In the town of Nerima, the boisterous Hideki and his stoic brother Ichiro run a daikon radish farm along with Mako, their bubbly but vain cousin. The three dream of raising the money needed to build their own concert hall, where their band—Nerima Daikon Brothers—would perform and hopefully rise to stardom. But their farm and Ichiro's host club job aren't raising money fast enough for their liking, leading them to resort to get-rich-quick schemes.

Their plans usually involve tracking down evil-doers and then stealing their ill-gotten gains. Yet, while they usually do put a stop to the villains, they always end the day no richer than before. However, neither these failures nor interference from the policewoman Yukika Karakuri can come between this trio and their dream! With help from gadgets provided by the rental shop owner Nabeshin, the Nerima Daikon Brothers get themselves into and out of all kinds of ridiculous situations through their boisterous singing and comedy.

Nabeshin, most famous as the afro-sporting director of Excel Saga, thrives with material no one in their right mind would even think to create. With Nerima Daikon Brothers, he molds the story of two brothers, their cousin, and a soft... VERY soft... panda, who want nothing more but to turn their paltry daikon field into a concert dome where they can perform their music. But this is Nabeshin, so there has to be a catch, and it's a doozy... you see, Nerima Daikon Brothers is an anime musical. Singing, dancing, and lots of it.

Every episode deals with the Nerima Daikon Brothers looking for a break, ...

Mixed Feelings
I really respect Watanabe Shinichi for what he does as far as being an active face and voice in the anime community, advising fans to buy anime DVDs and manga instead of stealing them via torrent download and scanalations, but I haven't enjoyed any of his work all the way through. Excel Saga was great, but got old near the end, and I hated Poemy from minute one. Nerima Daikon Brothers is the third Nabashin related work I've seen thus far, and this one is sliightly better, but suffers from the same problems.
The comedy is pretty much what can be expected; an insane ...

Preliminary (4/12 eps)
It's one of those fairly rare anime that I find to be bad enough to drop quickly... Since anime tends to be just 12-24 episodes which can be watched quickly and without having to care much(unlike, say, novels that I also often read and can take days or weeks to finish even if you read several hours a day). Feeling like dropping it in episode one, with that feeling just getting worse until I drop it at episode four... Yeah, that's just plain horrible.

First of all, the art is the only fairly good part of this anime. Not too shabby, especially not for its age. ...
