I'm hating myself for keeping this series in my Plan to Watch section for so long. I absolutely loved it and it was definitely a unique story. The hug at the end just did it for me. Hopefully the next season will be as good as this one.

Wonderful way to end an amazing first season!!! The humor in this series is surprisingly consistent, where most shows taper off this series maintains the humor.

Such a satisfying ending. All the characters have shown great amounts of development, I saw a little bit of myself in each of them. There were so many moments where I recognized a piece (I almost jumped out of my seat when I heard Nodame playing Chopin's Fantasie Impromptu in the 4th episode), it rekindled my love for classical music.

Nodame really became my favorite character, I respect her a lot, even if she is a crazy, random slob. Her way of learning and playing really reminds me of my own. It's great to see that Chiaki finally realized his love for her.

I really wish I could play piano again (but I can't due to carpal tunnel syndrome. It pains me so much). If anything though this series has re-inspired me as a musician. Someday, for sure. ♥

I love it ^^ ending was great, I'm happy that Nodame will study abroad :)

And I'm happy also because of Chiaki. It's fantastic, that he realized, that Noda is very important for him.

And music was just awesome! This anime is a real masterpiece :)

Lovely ending, my heart sortof jumped when he hugged her :D

I cannot believe how many times i've ignored this series just because I didn't feel like another music anime. I enjoyed most of the music, although during the longer bits I did get a bit distracted.. but i'm not really mature enough to appreciate classical well yet so that doesn't reflect on the anime at all. It was totally worth the watch.

Such a romantic episode. Really, my heart stopped for a moment, when he hugged her.

I'm absolutely enchanted. I've not seen such a hilarious anime for a long time. I will thank my colleague, who recommended me this series. Love the classical music. 10! xD

it is been a while for me to watch an anime non stop from the first episode till the last one.
I don't know clasic music at all, but when i was watching this anime, i was being captivated by it. The romance and the comedy part is also good. This anime is very enjoyable to watch and i love every its elements.

So, the live action movie. Is this where it stops? Hmmm.

Wow, this is a rare case that slice of life anime gets a good ending. This was, simply amazing. Instant 10 out of 10 for me.

I finally released how close live action series was adapted from the manga, and also this. I just love all of them.

This anime was much, much better than I expected it to be. It's one of the best I've seen in a while, and this episode was perfect. I got all teary when Chiaki hugged Nodame. ^^

Yay~ Such a happy final ep. =^^= It took me a little to get passed the animation when I first began watching this series but I'm happy I continued. The characters were wonderful and the music was brilliant. I look forward to when I have some time to watch the second season! I so want to see Noda and Chiaki's relationship develop more~

Overall, I gave this series a 8/10.

I guess I'm the only one here who watched the English Dub.

I love every minute of this show and it's one of the best I've ever seen. Excellent way to end the series. All I'm hoping for is a dub of the next two series. Please, I need more!

The scene where Chiaki jumped out of the taxi, followed Nodame, and embraced her from behind has to be one of the best I've seen. Beautifully executed scene.

Wonderful. Everything was downright perfect. I couldn’t ask for anything more with such a flawless ending ♥

I cried when Chiaki embraced Nodame, then her father showed up and I couldn’t stop laughing. Loved the series to bits~♥

Now on to watch the second season~
I think, then procrastinate.
Therefore, I am.

I am not sure why everyone is crying here but I did enjoy the scene… more like a "finally, we all knew this was coming someday!" kind of reaction. Probably because I am a guy and I lost a part of my heart somewhere along the way.

Enjoyed the series as a whole, I'll continue onto season 2. I am unfamiliar with most of the musical terms but still enjoyed the music even if I barely listen to classical. This series has inspired me to listen to it more and I have some more appreciation for the music and everything that's involved in presenting it. Though, it got a bit repetitive to me. The formula being this:

1. Practice
2. Play a Concert
3. Everyone is in shock and loves Chiaki and the orchestra.
4. The End (or repeat and rinse).

