‘Carole & Tuesday‘ has quite an interesting storyline wherein humans have colonized Mars and in this new world, two titular characters try to make a name for themselves in the music industry. While the plot itself is not bad at all, it’s the music and the visuals of this show that will impress you the most. Unlike other similar music anime, what really stands out about this one’s story is how it manages to incorporate elements of sci-fi and subtly blends it with its existing main themes. The show depicts how the future of music will be heavily dependent on A.I., which actually seems to be not too far ahead in the future.
Apart from the two main characters, Carole and Tuesday, there are certain other side characters as well who get a fair amount of screen time. Coming from Studio Bones, known for producing anime like ‘Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood‘ and ‘My Hero Academia‘, the visuals are just beyond amazing. Even the songs, including the opening and closing themes, are all in English, which give them a more international appeal. Even the instrumental soundtracks are extremely pleasing to the ears and when these are coupled with some incredible stage setups, as a viewer, you just can’t wait for the duo’s next major performance.

10. Lost Song (2018)
Just like ‘Carole and Tuesday’, ‘Lost Song‘ is a recent music anime that tells the story of a young girl named Rin. One day, in the middle of a war, when her family is killed and her house is burned down, she finally understands why her singing was abandoned. All this time, her grandfather had kept her hidden from the world because he knew that her singing has magical powers. But if this falls in the wrong hands, it can prove to be a fatal weapon.
While ‘Carole & Tuesday’ combines music with futuristic sci-fi themes, ‘Lost Song’ does the same with its magical/supernatural theme. The main protagonist here is not an aspiring singer but only aims to live in a world that is more peaceful. The anime also involves another songstress named Finis, who just like Rin has a very tragic story of her own. Apart from having some great soundtracks, ‘Lost Song’ has an engaging fantasy-based story that will be enjoyable for all kinds of anime fans.
