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.

Piano + Love Story = Hit!!

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

A shojo drama (not high on the romance)

I liked it, for the most part. Would not recommend it though (unless you like only one plot-line that actually worked throughout a story which is surrounded by filling/mini stories that move the plot forwards only slightly).

I don't think this was originally meant to be more than the first volume (which is jumpy). Because things happen in it that are oddly forgotten (like the first kiss and confession). So after we "continue" the manga there are moments that shouldn't be there. Plus more plot/character depth is added to the story. We go through all the relationship steps with them (again), but his time slowly (a more realistic pacing)... with the added background stories (which are not all bad). The full plot has a lot of good points, which make for an ok read.

I like the main characters and most of the side ones. The main characters change depending on what the plot needs, which most of the time is still something their characters would do, but not always. So when you read those off times they stick out like a sore thumb. And their growth is off, if you ask me. They change (I'll give you that), but growth? Not too sure that's what I'd call it. It feels like the "growth" they do is purely for plot reasons and not for personal ones. Only reason I stuck through it was because I wanted to know more about Akira. He (his back-story) is complex and the main plot centers around him (even if it's told through Takami).

I don't mind the clichés, although there are many. The drama is a drag. So much mini dramas (almost every chapter has some sort of an issue that needs to be worked through, that is resolved within that chapter). Plot has holes, but as a whole it's an ok read. There are a lot of chapters (or rather characters) that are not truly needed to move the plot forward. They feel like fillers. The story has at times that "after school special" feel to it, which is not to my liking.

I think this story would benefit from taking out the romance and making it a story about 2 friends instead. That would have helped a great deal on how people view this manga.

Akira's story is truly interesting (and it's the reason people have chosen 8-9-10 as a rating for this manga). Because the romance is not there for those rating, the whole plot (and plot flow) is not there for those ratings, the character development is not there for those ratings. Akira's plot-line is the reason you read you this manga, and the reason I liked it.

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.
