Would you watch an anime about the Beatles?
How about like an action series based off Beatles' songs?
Not something dumb like Jojo where they're just arbitrarily and awkwardly naming characters after shit, but rather making plots out of the lyrics and themes of the various songs.
/mu/ here, we were talking about a Beatles anime a little while ago and we stumbled upon an entire network of Beatles crazed fujos.
They make fan art upon fan art, and fan fics about the Beatles and everything else fujos do
Beatlesmania is still alive and well
I could dump what I found if you're interested in this kind of cringe.
It's way too tumblr for my tastes, but I guess it is
>only one band member in the studio at a time
I'm not going to lie, I wouldn't mind a Beatles anime, even if it's fujobait
Tumblr is filled with the crazed, I tell ya.
>There will never be a deliberately innacurate and exaggerated anime biopic on Richard D. James where Richard D. James voices himself, and phonetically tries to speak his Japanese lines.
The soundtrack could be whatever he makes after being locked in a room for three hours with a DAW and a Microkorg.
What would a cute anime girl version of GG Allin look like?
No, because the japanese have a really hard time making their characters act like actual human beings. We only tolerate anime because we know we are treating with fictional characters following (annoying) archetypes.
The fact that so many books still name the Beatles as "the greatest or most significant or most influential" rock band ever only tells you how far rock music still is from becoming a serious art. Jazz critics have long recognized that the greatest jazz musicians of all times are Duke Ellington and John Coltrane, who were not the most famous or richest or best sellers of their times, let alone of all times.
Classical critics rank the highly controversial Beethoven over classical musicians who were highly popular in courts around Europe. Rock critics are still blinded by commercial success. The Beatles sold more than anyone else (not true, by the way), therefore they must have been the greatest. Jazz critics grow up listening to a lot of jazz music of the past, classical critics grow up listening to a lot of classical music of the past. Rock critics are often totally ignorant of the rock music of the past, they barely know the best sellers. No wonder they will think that the Beatles did anything worthy of being saved.
Would you watch an anime about the Norwegian black metal scene in the early nineties?
Anime about cute german boys making cute electronic music when?
This is the only excuse I will ever have to post this, so I'm taking it.
