What's a band to do with no fame and especially no sold-out arena to perform in? How can they grab the cash they need to build the Concert Dome of their DREAMS?! Well they can't. But the NERIMA DAIKON BROTHERS sure as hell are going to try! WATCH as Hideki Ichiro and Mako (yeah one of them's a chick!) farm daikon by day and battle slimy record producers, pachinko-mad hags, monstrous nurses, flatulent hospital administrators and hot police babes by night. LISTEN as the band AND the evil villains sing hilarious songs all along the bumpy daikon-studded road! TUNE IN AND SEE!!! (What's daikon? Is it a vegetable? Is it a fruit? A weapon? A girl's best friend? All of the above?! )

Sub-genre: Musical Comedy (Don't run, it's really good!)
Situations: Probably PG+ Hideki loves cousin Mako, Mako loves cousin Ichiro, Ichiro loves a panda bear...
Language: Probably R
Nudity: Probably PG Not really any that's not entirely lacking in detail and colored spandex
Violence: PG Cartoon Violence
Language options: Dub, Sub no Dub with subtitles. Usually I'd complain, but the translation required a lot of changes to get the jokes to work and I like the English version better (not being fluent in Japanese).
Special Features: Nothing worth mentioning. Except: There are commentaries under the languages menu (in Japanese) for some reason. Since I don't like commentaries, I had no problem with that.
First: I LOVED the English ending theme and in answer to it; You're welcome!
This is the story of 3 cousins that make up a blues/rock band (The Nerima Daikon Brothers) who are trying to get the money to build their own dome to perform in, as was their childhood dream. After getting ripped off at a paid audition (that was fake), they turn vigilante against con artists, swindlers, and bad-guys in general. But
they always manage to come out with less than they started with.
This series parodies the Blues Brothers and, more briefly, a lot of iconic American movies and shows as well as some Animes. I found it hilarious and it has become my favorite comedy Anime. What better can I say about it?
the heights of inspired lunacy reached by his exemplary EXCEL SAGA (What does?) but it's still a
pretty entertaining show. At the current price, it's a bargain, even if it's only 12 episodes
long. You have the choice of Japanese or English, and all of the songs in the English version
are in English. There's also a commentary track featuring Nabeshin and some voice actors.
The story concerns a group of daikon farmers who fantasize about being in a rock band and
building a stadium at which they can perform. Each episode finds them trying to come up with
ways to get money, mostly by stealing from shady businesses. As usual, Nabeshin himself is a
regular character. Here, he rents out devices that help the farmers in their efforts.
Toward the end of the series, there is a villainous character who is clearly based on the late
Michael Jackson, at whom the script pokes merciless fun. Though it was done before Jackson's
death, hardcore fans who believe that MJ could do no wrong are advised to beware!
Get this one if you like anime comedies, as the jokes fly at breakneck speed, though most of
the humor is decidedly adult-oriented. Nobody does this sort of thing like Nabeshin!
It is about two brothers and their cousin who dress like the Blues Brothers trying to get enough money to build a concert dome to perform where their diakon field is now. They constantly get scammed by bad guys, get help from a rental guy white with an Afro who always has the right object to help them beat the crooks and steal their money, but they always lose it by the end of the episode. Its fun and full of laughs.
This show is great for those loving satire (Japanese satire which may be unheard of in the west), music and a hilarious and random story line. It is rated R for a reason though, and is a perfect addition to a mature Anime fan's video library
