Good manga

A very well written and touching manga. I am only giving it a 9 because there are certain moments and progression that feel slightly unrealistic, rushed or artificial (mostly in the beginning). But this is a very small portion of the overall story and does not detract from its overall strength. The artwork is beautiful, the characters are relatively unique and yet strong in each of their own ways, and the author is able to convey the emotion in the key moments of the story. Highly recommended.

This is a manga that, regardless of your interest in music, you'll find exceptional in any genre. The story is not unique - a ragtag bunch with dissimilar backgrounds and different motivations come together to overcome obstacles. But the presentation and plot development is phenomenal IMO. It doesn't hurt that the art is terrific.

The character development is fantastic among the main characters and even the side characters, who initially literally serve as just warm bodies, are eventually developed so you have some investment in them as well.

There is romance, but it is a slow burn which means it's earned and not just pushed at the reader like so many 'single instant-blush = love' moments in other manga.

Well worth your time.

Back when I was a high school student. I was a member of a music club. And how we the teacher treated us bad made us to be strong. Very nostalgic feeling. I really moved with every scene. And saw myself in them.

well, actually music manga isn't my cup of a tea but this manga is different, everything in this manga, all of the element I really looove it. the development between the member of the club captured really well IMO and it moved me, and makes me curious about koto instrumental.

So far so good, this manga has 3 main protagonist with each unique and interesting personality.

Usually mangas about Music is better off in the anime format but not in this case, the mangaka has captured the blissful essence in a very effective manner that makes you care for what they do...they share a great chemistry between them and i also see a sweet budding romance between the 2 main characters in the future (Plz make it happne ^_^ )

only 4 chapters in and it's already become one of the must read mangas IMO
