Carole & Tuesday, the 2019 anime series produced by Studio Bones, tells the story of two young girls who dream of becoming musicians in a world dominated by AI-produced pop music. Set in the futuristic city of Alba City on Mars, the series follows the eponymous heroines, the titular Tuesday Simmons (voiced by Kana Ichinose) - the daughter of a wealthy politician - and Carole Stanley (voiced by Miyuri Shimabukuro) - a refugee who works part-time jobs and sleeps on park benches - as they navigate their way through the music industry with their talent, passion, and the support of their friends.

The series' world brings to light the ways in which technology has changed contemporary music culture. On the show, the music industry is dominated by a collective of AI music producers known as the "Artificial Intelligence Idol (AI Idol) culture." This culture has taken over the music industry on Mars, and humans are no longer needed to create new music. Artisans are struggling to keep up with the AI wave and are often overlooked.

However, Carole and Tuesday aspire to change this, firmly believing in the power of music to create connections, heal wounds, and bridge racial, political, and social divides. Their determination to create genuine and authentic music earns them a significant following from a broad range of individuals who crave music that speaks to their emotions.

As their fan base grows, Carole and Tuesday's journey takes them from impromptu street performances to the prestigious "Mars' Brightest," a talent competition that could make them household names. Throughout the series, they encounter different people, including musicians, managers, critics, and producers who either support or oppose their goals.

Carole & Tuesday is far from just another show about music. It's a series that celebrates two strong and capable women with unique stories. Carole and Tuesday are self-made musicians who struggle to balance music with personal responsibilities. They are young women who face both skepticism and love for the music they create. Their characters are a testament to perseverance and determination to make it in the music industry.

The supporting characters of the series are well developed too. The show highlights individuals from various backgrounds, such as Angela Carpenter (voiced by Alisa), a young model who transitions to music production and fights to overcome the industry's misogynistic expectations. Additionally, a quirky pair of DJs, Gus (voiced by Akio Otsuka), Roddy (voiced by Mamoru Miyano), and an American expatriate, Tao (voiced by Hiroshi Kamiya), support Carole and Tuesday's growth and acts as a sort of found family.

The production design and soundtrack are absolute highlights of the series, with each episode packed with musical numbers ranging from pop to country and even techno. The music is produced by the accomplished composer, Mocky, who creates a soundtrack that is both recognizable and adventurously new. The fact that the show has over 50 songs is remarkable. The performances are equally engaging too, with the anime using motion capture technology to ensure that every instrument is played correctly.

One of the most critical themes surrounding Carole & Tuesday is that music transcends all boundaries. The bond between Martian and earthlings, as well as otherworldly people, transforms into a source of inspiration for Carole and Tuesday. This bond is expressed beautifully through the music in the show. It highlights the power of music as a universal language that can bring people together and break down walls.

In conclusion, Carole & Tuesday is a beautifully crafted anime, with excellent animation, soundtrack, writing, and voice acting. The show delves into important themes surrounding hope, identity, and interconnectedness, whose lessons can be applied to real-life situations. The lovable characters, well-developed plot, and engaging music numbers contribute to create an experience that is simply unforgettable. It's an excellent watch for anyone who loves music, anime, and good storytelling.

Carole & Tuesday is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (24 episodes). The series first aired on April 10, 2019.
