Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad

Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad follows an unmotivated 14-year-old named Yukio Tanaka, who, through a chance encounter, propels himself on the road to become a rock star. Yukio a.k.a Koyuki is likable and arguably maybe even relatable. The storyline is fun and falls in line with the modern coming of age tales.  The lore surrounding some of the characters was engaging. The character designs were dope, and I love how they modeled them after famous musicians.  Beck has a lot of great things going for it.  In addition to that, it’s the music- its fire! Trust your in for a good time.

Carole & Tuesday

Carole & Tuesday is about two young women named Carole and Tuesday, who form a musical duo after meeting on a bridge in Alba City, a colony located on Mars. The character designs were diverse as hell. The backdrops, the colors, everything was pretty in this dystopian future—even the wastelands of Earth. The music was just out of this world. (pun intended).  There was a little something for everybody, which made it that much more enjoyable.

Notable artists involved: Flying Lotus, Thundercat, Denzel Curry, Nai Br.XX, Celeina Ann, and Mocky. Alison Wonderland, D.A.N., Cero, Mark Redito, Madison McFerrin, Taku Takahashi, Taro Umebayashi, Taylor McFerrin. Fun fact, each episode was titled after a real-life song, and I couldn’t be happier about it.

Ai Yazawa’s music drama about two young women named Nana who meet by chance on a train to Tokyo. Nana Oosaki dreams of making it big as a musician, and Nana Komatsu comes to Tokyo to be with loved ones. The music in this anime slaps.  The storyline is compelling and will have you on an emotional rollercoaster. It’s raw, slightly mature, and the visual aesthetic adds on layers. Ai Yazawa’s art style is distinct, and Madhouse did a fantastic job of helping transition that into animation. This story is heavily character-driven, giving it a human element that I love. Plus, did I mention how great the music is—you’re doing a disservice to yourself by not checking it out.

Clearly- I have a thing for stories where strangers meet and hunt down their dreams together. In conclusion— here are 3 Music Anime to Explore While Quarantined.  What did you think of my recommendation? What is a music-themed anime that you would recommend?
