First Megabu, now this?!
DEEN, please stop... -.-

Sorry. but... Why series like this get anime?!

One thing I liked in this episode was this song before ending credits and ending theme...

Yeah DEEN could really use their time on something else. Not to say that this first episode was terrible or anything, but it wasn't that great. It's one of those VA shows, which I admit, was the only reason why I wanted to watch this. But I still laughed out loud occasionally because of how ridiculous it was, especially when the shirts came off of the three dudes while they were playing their song. Reminded me a bit of Aquarion Evol.

Well, let's just see how this goes. Hopefully the second episode will have less boring parts in it.

It was....interenting? No, not exactly interesting but intriguing. IDK if I'll watch it to the end. No most propable but...time will tell. One is for sure it had a weak start and enough manservice, reason to drop, but anyway Wixoss had a weak start too but became really good later on so let's give a chance to the next 2-3 eps, then I'll decide.
A Story will always come to it's end. The thing is, will you move on after it's over?

oh my that was really fun <3 manservice for the win <3 I was never a huge fan of rock, but maybe I can deal with it to see those rippling abs. No use looking for plot in this one guys xD

And this is exactly why I don't think I'll last for more than three episodes at most. I'm a straight male so yeah ... fujoshibait is my worst nightmare. Damn shame though as a non-pandering show about rockers in Bakumatsu would have been cool.

I wasn't expecting too much from the beginning, since, you know, it's Deen... and it's a rhythm game adaptation...
It was watchable though. I want to see more about the Heaven's Song thing and also what the hell was the Pierce Soul thing or whatever it was.
I'll just stay a bit more for the music, the main character is irritating as hell to me.

If it gets more boring, I'll just drop it and listen to the songs online later.

too bad then, you're missing out. Doesn't matter if your straight or not, I think anyone can appreciate a pair of sexy boobs or abs. It does get kinda annoying when I'm constantly in the face of gargantuan mega jugs in every series I watch, but you know, I deal with it.

AH-AH! I knew it! The main VA is the singer of the Granrodeo.
Well what can we say? This show is not obviously supposed to be taken seriously, it will just be a funny ride to the end. The design also is quite good. Too bad this is not my kind of show.

Oh shit I just found out it's DEEN, RUN AWAY BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE.

Was hoping they wouldnt use 3D animation, but hey, what you gonna do.
The man service was awesome, the music sounds great,
so far so good.... I havent been disappointed yet.
Looking forwards to the next episode.

BTW, character design is awesome as well.
BTW, also reminded me a bid of the Sonic Underground series.

I can smell the pheremones oozing through my monitor.

Hmm... Let's see... We have swords, shirtless hotties, rock music, and the distortion of history? Yeah, I'll bite, if for nothing else but the eye candy.

I think Ryo may have the best hair in anime ever!

Those ED visuals...delicious!

Wow, I did not expect that. I can see why this gets a lot of hate but it's not that bad. Just corny and weird as hell. I do appreciate the lovely manservice though.

Kamigami no Asobi started all "wtf" and stuff too, so I'm gonna keep watching this to see if this turns out good.

Cool ED theme. Tatsun, OnoK, and Morishow are nice to listen to in general.

Lol exactly what I was thinking, once I saw the cover next to free! I knew what was about to happen and it was confirmed when 4 mins into the damn thing MF started cutting wood without his shirt on.

Also this junk is not funny to me what so ever

OH MY GAWD
I had to cover my eyes when they started singing on that bridge.

If i can handle UtaPri with their cheesy jpop songs, I'm sure I can handle this anime as fine.

I'm all in this for the music.
Let's see how this goes.
It's not as bad as ppl make out to be (yet).

Trying to figure how this is so 'bad' compared to the dumb shit people overhype ala HOTD, which is mediocre at best.

Anyways can't wait for the next episode.

This was... interesting to say the least. Got tricked into thinking that glasses dude was a chick though :/ Was not impressed when he took off his shirt haha. The music wasn't bad, seems like a quirky anime that'll get a 5-6. We'll see how this turns out, not expecting much tbh

Pretty awkward concept, rock bands in Edo period.
I really enjoyed this first episode tho.
Poor Ryoma, trying to gain attention, lol.
I'm looking forward to see more development on the main characters.

