...At least not as far as the scanlations go. Like a bunch of you, I was disappointed by the abrupt "ending" at the end of volume 24, though I still loved the series. But the author wrote two more volumes after that, and the last volume has not yet been scanlated. So please give Nodame Cantabile another chance. The continuation story has so far been delightful. We get to see all the characters come together in Japan. Chiaki and Mine team up to stage Mozart's opera, The Magic Flute. Chiaki might propose to Nodame. And Nodame has grown a lot as a pianist. I'm satisfied.
