Description
Kamine Shuuta is a person who can see a person's heart (literally) whether it's angry, wounded, broken, guarded, troubled etc... and because of this he's at his wits end, because he can't do anything about it.

Tokisaka Hibiki is a saxophonist in the music club. Shuuta first listens to his saxophone on the terrace and wanted to ask something but Shuuta tells him to come to his performance later in the ongoing school festival. After seeing Hibiki's performance, he see the notes of music as hands which can heal the wounded, tend the broken, break the shielded hearts: in other words "seize the soul" of a person.

After the performance Shuuta asks Hibiki if there isn't a person to whom your sound doesn't reach. Shuuta says although Hibiki's sounds can seize hearts of others and move them, his own heart is guarded and is unmoved and troubled. Hibiki then takes Shuuta to his childhood friend Moko (Takizawa Momoko) who loved singing but somehow became mute. Shuuta sees her as a sea of depression and despair. Thus begins their journey to heal people's hearts with music.

Quite Amazing

At first I was rather doubtful of this manga. It didn't seem to be much, honestly. But I'm glad I started reading this- it's extremely interesting and amusing. Although it's a little cliche, how he's so amazing without any basic knowledge-but it makes the entire manga more interesting, as people are first doubtful of him, and he must try to win them over. Plus point: he doesn't win everyone over at one shot-he has to take his time, but can somehow make them work together! So unlike other mangas, where everyone 'follows the same leader' and they succeed. This manga has so much potential. <3

The art is also really funny...aaaaah the faces XD I can't even it's so funny XD But in their own right all the section leaders are strange. Funny and smart, but strange. Can't wait for the next chapter!

This work is fairly good and interesting thats why i dont understand why it has such low rating. Its not that outstanding like tokyo ghoul or any other mangas that are on top but I dont think it deserves a 7.

The story's quite unique with the MC being a conductor not like other typical "musical" manga. His "odd" ability also added to its uniqueness. Also, it didnt made the work look weird at all with fantasy and music joined together.

There were some super cliche parts but its not that bothersome. All in all i think this deserves an 8.5 maybe? Instead of 7 :3

EDIT : just realized that maybe its because of its small number of released chapters that why it has such low rating. I'll look forward to it.

The development of the main character reminds me of Shioon from the Breaker. He has a special talent (he can see hearts) that allows him to develop his skills rapidly without any basic knowledge (in Shioon's case he had the medicine ball thingy and a really strong will?). I do like the fact that as a conductor, Kamine isn't exactly improving their skills but rather drawing out their full potential and strengths. It has potential. More updates please^^.

I'm getting hooked on this one! It's amazing how the author can build up a super pessimistic protagonist into someone who can stand on a grand stage. It's like Eyeshield 21, but without the sports factor. You guys should follow this one. You will also learn more about music when you read this.

So I read the 1st chapter RAW of this manga, heres the summary:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Kamine Shuuta is a person who can see a person's heart (literally) whether its angry, wounded, broken, guarded, troubled etc... and because of this he's at his wits end, because he can't do anything about it. Tokisaka Hibiki is a saxophonist in the music club. Shuuta first listens to his saxophone on the terrace and wanted to ask something but Shuuta tells him to come to his performance later in the ongoing school festival. After seeing Hibiki's performance he see the notes of music as hands which can heal the wounded, tend the broken, break the shielded hearts in other words "seize the soul" of a person. After the performance Shuuta asks Hibiki "isn't there a person to whom your sound doesn't reach" when asked how he knew it Shuuta says although his sounds can seize hearts of others and move them but his own heart is guarded and is unmoved and troubled. Hibiki then takes Shuuta to his childhood friend Moko (Takizawa Momoko) who loved singing but became mute due to some reason. Shuuta sees her as a Sea of depression and despair Thus begins their journey to heal the heart with music.


Edit: *bump* lol...who made my review and spoiler into the manga description....not that I mind but when I came to this manga after so many days and read it it made me think, where have I read this before? and when I checked my comment it was there as a spoiler and it really surprised me XD.
