Anime Review: Nodame Cantabile — Anime Version
This series ran 23-episodes long and covered Volumes 1 – 9 (a little bit of 10) of the manga. The series, overall, was faithful to the manga, although, a couple of tidbits were trimmed to keep the story moving. I’ve written quite a bit about this series in the past, so I won’t go into more. They decided to end the series when Chiaki goes to Nodame’s home to convince her to come to Europe with him. The last scene is the hug when Chiaki finally finds Nodame while she’s talking on the phone with him about their future. I suppose that was a good place to end things and from the looks of it, they could or could not make a second season. 5/5
Anyhow, I’m looking forward to the second season of the live action version :).
