    • Synopsis
    • Soichi Negishi is a boy (still a virgin) who loves trendy easy-listening pop music like Swedish Pop. He moves to Tokyo, dreaming to make a debut as a professional singer with the music he loves. However, instead, he ends up being hired by “Death-Records” with a slave-like contract, being forced to sing “not trendy”, “not pop” but truly “satanical” Death-Metals. Being set up as the lead guitar-vocalist “Johannes Krauser II” of the Death-Metal band “Detroit Metal City”(aka DMC), he ends up making an indie-record debut.
