Renji and Kenta are musicians, they meet each other thanks to the friendship between their bands. Each musician has different reasons to play, be it love for the music, a strong desire to surpass their fears on stage or even just for someone's approbation.
While these bands are struggling to be known in such a competitive world, Kenta is struggling with a different problem in his love life; can he be a replacement for someone else?

A heartwarming story about feelings that grow deep without being noticed.

I've read this plenty of times, but it’s one of those books that I feel compelled to flip through every time I come across it. I liked that there was more to each character than just their brooding or their obliviousness. In the main story, I loved that the character you thought you would feel pity for turned out to be the strongest one. It wasn't in the “I love you, so I’ll let you go” kind of way or in the “after all I've been through, I can finally stand up to you” kind of way, either; they were strong all along. In the read more

The art is very similar. Like, uncanny! Not a lot of shading but very detailed character designs and sceneries. I even thought 'Age Called Blue' was one of Shoowa's works, at first. Both manga's are about musicians and their twisted romances. Although NON Tea Room is much lighter, the themes are still the same. I find the stereotypes towards English Rock bands the same, as well: messed up lead singers, skinny band members with long hair, band members who party way too hard and get a little crazy. Also, the characters are very similar in their actions, behaviours and morals. I didn't personally like either of these mangas, but found them both very similar in many areas.
Both are music themed where the band members are in relationships with each other. This also has a relationship where a new member comes into the picture and falls for a guy who is already in a broken relationship with another member, and tries to steal/win him over.
