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, read more

I actually analyzed this series for a University paper (yeah, you read that right...)

Directed by the infamous Nabeshin, this is exactly what one should expect from him, with a twist. This is the first ever anime musical comedy. While fans of the typical Nabeshin screwball comedy will love it's off the wall flavour, it was also the pioneer of a new subgenre. Unfortunately...the pioneer was drunk off his ass and ran his covered wagon into many a ditch.


The show does have a basic plot that tie all of the events together. Hideki, Ichiro and their cousin read more

The show is really stupidly silly. But unlike Puni Puni Poemy and Excel Saga, this one has a story that he sticks to. I like the story because its heart wrenching but because of the black comedy, it doesn’t make me want to cry. I wanted to keep watching because of the characters and how they interact with each other, and to see if they ever would make their dream come true. They had me laughing from the start even if some of the jokes were a little gross.

The animation is not really all that wonderful, but it works with the fact that this read more

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 read more
