Koyuki is a puny, shy typical geek with no passion in his life at all until the day he meets a jacked-up dog named Beck. The dog's owner happens to be a shining star of the local rock scene and introduces him to a band named Dying Breed. It changes his life. The pop idol fanatic is instantly struck and begins learning to play guitar. It will be one hell of a journey. Beck's owner Ryusuke's (Ray for short) band has just fallen apart and the wannabe pro is on the lookout for the members to build "the ultimate band". Koyuki tags along and immerses himself in the local music scene, meeting Ray's gorgeous, charming, jet-setting sister Maho, who is a singer. The two hit it off, and the relationship will have it's ups, down, and hot and cold spots throughout the series. Eventually, the band BECK comes to be with a ragtag lineup that is impossible to resist. Ryusuke: the hot-as-lava lead guitar phenom. Taira: the ice cold pro on the bass. Chiba: local maniac with a rap-influenced vocal delivery on the mic whipping crowds into a frenzy. Saku: self-taught drummer and Koyuki's backbone. Koyuki: green as grass beginner whose vulnerable rhythm guitar and emotional singing will make BECK a sensation....if they can stay together. The cast of characters in the is series is amazing.Read more ›
HOW WRONG I WAS. The series grabbed me from the first second to the last. To give you a quick rundown,
-Character Development- The main character was very realistic and likable. You feel how he feels while he's getting bullied, has his first kiss, has a fight with a good friend, etc. Not to mention how much you see him grow and mature throughout the series. Your with him every minute that he practices his guitar. As some of the previous reviews suggest, the support characters also have their own distinct personalities that set them apart from the norm. They each have their own distinguishing qualities that will make you love each and every one.
-Music - It was surprisingly good. I found myself humming "blue moon sways" for weeks after I watched the series... bah...I'm humming it now.
-Realistic - The characters are not masters of everything, each has their own strengths and weaknesses comparable to real-life individuals.
-Action - For an anime without any...it sure had alot. There were the constant intermingling conflicts with band members, record producers, mysteries of the past(Beck), and of course girls. Never did the series feel boring or drab.
-Dubbing - as the previous reviews suggested...amazing
Cons: I did have a few minor quips with the series...
- Ending? - It came too soon and the last two episodes were rushed. Seems to be an excellent setup for a season II.
- Mysteries revealed? - There were many things that were never revealed in the end.Read more ›
Beck is undoubtedly one of the most entertaining shows I've ever seen. Apart from Cowboy Bebop I don't think I've ever seen an anime that was as much fun as this one was. It has a lot in common with Bebop in fact; both share similar strengths (although Bebop doesn't really have a weakness and Beck does), namely great characters and soundtrack.
Kyukee is a middle school boy meandering through life without a sense of purpose. He, like many his age, lacks anything to be passionate about or any real hope for the future. That all changes one day when he runs into an ugly mutt named Beck and his owner, Ryuskee, who introduces him to the world of rock and teaches him how to play guitar. From that point on Kyukee is a driven young man who spends his every waking moment honing his skills. Ryuskee meanwhile has just broken up with his old band and is on the lookout to form the perfect band. The end result is Beck, or the Mongolian Chop Squad as it's known in America.
The music is far and away the best part about this show. If Beck were a real band, I'd probably be a fan, and you can bet that I'm going to buy the soundtrack for this show.Read more ›

My #1 favorite Anime! It's better in English (included). The essence of being one who truly rocks is refined when the language barriers are graciously removed by the dubbing team. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Honestbattler
