From Manga Abyss:
Takami and Akira are childhood friends who attend the same piano classes. Compared to the rough and boyish Takami, Akira is more feminine and cute and is also more skilled in piano. Takami thinks of Akira as a younger sister, but one day, Akira suddenly kisses Takami and says he likes her?

How did this get hundreds of votes saying that this was good? I went into this with high expectations, and I was thoroughly disappointed. The only parts I did like we're the few pages where their personalities were switched. I have a feeling that this may have been the first manga of many girls, since there are so much better than this.

The characters are extremely cliché and predictable. You could easily tell what they were going to say or do next. There weren't any interesting or new romantic events. It was mainly catching her from falling down the stairs. I believe that happened three or more times. Yea that's how the romance develops.
Sure, the art's alright. It's nothing special, and I don't remember any great backgrounds. Akira's cute but Takami was really annoying. I guess if you want to read a romance between a blonde pretty boy with a loud tomboy, you can read this, but there are better ones out there.
Also, the climax of the manga was awful and the reasoning was really really bad. It was poorly paced and rather unrealistic.
Every page I turned was me with a furrowed brow trying to understand why this is so well liked. Basically, this was just your average generic shoujo so read this if you want.

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.

As a critic, I suppose this is a good read if you just want a hint of romance which is unique in the perspective that both sides were a;ready perfect and complimenting each other. There is some character and plot development but, since the characters were close to perfect in their roles anyway, not much was done, but that's fine. It's not simple comedy, nor the deep stuff. What saves it is the lack of cheesy romantic roles one can fine in a cliche shoujo, the ones in shounen, and heck even a number of those found in seinen or josei, roles that show quite impractical and unrealistic thought pattern (but those are fun sometime...only sometimes).

A good read if u want to do all 5 vols at one shot

While I found it to be a tad slow and drab sometimes, the art is absolutely stunning, makes up for everything. Nishikata Mai is one talented artist.

Venus Capriccio has beautiful artwork and a beautiful story. The artwork is sooooo pretty to look at. The length and plot is also very nice as well and had a nice closure. However, the beginning should have introduced the themes, rather than acting like a filler. Still, characterization is very strong, especially in Akira. He wasn't like the perfect bishie type(though he looks very hot ^^), and instead has flaws. His reactions to certain things are especially cute and original. Once again, it's a very nice story. I recommend everyone to read it!

Well i agree with what Meepyish was kinda boring i had too high expaction for it since it has high rank and good comments for it. There's not so much of romance in start. It's just some boring piano scenes. The start ruined my view for this manga =/

first of all, before i read the series, i realized the there were a lot of positive comments about venus capriccio... but then, i also noticed the negative comments about it... and guess what, i think their right...

it has a slow progress, and the characters, even though they say that they like each other still doesn't confirm that they are going out until the end of the series... i mean what is with that?

but you know, it's not all negative... even though while i was reading i was also impatient on when it is going to end, you just can't seem to stop reading because you want to know what will happen next..

if you try to finish the series, it is actually good... actually, i don't agree to people that it is like special a... the girl here is a bit of a tomboy and seem strong but 'strong' as a definition for this girl is not about being the best physically but strong as in normally?(i can't think of words to explain it...)

if you will read until the end, it is a good manga... not the best, but it is cute...

Well,I was intrigued by the title "venus capriccio" so i went and read it.This is a great manga,light-hearted but has a depth to it biggrin The characters are amazing! Especially the way they care for each other.I like it when Akira tries his best for Takami to stop seeing him a friggin "little sister".The art was great.This series actually remind me of La corda d' oro and special A together,which is awesome.So all this manga needs is for takami to stop being dense and yay! The manga will become more and more fantastic.

The artwork is amazing, and the plot is simple. It's great for light reading, or simply for a normal manga-read. The fact that it's something about music is also a bonus! Did I mention the artwork was perfect? smile

I was skeptical after the first volume because it was a bit exaggerated and relied too heavily on cliches (you know - potential love rivals, jealous fangirls, crazy school play, amusement park date, etc). After things were set into place it got much better.

I liked the way the music theme was applied to the story and how it was used to connect Takami and Akira and also the way the characters communicated through music. The pacing was just right and so was the development of the characters, especially Akira. I liked that it didn't sugarcoat the issues concerning him. The side characters were likeable as well. Also the art is lovely although I do agree the characters look more mature than they are.

I do agree this series is like Special A but not because the leads have the same personalities but rather their interaction with each other is the same. Takami treats Akira as a friend while Akira is protective of her and wants Takami to notice him. This is very much like Kei and Hikari's relationship. The story also has the same lighthearted feeling and is not focused solely on romance. Like atomdreamer stated its like a toned downed streamlined version (not to say that it's a copy).

It was a fun and enjoyable series to read, and I recommend it.
