5.0 out of 5 stars Good Series, Funny! Sept. 18 2012
By Angel - Published on Amazon.com
Detroit Metal City is a rapid fire comedy about the rise of the death metal band, DMC to prominence. It is also about the protagonist, Negishi, coping with his placement in a style of music unlike that of what he dreams to perform Scandanavian Pop.

Negishi makes a fool of himself differentiating Krauser from his daily life, often in interference in his romantic aspirations for Yuki; Krauser has crazy antics onstage and with fans,the double lives that DMC fans lead. Most of the story in each episode is focused mainly on the first element, which is a shame, because certain jokes quickly got old after the third episode, and could have had the edge taken off of it by the third element, which went rather unused despite having some very funny moments

The characters are archetypes that aren't found very often in anime, much less comedy, so the use of them especially as main characters is very refreshing. That said, because the show is about Negishi as Krauser, there is little to no development done for any of the supporting characters. For a slapstick comedy, I think that there is a good bit of development for Negishi who struggles with being tossed into the opposite genre of his choice.

Detroit metal city is a very good comedy series that I hope has redefined some of the conventions of anime in the execution of comedy. The pace never really let up for a second with quick dialogue and running through gags and punchlines at rapid succession. It never relies on the expectations of jaded viewers for moe fanservice or generally overused gags. I laughed good and hard through much of the show, and for a comedy, this is rare

One of the greatest things about this anime is that it's nothing like the generic anime show. People who don't even enjoy anime will love this, it's more so cartoon-ish in animation style. It's important to mention though that not everyone may appreciate the crude humor and animation, but those who are familiar with the studio and their works (and most definitely the manga) will enjoy it.

In comparison to the manga, this is more fast paced and only adapted a select few stories. It does stay very true to the manga in every way, and there couldn't of been a better studio to pick this up. The manga is fantastic as well, but the anime brings the music to life. I usually prefer anime to manga but in cases like this it's difficult to decide which is better since they're both so great in their own way.

My suggestion would be to watch the anime first, then read the manga. Otherwise, you may be disappointed with how little the anime covered in comparison. Once you're done with those two, be sure to pick up a copy of the live action movie. I bought it on whim and was highly impressed with it, it may actually surpass the anime.

Overall, this DVD is definitely worth buying (but perhaps just a bit expensive for being so short) and still one of my favorite series. Go to DMC!!

Do you like metal?

Do you like anime?

Do you like laughing?

If you say yes to these three things, you need to see this at some point in your lifetime. The episodes are 15 minutes long and they're hilarious. If you're tired of anime that seems like it's meant for girls or wusses, have no fear, something has been created for you.

The DVD itself is no-frills. It has a clean opening trailer and some trailers by the producer, but I've never been one for extras anyway. The episodes fit on two discs and it includes the original Japanese audio with English subtitles. This anime has NOT been dubbed on this DVD.
