About Mongolian Chop Squad Complete Series DVD SAVE Edition

Mongolian Chop Squad Complete Series set contains episodes 1-26 of the anime directed by Osamu Kobayashi.

Koyuki Tanaka was feeling the rut, even though he's only a teenager. Between the sheltered and stifling grind of school and the girls that spend their time not noticing him, every day was just another day of being a total nobody. Enter Ryusuke, a local rock 'n' roller haunted by a shady reputation. Together they form Beck, a dynamic band that just might be the salvation of the stagnant music scene.

Sure, it's going to take hard work and obsession to make it, but there's something special in the sound. If the guys can stay true to their vision, the world awaits. Music can change your life, sometimes against your will. Just remember: when it's live, anything can happen.

Special Features: Trailers, Textless Songs.

Spoken Languages: English, Japanese, English subtitles.

A fairly serious band drama.

by

After getting tired of all the titty-comedy and random perversion anime, a solid story with characters that actually change over a two year period. It has a side of comedy (without going overboard), romance, and tinge of suspense. The core of the story is like slowly watching a flower bloom and once it opens its a beautiful story. Anyways if you like anime and music this is a double hitter.

You'll 'Buzz-Saw' This Series!

Don't like 'Slice-of-Life'-type shows? Think again! Hands-down the best music-driven series I've come across, it does a great job of showing the building of a rock band piece-by-piece, and the ups-and-downs of the process. The music is phenomenal--especially in the English dub(one of the rare times I'll prefer the dub over the original) Hats off to Greg Ayres, Brina Palencia and the other cast members! From the theme tune 'Hit in the USA', every song is distinct and captures several rock genres, from the British-Invasion era sound of 'Follow Me' to the Rage Against The Machine-esque 'Typhoon 24'. As usual, Madhouse provides a great visual style that goes well with the series.
Lots and lots of cussing, though(it is about rock music, it's expected)--don't watch this with the grandparents.
What!?! You haven't added it to your cart yet? You'll love it!

A Wonderful Series

I've been curious about this series for a while. The last con I went to we decided to stream it in between panels and were hooked. It is a great drama with a wonderful soundtrack. The English cast did an amazing job on all the songs. We only got to watch about ten episodes and I cannot wait to restart it and binge it all.

This is a good anime to watch the the dubbed actors are good for the characters voices the band music songs are awesome I highly reconmend people to check this anime out its made by Funimation there are 26 episodes it has anime voice actor Greg Ayres and voice actor Brina Palencia in it so if you are looking for an anime with band music good plot this is the one for you

By far my most favorite anime ever

by

Wow. Just... wow. Perhaps it's because I dig rock 'n' roll and loved being in a band that this story works for me. This anime is binge-worthy, and will leave you feeling empty when it's over because you'll want more. IMHO, the English dub handles the music better than the Japanese. Be aware, I tried buying anything and everything related to this anime once I was done watching it, you know... to fill the hole in my heart, and there was hardly anything out there to throw my money at. The music will be stuck in your head for years.

Subbed or Dubbed: Very Different Stories

by -

I agree with all those who have praised the voice actors in the dubbed version. This isn’t a complaint. I want to note that this an anime in which the story is changed when all the characters speak English.

It’s very important that some characters speak English, some don’t, and some struggle to bridge the language barrier. Watch the scene with the thugs in Episode 1. The communication gap really ramps up the tension.
This is not a passing element. As late as the final episode, language is important. (Minor spoiler: Maho doesn’t give Koyuki that tape because he can’t remember the words of his own song.)

So, if you’re looking for a story about a bunch of guys forming a band, then by all means enjoy the dubbed version. However, if you’re looking for a story about the challenges faced by a Japanese band trying to “Hit in America” (as the theme song declares), then I highly recommend the subbed version.

This was the first music anime I ever saw back when it first came out, I loved the music in it! I'm so glad I was able to find the full set of it and enjoy it again. It's a great coming of age, friendship, romance, comedy, music anime. I highly recommend it if you want something that isn't so fanservicey and I love the art style. I still listen to the songs from the anime to this day. I'm still in the midst of rewatching it but from what I've heard in episodes 23/24 there's supposed to be their version of the song by The Beatles "I've Got a Feeling" and they didn't include that song because of copyrights. Otherwise the whole series is great!!!

Is you love music, this is for you.

The music/band aspect is well represented, the only drawback is the drama to make things more interested and sometimes it can backfire the phasing of the series. The soundtrack is fantastic.

The band life is well represented and the soundtrack is fantastic. I can point that there's a moment they focus a bit too much in the drama and the band theme goes to the side, but overall is a good watch.
