Detroit Metal City

Synopsis: Soichi Negishi moved to Tokyo to chase his dream of becoming a musician playing stylish, Swedish-style pop. Instead, he finds himself leading the death metal band Detroit Metal City, or DMC, as the costumed and grotesquely made-up "demon emperor" Johannes Krauser II. Although he hates the role and the things he has to do as a member of the band, he has a definite talent for it. Adapted from the hit Japanese comic book by Kiminori Wakasugi, the movie follows Negishi's antics as he tries to reconcile the two very different sides of his life and find out what it really means to achieve his dream.

That won't get me wet.

I've been in Tokyo 5 years.

It wasn't supposed to be like this.

Show us the real you!

Sir Krauser!

I hurt my mouth on the guitar.

Damn groupies...

Get lost, jerk!

No-one would believe I'm in the band.

Excuse me, coming through...

The instant he was born, Sir Krauser

sent his mom to hell.

He's truly evil.

What? My Mom is still alive.

I sent carnations for Mother's Day.

A letter, too.

He's responsible

for all drugs in the world.

He holds the record for

raping 11 chicks in 1 minute.

He's the king!

What are they talking about?

I don't even smoke...

and I'm still a virgin.

We'll have such a fun time

You beg me for a kiss

Just like I knew you would

I want to sing

about a world full of dreams

In which a boy meets

a lovely girl

One day I'll be understood.

One day... for sure.

We came to sing on the beach

Even god would sing along

While the dolphins watch and smile

Must want cockies to eat.


Thank you for always listening.

Even her CD jacket is so trendy.

Wish I could put out

something like this.


- It is you.

- Aikawa-san.

It's been ages.

First time since graduation, right?

Meeting you here of all places...

You still like that singer?

I edit a magazine now.

Really? I read it every month.

I love that "Caf Music" column.

I write that.

- Really?

- Yes.

What do you do these days?

Hmmm... I...

Diehard fans.

Oh, our second single comes out today.

Disgusting CD jacket.

I never said that, either...

What's the matter?


What would she think if she knew?

But I want to tell her the truth!

You know, actually...

Isn't this band horrible?


I can't bear to listen to it.

And their look...

it's just so not trendy.

Not trendy...

Sorry, maybe you like this band?
