Unless you’ve lived under a rock for the past few months, you’ve heard about Kessoku Band. The CGDCT quartet was everywhere on social media and for good measure. Not only did their anime ‘Bocchi The Rock‘ top anime lists, Kessoku Band’s first album titled “Kessoku Band” debuted at #1 on Billboard Japan’s download album chart and managed to top the Hot Album Charts, Oricon Album Charts, and Digital Album Charts (the first for an all-female group) and received Gold Certification. It even reached a million monthly listeners on Spotify, a feat any artist would be proud of.

Bocchi the Rock, follows the titular Hitoti “Bocchi” Gotou, a socially awkward loner who desperately tries to make friends but fails at every turn. As she takes her guitar to school one day, she attracts the attention of Nijika Ijichi, who quickly asks her to help out as a session guitarist in her band. Seeing a chance to get the friends and life she wanted, she becomes a permanent fixture of the band, where they progress towards their goals. The first season of the show is currently on Crunchyroll.
