Hit me with BECK

(l-R) Maho, Chiba, Yuji, Koyuki, Taira, and Ryusuke

Excited akong malamang na mga sikat na members ng mga banda ang magpapahiram ng kanilang boses sa isang hit na anime na ito- ang BECK- Mongolian Chop Squad. Naalala ko nung lumabas ang balita tungkol dito ay lumabas talaga ako sa banyo kahit may shampoo pa ang buhok ko! At ang ending, pinagalitan ako syempre! Ewan ko ba... Basta ganyang banda,musika, at anime ang pinag-uusapan ay nawawala ako sa sariling katinuan... (lol)

So, here I am. I end up googling for the newest anime to hit Hero TV on April 14. Directed by Koabayashi Osamu and written by Harold Sakuishi, the story was a big hit in the
United States and I believe it will receive good remarks by the time it will be aired on Philippine Television.

The story revolves around Yukio, known by his friends as Koyuki, is a regular 14 year old Japanese boy who enters junior high school with two childhood acquaintances. One is now a useless pervert, and ironically the other is a highly sought after female student. Koyuki's boring life is changed when he saves an odd looking dog from some kids (a pack of dogs in the manga). The owner of the dog (named Beck) turns out to be an emerging rock musician, Minami Ryusuke. The two become friends and their crazy, fun, and sometimes dangerous music adventure begins.

The story focuses on the trials and tribulations of their Punk and rapcore band named BECK Mongolian Chop Squad in the United States, since the name Beck is already taken, when their first independent album is released over there). There's also an important subplot that deals with Koyuki's relationship with Ryusuke's sister Maho. (

Here are the main characters in BECK-Mongolian Chop Squad Filipino Style:

Sam Concepcion as Koyuki Tanaka, backup guitar and vocals
Rico Blanco of Rivermaya as Ryusuke Minami, lead guitar
Yael Yuzon of Sponge Cola as Yuji Sakurai, drums
Teddy Corpuz of Rocksteddy as Chiba Tsunemi, lead vocals
Raimund Marasigan of Sandwich as Taira Yoshiyuki, bass
The Dawn’s Jet Pangan as Saitou Ken’ichi, Koyuki’s guitar teacher
