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?

Wonderful read, but it can get a bit dull since it's a bit realistic - real life doesn't bring you amazing plot lines like One Piece, after all. But I didn't like the male lead having some kind of a European background - way too typical. I somehow still like this, though...not sure quite why. Perhaps it's the way the story was told, the atmosphere and mood that the story created that drew my attention...
And as usual, the girl's as dense as ever, but at least she's not a crazy over-achiever with inhumane abilities like in so many shojo mangas.

The story is sweet, but I wouldn't expect much from it. The story was cliche and the characters were very unoriginal. It's just a typical shoujo read. There have been better and worse manga's.

Childhood-friends-turned-lovers done right!

^ as said in the title, I think what really sets this series apart from the rest of the stories in this genre is that it actually feels realistic. How both of them are close as childhood friends is evident by how comfortable they are in each other's presence and also brutally honest with each other when they have to be. But breaking out of that comfort zone into becoming lovers, the awkward yet sweet journey it is because underlying the new relationship is their former more deep relationship as childhood friends... yup, I think this one's done it right.

Don't get me wrong, there are a bunch of stock characters and cliched setups here and there, but there are certain moments too which really made the characters resonate with me. I think my favourite character out of everyone is Akira. Poor boy is so sweet and innocent, yet wants so badly to break out of the (i wouldn't say "friend" cuz its worse than that) brother-zone, that I find him really different from all the other shoujo male heroes out there.

Plus, the piano thing isn't a gimmick. Lots of chapters deal with the characters' insecurities regarding advancement in their piano skills, and it very effectively develops the characters, especially Akira's, throughout.

So yeah, I'd say that there are certain chapters that lag and make you go "oh whatever, I'll finish this some other time", but suddenly it hits you with these sweet moments that it makes you want to keep reading, cuz their friendship/love is that believable. smile

It's true that there wasn't much plot, but I still couldn't drop this series. Both main characters were immensely likeable. The main girl protagonist was strong-willed and determined, and complemented the almost fragile and elegant personality of the main male protagonist perfectly. Being a piano player myself, I enjoyed the way the theme of the piano was presented throughout the series, and how the characters used piano music to express themselves and communicate with each other. The assortment of characters throughout is also quite nice, although the main protagonists are the most strongly developed characters, so don't expect much character development other than that. It should be noted that the two main characters grow on you throughout the series. I liked how they weren't just transparent characters who didn't change and improve along the way.

Overall, it's a refreshing, uplifting manga. If you enjoy shoujo manga or play the piano (or any musical instrument for that matter), I'd recommend reading this manga. Give it a try! biggrin

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.
