The plot of Carole & Tuesday


Directed by cowboy bebopby Shinichiro Watanabe, the series is set in a future where humanity has begun to migrate to an terraformed Mars, where people can find new comfort thanks to technological advances on the planet such as AI. Specifically, the program follows 17-year-old Carole, an orphan who tries to make ends meet by working part-time jobs, and Tuesday, 17, a rich, lonely girl who runs away from home.

Carole is extroverted and confident, while on Tuesday she is complicated and shy. Although the two seem very different, coming from completely different backgrounds, both have found solace in the music, and an accidental encounter quickly reveals that they share an intense passion for it. That’s why they decided to combine their skills and become a duo to create music that allows them to express themselves. However, Carole and Tuesday are at a disadvantage to return to traditional ways of music (writing their own songs and playing live instruments), as the Mars music industry relies on AI to create hit songs for to children.

Also, the world of Mars is not all sun and rainbow. The Earth is implicitly uninhabitable, forcing many to migrate to another planet where life is very different. Trauma on Earth has created many refugees, while problems on Mars (i.e., racism, limited job opportunities, etc.) cause socio-political unrest. Carole, in particular, is directly affected by these problems, as she and Tuesday try to find and bring hope to an unforgiving world.
