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.

The plot wasn't good. The art was only above average. The characters were slightly "Mary-Sue" (and somewhat predictable). My list of flaws could continue for a while.
I liked this manga though; it's a pretty good quick read, so if you're in the mood for quick, sweet, and simple, it doesn't get better than this.

Just try not to be an critical reader like I am--it doesn't end well for any manga you read.

I really liked this serie. First, because the artwork is amazing, fresh and beautiful - not cute as many shoujos, it gave me a cool and class feeling. It's true the story is slow but it goes with the mood - cool and calm. So, I recommend it to everyone.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
i can't say how nice it was to read about a couple who would truly do anything for the other, who loved each other to that extent. they knew each other, respected each other, and cared for each other. when something arose, they didn't foolishly believe they could work through it themselves (a shojo common place x__x), they relied on the other.

the art, the story, and all were wonderful. it captured my attention and held it, which is a miracle in itself! and 5 volumes is the perfect length. the musical elements were a wonderful touch, since i'm a musician myself! (not quite.. a prodigy though XD)

the romantic developement was wonderfulllll. i loved it so much. and the couple.. like i said before, it was just.. ahhhhh~! when akira was like "i am not your little brother.. and if you can't tell the difference.. then i'll show you." waaaaaaah~~ takami, why'd you have to run away! curse you! XDD

a cute, beautiful, funny, cute read. plus the art (and the boys~) are gorgeous!! i was really sad to end it, to my surprise. for me, it was one of those stories i want to keep the characters in my pocket and carry them around with me. hahaha >3. my only complaint would have been to see how they have changed more in two years at the end, but eh.

It's a nice manga, especially in the beginning, the plot is good enough. But sadly there aren't really many (if any at all) truly heart wrenching scenes. And it's not like lily_kitty says that it has alot of mistakes, it's more her own mistake cause akira in the beginning is actually 14 yo and not 15.

Absolutely stunning series. I love both lead characters, and the art is gorgeous. It's lovely to watch the two characters support each other through their weak times.
