Synopsis

Oji Tanaka has a wife, a child and a mundane job as a salary man in Tokyo's modern society. But life wasn't dull for him to begin with; 15 years ago, he was known as "Gabriel", leader of a short-lived heavy metal band called Black Heaven. Oji's life gets a sudden change in direction when he is invited by a mysterious blonde woman named Layla to pick up his Gibson Flying V and once again display his "legendary" guitar skills, not knowing that his music generates power for a massive weapon in an intergalactic war.

This is one of those Animes that will really throw you for a loop. It starts out pretty plain but by the end you are at the edge of your seat. The setting goes from a hapless salary man's every day life, to a battle that the fate of the universe rests on. The Legend of Black Heaven is a wild ride with some of, if not the best, music that you have ever heard in a Anime.

Story: I can honestly say that while the story is beyond a doubt a very original creation, it does lack some polish. Some events in the story take ...

Rock 'n' Roll, the sound of sexual liberation, youthful revolt, and living in excess. Since its early induction in film and other media, this genre of music has become synonymous with the "live-fast-die-young" lifestyle, almost becoming a checklist shorthand in the process. Whether it be used mockingly (This Is Spinal Tap) or genuinely embraced (Nana), rock 'n' roll has become a cornerstone in establishing tone and character. A correlative feature eventually made it a faux-literary device whenever brought up in any media that denotes the lifestyle mentioned.

All of which brings us to the anime in question, Kachou Ouji (Black Heaven). A show about a ...

Legend of Black Heaven was made in 1999 and made by AIC back when they didn’t rely on shitty fanser­vice harems and could pump out stuff like Black Heaven and Now and Then, Here and There. It tells the story of Oji, a gen­eric Tokyo salary­man going through a mid­life crisis. After des­pair­ing when his wife throws out his favour­ite elec­tric gui­tar, a sexy alien co-worker tells him that he is the one man with the abil­ity to power an inter­galactic super weapon using his gui­tar playing.

Not that the space opera plot really mat­ters that much. The super weapon runs on roughly the same energy ...
