Synopsis

Agetarou works at his family's tonkatsu restaurant in Shibuya, but he's not very excited by the work. One day, he takes a delivery to the staff of a night club, and the worker lets him in to enjoy the club for a while. Agetarou finds that he loves the club, with its relaxed people and cute girls, all enjoying the music supplied by the DJ. He continues going to the club, until the night comes when the guest American DJ Big Master Fly puts on a show. Agetarou is inspired by Big Master Fly, and realizes that the groove of being a DJ is very similar to the groove of being a tonkatsu chef. Now Agetarou is determined to master both disciplines, though he is most excited to become a DJ!

All I would say first: too underrated.

people don't give a go with this series, just because of the art (at least that's what I think and analyze). I would say this original manga is one of my favorite from jump +, with a 'unique' art style. Not all anime are big eyed cute Moe anime girls. Just keep this in mind. Just, stop avoiding it. Stop giving it 1's because of the art. Anime is not the art style. Everything has its own, original style of everything.
Its about a boy from a Tonkatsu shop inspired to be a DJ.
Just give it a go. Just trust read more

Right, so this is my first review on MAL so don't roast me to hard D:

First of all I'd like to tell any potential watchers that DON'T BE PUT OFF BY THE ART STYLE. Sure the art style isn't what you're used to but that's part of the anime's charm, well at least in my view.

Story 7 - Whilst the story has been straight forward so far its definitely unique, I haven't seen an anime about DJing so far but then again I haven't dug deep into the weird world of anime. In the latest episodes however, I do see some potential plot that read more

As a DJ that's been spinning for about three and a half years, this show has been a real treat between me and my otaku DJ friends. Although it takes out a lot of the little details, it's overall so far very true to the art of mixing and I really appreciate the accuracy the writers put in how Agetaro learns how to spin.

The art style is very non-traditional as far as anime goes, and honestly, this art style is something I'd expect out of something on Adult Swim. However, it fits the vibe of the show quite well, and I have no complaints. It's read more

After watching the 5th episode, I believe the show in itself deserves at the very least a 7. While yes, I will agree that the art is underwhelming; it's oddly fitting, and you eventually just ignore it.

After I got used to the art, I started to focus on the soundtrack, and found that the music is actually nicely timed, and does a good job at setting the vibe. I think it's also thanks to the soundtrack that the anime in itself at creates its own unique atmosphere in general.

Another thing I'd like to mention is that the plot wasn't god awful or boring for read more
