Here's a synopsis of Legend of Black Heaven:


Oji Tanaka has a wife, a child and a mundane job as a salary man in Tokyo's modern society. But life wasn't dull for him to begin with; 15 years ago, he was known as "Gabriel", leader of a short-lived heavy metal band called Black Heaven. Oji's life gets a sudden change in direction when he is invited by a mysterious blonde woman named Layla to pick up his Gibson Flying V and once again display his "legendary" guitar skills, not knowing that his music generates power for a massive weapon in an intergalactic war.


It sounded pretty interesting and funny. I haven't really started watching it yet. I located some episodes on youtube. So I'll probably watch it there.


omg, find the jap name!!

Why I started Watching anime - different, obviously fiction - more depth than Scooby Doo and I even got 2 college presentations & one research paper written from my 'exposure' !

LOL ok so really - I like new ideas and different cultural norms and it's still able to pleasantly shock me - OH and it got me through my divorce.

ah... so really I'm a vampire romance ... well any hot guy romance with a decent story line... fan... and ... um... anime keeps me celebate.

- cause there's no way any of my dream guys could actually be REAL - haha

First exposure was to Vampire hunter D, Black Magic M-66, Akira, etc. It was a complete break from the Hana-Barbera/LooneyTunes/Nickelodeon type stuff they had on tv.

Whys do i watch it now? time filler
Why watch movies? Why listen to music? Why mess around with cars? Computers? It's something to do

i consider works such as those by leiji matsumoto etc to be classic
newer would be series that employ heavy use of CG
This is somewhere in-between <released in 1999>

Plot goes: aging 80's style metalhead turned salaryman winds down the spiral of depression. Starts playing music in space to save the universe and avert his mid-life crisis <hey, he could have left his wife and bought a car>
Series revolves around keeping this fact from his wife, borderline illicit affair with chick from outerspace/coworker, and recycled music scenes.

The series is only so-so, but at 13 eps it isn't bad. definitely worth a watch <if you're into that>

AniDB entry

Japanese opening for episode 1
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTJTLl4JTYk

Honestly don't know what genre you'd call it. Seinen? Music?

--edit--
The art style in the op isn't used throughout the series. All music outside of op/ed is instrumental.
