We have great news for all you Detroit Metal City
fans! The DMC movie that came out in Japan last summer is hitting NYC this month! Actually, if you're that
interested here are the specifics:What:
Detroit metal city, live action movie!
Souichi Negishi is a conservative and pure-minded boy, who came to
Tokyo from the country in Japan with a dream of becoming a fancy pop-
song musician. He writes a song “Raspberry Kiss“ to send to a music
label, however, by a mere accident, he is forced to make a debut as
the member of the satanic Death metal band “Detroit Metal City” (DMC),
whose trademark is an eccentric make-up and destructive performance.
Despite of Souichi’s hope of becoming a lovely pop musician, DMC’s
debut single “SATSUGAI - genocide” (which used to be “Raspberry Kiss”
before arranged by the madly strange music label’s owner) achieves
explosive sales, and Johannes Krauser II bounces up to the position of
charisma in the Japanese Death Metal music scene.
Meanwhile, his girlfriend Ms. Aikawa, who loves cute outfit and French
pop songs, does not know the fact that Souichi becomes Johannes
Krauser II. Therefore, Souichi has to live with the extreme caution to
keep this biggest secret not to disappoint her.
After its sensational debut, DMC continues to build up “legends” as a
Death Metal band – defeating a rival band on stage and messed up the
live show of the No. 1 Japanese HIP-HOP artist, to name a few. Souichi
always, in all of the cases, first tries to act nicely but presses all
the wrong buttons to end up in creating the image of furious Johannes
Krauser II. One day, when DMC is totally recognized as an up-and-
coming Death Metal band throughout the country, Souichi has received
unexpected news. The legendary Metal artist, Jack IL Dark, starts his
world tour and DMC is named to perform on his stage in Japan. The
members of DMC and the fans are thrilled to hear the news, but it
gives Souichi (chicken-hearted) a shudder•••
