“Detroit Metal City” movie opens March 19th!


Opening  on March 19th here in local cinemas comes the live action movie Detroit Metal City, adapted from the popular comedy manga and anime of the same name. Detroit Metal City (or DMC for short) started out as a gag manga that is still ongoing and was recently adapted into a 12 part Anime OVA by Studio 4 degrees.  This 103minute live action incarnation sees the title character Souichi Negishi played by Kenichi Matsuyama who also starred as L in the live action versions of Death Note.

In DMC, Negishi is a conservative momma’s boywho has left his countryside home for Tokyo in hopes of being a popular pop singer. Ironically, he finds fame as the violent and controversial lead singer, Johannes Krauser II,  of the underground death metal band, Detroit Metal City. Despite despising his alter ego, his amazing talents as Krauser earns him an ever growing following so he struggles to keep up with his second life as well as to hide his dual identity.


Once again brought to you by Encore Films , they will be holding a tie in promotional event called the “Detroit Metal City Showdown” at The Heeren on 14 March 2009, 5pm. Prior to this event, they will be also having a  Trendy Mushroom Hairstyle Hunt!

      A really late reply, but it’s a reference to earlier in the film when he lifts her skirt at the concert– her underwear had chicks on it.
