About ClassicaLoid Blu-ray

ClassicaLoid contains episodes 1-25 of the first season of the anime series.

Kanae knew that her hometown was trying to become a musical hotspot, but modern teens aren't interested in classical music… or, at least, they weren't until "Mozart" and "Beethoven" suddenly appeared in front of Kanae and her best friend Sosuke and set the town on fire with "mujik", a stunning fusion of classical masterpieces retooled in modern musical styles!

And just in case that isn't exciting enough, the "ClassicaLoids" have added Giant Robots and spectacular light shows to the mix! But as more Classicaloids continue to arrive, can the town withstand the combined creative energies of dozens of musical geniuses all determined to promote their own creative output? Find out when Bach is back, Liszt is on the list, and Chopin is chopping at the bit to unleash the full power of classical music!

Special Features: Clean Opening and Closing Animation

An Ode to Joy and Gyoza

by -

Structurally speaking, ClassicaLoid is a sitcom asking the question "what would happen if the world's greatest composers were brought back to life to live together in a mansion in Hamamatsu?" The answer, basically, is scream a lot and blow stuff up while a shoebill stork looks on with silent menace. Meanwhile, from atop a tower J.S. Bach watches on, Ohtori Akio-like, some sinister plot in mind.

There are times when ClassicaLoid is nearly crushed under the weight of its own cacophonous absurdity, but the comedy works most of the time and the music all of the time. More importantly, the creators are coming from a place of genuine love of classical music, of music itself and what it means in our world. At its heart, this is a truly noble work that will bring a tear to the eye of anyone who loves music, and along the way hopefully educate and inspire you- not just in music, but in art and love and joy.
