Audio Face Off: Ray and Mike Sound Off on Detroit Metal City


Here’s a little experiment–an audio version of one of our now-regular feature, the Face Off. Here, we have a rambling conversation about the recently concluded Detroit Metal City, one of the most outrageous and yet hilarious comedies to come along in anime in a while. We talk not only about the final episode but also about the manga, and why there doesn’t seem to be any bands today that are like DMC.

As befits a show of its nature–this audio file is tagged “Explicit” in iTunes. Unless you want your kid to be like Krauser-tan, we suggest, as Negishi does, that your child listen to something else. 🙂
