Long time, no blog…After several minutes of trying to recall my WordPress username and password, I finally have a new blog entry.
Beck (official Japanes site here) is a new anime intriduced to me by my sister. It revolves around Koyuki, a 14-year old boy ly living out an aimless and dreary life who stumbles onto Ryusuuke, or rather, his Frankensteinian dog Beck, who introduces him to the exciting world of rock music. Inevitably, the quest to form the best rock band is on, and the journey is an interesting and enjoyable experience. Although not by any means the best in its genre, the realistic characterizations, arguably involving plots and catchy music make this an anime not to miss. Let me put it this way, both my siblings are now taking up guitar again, and seriously, so far.
