Carol is the tale of a teenage girl whose life seems normal enough until she notices music disappearing from all around her, such as the sound of Big Ben, her father`s cello-playing, and the concert of her favorite band, Gaball Screen. After hearing some mysterious voices, Carol is transported to a fantastic world where she must fight against the evil monsters who are stealing the music from Earth. She meets and is assisted by three dashing heroes: Clark, Tico, and Flash.

"Just One Victory: Tatta Hitori no Shouri (Just One Victory~たったひとつの勝利)" by TM Network

Sep 16, 2009
The music of the world is starting to disappear, even the sounds of the Big Ben are not heard anymore. We start this OVA with a girl named Carol, your decent teenager and pretty much average like anyone else at her age. Her father is a famous classical music composer and he's having problems doing music at the time. Sometimes she hears a voice calling her name but she doesn't know what it is until she is suddenly transported to another world. It happens that some guys there wanted her help to rescue a friend of theirs that was captive at the foes lair and ...

When I read the brief description of the story, I was sure this was probably some kid's story with a morality lesson or something. As in, something for six year olds. It's a the type of plot you might expect from super magical girl show (a la PreCure) or something.

But nope, turns out it's more of a shoujo story aimed at young teen girls (I think the protagonist is fifteen). And the story is played out seriously, at that. Once you strip away the seemingly childish elements from the story description, it does boil down ...

Mixed Feelings
Haha this is so messy it's almost worthwhile. Japanese intuition is intriguing, even with bad examples like these. Here we have the Alice in Wonderland template, dissected and thrown against several unripe narratives, mainly evolving around an "album" that works as a portal to another world, though it's partly causing the music from the first world to disappear, pun is seriously not indented lol, that's how it really is, it's actually written based on a real band and album. The premise is engaging indeed, but it feels like a surreal aesthetic mix of "post-punk" from the 80s and dungeon myths, it's even weirder than that ...
