Black Heaven Vol. #1

The Review!
Okay, let me tell you I went in hoping for a show that was comparable to Macross, but I came up with something different, but not dissappointing.
The disc has for episodes, a japanese laguage track, and set of lackluster extras that don't need to be mentioned. The menu sucks, but as an anime fan, it is all about content, right?

The show is about Oji, the lead singer, and guitarist of black heaven, a now defunct band. The first four episodes deal with is life as a drone, that, by some glorious stroke of luck meets an alien, don't worry looks like a human, and very easy on the eyes, and is asked to play his music to power their ultimatae weapon. The show, form that point on deals with the goosiping neighbors, the idiodic assistants, and of course, the family. There are many fununy parts in this, but what shines is the music, and the story telling. The opening song "Cautionary Warning" by John Sykes makes me want to be an instigator. The music is rock, par to the saying on the back cover, "Hard Rock Saves Space."

As I said, this disc isn't much on extras, no trailers at all, but the show, and amazing voicework, is well worth it. This show has helped this lonely macrossotaku through nights when great music proves supreme.
