Shingo and Kan are rivaling musicians who hate each other’s guts. But given the opportunity to form a successful pop duo they have to leave their differences behind. To be fair, the plot is not the selling point of this musical comedy based on Haruo CHIKADA’s eponymous album. Instead, Macoto TEZKA, son of the famous manga artist Osamu TEZUKA, delivers a smorgasbord of ridiculously funny ideas.
