Detroit Metal City – Ever Watched Death Note? Don’t Blink Your Eyes This is the Other Side of L
Death Metal City? Had seen Death Note? How is the character of the protagonist L? Eccentric? Cool? Haha … do not be surprised, the main character in this film is also played by character actor L in Death Note. Um … what should I say? Cool L will disappear after you wacth this movie.
The main character in this film is Soichi Negishi. He has a dream to become a fashionable pop musicians. To realize his dream he moved from his hometown to Tokyo.
He appeared as a pop musician on the road, but his performance is far from people like i think. The strains of Soichi’s pop was annoying in my ear. Come on Soichi, you can do better than that (my support for Soichi back then).
Detroit Metal City – No Music No Dream
His motto is “No Music No Dream” but, that’s where the problem start. The motto may also imply he must turn to any music as the beginning, no need to pop music first. Finally, Souichi ended in Death Metal music. Very far from original purpose is not it?
More cool again Soichi even became a Death Metal vocalist. More cool again his name changed to John Krauser 2.
More cool again (there’s more??) his nature change when he became the vocalist.
Amazingly again, this time he was successful. He has many admirers, um …. the word “devotee” may be more suitable for Soichi’s fans as John Krauser 2. The fan always glorify his name when he on stage. Um..almost forget, the band name is Detroit Metal City (as same as the title of this movie).
Even when on the stage, Soichi changed completely in his heart he is still a Pop Idol wannabe. Sometimes he does not want to ignore his conscience, but he could not to get out from Detroit Metal City band for some reason. Did you guess it was because his life motto? Teeet tooot …. (read: wrong … wrong … the real answer is because Soichi scared to the manager of the band (oh.. come on Soichi …. Manager of Death Metal City band is Death Metal lover style woman . I admitted that she was quite creepy.
Well, apparently Soichi life conflict did not stop there. He then met a college friend, a woman named Yuri Aikawa. Souichi actually fell in love with Aikawa. But! In fact, Aikawa hated Death Metal music.
Back then, Aikawa had met Soichi as Krauser and experience problems, the more she hates the Death Metal music. Because of that, Soichi did not want Aikawa know he is Krauser. How Souichi life next? How about his love to Aikawa? What about his goals as a pop musician?
