The story is mostly told through the eyes of Kaoru Nishimi, a sensitive and introverted boy who has just transferred to a new high school and finds himself meeting a group of friends that he had never imagined being possible.
Kaoru’s first encounter with Sentarou Kawabuchi is at the local train station where Sentarou is playing his trumpet on the platform. He later meets Sentarou again at school, where he and his two friends, Ritsuko Mukae and Junichi Katsuragi, invite Kaoru to join their jazz club.

The Super Dimensional Fortress Macross
The Super Dimensional Fortress Macross
The first episode of The Super Dimensional Fortress Macross aired on October 3rd, 1982. It was the first animated series to feature a love triangle between two men and one woman. This show is considered one of the most influential anime series in history and it inspired many other anime shows to come after it.
For example, the new Robotech movie will be based on this anime series because it’s so popular around the world. It is also considered one of the most influential pop culture phenomena in Japan and has been adapted into video games, manga and novels.
The Super Dimensional Fortress Macross is one of the anime in my personal collection. It’s also one of my favorite shows.
The story follows Hikaru Ichijo, a young pilot who came to Earth from the planet Iscandar after being rescued from a crashed space ship. He and his friends join the Earth Defense Forces and fight against the Zentradi aliens who are trying to take over the planet.
The anime was made in 1982 but it still holds up today as one of the best mecha shows ever made. The animation is very good for its time, with detailed character designs and smooth animation during action scenes. The soundtrack is also amazing, especially when you consider that this was released before VHS became popular so there was no way for them to sell it as an album! It’s all original music created just for this show!
I highly recommend this show if you’re looking for something new to watch!

Detroit Metal City
In a nutshell: The story of a boy who loves metal music, and the band he fronts. As a teenager, he joins a band called “Detroit Metal City” and becomes its lead singer. But he’s only doing it to make money and get girls. As time goes by, however, he begins to take his music seriously and starts questioning whether or not he has what it takes to become a real musician.
What I like about it: This anime was created by comedian DMC as a parody of an already existing group named “Kiba of Akiba,” (which means “fanged dog of Akiba”) which is also known as Kyoiku-metal (education metal). The jokes in this show are very well-written, making it one of the funniest shows out there!

What Is The Music In Anime Called?
Anime has a lot of music in it. Sometimes it’s just the background music playing while the characters are talking, but sometimes it’s an actual song that is sung by one or more of the characters. What is this music called?
Well, there’s no simple answer to that question. Some anime have their own original songs created for them, but others use existing songs from real life. These are called “cover songs” and can be hard to find if you’re not familiar with Japanese music or if the song wasn’t written by a well-known artist.
There are also many anime where the characters sing karaoke versions of popular Western songs, like “The Final Countdown” or “Crazy Train.” These are easy to find because they’re so popular among Japanese people and have been performed countless times on TV shows in Japan over the years.
The music in anime is not just background noise. The music is an important part of the story and characters.
The music in anime is often called “anime songs.” Some fans like to call them “anime songs” because it’s easier than saying “music in anime.” However, some people use this term as a way to refer to any song that appears in anime.
Anime songs are used for many different purposes. They can be used to tell the story or express emotions. Some anime songs are used as background noise while other anime songs are used as fight music or sad music.
Some people think that all anime has bad music, but there are some anime with good music too! You just have to look around!
