Review of "CAROLE
airs now on Netflix
This is an odd animated series from Japan. In one sense, it's very ordinary
because it's about young girls who are trying to make their way in the big city
with their music. On the other hand, it takes place in the future, on Mars.

and the Pussycats series (teenaged girls playing music). In part, it is
sort of like that. The characters are more three-dimensional, though, and the
show is darker.

Tuesday, who has just arrived and had her suitcase
stolen. Tuesdays hears Carole playing piano
and singing on the street, which moves her deeply.
The two end up playing together to make beautiful
Tuesday is from a rich family. Her parents are
very cold. Her father is a politician. Carole
is an orphan. Another girl, Angela, is a famous
model but wants to be a singer. She has a very
domineering mother. What's unsual about this
show is that all of the adults are really awful.
In most animated children's shows, the parents are
loving and happy.
It really seems to be a show for kids or teens.
It's not something that I would keep watching.
Middle school and high school students should enjoy
it or perhaps those who really like anime.

Her name is Carole.
There’s a girl. Born to a wealthy family in the
provincial town of Herschel City, she dreams of becoming a

They want to make music.
Together, they feel
like they just might have a chance.
The two of them may only create a tiny wave.
