Bocchi the Rock's Kessoku Band Returns on The First Take

Kessoku Band from Bocchi the Rock returned to perform on The First Take after the band was featured on the channel less than two weeks ago. This time, they sang the song titled “Shine as Usual,” which served as the opening theme for the first compilation movie of the series. The first movie premiered last June 7 in Japanese theaters.

But because she had no friends, she ended up practicing guitar for six hours every day all by herself. After becoming a skilled guitar player, she uploaded videos of herself playing the guitar to the internet under the name “Guitar Hero” and fantasized about performing at her school’s cultural festival concert. But not only could she not find any bandmates, before she knew it, she was in high school and still wasn’t able to make a single friend! She was really close to becoming a shut-in, but one day, Nijika Ijichi, the drummer in Kessoku Band, reached out to her. And because of that, her everyday life started to change little by little…
