i feel like this warrants a post since its Watanabe's baby, in Netflix jail, and involves a LOT of musicians. All the songs appear to be original too as far as i can tell and they're mostly really good.

The story so far is really good too. as of writing this we're on the episode 10 fucking cliffhanger.

I really enjoyed Crystal's song ("Unbreakable"), and the features by Thundercat and Denzel Curry were cool, but it felt like Watanabe tried to throw in too many themes and plotlines that were hastily resolved. Watanabe using contemporary social issues about immigration/refugees was okay, but the way it was done didn't impress me that much. And the show made the pop songs seem like they'd be amazing, but they were pretty generic, and this is coming from someone that does enjoy pop music. In regards to music anime, I think Nodame Cantabile is still my favorite, unless you want to count K-ON! as a music anime.

and music being the throughline
i thought all the songs were wayyyyy better than they should have been for what it is. i don't think too many of them blew me out of the water, but i think they more than did a really good job of sounding like they'd be hits in a fictional universe.
