Nerima Daikon Brothers is about three struggling would-be musicians, Ichiro, Hideki and Mako, who dream of becoming a famous R&B act and building a huge domed stadium where they play sold-out shows night in and night out that also carries their namesake. In the meantime, they run a daikon (radish) farm in Nerima Ward (famous for its daikon harvests) while trying to fend off creditors, their neighbors, trespassers, and Mako's unmitigated greed.

The show uses a musical comedy format, with the characters often breaking out in song to show their emotions or go through a montage scene- there will often be 4 or 5 songs in the body of an episode. The melodies are sometimes recycled episode after episode with different lyrics substituted for the particular situation. The musical comedy format is rare in Japanese animation and the show's style is influenced by American musicals such as The Blues Brothers and Bollywood musicals such as Muthu. There's some Bonnie and Clyde inspiration in there as well.

Tropes used in Nerima Daikon Brothers include:

 Yukika: I didn't know this club employed blind men.

Hosts: Ever feel outside of an inside joke?
