enough with this as an ending). Hu Li and Ji Hetian finally face off in the Rising Star of China competition. Everyone watches with some of the more villainous characters of the season smirking to themselves about how they are going to be the next big thing anyway, and everyone else being reduced to tears by a song. It’s a little bit overly simplistic but it fits the story up to this point and to be honest it was kind of nice seeing Hu Li have his moment.

Less nice was realising Hu Li hadn’t figured out who Sky was. Really? I kind of thought that had already been resolved and now I’m convinced Hu Li is actually an idiot. Great singer, nice guy, but complete idiot. And actually that makes a lot of his choices earlier in the season make more sense. He definitely needs a manager to help him make better choices.

The singing was nice, the story is drawn to a close, but really I can’t help but feel that this episode didn’t quite bring the emotions and drama of earlier ones. It really did feel like it was going through the motions and while all the elements were there for a solid emotional conclusion I just didn’t really feel it. Which is a shame given this anime has been one that I’ve consistently enjoyed because of the emotional drama it has carried through.

Anyway, for a short anime, it has done what it needed to do and I really had fun with it. I’ll get to a series review of it and hopefully a few more people will give this one a go. While it isn’t perfect it is certainly a fun watch.

Review:

Sad that the final episode was the first that made me actually kind of intrigued by a character and the world constructed by this anime. Sad that all of the previous 11 episodes ultimately ended with Nezumi’s one wish that he decided needed to be granted. However it is now done and I will admit episode 12 at least let this show end with some dignity as it certainly provided a far more engaging viewing experience than anything thus far.

Nezumi was always a bit of an enigma but I liked the few times we saw him during the Juni Taisen so an episode focused on him was kind of entertaining to watch. His general attitude, while it would be frustrating to follow a protagonist with that mind-set for a whole season, was fairly amusing in the small doses we got and as a closer to the season. This episode also gave us some insight into the other contestants (though definitely a case of too little too late).

While this doesn’t change my overall pessimistic view of this show, I actually have to say I didn’t mind this final and it certainly could have been worse.
