Nodame Cantabile 1

Summary: The son of a famous pianist, music student Shinichi Chiaki dreams of studying abroad and becoming a conductor like his mentor. Unfortunately, his fear of flying grounds his lofty plans! As he watches other classmates achieve what he has always wanted, Shinichi wonders if he should quit music altogether. Then one day he meets fellow student Megumi Noda, also known as Nodame. This oddball girl cannot cook, clean, or even read a music score, but she can play the piano in incomparable Cantabile style. And she teaches Chiaki something that he has forgotten: to enjoy his music, no matter where he is.

Review: A friend that's a classical artist recommended this manga to me - and I liked it a lot more than I thought I would. I usually stay far, far away from traditional shoujo fare, but perhaps Nodame's totally insane character (think of a female Morita) is just too attractive to pass up. I really like what I've read so far, so I guess I'll keep reading for now (and there's 13 volumes total - so it makes the pain of waiting for the next volume of Mushishi a little easier to bear).
