I felt that way in the beginning, too, but since I've become a big Nodame fan, I had to take a look at the anime.... You should should check it out, particularly the anime... The voice acting is really good.
Me too, i don't watch anime that much, but i watched Nodame anime as Nodam cantabile fanatic ...and the voice acting was awesome ..especially Chiaki..
and we have to be patient with SARS, we are lucky they're subbing it in fact..
didn't know that this version of the movie would be different from the actual movie
actually I have seen few scenes of the anime in Animax back then, and it was actually in a quite interesting scene, but I just changed the channel because the first impression wasn't good, haha~
but if you guys say so, I'll give it a try later on.
hmm, yeah. being patient is very hard sometimes, eh?

is it really that bad? ^^" well, I think it's pretty good although there's no romantic scenes between Chiaki and Nodame at all, haha~
just kidding. have you seen the real version?
If you're heavy into classical music, the anime is really the one to watch (the live action drama and SP cut out a lot of interesting music). Plus I've never seen such detail animation of classical instrument playing before. I can only comment on the string section, and most of the time they're dead on (most impressive is the chopin performance). By dead on I mean their playing actually matches the music and are not just random bow movements (long and close shots). Of course w/o the partitur I can't be sure, but it can certainly be played that way. It's as if they digitally shot a live performance and just replaced the real members with the animated figures.
And as a previous user has indicated, there's no way they can duplicate the anime's chopin performance on the live action feature (given the smallness of the concert hall). The anime captures a live performance in a decent sized concert hall very well (both on stage and off) in terms of ambiance, atmosphere, and the final applause.
BTW the anime showed roughly the last 1.5 min of Chopin's third movement. Just for kicks I campared it to the Argerich/Dutoit/OSM recording and the anime is only slower by 4 - 5 secs.
hmm, that makes me have to watch the anime even more, haha~
it's true that sometimes there are unmatched movement of the players and the conductor with the music, but it looks like I'm way too distracted with the awesome music. ^^"[/quote]
