Anamanaguchi is a New York based {{chiptune}} [[PunkRock punk]] band comprising Peter Berkman, James [=DeVito=], Ary Warnaar and Luke Silas. Self described as playing "loud, fast music with a hacked {{NES}} from 1985", Anamanaguchi has seen mostly underground popularity, but has been getting more attention as of late, thanks in part to Website/{{YouTube}} and their recent involvement with the ''VideoGame/ScottPilgrim'' video game.

!Tropes used by Anamanaguchi include:

* BilingualBonus: The Japanese text in the "Meow" video, about half the time. The other half it's just English letters swapped out for katakana.
* {{Chiptune}}: Mixed with [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly punk/indie rock]]
* TheCameo[=/=]TheStinger: "Meow" has a post credits scene where [[spoiler:internet celebrity and Website/FourChan creator moot]] has a brief cameo.
* EpilepticFlashingLights: Their live shows are awesome, if you don't suffer from epilepsy.
* EverythingIsAnInstrument: They use a gameboy and NES to make music. It's {{Justified}} though since they are in the {{Chiptune}} genre and that's pretty much what {{Chiptune}} is all about.
* TheFaceless: In the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=scmQ6iN8hKM Pop It music video,]] everybody's face is covered either with a balloon or paper mask.
* IAmTheBand: Peter Berkman does most of the songwriting.
* {{Instrumentals}}: Very few of their songs have singing in them, and the ones that do are done by guest vocalists.
* NeoClassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: PunkRock mixed with [[AlternativeRock Indie Rock]] mixed with PowerPop mixed with {{Chiptune}}.
* NostalgiaFilter: Especially for gamers, and children of TheEighties and TheNineties.
* {{Melody}}: They're ''very good'' at this trope, and they manage to do it with a gameboy and NES too.
* PowerPop: Their music has strong influences drawn from this.
* TheReveal: For the first few days after the release of the "Pop It" music video, the guest singer was labelled as "ft. ______彡☆", and considering that her face is covered up in the entire video, added some mystery to who she was. [[https://twitter.com/anamanaguchi/status/536942941806526465 Later on Twitter, it was revealed to be Meesh,]] who also did vocals for Japan Air.
* ShoutOut: There's a [[Anime/AnoHanaTheFlowerWeSawThatDay brief still of Menma]] snuck in as a FreezeFrameBonus in the Endless Fantasy music video.
* SugarBowl: Frequent with associated designs and videos.
** CrapsaccharineWorld: Except for "Meow", which is somewhat nightmarish.
* StylisticSuck: Becoming a major part of their aesthetic, one glance at the their [[http://armanipradagucci.com/ main blog]] or their [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_malzggvrH91qzq2udo1_1280.jpg 2012 tour poster]] should be enough.
