Since I had just finished watching Kaikan Phrase, I thought I'd do a little review on it.
I came across this anime while updating the Kaikan Phrase manga entry, I immeadiatly added it to my plan to watch list since I had liked the manga so much.
The story is very simple, the band Lucifer tries to make it to the top of the music charts while various people try to stop their journey to the top.
I was disappointed to say the least but enough about that, onto the good points:

The other members of the band (besides Sakuya), get a lot more screen time and character development, read more

I still have a "hang-over" over Nana so I was browsing for some animes thats relevantly similar to it. Came across Kaikan Phrase but had a dout coz its quite old. But I somehow ended up watching it and have no regrets at all.

The story started of typically. A little bit slow but as it progresses you'll find yourself hooked. There's a lot of character development that would make one kind of attached to each band member. It was focused more on the band, on have they struggled, how they developed they're relationship to each other and how they overcame the obstacles read more

It seems to me that if a person liked the story of Kaikan Phrase, they'd like Beck too. They're both stories about mostly strangers coming together and working towards their dreams of being a famous rock band. They were very similiar but Beck was done better, I think.
