Wasn't too fond of the constant bad language and the gore factor in the music video was way too high for my taste... I loved Cromartie High School, but doubt I'll ever get into this. Only the main character was likable, didn't really like anyone else.

Holy mother of ass this was crazy wordy. I had to rewind several times to catch the subtitles.

That said, I lmao'd a fair number of times - especially during the second half of the episode. However, as both a metalhead and a genre enthusiast, I really can't say their sound is very "death metal." The chuggy guitars even sound more along the lines of deathcore than death metal. Didn't get a chance to hear enough to determine what genre their sound is, though.

I'm thankful for MAL and finding DMC, without it I would've been just another mass-murderer.

Doing a rewatch of DMC. Still as hilarious as I remember it

Wow this looks interesting and funny .LOL at the mc for not understanding how he ended u in a death metal band five years later.Also that scene where the girl was singing the song the sung to her and his murder song was playing on air.It was practically the same song but he modified it.

This is 8.30 out of 10? Well, I'm glad the Mr. Pickles isn't on here because that would get a 9.64 or something instead of the 1 it deserves. This definitely isn't the funniest series out there.

Rape my own mom! Hahaha comedy gold right there!
Eat live animals! Oh my god stop, this is too funny!
Rape every bitch and skin your dad! This is the funniest thing ever!

I'll admit there were a couple of scenes (like the scene where the girl was singing and it showed the lyrics of the song she was singing and the metal song that was on) that had me laugh but most of this was cringe worthy shock humour.

this actually looks promising.
the manga wasn't one of my favourites because i felt it dragged on after one point but this short series seem to work DMC out perfectly.
and this is exactly how i imagined this animated.

Haha, of course the first page would turn into a debate over what metal subgenre DMC is.

By the way, for those entirely unfamiliar with metal and metalheads:

"The general public has held a stereotype of heavy metal fans being suicidally depressed and a danger to themselves and society in general," explained Adrian North, the professor who led the study. "But they are quite delicate things."

Metal fans, like classical listeners, tend to be creative, gentle people, at ease with themselves. "We think the answer is that both types of music, classical and heavy metal, have something of the spiritual about them — they're very dramatic — a lot happens," North said to the BBC.

A generalization of course, but we do tend to be either shy and reserved or otherwise normal, judging by those I've encountered at shows and festivals. Sometimes I think it would be fun if metalheads were a little more like they are in this show. :D

I love to listen to metal and I have to say that I'm going to love this anime too. Fuck! I'm wet~

It's sad that Negishi's stuck living the opposite of what he wanted to be in life.

It's gold that Grotesque and Negishi's pop song was so complementary with one another despite the lyrics being too different from each other.

That air guitar was insane. I'll have to agree with those diehard fans to that.

"I mean let's go to a trendy cafe and let me rape yo-!" He fucked up in the most hilarious way possible.

Oh gosh i really think this anime is going to be a fun ride for me. I do enjoy metal but DMC takes it to a whole new level and the president is a sex freak which weirds me out at times lol

I do enjoy seeing how the own lead singer hates the stuff he writes and preforms and is the complete opposite of his stage persona. Can't wait to see where this anime goes!

LOL that ending. It would be quite a twist if it turned out that all along the mild mannered Negeshi was just a front to his actual repressed Krauser personality.

This was like something you'd have found on MTV alongside Beavis and Butthead and Daria, back when MTV wasn't a PC cesspool.

The second half was just repetition of the special so I really didn't bother with it.

Anyways, the animation and VA were again on point but the comedy didn't flow through me that smoothly. However, I did love the transition from MC's monologue to the OP.
