Souichi Negishi is a shy young man who came from the rural Ota Prefecture to Tokyo for college and wished to become a kindergarten teacher. However, for some reason he became the singer and songwriter of a metal band named "Detroit Metal City," with a stage name "Johannes Krauser II." Whenever he wears the heavy makeup, Negishi becomes a completely different person, shouting the most vulgar profanities beyond anyone's imagination. With the popularity of DMC increases, Negishi starts worrying his double personalities can have negative effects on his (romantic) life off stage.

I did not expect to like this show since I don't like Heavy Metal music but i'm glad I watched this because this is one of the best anime comedies i've ever seen. Both extremes of Negishi's character were well done and the jokes never went stale over the 12 episode series. It also had a fairly interesting art style that made it look like you were watching animated manga panels as it would often have a different shaped frame around many shots.
