Creating a rock band that would appeal to a wide market would be extremely hard to do. You need characters with charisma, edge, looks, and that killer smile. So if you were to take 5 anime characters and create a rock band out of them…who would they be? Well…here’s five characters that I’ve thrown together to make what I think would be the best anime idol rock band.
**please note this is based on the characters’ appearance and personality…not musical talent, since…I probably don’t know that**
Luka Crosszeria (Uraboku) - Bass
On the bass guitar, I would select Luka Crosszeria from Uraboku. Luka is one sexy man and he will have fangirls falling head over heels for him an instant because of his dark sexy look. However, what will have them hooked for sure is his mysterious aura…after all, the man is quiet, emotionless, and has a gaze that will pierce your soul. He may not want the attention, but he will definitely be a popular member of the group, just don’t expect to see him smile anytime soon.
Hihara Kazuki (La Corda D’oro) - Drums
Back on the drums, I would put Hihara Kazuki from La Corda D’oro, who is the only one that we know can actually play an instrument…although it’s the trumpet and not the drums. I would put Hihara on the drums because he is a lively guy that can’t help but smile and therefore make you smile. His cheerful attitude, cute face, and high energy will be the heartbeat of the band, and his innocent and pure heart will balance out Luka’s dark and mysterious one.
Lenalee Lee (D.Gray Man) - Guitar
On the guitar, I would put Lenalee from D.Gray Man because I think all of the guys would instantly fawn over her. Lenalee has an incredibly versatile look (at least…when she had long black hair…I hated when she chopped off her hair)…in one moment she can look cute and sweet with her hair pulled into pigtails and the personality to match. However, if you need to change it up just let her hair down, give her a set of sexy boots and the right set of clothes and she’ll be one stunning young woman that will have guys throwing themselves at her. Now…add a guitar to that mix…and you’re looking at a star!
Tasuki (Fushigi Yuugi) - Lead guitar
The person I would peg as the lead guitarist is someone with a great head of hair and who is a bit wild…Tasuki from Fushigi Yuugi. In Fushigi Yuugi, Tasuki is a bandit with a fiery attitude and considering that are quite a few girls out there that like the bad boy-type, Tasuki will certainly satisfy their obsessions. In addition to being the bad boy of the group, Tasuki has some incredible red locks. If he is the lead guitarist, he will definitely look good with his red locks bouncing and a smirk on his face while he rocks out to his guitar.
Sohma Hatsuharu (Fruits Basket) - Vocals
The final person to add to the group would be in charge of the band’s vocals, but could also charm and go crazy. That person, I think, is Sohma Hatsuharu from Fruits Basket. Hatsuharu for one has a unique look because he is the ox zodiac, so his white and black hair truly make him stand out. Not only that, but his split personality will make him interesting on stage as he could be gentle and sweet one minute, before turning into a bull the next. Even though that may be the case, as long as he doesn’t attack the crowd, I think Hatsuharu will actually be able to get the fans going during their performances and win them over while on stage.
Anyway, those are my choices…if you were creating a band out of anime characters, who would you pick?
