The Greatful Sound Festival is out of control with wild weather and wilder music. The chaos and pressure are getting to Beck... In fact the band is falling apart! As Koyuki takes the stage to a growing crowd the lucky ones will be able to say "I was there." When the set ends nobody can say for sure what will happen tomorrow.As the music fades away the future is cloudy and it might just be time to move on. But as the legend of their gig takes on a life of its own America is waiting outside the window of a van. The road is a long one but some fires can burn forever.Contains episodes 23-26FestivalThird StageSlip OutAmericaSystem Requirements:Running Time: 100 minutesFormat: DVD Genre: ANIMATION/ANIME UPC: 704400067860 Manufacturer No: 0

For starters, I love this show. The way the series ended was absolutely great. My problem isn't with the show itself but with the DVD. In episode 24 they changed the "I got a feelin" from the version that was originally aired. Even if you have the Japaneese audio on, the song is still switched. The original version was hundreds of times better. For the life of me I can't figure out why on earth they changed it. Unless, there were some copyright issues or something. Basically, buy the DVD for the end of the series but at the same time try to find an original version of episode 24 and you'll see what I mean.

Firstly, I really love this series, and I was also disappointed that they changed to song in episode 24. I don't have any problems with the plot line, I think everything works nicely. And I would like to point out, the story isn't over! They only made 24 episodes for the anime, but the story continues in the manga. You'll have to read it to find out what happens with Maho and the band! :]

BECK is one of those anime series that I wish more people would take a chance on because in spite of its flaws, it is a great series.

And in this final DVD, we get a great conclusion to a great series.

It opens with BECK at the Greatful Sound rock festival. Things are not going well for them. Ryuusuke has made a deal that seems to spell the doom for BECK that leads to a falling out that threatens the performance.

The events that unfold at the Greatful Sound festival are a bit cheesy but it works for anyone who has ever gotten to witness a once-in-a-life performance from a new band (I remember seeing Stevie Ray Vaughn when he was just starting so I know the trill that goes up the spine when realizing that the performer is something special).

But there is nothing cheesy about the aftermath of the performance as the series stays true to its sublime realism.

Yet good things come to those who persevere and in this case, it is the quiet Koyuki who shows why he is the "hero".

To be sure, there are flaws in this series. The most obvious are: 1) The animation could be a little uneven and 2) the Leon Sykes plot turn is a bit weird and I'm not sure if it was necessary.

But in spite of the flaws, obvious and not so obvious, the overall story of a young man finding his dream in life and the birth of a band that could be something special more than makes up for the flaws.

And I admit that at the last note of the last episode, I found myself a little sad that it was over because it was clear that the journey for Koyuki and his band had really just begun.

Yet, that's what makes this series so great. The journey really hasn't ended so that last note lingers just the way it is supposed to.

So I am a big Beck fan. The music is spectacular and the story is fantastic. I really enjoyed the series, but this last disc, and the whole Lucille story arc seemed rushed and unneeded. I really don't understand why there were gangsters in this show what so ever. Also, the main character does get the girl, but barely. I'm still not sure if they are or not, I'm not looking for a down and dirty sex scene, but a better clarification would be nice!!!!!

The individual cases come with a different Beck: MCS guitar pick in each dvd case, great for the avid fan.
