Throughout December 2017, Aki Hamaji has been serializing the Japanese four-panel manga Bocchi the Rock! in Houbunsha’s seinen manga publication Manga Time Kirara Max. Four Tank-Bon volumes have been used to collect it. In October 2022, CloverWorks debuted its adaptation of an animated tv show.
An introverted high school student named Bocchi The Rock! dreams of joining a band and performing live guitar in front of adoring crowds. The series, which debuted on October 9, is an anime rendition of the same-named manga written and illustrated by Aki Hamaji.
The introverted lead character Hitori Got, joined a band in the first few episodes of the show, obtained a part-time job to help pay for the band’s expenses, found a vocalist and taught her to play the guitar, and eventually secured a stage show for Kessoku Band. With the band’s completion around episode 5, the mystery of who the Kessoku Band is may now be answered.
Although Bocchi The Rock! is not a well-known franchise, Japanese rock musicians and fans have a lot to look forward to. Bocchi The Rock! might well be this fall’s undiscovered gem. Before the release, here is all you need to know about Bocchi The Rock!
What Is Bocchi The Rock! About?
Hitori Goto, the lonesome lead character in the television series Bocchi The Rock!, is a phenomenal guitarist despite having poor social skills and self-esteem. She aspires to be a part of a band and have friends, but because she lacks confidence in herself and effort to make new acquaintances, she leaves middle school without ever forming a single connection.
As “Bocchi” is the abbreviation for “Hitori-Bocchi,” which in Japanese signifies “lonely,” the title Bocchi The Rock! is a pun on her name. Hitori eventually runs into the band’s drummer, Nijika Ijichi, who extends an invitation for her to enter the Kessoku Band, launching her musical career and ascent to stardom.
The Kessoku Group has previously appeared in the studio Connect’s slice-of-life fishing animation Slow Loop. In the anime, the band eventually performs at a school festival.
It is unknown if the two universes are related. The two original manga volumes’ serialization in the well-known seinen publication Manga Time Kirara, which predominantly publishes 4-Koma manga series like K-On, is the most likely cause of this overlap.

Bocchi The Rock! About The Band
Bocchi The Rock! will cover the adventure of the lead character and her rock band, as one may infer from the program’s premise and the overall musical milieu that the characters visit. There is a lot to discover from each of the four characters, even if the viewers aren’t treated to a wholly original song until the fifth episode of the series.
Nijika Ijichi, the group’s founder, initially succeeded in finding a bassist and a guitarist who can sing lead; however, it quickly becomes apparent that the guitarist disappears for the most absurd of reasons. When fully staffed, the Kessoku Band is a four-piece ensemble made up of the drummer, a bassist, and two guitars.
One of the guitarists also sings lead, with the band’s bassist providing backup. The fact that each person in Kessoku Band takes their surname and position within the group from a member of the well-known Japanese rock band ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION is one of its most intriguing features.
