Available on Crunchyroll. Watch it here: Samurai Jam - Bakumatsu Rock


Synopsis

The story is set in the Bakumatsu era, at the end of the shoguns' rule over Japan in the middle of the 19th century. The Tokugawa shogunate uses the brainwashing Heaven's Songs by the top idols in Shinsengumi to subjugate the country and its people. In this Japan, writing or singing any songs besides the Heaven's Songs is a capital offense. Sakamoto Ryouma and the other rockers rise up and change the world with rock 'n' roll for freedom and justice.

The premise sounds kinda fun imo but nothing else too special about it. I'll wait to see how the first episode turns out I guess..

Edit:
vistlip will perform the OP song

Not too excited about this anime, but some of the boys are kind of cute, so I'm gunna give it a try. Plus the music might be fun too.

Episode 1

This feudal era reality sure has a lot of international influence. There's rock n roll and pizza, and the government decides who can sing and who can't. Though not really my kind of show, it looks pretty interesting enough for me to give it another episode or two. I enjoyed this episode more than I was expecting to, but at the same time it's too fangirl gimmicky that it doesn't exactly do any favors for me, especially in a crowded season.

I don't have much to say on this except that it was fairly average...


Music wasn't that good either imo.

Episode 1




The episode wasn't bad.. The music sounded nice and I'm a huge rock fan so I might like the songs. Some of the characters looks like girls, but I just have to look past that and the plot seem interesting. I'll see how this turns out. This is like those typical idol anime's on the girls/boy going big... but having a rock perspective. Something different I suppose. I have a feeling there's going to be a lot of fan service.

I just finished watching the first episode.

How the hell am I supposed to explain this to my wife? Not even the power of Gene Simmon's rock blew off his clothes.

Music oriented anime aren't really my thing but the first episode wasn't that bad, I need another episode or two for a solid opinion

Not enough manliness. Too much manservice. Will still give it another episode though.

It's no worse so far than Kamigami no Asobi was this spring, and I made it through that one ok. The CGI parts stuck out pretty much though. I agree above ^^ would probably be better with more gar..
