Summary:
From Tokyopop:
For the first 14 years of his life, Yukio Tanaka has been one heck of a boring guy. He has no hobbies, weak taste in music, and only a small vestige of a personality. He yearns for an exciting life, but his shy, and somewhat neurotic personality makes him his own worst enemy. Little does he know that his life will be forever changed when he meets Ryusuke Minami, a wild and unpredictable 16-year old fresh from America, who happens to be in a rock-and-roll band named after his Frankenstein-like patched dog--Beck.

A lot of anime and manga fall into the king-of-the-hill cliche, following some young upstart as he ascends the corporate ladder of his given universe to rise to the top of his game.

The series' protagonist starts as a complete novice who knows nothing about music. He finds two-fold inspiration in the form of an exchange student, just back from the States with guitar in hand, and (read more)

The first time I've seen the anime was 4 years ago. Since then I've always wanted to read the manga, but didn't had quite the time,and I thought that it had the same story as the anime. Wrong!!! It had so many details that I was stuned. The manga covers where one of those things . Harold Sakuishi made a combination between Beck characters and real life cd covers(e.g. Pearl Jam,Red Hot Chili Peppers,Nirvana,AC/DC,Patti Smith,Beastie Boys etc.)and the movie Lost Highways. For me it's a manga that everyone must read.
