Sequels are always a bit of a problem when it comes to matters of continuity, depth of story, character development, and sometimes even the look and feel of a show. All too often will the viewing public find the first season of a given franchise to be very good, only to be served a huge helping of mediocrity when the sequel comes around.

There is hope though, as while there are plenty of shows that let the viewer down in this way, there are a growing number that actually manage to equal, if not better, the original series, and one such example is Nodame Cantabile: Paris read more

An Introduction

I remember being very hesitant to dip my toes into the josei genre due to a silly chemical called testosterone. This all changed when I watched H&C. Finally, I could watch romantic comedies where moe, fanservice, unrealistic sexual situations, and cliches were absent. By the end of H&C I was thoroughly convinced that I would never find another josei of a similar caliber. This is where Nodame Cantabile comes in. Nodame Cantabile has far exceeded my expectations and has captivated me from episode 1.

I will to the best of my abilities review the Paris Chapter in a way that will hopefully prove helpful read more

Story and Character

Paris Chapter is a direct sequel to Nodame Cantabile and picks up where the previous anime left off - with Nodame and Chiaki journeying to Paris to continue their musical education. Besides our two main protagonists a whole slew of new secondary characters are introduced.

You'd have to have a heart of stone not to enjoy the development of the relationship between Nodame and Chiaki. Parts were truly hilarious (episode 5-6), some bits were sad and others were "aah" moments that let you reflect on just how much both of them have grown as people. Their music has also evolved throughout this arc.

I usually don't expect much out of sequels, but slice-of-life stories seem like they should have an advantage in that department, don't they?

STORY - This Paris Chapter picks up pretty much right where the first season leaves off. Chiaki is still working to advance towards his goal of being a renowned conductor, and even Nodame seems to have something more concrete in mind for an end result. The general idea of the story is more or less the same, but unfortunately, I think a lot of the charm is lost in the overseas transition -- mostly because their dreams don't seem quite so distant anymore. read more

Anime: Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge
Both slice of life, romantic, comedy, and seinen anime. The boy main characters have the same personallity and they are like perfect at everything pretty much. Also it is a 2nd season of an anime.

Anime: Ouran Koukou Host Club
Both are mixture of romance and comedy. The difference is that Suoh Tamaki's (one of the male main character) personality is quite similar to Nodame's, and that Fujioka Haruhi is almost like the female side of Chiaki.

Anime: Hachimitsu to Clover II
Both are follow ups to fantastic slice-of-life romance dramas. Highly recommended.
