Scum’s Take on Fake Love

You must be wondering why I would be blogging about the anime called Kuzu no Honkai or the English title Scums Wish. This anime had mixed reviews mostly with people commenting on how messed up the relationship between the characters and how messed up the characters are period.

Hello everyone and here’s another random blog for you guys to read!

But please don’t leave I swear it’s for a good reason, well maybe.

After hearing BTS’s song called Fake Love, the anime Scum’s Wish or Kuzu no Honkai came into my mind. It’s not one of my recommended anime’s to watch for everyone but hearing and understanding the lyrics of the song made me realize the similarity between the anime and the lyrics. I’ll be writing down the lyrics of the song Fake Love and putting my input and understanding on how it relates to the anime.

We won’t be focusing on all the relationships that are found on the anime. I’ll be in fact focusing on only one and it would be Hanabi Yasuraoka and Sanae Ebato.

And here it goes.

Note: I am not a big kpop fan so please, but I do listen to a few songs from BTS, TWICE, EXO, and MONSTA X. If you do have any songs or kpop bands to recommend me then feel free to do so!

For you, I
Could pretend like I was happy when I was sad
For you, I
Could pretend like I was strong when I was hurt
I wish love was perfect as love itself
I wish all my weaknesses could be hidden
I grew a flower that can’t be bloomed
In a dream that can’t come true

At the intro it talks about pretending, making their own ideal vision on how perfect their love was, the ideology on love itself. Ecchan fell in love with Hanabi after her generous act of helping her from being molested on the day of their entrance exams and happened to apply for the same school. Ecchan wanted to show her gratitude and in the end becoming close friends with Hanabi.

I wanna be a good man just for you
I gave the world just for you
I changed everything just for you
But I dunno me, who are you?
The forest just for us, you weren’t there
The route I took, I forgot
I even became quite unsure of who I was
Try babbling into the mirror, who the heck are you?

Although Hanabi didn’t feel the same, Ecchan started to develop strong romantic feelings towards Hanabi and began to have a more sexual relationship because of Hanabi’s lost and mixed feelings of her surroundings and ended up getting caught in Ecchan’s web.

Love you so bad Love you so bad
Mold a pretty lie for you
Love it’s so mad Love it’s so mad
Try to erase myself and make me your doll
Love you so bad Love you so bad
Mold a pretty lie for you
Love it’s so mad Love it’s so mad
Try to erase myself and make me your doll

This one is another for Ecchan, it represents Ecchan for me because of how caring she was fo Hanabi, being always there for her and allowing Hanabi to use her for her own pleasure and desire which ends up to deteriorate their friendship slowly. When their sexual relationship began Hanabi started having mixed feelings of guilt for using Ecchan and in the process, but Ecchan didn’t mind being used, until she finally realized what the right thing to do is.

Why you sad? I don’t know I don’t know
Smile, say “I love you”
Look at me, even I gave up on myself
Even you can’t understand me
You say I’m unfamiliar, changed into the one you used to like
You say I’m not myself which you knew well
No? What do you mean no, I’m blind
Love? What the heck is love, it’s all fake love

Their sexual relationship finally came into an end once Ecchan finally realized the importance of herself, they had a short break of not speaking to one another causing Hanabi to feel lonesome since she was the only friend she had. But at the end they finally spoke to one another, Ecchan had a change of hairstyle and thus the quote “New hair New Me” would fit perfectly for this one, and became the best of friends once again.

This is my take of finding Kuzu no Honkai fitting the song quite well with the relationship between Ecchan and Hanabi. It’s not an anime I would recommend to everyone but if you’re interested in watching the different views, or the messed up ideals of love then go ahead.

  1. Nice lyrics. I really enjoyed scum’s wish, and yeah Ecchan pretty much took advantage of her relationship with Hanabi. In the end though, it had a bittersweet end.
