Words cannot describe this manga - it's like an inspiration to everyone of all ages to find their dreams and go for it.

The characters were beautiful and I personally think this is one of my favorite mangas. The romance is great and the art is to die for. It's a cute inspiring story which sends a message to everyone to not let go of their dreams - even if you're taken for granted. This is probably one of Chiba Kozue's best.

Please give this manga a chance. It's indescribable.

more about freedom than music.

It's about music, but more importantly it's about young people breaking free from the constraints that the "adults" put around us. It's about finding the dream you want to pursue and finding a place where you belong. Music is just a vehicle to drive this point through to the readers.

Romance is nice. The background stories are cool and explain the characters' actions well.
I won't say the romance is ground-breaking, because it's not--but I can say that's it's touching and strong.

"It's lonely to fly by yourself, so we decide to try flying together."

I would have liked it to be more focused on their music career, but alas, ...that's not really the point here.

The art is to die for, though. smile

It is. C:
It's such a sweet story, and I could relate to it, so that made it all the better and more touching. I cried, like , every two chapters xD. In a good way. That sorta "I'm-not-the-only-one" relieved happy sorta way :]. Anyway, I'll always remember this manga. I just keep re-reading and re-reading it xD. First time is the best though, when I was expecting a time filler manga, to find one that I was checking each day to see if a new chapter came out (& now they're all scanlated, so no waiting for you, future reader!)

Anyway, read it xD.
It's about following, and pursuing one's dreams.
Very touching, and very true c:.


AH! I also agree with the person below me. I'd LOVE to hear the songs. biggrin I'd be so happy if someone (or the manga-ka ;] ) made a real version with a melody and all.

Good development of story, but an uncompleted ending. I feel that it would be perfect if the ending is elaborated more. smile Somehow i really wish to hear the song, instead of reading them. It would be such a nice song.

This manga is probably one that I'll forget with time, but I definitely enjoyed it while it lasted.

My favourite thing about it was the art. All the characters were drawn beautifully, and it was easy to tell them apart (partly due to the fact that there just weren't that many characters).
I spent a lot of the time while reading this squeeing. The two leads are just so adorable.

The ending was very cool, even if it was somewhat cheesy, and I don't mean cheesy in a romantic-and-so-sweet-that-you-choke way.

I think the main idea that the mangaka was trying to get across with this manga is that no matter how naive or young you are, you should still be able to make your own decisions, and have your own hopes and dreams.

I definitely recommend this manga if you are looking for something that makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside, or if you just want to see some good art.

Wow first comment!
First of all this manga seemed to be a wake up call for people who have dreams and that's to follow them no matter what. It's an inspiring, cute, romantic manga with character development. Light read but worth your time smile
