Detroit Metal City Is NOT Over

1. Anime News Network says there are 24 episodes

Anime News Network is a reputable, trustworthy source of information. There’s no way they’d get this wrong.

2. The phrase “Detroit Metal City is over” at the end of episode 12 refers to the episode being over, not the series

3. Not every character got a scene in the opening sequence

Each character in the opening sequence appeared in the show. This doesn’t mean every character in the show appears in the opening sequence. What about Jack? What about Krauser-tan? There are plenty of characters we have yet to see.

4. Jagi still hasn’t done anything

5. They left out too many easy jokes

How fast does Krauser eat?


Ten grapes per second

UPDATE: Apparently this joke was so easy that it inspired a new Japanese soft drink.

The existence of Tentacle Grape proves my point: the grape/rape pun is too easy and irresistible to overlook. Regardless, I’m so bitter that it was independently conceived stolen from me that only the song Fuckingham Palace adequately expresses my rage.


6. Negishi always acts like he’s quitting. Then he comes back.

We shouldn’t be surprised when the series comes back too.

7. The Mad Monster counter hit 20

And the bottom of the counter is at 12. Should we take this at face value? Hell no. Episode 12 isn’t the end; it’s simply a new beginning.

8. Our thoughts shall summon DMC from hell

9. It’s impossible to prove a series is over
