I guess my review's going to be one big spoiler.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
After the romantic relationship is established, it really goes downhill from there, and the romance was barely entertaining before that point. It throws in the cliche "artist living in the shadow of his famous daddy has issues" near the end, leaving for a poor excuse of a climax/ending.


It really isn't much of a read, unfortunately, and it's a shame to see such nice artwork go to waste.

Venus Capriccio

Having read all the shojo manga I've had, I can say that this one is a nice change of pace from the "just met you, already loove you" mangas.

The pace is slow, giving time for the characters to grow into you. The art is amazingly beautiful, and each chapter has a moment that makes you go "Awwww :3"

Even tough I find Takami's character a little bit unrealistic, it still fits the series. But I think it would be better if they weren't 15-16 years old. They look much more mature and adult than that...

Recommended!

Admittedly, there wasnít a plot. But for some reason, I liked this manga. Itís not a classic by any means and is a quick read so I read it. The girl is a tomboy (a real one, not the supposed ones in many series) and her personality fit my taste, while the guy is feminine but elegant/composed (and more in love with her than she is with him) and I unexpectedly liked him too. Really weird. Anyways, they were enough to keep me entertained and the focus on their music also helped a bit. Iíd recommend this but donít expect too much. Itís a decent, speedy read that you might find cute.

I got into this series simply because it had a music theme (that to centered around the piano)

By the end of the last Chapter, I knew I had read an amazing story, where we see the characters mature, where we see them cry and be there for each other.

Initially, I wasn't happy with the one sided love, but later I found out, it was an important part of the story, and how it added to the overall feel of the Story.

I was very very happy reading this, and the ending was pretty satisfying too... though I wouldn't mind some more biggrin

Recommended to everyone... irrespective of their choice of genre. smile

Loved this manga

Maybe it's just me but I really loved this manga.

The art is actually really nice and I didn't expect it because Nishikata Mai's art in Hana no Kishi wasn't that appealing to me... there's something weird with the way I view things. I don't know. It just seems to me like Venus Capriccio's art is better than her most recent work.

As for the story, I find it quite cute that the progress is slow and that throughout the whole manga, there was only 1 kissing scene. Being a pianist myself, I loved how they used the piano as a form of communication. The character personalities are indeed cliche, but I still found it quite entertaining. The comedy came out naturally and not forced, for me, and that's a good thing.

Hated the ending, honestly, but I usually hate the endings of most manga. This story's ending was a bit annoying for me because I would rather they ended the manga with a scene where Takami is already a successful concert tuner and Akira is the one playing in the concert, not with Takami and Akira only achieving half-way.

Typing this serious is seriously killing my brain and fingers.

AKIRAAAAAA~~~ <3

It does indeed seem a little cliche and all but i really like the feelings that this manga presents. It's a light read full of growth, character development, love and dreams and possibilities.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Not really a fan of the ending though. But i did see it coming, it was kinda obvious from the start that he would study abroad. The last chapter where he comes back to visit her was also predictable but i do wish there was another chapter showing their lives 10 years later when they both become successful.


Nevertheless, i enjoyed this manga! It's simple, light and heartwarming

great girl protagonist

first thing first... it's the art that drew me to reading it. well, i thought i could never find the perfect girl protagonist i am imagining until i found this. the cover did a lot of impact at me... when i started reading... ahaha it was completely like it made a big turn to what i expect but she's somehow and, i'd say, unexpectedly likable in my case.

i so love the art.. and the plot and the characters and everything...

some people agree and some don't... but i do.. i think it gave me the same feel of special a when i read venus capriccio. and fortunately.. it's more realistic than special a. although the exaggeration of special a gave it it's humor just like ouran.

i so hate myself for always forgetting the title. it's somehow..somehow not easy to remember.*sigh* peace!

anyway i'm giving it a 10..!! so i'm sure to remember it...!--especially the ART!! i so love it! i'm falling inlove with takami!!

Cliché plot, not bad but not memorable. Art is modern and clean; pretty nice but nothing spectacular either. I found both protagonists' personalities a bit overdone in shoujo manga... The girl is "boyish", gets bad grades, nosy-but-caring, and dense. Guy is a bishie, good at almost everything he does, troubled childhood (though not too bad), quiet, and doesn't get along well with others. You can basically tell how it's going to end by reading the first chapter or so.

If you can ignore those, then I guess it's an "okay" manga.

After reading the previous comments on this page, I went and read the manga with high expectations. Perhaps they were too high, because I found myself very disappointed. While I don't mind cliche plots, or cliche characters, and the art was fairly good, something about this manga just didn't click for me.

Gave it a 3 for the art.
