Review of "CAROLE & TUESDAY" 9/1/18 by Suzanne
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.  That is quite some contrast. You expect that maybe it will be like the old Josie 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.

One character, Carole, is a woman of color who is tough and dresses in overalls. The other, Tuesday, is dressed up like a little doll.  Carole is already living on the streets when she's found by 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 music.

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.


Fifty years have passed since mankind began migrating to the new frontier: Mars. It’s an age where most culture is produced by AI, and people are content to be passive consumers.

There’s a girl. Scrapping a living in the metropolis of Alba City, she’s working part time while trying to become a musician. She’s always felt like something is missing.
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 musician, but nobody around her understands. She feels like the loneliest person in the world. Her name is Tuesday.

A chance meeting brings them together.
They want to sing.
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.
But that wave will eventually grow into something larger..."

From Wikipedia: Carole & Tuesday (キャロル&チューズデイ Kyaroru & Chūzudei) is a 24-episode anime television series directed by Shinichirō Watanabe. It is produced by studio Bones, in commemoration for the studio's 20th anniversary and the 10th anniversary of record label FlyingDog. It premiered on April 10, 2019 on Fuji TV's +Ultra programming block. A manga adaptation by Morito Yamataka began serialization in Young Ace in May 2019. An English version is available worldwide on Netflix.

Set in the future on a partially terraformed Mars, teenager Tuesday Simmons runs away from her posh lifestyle as the daughter of a politician and makes her way to Alba City to pursue her dream of being a musician with just a suitcase and her Gibson acoustic guitar. On her first day in the city, she crosses paths with Carole Stanley, another aspiring musician who plays the piano, and the two decide to team up as a singer-songwriter duo under the name Carole & Tuesday.
