From Entropy:

Ryouhei Hayabusa, named after the nearly extinct Peregrine Falcon, no longer sings in public after his chorus teacher removed him from the choir, saying he has a "beast-like" voice. But one day when Saino, a first year, overhears Hayabusa singing, he asks Hayabusa to be the lead singer of his band. Saino then tells Hayabusa that there is a special quality about his voice…After meeting the disillusioned girl Azusa at the beach, Hayabusa immediately falls in love with her. Hayabusa decides to sing again, if not for himself, then at least for she who’s also searching for something.

By the mangaka of Auto Focus and Isshou Asonde Kurashitai.

I really liked this manga. first of all it shows how much he likes to sing and the romance is also very cute. If you really like music and singing i highly recommend this. The reason why i liked this manga very much is because i am a singer and i know wat he feels wen he sings cuz i have felt tht. you feel... free.. like a bird smile

I'm not impressed with this manga, truthfully. I think it takes itself too seriously--the manga-ka doesn't actually bother with the technicalities and reality of being a musician/singer, and that flippancy despite the fact that the main character is "so obsessed" (and that the band is "good") shows. Plus, I'm really dissatisfied with Azusa--while she's an interesting character, I felt just because she likes Hayabusa's singing doesn't mean much. Not to mention that I felt the whole reason why Hayabusa didn't sing a lot in the first place was mentioned too little with not enough emphasis--all of a sudden it jumps to him being "discovered," and when he made such a big deal about how much singing suddenly meant to him, I felt that such an abrupt beginning made even less sense.
The drawing is pretty nice, but that isn't worth much when you're cringing the whole time at the plot. If you're looking for a good "rising musician" story, read Nana and Beck, and don't bother with this rather silly manga. ><;;

Great so far. Great art and exciting cells; Faster paced storyline because it's only one volume, but it's very entertaining. The 'romance' is the only thing that hurts the manga so far as it's pretty rushed for the volume limit, but something that helps later on. I recommend it, and hope they turn it into an anime.
