We've often heard the adage that the book is always better than the film/TV series, but how true is that statement? There are many cases where the written work is superior to the adaptation, and the reasons for the sometimes massive differences range from the limits of one's imagination and ability to visualise, to important chunks of plot being left on the cutting room floor.

Sometimes though, the difference between the two is very small....

So, Nodame Cantabile is finally over, and with it we say our collective goodbyes, gyabos and mukyas to the odd couple of the classical world. The aptly named "Finale" follows directly on read more

Both features Music and Romance with at least one bishounen in the series.

Aimed towards females, even if the characters and settings are not similar, if you like Music and Romance, you'll like this series.

Both also have cute little blonde fairies..accept in this Anime, the fairy is one of the main - this Anime has a bit of fiction in it.

It also features Violin Music, as with Chiaki.
Male and Female Lead.
A bit more serious than Nodame Cantabile,but has its funny moments
Music is pretty much a main part of the series.
