Detroit Metal City

Ok so I guess most of the people around me realised I’m kind of crazy over the anime Detroit Metal City. A sort of comedy anime with only 13 episodes. Yes, 13 episodes at 13mins each. And what’s worst, there are revoltech figures of all 3 band members! Released in July without me knowing a thing about it.

Anyway brief synopsis via Wikipedia.
Negishi Soichi is a shy and gentle teenager who dreams of joining a trendy pop band. However Negishi finds himself as the lead singer of a metal band named “Detroit Metal City” and takes the name of Johannes Krauser II. As Negishi himself, he hates the music of DMC and tries to aspire to be a trendy musician. However when Negishi becomes Krauser, he becomes a different person and he’s great at it. He puts on such excellent shows; fans believe he is a devil. Negishi finds himself trying to satisfy both worlds but will he be able to?

Onto the Revoltech figures. Saw it retailing at $20 each at China Square Central. Tempting but then again, I need a miniature drum set to go for the band. Because Camus(Drummer) is without his drum set whilst the Bassist and Guitarist both have their provided equipments.

Johannes Krauser II (Lead Vocalist/Guitarist)

Alexander Jagi (Bassist)

Camus (Drummer) Yes a drummer without his drum set.

Damn it!
