Nodame Cantabile


So I was checking out my regular download website today when I noticed they updated their anime section with a new series, Episode 1 of Nodame Cantabile. Some of you anime guys may know of it. It is the story of a brilliant music student who is afraid of flying and another quirky music student who apparently lives in garbage all day because she is incredibly messy (hmm sounds like someone I know *cough*). The manga came first, and then they made the live action series and this is the anime version. I downloaded it to see what it is like and it is quite cute. They play lovely classical music as background and it has some very cute and funny scenes. Although I don't really get Japaneses' European envy. The main guy wants to give up music because he can't fly to Europe to continue his education. It can't be that bad? So far I like the first episode. I am thinking the anime would be cuter to watch than the live action series because how can they play the garbage girl in real life and still make her cute and desirable? In anime you can do such things. Anyway, nobody spoil me the storyline but I hope it is a good ending :)

This is just my prediction, but musician finally overcomes fear of flying, the plane crashes, killing him. The End.

I saw some of the live action version awhile ago and it was really hokey. The anime version is looking good though!

Velius, you stole that conclusion from an Alanis Morissette song.

Live action isn't always hokey; looking forward to some more weed powah!

Oh yeah, Hana Yori Dango S2 ftw. HYD doesn't take itself too seriously, which is why I think the live action works. The overwrought acting is part of the charm!
