Ryusuke inspires Yukio to get into music, and the two begin a journey through the world of rock 'n' roll dreams!

A major manga : you can't avoid it if you have any interest in rock & roll .
-is there another artwork which has better depicted the creation and the rise of a band ? there is a strong documentary trend in this manga about the music distribution network and it is also a nice introduction to the rock music world with many references to its legends .
- from the mere point of view of art
with its OST's and its anime version it becomes a landmark in the manga history : except RedGarden which is very recent , no one else has showed such a synchronism between the action and the music .

very good character development. I really like how the magnaka is a huge fan of the chili peppers. and the art is superb. great story for any band junkies out there.

i still droll over Lucille wonderful guitar and they look exactly like their real life counterparts.


hell the soundtrack from the anime is great too. I have it on my Ipod

Greatest Music Manga!

When it comes to music, BECK is the best manga there is!

The drawing in the first part is not that good, you'll just have to bare with it for a while.. but as the story goes on the drawing will improve.. a lot, together with the story.
