Nodame Cantabile

Dear Chibi,

In my previous post I mentioned I might give Nodame Cantabile ago again because of Ueno Juri’s awesome portrayal of Ruka from Last Friends. Since then, I’ve finished it and surprisingly, I really enjoyed it this time! Previously, I gave up after episode 3, but it seems the story starts getting better at episode 4. My my.

What really drew me in the story was the relationship between the clumsy and messy Nodame, and the arrogant multi-lingual perfectionist Chiaki. It was very very cute! XD There were very few romantic scenes of them together but that makes it all worthwhile in the end when they do kinda of get-together.

Nodame and Chiaki

Aside from them though, I wasn’t as interested in the other characters- so it was a good thing they got the most screen time! Eita and Mizukawa Asami from Last Friends also played some part in this drama, except I liked their characters more from Last Friends. It’s quite interesting watching this comedy after the serious nature of Last Friends, but it gives it a nice balance. Their characters are totally opposites- especially for Ueno Juri. Even now I find it hard to believe Ruka and Nodame are played by the same person… @_@ You would understand if you watched them both. XD


I can’t wait to see the special, and the 2 movies :) Ahh…Chiaki senpaiiii!!<3!

      Hi, thanks :D I did end up watching the special and it was so cute ^.^ I like it when the two of them have their difficulties but always somehow pull through with the help of each other. It was nice to see Chiaki being more serious about Nodame and being honest with himself. Gotta love the kissing scene XD yay.
