There is an astounding level of imagination on display in this tale of unrequited love of more ways than one.

The concept is kooky and mysterious as hell, and it’s all complimented by an aspect lacking in the majority of manga: world-building. Sure characters should be the main priority in a story, but the world they inhabit should also be developed and at the very least drawn with some level of detail, to further pull the reader into a story. Most authors either are not bothered, not capable or don’t have the time to fill out their backgrounds, either in art or story read more

Story: 9/10

The story of Marie no Kanaderu Ongaku takes place in a seemingly Utopian world covered with various aesthetically appealing technological creations, most notably large wind-up mechanical animals. The manga begins by introducing the world and it's various traditions and facets through the eyes of our two main characters, Kai and Pipi.

First of all, I usually don't write reviews for this website. I review anime and manga when I have time on my personal blog, but I tend to stray away from MAL reviews, simply because I've seen so many outstanding reviews on here that I feel like whatever I write will be utter crap.

The Music of Marie is one of the most underrated manga I've ever had the pleasure of reading, underrated in the sense that almost no read more

I disagree with most of the fans of this.
Is it good?
Is it underrated?

Do I like it?
The art style felt way too shoujo which distracted me from what could have been very good looking artwork
The story took too long to go anywhere, half of the entire thing and even then it wasnt satisfying considering I had to slough through half slice of nothing happening.
characters were bland and got better but again a bit too late.