If there was one thing I did not get, it was how everyone always was like "zomg, I cannot believe this is not butter!" whenever the music played. I realize that it's probably just a matter of taste and probably some exaggeration was in there for the "Lulz" and sometimes it was just awesome to see Chiaki pwn so I didn't really mind. Regardless, I would've liked it if Chiaki had some more serious failures and a person to "compete" with to the top. It seems like I may just get that in the next season..

Overall, I rated this a 9. Sorry for the review :p

I was totally surprised on how well this anime was done. Definetly one of the betters animes I have watched in a long while. I could not really find a thing I disliked about it.
I can't wait to see more Nodame in the next season.

But if they are goign to Europe I guess I wont be seeing much of Mine-kun and the others which kinda sucks because I really liked all the characters in the story.

Beautiful show and beautiful ending. It wasn't tearjerking, but the scene where Chiaki suddenly hugs Nodame from behind was wonderful.

Overall, this series was just about flawless, awesome balance of comedy, music, and drama. The only area I would really criticize it in is animation, but I suppose if every concert was fully animated the production costs would've gone straight through the roof. Maybe it could have also used some more conflict or tougher trials, but the last 7 episodes really were astounding in that regard.

10/10, looking forward to completing the next two seasons soon :D

completely agree with this, i actually give it an 8/10

not enough "adversity" and character/romantic development throughout the middle of the series. regardless the ending was very satisfying

I loved the part where Chiaki passed Nodame in the taxi & when Chiaki was catching up tp her, she still didn't notice & then HE HUGGED HER!!! :)

It was a GREATTTTTT anime. Each episode was hilarious. & the music...

& the episodes all felt like 5 mins instead of 22 mins! So I'll pretty much watch about 4 episodes a day to make it felt like I've watched 20 mins of Nodame Cantabile. :)) <3

Watching the sequel... though its kind of different, but loving it so far. :D

Even after rewatching this the second time around, I still can't believe that I absolutely adored it! XD I know the ending.. the second and third seasons are still fresh on my mind... read the manga from first to last chapter... read the opera-hen!

But it still freaking made me laugh like crazy... shouted Mukyaaah~! a thousand times... And fell in love with the characters all over again! Best josei ever! Nodame is the most unique and well-rounded female character that I have ever met... And gosh, Chiaki-sama is so *heart*! XD still a 10/10!

I was definitely touched by the ending of Nodame Cantabile. I never expected Chiaki to do that for Nodame's sake! I'm still on the verge of tears as I type this down (I just started watching the anime two days ago. :D)

Going to watch the next season!

A 10/10 for this anime! ♥

I was captivated from the very first episode and a good ending to the series as well. The episodes had consistently high quality. This is going to my favourites, 10/10. However, I think that if I disliked classical music, this series would not be that great. Particularly towards the end of the series we get long passages of orchestral/piano music in each episode with less plot development, the supporting characters' roles becoming much smaller etc. There were quite a few times when Chiaki and other characters were just being jerks, then again I thought that part was actually quite realistic. Nevertheless, it was an immensely enjoyable series with a great use of music to create and enhance drama.

I can't express how much I truly loved this anime, especially the final episode. I've been playing clarinet since I was about 10 (25 now) and I have a huge love of classical music. Add in my love of anime and romance and it's plain to see that this was perfect for me. I can't overstate how much I loved the final episode. The buildup through the entire series, with Chiaki slowly falling for Nodame, despite his resisting the entire time, culminating in him rushing to be with her. The heartfelt talk on the phone while he came up to hug her. And then the hug itself! I swear I was in tears! It was just perfect!

The anime was a definite 9/10 for me up to this point. After this episode I have no choice but to give it a 10/10.

The anime was a 8/10 until I watched this episode.

I had no choice but to bump the score up to a 9/10 after seeing how perfectly the finale was executed.
