This manga is quite a slow one if you're lookin for some romance. Buuuuut, it's really gooood anyways! cuz cuz it's really cute and has a funny kinda sarcastic humor. : D But also, sometimes it makes you wanna just tell the story to HURRY THE *BEEP* UP! oh well. It's awesome anyhow.

I just love this series so much and the anime just makes it much better with all the music. I always find this series really touching. Oddball Nodame with the genius Chiaki is a great pairing as their relationship brings out the best of both of them. I love how this stuck up man becomes so enchanted or drawn in by Nodame's music no matter how much it sucked in the beginning. You could say they need each other. Nodame always brought out the love in music that Chiaki strived to perfect and move foward with. Also Chiaki brought out the desire to become better from within Nodame. Their love through music is so touching and you can feel it. (I especially love the anime because they use such touching music!!!)
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Some people felt disappointed with the ending and truthfully, I was too. But later, it felt just right. Nodame's dream was to play together with Chiaki conducting, but she felt such impact from playing with you know who...=). Then Chiaki realizes how much he loves Nodame's piano and how he wants to bring it out onto his stage and tears fall. This couple will be together forever and will always support each other and never let the other's music fall behind!!!! (Even though Nodame has a little catching up to do -.-)

The comic was great, and I used to give it 8 for rating. But the ending is so disappointing. I'd rather think that it hasn't ended, unfinished is better than badly finished.

At first I wasn't sure about reading this manga, specially because it was focused in music and I belived that'll be boring- I couldn't be more wrong. I just couldn't stopped reading once I started. The plot is original, complex characters and not the typical ones, you can really feel the music (which was amazing for me), the artwork really improved through the series, etc.
Although it seems to be taking to long I didn't want it to end either. (I didn't love the ending but I suppose that the autor let many thing to the imagination of the fans)
It's gonna be hard to find a manga that'll complete the hole left by Nodame Cantabile, but even good things must end
I can't really add anything else that people haven't said before.
Just one thing more, It really is worth reading, just give it a try and you'll love it!!
pd: I didn't give it a 10 because of the ending
pd2: I loved the live-action:

I was going to give it a 10, but ending's are very important and this one was a let down. Other than that, the plot was great, just a little draggy for more impatient readers, but it's really one of it's kind.

It's kinda rush at the end, although it's very like Nodame.

How I wish it would end up with a concert of Nodame and Chiaki
But still, 10+ for the charming Nodame Cantabile. I'll miss her very much :'(

The charm of this manga had me stick with it till the very end, but sadly the ending didn't live up with what the manga had to offer. In truth, my love for Nodame even makes me doubt that the series has ended. Surely the uniqueness of nodame and chiaki's adventures shouldn't end like that? Sadly, I was wrong. But don't let my discontent push you away from Nodame. You will enjoy reading it. In fact, it's one of the few manga you wish wouldn't end. I would recommend reading this manga to anyone who would enjoy hilarity with a unique romantic touch. Still, I cannot let go my dissappointment in Nodame's ending.

I thought it was a great manga, but the ending is almost non-existent so I subtracted 2 points from the total. If it would have had a better ending I would have given it an 9. now only a seven. It really did deserve a much better ending.

it's different, and interesting. I like that it doesn't really feel like 23 volumes and yet there are lots of things to remember it by. BTW Anime is as good as the manga, so you shouldn't miss out on "Nodame Cantabile" in any form of media smile))

Nodame and Chiaki are really unique characters. It is not like i can "feel" the music through the manga (the artwork is not that good though) but this weak point disappeared with the touch of the anime. Amazing >.<!!!!
Manga & anime, I love both. I never dare to watch the live-action. Having a live-action means that the series is popular and much loved, but if it turn out to be a failure, people who watch without knowing the original version will have the wrong view point of the series.
I'm a fan of this series, I love the anime version best and I always hope that the live-action and movie never exist. It's really painful when someone (who knows I like Nodame Cantabile) tell me that they've tried the live action or the movie and it's not good. >"<
