Genre: Romantic Comedy
Based on the hit comic book by Tomoko Ninomiya, this is a fun-filled quirky romantic story of two very opposite people.
Megumi Noda, or “Nodame” is a piano student at Momogaoka Collegeof Music. An extremely talented pianist who wants to be a kindergarten teacher, she prefers playing by ear rather than reading the music score. She is messy and disorganized, takes baths several days apart and loves to eat, sometimes stealing her friend’s lunchbox when it is filled with delicacies.
Shinichi Chiaki, is Momogaoka’s top student. Born into amusical family, he is talented in piano and violin and has secretambitions to become a conductor. An arrogant multi-lingual perfectionist who once lived abroad in the music capitals of the worldas a young boy, he feels mired in Japan because of a childhood phobia.
They meet by accident. Nodame quickly falls in love, but it takes much longer for Chiaki to even begin to appreciate Nodame’sunusual qualities. Their relationship causes them both to develop andgrow. Because of Nodame, Chiaki got the opportunity to lead a studentorchestra and begins to have a broader appreciation of people's music alabilities. Because of Chiaki, Nodame faces her fears and enters a pianocompetition. Opportunities open up as both begin taking risks,stretching themselves far more than they ever thought possible. > Note: Love this drama! Especially on the scene when for the first time S-Oke performing!

So I was watching the Grammys on Sunday night and they played Rhapsody in Blue. I instantly thought of Nodame Cantabile. I was kind of just wondering if anyone else watched it and thought the same thing. The whole time I was like expecting a person in a mongoose costume to just pop out on stage. Haha!
^o.o^ Anime/Manga Fanatic

one of my fav. drama.
nodame is so cute and the storyline is pretty funny.
sekiiro - February 23, 2011 11:11 PM (GMT)
I finally watched the 2nd movie! Very emotionally captivating and trying as they showcase Nodame's talent but complement it with her psychological growth. A must watch for all Nodame fans, of course, in sequential order! -_-
starstruck - February 24, 2011 09:43 AM (GMT)
This drama was about as close to heaven as you could get for me. I am so corny but dude, it's true. I love this drama. The music, the passion...sigh.

lyanthros - April 11, 2011 01:47 AM (GMT)

eternaldreams - July 21, 2011 01:15 AM (GMT)
I LOVED this drama.....although nodame was a little bit on the weird side, i thought that her and chiaki's love was really nice
i thought it was funny and i loved when they choreographed the orchestra....like when they spun around the cello and stuff....i wish we could do that in a real orchestra; it looked really fun :)
