    Ah, I was wating for this so much I just couldn't wait for Anime-Empire...so I downloaded the raw(Which turned out ok as the first episode is EXACTLY like the first chapter in every way). The band they chose for Beck is still semi-unknown as, oddly, the OP and ED are sung by two different bands. The one that did the OP, Beat Crusaders, is probably the band whom will sing all of Beck's songs as the OP shows the band singing along to it. The opening theme is enjoyable and I'll most likely download the OST when it comes out. The animation matches the unique one the manga used and, thankfully, Ryusuke's voice actor doesn't have a japanese accent while speaking english(About 1/8 of the manga is in english and the anime shouldn't be much differnet). I say this is good because his character is Japanese but was brought up in america so, like in the manga, shouldn't have a japanese accent speaking in english nor sound any less fluent in japanese than someone whom lives there all their life. All in all, a decent first episode. They'll probably manage to compact the 19+ volume manga into 26 episodes by shortening the Grateful Sound arc(Which lasts for several volumes in the manga). Anyways, once A-E subs this, I reccomend checking it out even if you dislike the music basis, just to give it a chance.

    Edit: The fansub was just released

    this is definitely a must watch for this season.

    After watching 5 episodes I found that the pace are way to fast, at the point where it almost become unenjoyable.

    i dont agree with that... Beck anime is at a pace that in the 5 eps they have they are at chapter 6.
    I realy dont think thats a "way to fast" pace.

    Hmm apparently...there's a problem with BECK...if BECK anime can't find and compose the song that sound that great compare to what they descriped in the manga. The anime will become a disappointement...and who's gonna sing for Dying Breed? that's a huge problem, but i'm excited to see if they can pull it off, if they could, it will be great!!!!

    Anyone else who's read the manga notice that they changed the name of the song that Koyuki sings from "Sister" to "Face" in episode 10? Pretty curious myself as to why since the song is pretty important in the grand scheme of the series heh.

    sothis this is one of my favorite mangas so i'll try to get around to writing a description of the anime sometime if no one else has.

    Yea and the song "out of the whole" is changed to "I have a feeling" Well, the songs are tolerable but I still think that the singing doesn't make me feel blown away like it is made out to be in the manga. That's my only beef with the anime.

    Yes its a great show, even if somewhat slow paced.

    I just cant believe Koyuki had the chance of banging three diferent nice girls and ended totaly alone.

    Is there any difference between been gay and only love music?

    Dunno.

    Ask Michael Jackson.

    All I know is that if Maho ended in my bed I would not waste the night making songs but I would make her sing loud

    I just finished this series and really enjoyed it. Now for the million dollar question. What can you guys tell me about the manga. Has it all been translated somewhere so I can read it. There were quite a few plot wholes at the end that I want to figure out. I do know that its licensed but Im not willing to wait 3 years to get to it by then Ill have most definatly lost interest.

    Anyway the show was great the music was great and that has to be the catchiest intro ive seen in a long time.

    anyway thanks for the help.

    Re: Beck *

    Beck is one of my favorite anime. Just a great show all the way around. I also love the OST, even if I had to look other places to find the title track. :mad:
