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.

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 read more

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 read more

Ahead of it's time... but not in a good way.

Isekai has become a very oversaturated genre of anime over the years. Aura Battler Dunbine (1983) is generally regarded as the first isekai anime. There appear to be a few isekai/reverse isekai from before then, although all of them are obscure are not fully available in English

Carol was released in 1990, 7 years after Dunbine. What I'm trying to say is: Is this considered the first piece of "isekai trash/harem isekai/generic isekai/modern isekai/whatever"?

Story: The story follows Carol, a girl from London, getting transported to another world and some shit about music disappearing. She is then surrounded read more

The 1-episode OVA “Carol” is the anime portion of a music-themed mixed media project spearheaded by members of the pop-rock band TM NETWORK, featuring character designs by Yun Koga (“Earthian”).

The story is based on a novel by one of the band members, which itself is inspired by a concept album the band put out before that. Most of the music in “Carol” is from this album, and the three main male characters are modeled after the band’s members. One of them is even voiced by a band member (and you can tell because of how wooden his performance is compared to the rest).

So, is the read more
