I thought "Nodame Cantabile" was published in 'Kiss' magazine. Isn't this magazine aimed at teenagers?

Words cannot describe how incredible 4 and 5 were.... those two episodes alone make the first 3 look like putrid garbage in comparison... damn. Looks like Nodame's room left you with a psychological scar. :lol Moving on from the drooling-fanaticism, there is one "problem" I have with the series... ...

The only thing I do not like is the actor who plays Miki's father. I have seen him in "Hotaru no Haka" today, and I jut dislike him. He looks like frog and his acting is terrible... You don't have to like him but I doubted if you are qualified to pass judgment on his acting abilities. Namase is act...

"cantabile" is a style that music is played in whereas "kantabire" is...I don't know :blink is it just a transliteration? Oh yea, it IS a transliteration. Why won't they use "cantabile" which is an actual word. :goggle: Obviously someone at ANZ didn't do their homework - just google the name in its...

I am curious, did anyone notice that a girl from street gang is Yanagizawa Mayuna? Is there some plotline or just coincedence?
If I remember correctly she was explicitly shown in the footage. I think this was part of the plot, leading to some sub-plot in future episodes.

With regards to this increasing heated discussion between 'groink' and 'unkei', I'd like to get a word in at the risk of drawing fire from the both of you. It seems to me both of you are making statements based on your own experiences and assumptions. Since neither of you have any solid figures to s...

Now Oguri Shin, in my opinion, got it down very well. Remember - he is not playing the humble Shinichi who has been forced to realize how much he likes Ran, but the rather prideful, boasting, 17 year old teenage boy with a handful of solved cases under his belt. He has been ignoring Ran for weeks b...

Kurokawa Tomoka was blamed for the mediocre ratings of this live action special when it was aired. After watching the subbed version I feel the need to say a few words in her defense. It was never easy to convert a popular anime/manga into a successful live action, "Nodame Cantabile" is really the e...

Although I do love the soundtrack of this series, and the original concept introduced in episode 1, I'm disappointed that Nodame isn't receiving more screen time. The drama is named after her, but the way the episodes are going, she's more like a supporting actress than the main character. Much of ...

That's very interesting. But I wonder how they're gonna compress 10+ volumes of Nodame manga into 11 episodes of Nodame live-action episodes. o.o I hope they don't leave out the exciting parts. Maybe I'll read the manga after watching. ^ Oh this only covers 10 volumes? are they going to make the se...

That last scene didn't strike me as particularly romantic. It felt more like Chiaki was letting a puppy lick his face. A man can grow pretty fond of a smart little puppy if it can do a lot of tricks, but this doesn't mean he's falling in love. Bear in mind this is a shoujou manga. It's original int...

Hideaki_Ito wrote:It's "Baka, kore wa orei dakara na" which means "Silly, that's just for gratitude" or "due to gratitude" or "because of gratitude". Something like that.
You're right - it was "...orei dakara na., not "...ore sama...". My mistake.

I believe he said something along the lines of "orei dakara," i.e., "I owed you one anyways" (because he got inspiration when he saw Nodame feverishly playing the piano and realized that all the members in the S orchestra had their own individual styles and in this sense were just like Nodame).

I've only started watching this show. It seems nice so far, but there is one thing that I find confusing. Isn't Hiroki Narimiya's character the father of the little boy? Why does the boy call him "Takkun"? Yuji was following his mum's example. It's probably also a subtle hint that Yuji is taking ov...
