While the series’ first season might be ending soon, fans still have something to look forward to as Bocchi the Rock! announced that the Kessoku Band will release a full album following the final episode’s broadcast.

It may not have been the most anticipated anime of the season (that honor goes to either Chainsaw Man or Bleach), but it’s fair to say that Bocchi the Rock! is one of Fall 2022's highlights because of its creative animation and loveable characters.

It also helps that the anime has lots of great songs that are made in collaboration with well-known Japanese artists and bands.

Bocchi the Rock! is a heartwarming and hilarious anime series with a heavy focus on music.

The series’ main character, Hitori “Bocchi” Gotou, is an extremely socially awkward high school girl who dreams of becoming a guitarist for a popular band.

As you may expect from a music-focused anime, the series has lots of catchy songs, some of which are composed by members of popular Japanese bands.

While not to the same extent as Chainsaw Man’s unique endings per episode, Bocchi the Rock! also has several ending themes, each of which is performed by a different singer and composed by a popular musician.

For instance, one of the ending songs is composed by Maguro Taniguchi of KANA-BOON, a popular Japanese rock band.

The two other ending songs are composed by Yuuho Kitazawa of The Peggies and Ikkyu Nakajima of Tricot.
