This is a crazy fun film! VIZ Pictures is very excited to announce our recent acquisition of Detroit Metal City, a movie based on the #1 death metal comedy manga series written by Kiminori Wakasugi. Starring our favorite Kenichi Matsuyama of Death Note, NANA, and Linda Linda Linda, and with a gimmick appearance by Gene Simmons himself, this death metal flick has some of the greatest live music scenes! As a “somtimes-so-wrong” manga that turned into a thrashing movie, we can’t wait for this live-action title to be released here in the US later this fall. Get ready to be rocked!
