Good morning loyal Painkillers, anime fans, and newbie to the site! Welcome to the latest installment of Anime Wednesday! Today I have an anime, that some of us can relate to. We want to go out and live our dreams, but unfortunately our dreams don’t pay the bills (well not yet anyway!). So we have to go work some meaningless job so we can survive. I don’t think any of us had a job as crazy as in this anime. Here is Detroit Metal City.
The series follows Soichi Negishi. He is a shy musician that likes Swedish pop music, and wants nothing more than to become a pop star himself. Unfortunately, his big break comes as his alter-ego Johannes Krauser II, lead singer and guitarist of the black death metal band Detroit Metal City. He is embarrassed about his wild and crazy antics, and the popularity of DMC, so he hides what he does from his friends and family.
This show is pretty out there! It has it very funny moments, as well it is down right vulgar with things. This is definitely one of those animes that I can say is not for everyone, so watch this at your own risk. Speaking of watching, probably a because of how this is, its a good chance that you wont see this on Netflix, Hulu, or any other streaming service I normally direct you guys to. If you want to watch this, get yourself a VRV account. For $9.99 a month you have access to anime, old Nickelodeon cartoons, old Cartoon Network cartoons, and more. This is not a paid ad, even though I wish it was, I been using it for a while, and just figured that I should spread the good word. Until next time everyone!
