Anyone ever seen this show? It's the English dub of a show based off of a manga graphic novel, apparently the english version is pretty recent and I'm not sure how widespread it is as far as airings.

Anyway, it's about a band, and it's just the perfect show for UG; the details on the guitars (especially in closeups, which are frequent) are just awesome. Only problem is, there's a lot of blank pauses and silences between bits of dialogue, and it overall has this really wierd, choppy pacing, I dont know if that's intentional or if something's been lost in translation.

Anyway, if you can find it on your TV, check it out, mmk?

There probably will be bulletholes in the actual guitar. Otherwise, it would be kinda dumb.

I'm really considering sigging that...

I don't think it will fit...

And that's what she said!

Seriously though, the server is pretty slow, so it may take a while to load, but the quality is pretty spiffy if you ask me.
#18
Sigged! And now I'm off to watch episodes 17-20something!

EDIT: They don't work! Ahhhh, noooo. *cries, curled up in the fetal position*

I love that show, i have the entire series, the manga (up to volume 25) and the sountrack all on my computer. All took a longass time to download. and all were worth it.

Long live MCS.

EDIT - btw, the English version sucks! they totally butchered "Brainstorm" and a bunch of other stuff. yeah... Original Japanese FTW.

They do take a pretty long time to load though, be patient.

I love Beck, especially the wierd cycle policeman who keeps chasing the lead and Mr Saitou.

At first I kept thinking that Beck: the singer would show up at some point (before they named the band that and i felt like a fool )

Anyone also see the Fender H1 tele they sold for the show?

Beck is good, i have two soundtracks.

Ryusuke is a douche.

I tried to get into both the manga and the show, but for some reason they both make me really mad.

Especially when they mention that band "Dying Breed". OMGZ DYING BREED IS LEGENDARY!!! YOU HAVE A PICK FROM THEM? OMG! OMG YOU HAVE THEIR CD FROM WHEN THEY WERE INDIE!? I WANT TO BANG YOU!

I like the idea, but the characters (especially the main one) are annoying.

EDIT: I'm not saying its bad, its pretty well made, I just don't like it for some reason.
#27
I downloaded the japanese (subbed) torrent, and shortly after the entire soundtrack (and it's several varieties). Beck >>> You
#28
I love it! I only decided to read and watch it because I found out it was about a band and it had kickass guitars. I like the tributes to all the people like Hendrix, Lennon, Mercury...very cool

I only seen the Jap ver tho.

Their english...hehe hurts me ear a bit..

No, it's pretty bad. I couldn't help but thinking the whole way through "damn, this must suck for anyone that isn't into guitars". The English was god-aweful (Japanese version) for one thing... there was other stuff, but it wasn't really that great. >_<

SharpSpoon, they were Japanese people attempting English. And they sucked like nobodies business.

See, that's one one thing probably that keeps me away from the Jap version; the songs are all sung in this earsplittingly nasal slurred engrish. The songs are sweet in the English version though, but I hate when it does a close up on Chiba, cause his mouth doesn't move in sync with the words.

Yeah, I've watched the show in Japanese =.= I had to read the subtitles. Either way, it was pretty good. The manga goes further apparently than the anime cause I think the anime had 1 season only.

its a good show but the main character needs to man up a little. I like how they put emphasis on the guitars and the shows though.

one is the japanese version which is all part english anyway, the second is remixes/covers of songs done by other bands.

i've only seen the japanese version because the song lyrics fit so much better.

I learnt how to play 'My World Down' (not that it was difficult), that song kicks ass. I love the vocals.
