Funimation currently holds the rights to the Show By Rock!! anime. They describe the show as:
Set in the glamorous metropolis Tokyo Midi City, where music—and the dream of musical superstardom—is everything. Here, “battle of the bands” is more than just a teen rivalry: Dozens of ensembles compete for the honor of playing atop the city’s highest tower.
In addition to streams on FunimationNowsho, Funimation offers the first season of Show By Rock!! in its entirety on YouTube for North American users.
