If you haven’t been watching Shinichirō Watanabe’s Carole & Tuesday then you’re totally missing out. The series has been a huge hit in Japan and fans in the U.S. have been eager to check it out for themselves.
Lucky for you, it’s now officially streaming on Netflix. The first twelve-episode arc is currently available to watch in Japanese with English subtitles or in full English dub. If you enjoy anime and shows such as American Idol, then you’re going to want to check out Carole & Tuesday. In fact, here’s a peek at one of the songs from the series.
These songs can also be a bit unexpected as with OG Bulldog’s creative Bulldog Anthem.
Or just plain off the rails and weird with the Mermaid Sisters singing their song Galactic Mermaid, which we warn you in advance that it’s pretty NSFW due to some interesting language choices.
The anime series features Miyuri Shimabukuro as Carole Stanley with English vocals by Jeannie Tirado and Kana Ichinose as Tuesday Simmons with English vocals by Brianna Knickerbocker. Nai Br.XX is featured as the singing vocals for Carole and Celeina Ann provides the singing vocals for Tuesday.

Armed with just a suitcase and her Gibson acoustic guitar she teams up with Carole Stanley who is another aspiring musician who plays the piano. The pair becomes the singer and songwriter duo Carole & Tuesday to make it big in the music industry.
