Carole & Tuesday is a musical anime directed by Shinichiro Watanabe and celebrates Studio Bones’ 20th anniversary and FlyingDog’s 10th anniversary.
Carole & Tuesday is a series that has been anticipated by a lot of anime fans and you might wonder why: well, it’s because its production is handled by a lot of big names in the industry. First of all, the series is in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the fantastic animation studio Bones and the 10th anniversary of the Flying Dog record label. It’s also an original story that claims to be something between Cowboy Bebop and NANA, so if that doesn’t grab your attention, I don’t know what else will. As a matter of fact, Shinichiro Watanabe, the actual director of Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo is the chief director for the show, something that you can really tell by the whole style and visuals of the series.
The story is simple: two young girls from completely different backgrounds meet up under unusual circumstances, start jamming, and decide to make music together. Everything is taking place on Mars, probably somewhere in the near future since there is a lot of advanced technology lying around, so you can expect it to have a lot of sci-fi feels to it as well. Needless to say that the music, the animation, voice acting, and general production is top notch, so if you would like to see a music anime with some quality visuals this season, then Carole & Tuesday is a great choice.
