About Detroit Metal City Blu-ray

Detroit Metal City complete collection contains episodes 1-12 of the anime directed by Hiroshi Nagahama.

Get ready for the ear-splittingest, skull-smashingest band to ever assault your senses! Led by phallus-waving terrorist-from-hell Johannes Krauser II (guitar/vocals,) and given pulsing, throbbing life by indestructible drummer Camus and bassist Alexander Jagi, they're Detroit Metal City, the hottest ticket on the concert circuit! There's just one catch. That "hottest ticket" is just a meal ticket, and beneath the makeup these ultimate headbangers are hired doppelgangers who don't even LIKE what they do!

Jaggi is actually Wada, who wants to play Glam Rock, Camus is Nishida, an anime fan with an appalling weakness for curry and NSFW videos, and Krauser is - oh the shame - street-singing Soichi Negishi, whose dreams of singing happy pop seem hopelessly doomed by the success of his rage-fueled alter ego. Worse, he can't even tell anyone who Krauser is. Not even the girl he likes, who hates DMC!

Will rage against the corporate machine consume Negishi's tortured soul? Is there life after Death Metal? What's it like to put your head in a jet engine and turn UP the volume?

If you like Metalocalypse, then you'll love Detroit Metal City


As you can tell by the cover of the Blu-ray, Detroit Metal City is about a indie death metal band and the situations that happen to the band (Detroit Metal City or DMC) and their obsessive fans. Every episode of this series revolves around the lead of DMC Johannes Krauser II, or Negishi, his real name. DMC is a comedic series where most of the humor come in from situations that happen to Negishi or the reactions from the fans. I thoroughly enjoyed the series but didn't give it full marks because the animation does appear to be low budget at times and the movement of the characters can be jerky. If you like heavy metal and don't mind some of the potty humor, then this is the show for you. I hope that this review will help you decide if this is the show for you and I would love to see more DMC cosplay at the conventions!

Super funny if you like some darker humor
