From Easy Going Scans: A tranquil tale about Shuhei Amamiya, who transfers to Moriwaki Elementary filled with hope and ambition about his new life. But it doesn't take long before he gets picked on by the class bullies, and gets involved in a dare to play the mysterious piano in the forest, leading to his meeting an enigmatic child that goes by the name of Kai Ichinose, who seems to be the only one capable of getting sound out of the thought-to-be broken piano. His ability earns him the respect of Shuhei and his music teacher, former master pianist Sosuke Ajino. At first Kai is resistant to refining his art but after hearing Sosuke play a Chopin piece he just can't seem to play by himself, he relents.
Note: Received the Grand Prize for best manga at the 12th Japan Media Arts Festival in 2008.

Standing ovation for this!!
Gorgeous manga, in a "less is more" sense. Don't expect this to blow you away, more let it win you over with its subtle touches of magic. It's also hard to label this manga, as pretty much any kind of reader (shounen, seinen, shoujo, josei) can enjoy this. A very wholesome read, similar to the works of Masahito Soda, Hitoshi Ashinano, and even Mitsuru Adachi.

a special manga. It really stands out in this jungle of mediocre, run-of-the-mill (and lest not forget :yaoi) manga. Expect a plot and some real life emotions.
I love this
It's one of the few series that completely hooks me.
Excellent seinen series by a very underappreciated mangaka. Makoto Isshiki is most famous for Hanada Shonen-shi, a 5 volume series which was even animated. Highly recommended.
