Yearning to make friends and perform live with a band, lonely and socially anxious Hitori "Bocchi" Gotou devotes her time to playing the guitar. On a fateful day, Bocchi meets the outgoing drummer Nijika Ijichi, who invites her to join Kessoku Band when their guitarist, Ikuyo Kita, flees before their first show. Soon after, Bocchi meets her final bandmate—the cool bassist Ryou Yamada.

Although their first performance together is subpar, the girls feel empowered by their shared love for music, and they are soon rejoined by Kita. Finding happiness in performing, Bocchi and her bandmates put their hearts into improving as musicians while making the most of their fleeting high school days.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Bocchi the Rock! was released on Blu-ray and DVD in six volumes from December 28, 2022, to May 24, 2023.

Great, the comment I wrote yesterday is not visible, so I have to write it again, but I don't want to bother, I'm just complaining about how Spy I mean, I've never seen any jokes, effects or anything in any anime in my life, but this is something very different, it's a great thing, the ridiculous scenes shown in between are different from putting on a cute face, explaining the situation with a clay statue, seeing a puppet and real human hands at the same time, it takes the comedy anime to a different dimension. All comedy productions so far are made with a certain ...

Mixed Feelings
I Don't know how this anime got rating so high almost 9/10, but for me it is too overated and kinda mid instead, the music and the graphic was ok not so great and bad either ive seen worse but other than that is straight to mid 5/10.

Im sure so many weeb feel kinda relate to bocchi about how lonely and need attention they are but cant afford to talk with other people, but that was your problem not a part of the show.

But after considering there is not much anime that involve around music i could missing a single or two things great about ...

This is an AMAZING anime. They absolutely naild it in all areas.
The animation is great because you can see they took the time to accurately animate the drums, sometimes the guitars as well but not always. They did place the hands in the right position on the fretboard when they didin't accurately animate the fingers though for both guitars and bass.

The music is fantastic, many plying moments in the series are realistic, the songs are actually good and are made with the actual instruments portaied visually

They must have made some partnerships because you can actually see the marshall logo and the gibson logo on the ...
