From: Easy Going Scans

Piano prodigy Arima Kosei dominated the competition and all child musicians knew his name. But after his mother, who was also his instructor, passed away, he had a mental breakdown while performing at a recital that resulted in him no longer being able to hear the sound of his piano even though his hearing was perfectly fine. Even two years later, Kosei hasnít touched the piano and views the world in monotone, and without any flair or color. He was content at living out his life with his good friends Tsubaki and Watari until, one day, a girl changed everything. Miyazono Kaori is a pretty, free spirited violinist whose playing style reflects her personality. Kaori helps Kosei return to the music world and show that it should be free and mold breaking unlike the structured and rigid style Kosei was used to.

The quote above from the MC sums up how I feel about the series at current translated ch19.
Feels like the first few volumes have been the prologue to better things to come.
Honestly it took a long time to actually settle on how i feel about this manga, but now I am eagerly waiting to see how Arima progresses as a musician and as a person from now on.
I am sure my rating of the series will go up now as more chapters are translated.

I thought going into this that it would be about a tragedy. And how the character overcomes it.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
However it seems more like it is about an impending tragedy, and the end will be along the lines of: the journey to the tragic end was great. I like happy endings and I have this feeling this is not heading in that direction. I see flowers at a desk and some one promising to move forward unlike the beginning. It is to sad to watch, for me it is a prolonged suffering and I would rather take this in one reading to avoid prolonging it. If there is a nice ending, it would be a nice surprise.

I like the plot development for this manga. We can see the struggles of the MC playing piano and how much his past effects him. The plot is starting to pick with the MC returning to piano competition. The only downside is that you don't get the full affect of this manga because you can't listen to the music. Luckily, this manga is getting an anime in October.

I can't deny this manga is really nice.
Ok I gave it a 6 but it's mostly because of some bad points that are probably only bad for me.
Firstly, since chapter 4, I have the feeling it'll turn to a tragedy. And since I have a hatred to tragedy it's a big let down when I try to immerse myself in the story. Even if it'll not turn in a tragedy I can't find myself thinnking otherwise.
Secondly it's the 4 MC, mostly because I really like the relationship between Kosei and Tsubaki and I can't really like Kaori. Yeah I'm pretty bad with love triangle when the girl I prefer don't seem to be the leading one (it's probably not a love triangle but that's how I want to see it)

So the manga itself is really good but since I hate tragedy and story that seems to not go to my selfish choice of relationship, I'll probably drop it. That's why I gave that note.

The tempo.The artwork.The story.
It's an underrated series.
Hope the translators can put more effort in it and thanks to the translators and scanners biggrin

Surprised there are no comments for this one. It is a nice read, refreshing art. Doesn't quite feel like shounen but so far I like the character development, it is definitely promising. If I recall right, it is monthly releases, so though there is a long pause between chapters, the release itself is meaty. Reading this kept reminding me of Nodame Cantabile, which is no bad thing. And similarly, I kind of know where the story is going but not how I'll be taken there, which makes reading it fun (at least for now).

Rooting for the main characters, and hopefully the author makes the ending a happy one, and nothing too tragic happens in the middle. I am a sucker for a good ending, but that hospital visit worries me
