Episode 5 : MF
Please read the notes behind the cut, it's long but you'll learn many things about japanese music ! (and it took me hours to write it XD)
This episode is about music and there are many references to 80's & 90's bands and artists.
In Japan, they love to abbreviate band's name especially when they're long. Kousuke's band is Brain Busters (ブレーン・バスターズ). The contracted form is ブレバス, I decide to translate it as Brebus in romaji. It's not really pretty...

Band boom : From the middle of the 80's, it's called the second Band Boom in Japan (the first was in the end of the 70's). The first bands were BOØWY, Hound dog and Rebecca. Then the "four heavenly kings" reigned over Japan : The blue hearts, Unicorn, The boom and Jun Sky Walker(s). In 1991, 510 bands got their major debut !
Ikasu band Tengoku (aka IkaTen) : The "battle of the bands"-style show aired on TBS from 1989 to 1991, featured up-and-coming amateurs and was the first introduction of straight-ahead rock & roll to Japanese TV. Bands are judged by an established jury and the winner is called "Ika King".
Yoshida Ken : composer, arranger & music producer. Till march 1990, he was a jury's member in IkaTen and known to be very severe with the bands saying with like "What was that ?" "How did this band even manage to get through preliminary !" and "Stop music please". But there were times when he apologized for his cold attitude.
Chage & aska : japanese popular music duo formed in 1979. To anime fans, their name is associated with the short movie On your mark produced by Ghibli. In this episode, Kogure is talking about the duo because in their Yah yah yah song, they put their arms in the air while singing.
