About Key the Metal Idol DVD

Key the Metal Idol the Complete Collection contains episodes 1-15 of the OVA series.

Her classmates at school called her Key, as in the "key" to a strange mystery. Key's "grandfather" was a kindly old scientist wanting to use his skill in robotics to create peace and love in the world. But when that kindly old scientist passed away, poor Key was left behind, lacking even the ability to smile.

There still is hope, however a message left behind for Key suggests a fantastic possibility. Could it really be possible for Key to become a real, live human, if she can only win the love of 30,000 people? A dark, haunting tale of cybernetic sci-fi dreams, spiritual visions, and the turbulent world of Japanese pop music,

A series that hits the perfect chord of animation, story, voice acting, and music


This award-winning series and OAV's, with vividly spectacular animation and a soundtrack beyond compare, is one that will leave you breathless and captivated until its very end. Junko Iwao's early work as Key showcases her broad array of talents, including her dulcet singing voice, which is teased throughout the thirteen episodes and two OAV's. It might take a second or third viewing to catch the small details that makes its storytelling deep and mysterious, culminating in a climax that might bring you to tears (as it still does for me). Fans of the original Japanese actors may not be thrilled with the English dub, but performances by Brian Drummond and Saffron Henderson do credit to the early VIZ cast. All in all, the combination of pristine animation, complex plots, and, most of all, captivating music make this title a must-see, must-have for the anime aficionado.
(Hopefully, a Blu-Ray release will come soon....)
