ClassicaLoid is a Japanese anime television series that aired on NHK from October 2016 to March 2017. The show is produced by Sunrise and NHK Enterprises, and it is directed by Yoichi Fujita. In this series, famous classical composers such as Beethoven, Mozart, and Bach are reimagined as anime characters with special abilities.

The story is set in a fictional town called MUSICA, where two young high school students, Kanae and Sosuke, live with their landlord, Otowa. One day, two strange characters, Beethoven and Mozart, suddenly appear at their doorsteps and make themselves at home. They are "ClassicaLoids," famous composers from the past who possess special powers that allow them to manipulate reality. However, they also have a tendency to break into spontaneous musical performances that transform reality into a fantastical world.

The plot revolves around various comedic and musical situations that occur in the town of MUSICA due to the presence of the ClassicaLoids. Each episode features a different classical composer character, such as Liszt, Chopin, and Tchaikovsky, who show up to cause havoc and create new musical compositions. In addition, other characters, such as a robot called Baku, a scientist named Sousuke, and a pop star named Schubert, play important roles in the story.

One of the unique aspects of the show is its use of classical music in modern-day situations. The ClassicaLoids transform everyday objects into musical instruments and use their powers to create new compositions that mix classical music with other genres. For example, Beethoven creates a piece of music by mixing classical music with heavy metal, while Mozart creates music by combining classical music with rap.

The animation style of the show is bright and colorful, with a mix of traditional and 3D animation. The character designs are inspired by the classical composers they represent, with Beethoven sporting wild hair and Liszt wearing a top hat and tails. The backgrounds and settings are also vividly rendered, with vibrant colors and attention to detail.

The show's soundtrack is a mix of classical music and original compositions created for the series. In addition, each episode features a different opening and ending theme song performed by various J-Pop artists. The music is seamlessly integrated into the story, with the ClassicaLoids using their musical powers to enhance the scenes.

Overall, ClassicaLoid is an entertaining and imaginative anime series that celebrates the power of music and the enduring legacy of classical composers. The characters are quirky and lovable, the humor is light-hearted and fun, and the music is a joy to listen to. Fans of classical music and anime alike will find much to enjoy in this unique and charming series.