This is what motivates me to watch Bakumatsu Rock.

Gonna watch for the music and seiyuu only then o: (Plot? What plot?) The bishies are not appealing to me lel.

Great start to the anime. love the comedy, music, and the animation (while can't really stand next to Free) is very good on it's own. everyone looks pretty/handsome and some guys actually look like they have a man's figure, which is pretty rare in anime these days.

This isn't as bad as everyone says. I actually enjoyed it a little plus I liked the op.

However, if this goes all Meganebu (episodes 2 and 4 were freaking boring and tedious) I'll drop it.

boys, just admit it already that if the topless men were to be replaced by infinite titties, you wouldn't mind the show's ridiculous plot at all. :P

saying this sucks just because of the fanservice is being subjective. i dont get it why boys attack shows like these when girls only get 2-3 titles directed at them every season and the rest are very much at their disposal. insecure much?

Yeah, Kamigami no Asobi was the surprise of the season for me since I did not expect to like it as much as I did after watching that first episode scene. Hopefully it's the same case here.

I love Ono Kensho's voice, one of my main reason for watching this. Especially if we get to hear him sing, even better! Tatsun's voice is great too of course. They're listed as main characters so hopefully we'll hear more of them soon since they barely showed up in this one.

Honestly, I'm seeing all this raging against fujoushi and??? How is this any more homoerotic than Sengoku Basara? Which is basically historical battles on crack? Is it because the men haven't covered their chests with chastity veils? An ankle, forsooth!

I can't figure if the divide is due to some dudes and ladies having never enjoyed comedic juxtaposition in their lives or what. Can't you tell musical strip battles are not asking to be taken seriously??

Nice insert song.
6.5/10 for this ep.
Isayama Hajime should be awarded The Manga with The Highest Inconsistencies of Characters' Appearances.
He keeps performing multiple plastic surgeries on those Shingeki No Kyojin characters in a SINGLE chapter.
Yes, I've read up to the latest chapter of Shingeki No Kyojin manga.
Forced myself to read through the kidsketching chapters after the anime's ended. At least from now on, I only have to go through the hell once a month.
Patiently awaiting SNK TV/movie/OVA anime-sequel.
The 2015 SNK live-action movie would probably suck.

What's up with Japanese animation industry and their insistence on making the stupidest historical anime lately? first we got Nobunaga the Fool, then Fuuun Ishin DaiShogun, and now this? just when I thought they couldn't come up with a stupider concept they came up with rock music.

After watching it, I think it doesn't going to be something big, also that fanservice for girls is unnecessary, but I'll keep watching it because that story is quite good. Guys who play rock against the Heaven's songs of the goverment, it reminds me of a situation like Manowar or Linkin Park versus Justin Bieber or One Direction, I believe it will be funny.

Um...this anime IS aimed at girls so naturally there will be fanservice for girls? We barely get fanservice anime for girls as is, so let them enjoy what they get? ^^

Hey, if you like the ridiculous bishounen design, more power to you, at least you can find some substance in this.

All I see are random boring skits. Am I asking too much of the show to show some enthusiasm, energy with decent humor and not feel like a soulless production that just fills a checklist.

I guess I had high expectations for this one, b/c
I really did not enjoy it, except for the music. -.-
I hope it gets better, but just in case: next time
I'll probably watch it lying down as recommended
for not to be in chance of falling down instead.:P

It starts out okay, even though I know what kind of person this is aimed towards.

The biggest fear is obviously how the hell they are going fill 11 more episodes using a very limited plot; to be frank I really have no expectations on that front.

I don't like loud-mouthed protagonists so I can't sympathize with Ryoma.
Truthfully I don't like Ryoma's speaking voice and his design, tho his singing voice is better, I suppose.

The episode became a burden to watch for me until the duo Shinsaku-san and Katsura-san appeared. & I found their personalities quite likeable and their reactions when their clothes were ripped out magically were gold lol. But even so I was pretty bored while watching the episode.

Overall, the episode was pretty meh. I can't see giving a score higher than a 6. And I guess I'm gg to keep on watching to see if it improves, that is if I remember to watch it. Otherwise, if I'm not watching more than 3 eps, I'll just be deleting the entry and pretend I've never watched this anime.
