    The website describes the story:

    Fifty years have passed since mankind began migrating to the new frontier: Mars.
    It's an age where most culture is produced by AI, and people are content to be passive consumers.
    There's a girl.
    Scrapping a living in the metropolis of Alba City, she's working part-time while trying to become a musician. She's always felt like something is missing.
    Her name is Carole.

    There's a girl.
    Born to a wealthy family in the provincial town of Herschel City, she dreams of becoming a musician, but nobody around her understands. She feels like the loneliest person in the world.
    Her name is Tuesday.

    A chance meeting brings them together.
    They want to sing.
    They want to make music.
    Together, they feel like they just might have a chance.

    The two of them may only create a tiny wave.
    But that wave will eventually grow into something larger...

    You can find character designs and profiles in the link.
    Could this be the next good music show after BECK, NANA and Apollon? I really need more music shows that arent filled with loli girls that try to act cute and shit.

    Edit: somehow I cant upload the image correctly. Can a mod fix this.

    Netflix huh? Sounds like it'll air weekly in Japan first, so we have another LWA/Violet situation.

    Since its Watanabe doing another music show, I'm already there. The fact that its in space and stuff sells me on it even more.

    YOOO WHATTTT. Wow that's dedication that they actually have an IG for it :O That's really cool. (instant follow)

    The first episode was beautiful. I really like the melody that they sing together. I get goosebumps every time I hear it. I wasn't expecting actual English lyrics lol. Apparently they had auditions for Japanese and English singers a while back for it

    It's a pretty gorgeous show with lots of details all over the place. Sure it's ep 1 and most likely the best give or take that it will look but still. I liked it even if the way the two go together was a bit forced feeling and it's good that they're not the only focus. My one other minor gripe was that the lip flaps for the singing scene were messed up really badly.

    The music quality is there, but I’m also still not really feeling it. I guess animes like BECK set the standards too high for me.

    I'm fuckin loving this show. It's funny that these two are conducting in guerrilla music performances, but I hope they get their time to shine in an official capacity soon. The little snippet with DJ Ertegun really makes me wanna go to a rave. With the whole AI aspect and how they seem to dominate what people's tastes in music are, I hope that this doesn't put electronic music in a bad light and pit it against the good "real and live" music lol. But we've yet to see other singers/musicians in this show, so we'll see. The realistic use of social media and the product placement also helps make the show more believable.

    edit: oh, and I love how they design Tuesday's mom to look like the stereotypical "white person". She's so ugly lol.

    Interview with Nai Br.XX, singing voice of Carole.

    C: How did you get involved in the Carole & Tuesday project?

    N: I had already been working with label out in Japan, Sweet Soul Records. They had been pushing my tracks throughout Japan, so they submitted my music for the show.

    C: What drew you to Carole & Tuesday?

    NX: I liked that the anime is based in music. Every artist has a story of why they fell in love with music and the journey it took to get to success, so this story hits home to me in that way.

    C: Bones, Flying Dog, and Shinchiro Watanabe are practically anime’s Holy Trinity. How was it working with them?

    NX: I feel honored to be working with them. Everyone on the staff is super nice and patient, especially when it comes to the recording process!

    C: What was the process like?

    NX: Very simple. I was given the songs to learn, and when I got to Japan I recorded them. The actual doing was pretty fun. A lot of laughs and hard work!

    C: So are there any similarities between you and Carole?

    NX: It’s funny we actually joke about how I’m more like Tuesday and Celeina is more like Carole. Almost like our roles are switched.

    C: Are you a fan of anime?

    NX: When I was younger, I did watch the classic like Pokémon and Dragon Ball Z. As I got older I stoped, but having apart of this anime has sparked my interest again.


    C: Okay, so you just got back into anime. What are you watching?

    NX: I just started watching Naruto, but it’s too early to call my favorite character and what not.

    I just had a thought about Tuesday's family life. I mean we've already seen how easy it was for that random guy to find her, so if they really cared about her they'd have shown up to get her already. Of course, they're going to show up at the worst time for her but it's not like they have any urgency to get her back. Also seen how fake her mum is so Tuesday is probably going to affect her election campaign in some way probably.

    now that you mention it, though....Tuesday really blew her cover when she agreed to make an instagram account with Carole. I actually forgot how easy it is to find people's locations from their posts, and it was stupidly easy for Roddy to find Carole's home. Now that the video of the two of them went viral, there's no doubt that it will reach Tuesday's brother. I wonder if he really wants to bring her back, though. Maybe he'll side with her rather than their mam.

    Yeah was pretty dumb of her, especially when she said she couldn't use her credit card otherwise they'll find her.

    I forgot to post about it, but while ep 2 was fairly good, the pacing was weirdly jumpy. I'm not sure why it feels like they're in a rush to get started since they've got two cours.

    I'm not sure why but Akio Otsuka's voice sounded like it was recorded more poorly than everyone else's. It was really odd.

    6 minutes in and they're already referencing more artists like Bruno Mars and doing the Vogue 73 Questions bit. :catdefeat

    And Ertegun is such a self-absorbed douche that it's kinda funny. Not all DJs are like this :catsad

    So excited for May 29 to come so I can cop that OP/ED.
