I'm too old to like this show but I really do.
8 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's a classic story of a young group forming a band and wanting fame.

But it's much more. The music is great and the characters are very likable.

It's also an interesting look at the life of a teenager fitting into his culture/social environment in Japan.

When I was in my teens I had a dream of being in a successful band, and now being close to 50 BECK is a fun flashback as to what it might be like.

The pace of the series is slow, the story could have been told easily in half the number of episodes. it may take 5 or 6 to get you hooked. But the slow pace really adds to the texture of the story.

I do hope a DVD of the series is planned.

As a life long resident of Seattle the final episode is a real treat.
