Hard Rock Saves Space
29 September 2001 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Oji Tanaka's life sucks. He hates his job, his wife has just thrown away his most prized guitar and his son is using his old records as Frisbees. It all changes when Layla steps into his life. She asks him to take her into heaven. A loaded comment when you consider her figures, but it turns out she's an alien that needs him to play music to win an intergalactic war.

I first saw this series on Bandai's Wanted 2000 trailers disc and was curious; due to the visuals (strange opening sequence) and the great song playing. The series itself is funny and has a lot of heart. Through everything that happens, Oji finds himself again and has a different outlook on life.
