It has been 50 years since mankind began its migration to the terraformed Mars, where they live in comfort due to advancements in AI. Carole lives in the metropolis of Alba City, working part-time by day and playing keyboard by night. Tuesday has run away from her home in Hershell City to escape the grip of her wealthy family, and instead hopes to pursue music with her acoustic guitar.
After a fateful encounter, the two decide to perform music together. Up against the AI singers that dominate the music world, the two of them believe that together they can convey their feelings through their songs. Will hard work and luck be enough for the duo to create the biggest miracle that Mars has ever seen? [Written by MAL Rewrite]
Carol and Tuesday is set in a futuristic setting where the two main characters Carol and Tuesday have a fateful encounter with one another and decide to bring back Authentic music. I’ve watched a lot of music anime in the past and its safe to say that this one is not like any of the others. Even though it gave me some Beck feels but they are nothing alike…
What’s special about the anime is the relationship between Carol and Tuesday and how they write music together. The show is mostly Slice of Life, about their everyday life then it picks up and becomes more about their music Career and how they aspire to become the next big thing. Along the way they come across a compilation Best New Artist Grammy’s which they try to win. The interesting thing about this anime other than the relationship is the music… since its a music anime and all.
They tackled every music genre, From Pop to Jazz to Techno, to Rap, to Hiphop to Rock… and the songs were not shabby at all. Here is an example of their songs:
Also the coolest thing about the anime that other music anime doesn’t share is that Carol & Tuesday are real. I mean they are really musicians that have been playing together and all. Here they are:
So yeah every aspect about that show warms my heart and its set in the future. As much as I enjoyed it and Loved the Show, I felt like something was missing.. I’m not sure what it is though. If you guys have an opinion about it I would love to hear it and maybe you can help me figure out what was missing.
