"Detroit Metal City is about a death metal band that has gained immense popularity in the indie scene. The main character is a push-over, Negichi Souchi, who is trying to make a living in the music world, but he didn't imagine in his wildest dreams that it would be in such a band. Read and see what hilarious situations he gets himself into."
Both the manga and the anime for this series are completely hilarious. As a big Metal fan, myself, the parody was all the more satisfying, but the brilliance of each chapter/episode of the series will reach anyone. Don't miss out on this one.
I highly suggest the anime, which I actually viewed after reading the manga... it's probably the best adaptation I've seen, the animation, sounds, and pacing are genius. And the music in the series, whether it be Death Metal or Swedish Pop, are actually on par with real bands (despite the obviously satirically retarded lyrics).
