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]

HeroAca and Blue Lock? Sorry...I don't do Shonen stuff.
Spy x Family? Even though I have a family, I don't fall into that category.
Mob Psycho 100? Great conclusion from the manga that's finally translated to the anime, but I'm not all that psychic to begin with.
Bleach: Sennen Kessen-hen a.k.a Thousand-Year Blood War? I'll let you have your moment of glory just right behind Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.
Do It Yourself!!, Yama no Susume? We can be buddies in the same theme, just doing different things!

BtR! is a CGDCT anime that has a little bit of a different focus. While these series usually have a specific character who gets more emphasis than the rest, it's not uncommon for the authors to deprioritize our main squeeze in favor of the group, and the stories are largely carefree and relatively plotless. I guess if you were to look to literature, most of these stories would roughly fall under third-person objective as a narrative style. Most of the information conveyed is through character action and dialogue, and it's rare to be subjected to internal monologues at length; in contrast, BtR!—aside from occasional observations ...

Bocchi the Rock! is an unserious CGDCT show that is mostly famous for having tricky animated segments that make good twitter memes, and a JUST LIKE ME protagonist! This is Bocchi za rokku! It totally rocks! I've been told many good things about this one: Firstly that its the only anime to get musicians right, and secondly that its the most unique looking anime ever. ALL TIME BABY.

i dont like it

While other CGDCT usually handle their characters more flippantly to focus on *other* details, Bocchi the Flop expects you to take a cast of cotton-candy-hair colored waifus wholeheartedly. They are really good characters though, with ...
