Having great theme songs is an essential for all anime, but even more so for shows about music itself. This season’s BOCCHI THE ROCK! rose to the challenge and is already blowing us away with opening theme “Seishun Complex” and ending theme “Distortion!!” performed by the cast’s Yakusoku Band — Yoshino Aoyama, Saku Mizuno, Sayumi Suzushiro and Ikumi Hasegawa — which you can now jam out to nonstop with the official videos below.
“Seishun Complex” is written by Ai Higuchi (Attack on Titan Final Season ED) and composed by otoha, while “Distortion!!” is written and composed by KANA-BOON vocalist Maguro Taniguchi (My Hero Academia Season 4 OP2). Both are arranged by Mitsui Ritsuo.
Based on the manga by Aki Hamaji, BOCCHI THE ROCK! is directed by Keiichiro Saito (Sonny Boy key animator) and assistant-directed by Yusuke Yamamoto (WONDER EGG PRIORITY key animator) at studio CloverWorks, with series composition by Erika Yoshida (Tower of God), character designs by Kerorira (WONDER EGG PRIORITY animation director) and music by Tomoki Kikuya (BLEND-S).

Hitori Gotoh, “Bocchi-chan,” is a girl who’s so introverted and shy around people that she’d always start her conversations with “Ah…”
During her middle school years, she started playing the guitar, wanting to join a band because she thought it could be an opportunity for even someone shy like her to also shine. But because she had no friends, she ended up practicing guitar for six hours every day all by herself.
After becoming a skilled guitar player, she uploaded videos of herself playing the guitar to the internet under the name “Guitar Hero” and fantasized about performing at her school’s cultural festival concert. But not only could she not find any bandmates, before she knew it, she was in high school and still wasn’t able to make a single friend!
She was really close to becoming a shut-in, but one day, Nijika Ijichi, the drummer in Kessoku Band, reached out to her. And because of that, her everyday life started to change little by little…
