SENTAI FILMWORKS LICENSES “DETROIT METAL CITY: THE ANIMATED SERIES”
July 1, 2012 by J!-ENT
HOUSTON, July 1, 2012 — Get ready for the ear-splittingest, skull-smashingest band to ever assault your senses in Sentai Filmworks latest acquisition: Kiminori Wakasugi’s Detroit Metal City: The Animated Series. Featuring direction by Hiroshi Nagahama (Mushi-Shi) and pulse-pounding music, these twelve episodes will leave your head reeling, your heart racing and your inner metal freak screaming for more!
Led by phallus-waiving terrorist-from-hell Johannes Krauser II (guitar/vocals,) and given pulsing, throbbing life by indestructible drummer Camus and bassist Alexander Jagi, Detroit Metal City is the hottest ticket on the concert circuit! There’s just one catch. That ”hottest ticket” is just a meal ticket, and beneath the makeup, these ultimate head-bangers are hired doppelgangers who don’t even LIKE what they do! Jaggi is actually Wada, who wants to play glam rock; Camus is Nishida, an anime fan with an appalling weakness for curry and NSFW videos; and Krauser is… oh the shame… street-singing Soichi Negishi, whose dreams of singing happy pop hits seem hopelessly doomed by the success of his rage-fueled alter ego! Worse, he can’t even tell anyone who Krauser is. Not even the girl he likes, who HATES DMC! Will rage against the corporate machine consume Negishi’s tortured soul? Is there life after death metal? What it’s like to put your head in a jet engine and turn up the volume? Find out as angst, amps and anarchy collide in Detroit Metal City!
Detroit Metal City: The Animated Series will be available through select digital outlets soon with a home video release on subtitled DVD to follow.
