Maho finds out that Koyuki's been working his tail off to pay for the damaged guitar - but he doesn't even play one note on the salvaged six-string before it gets demolished again!

1 Dec. 2004Live zen'ya
Beck's drummer leaves the band to lead a more responsible life, but his replacement comes surprisingly quick. It's a good thing Ryusuke knows what it takes to keep a band together - chemistry.
8 Dec. 2004Face
It's Koyuki's first gig with Beck. No pressure, right? Sure enough, things get off to a rough start. Maybe Ryusuke's new song will inject some life into their set.

26 Jan. 2005Surî deizu
An indie label wants to release Beck's album in America. If the record starts climbing the charts, it's got to mean the cash will start rolling in - right? If not, Koyuki might be screwed.

An industry hotshot's in town with Prudence on his mind. His name's Leon Sykes and he's dropping in on the Ryusuke's fishing shack - from a helicopter.

Ryusuke's putting the screws to Beck, but the night before Greatful Sound offers a chance to relax - until Koyuki blows his confidence in front of an audience.
9 Mar. 2005Festival
The festival is starting and the guys in Beck are at each other's throats! Plus, Chiba's missing and a heavy rain is coming down. If they can get it together, these are the conditions from which legends are born.
16 Mar. 2005Sâdo stêji
The mud and tension are thick at Greatful Sound. With one song left - possibly Beck's last song ever - the guys take it up a notch. The audience is waiting, and the lucky ones will be able to say, "I was there."
23 Mar. 2005Slip Out
Beck has broken up, but the legend of their Greatful Sound appearance is growing. Adding mystery to the myth, Ryusuke has vanished. Koyuki sees that even though the band's done, life goes on.
