Synopsis

When Miu was young, she was fascinated by the piano and took up lessons.

When the show opens, Miu is in middle school. She is shy, a soft-spoken girl who doesn't have a lot of confidence in herself. Her friends would describe her as "sweet" and "quiet." At this point, Miu has been taking piano lessons for some time and while people have told her that she's gotten very good over the years, Miu herself feels she's not really good at anything—including the piano. Her teacher, Mr. Shirakawa, is often frustrated with her playing. Although she plays every note exactly correct, her heart just isn't in it...

Meanwhile, Miu's come of the age when she's noticing boys and this shy young lady has noticed the handsome Kazuya Takahashi—even if he hasn't noticed her.

This is Miu's story. The story of a young girl who is on a journey to discover the melody within her own heart and the courage to express it.

I’m usually into slice-of-life anime, but Piano was just too real. Usually, slice-of-life anime isn’t really close to life, because if that happened, it wouldn’t be that interesting. Everything that happened in Piano had a high probability of happening in real life, so I wasn’t really interested. I’m not saying it’s bad, but I don’t think it’ll ever be one of my favorites.

One thing I noticed about Piano is that the story focused more on the lives of Miu’s family and friends. It was only in the last 4 episodes that the focus shifted to Miu. I guess it was better that way, because Miu read more

Well this show is quite boring most of the time, and it is listed as "romance", but it only hints at the romantic interests of some characters. If you begin this show thinking it will be a love story, full of drama, and boyfriend/girlfriend relationships, stop! It has very little drama(and it potrayed poorly), and even less romance. Now if your into the whole "slice of life" and reality anime series, then give this show a shot. It takes a different approach then most of those series (Air, To Heart, etc), instead of following a male lead, it follows a female. Most, if not all read more

As with all series that I watch, I try to at least watch the first two episodes, unless I really~ (and I mean REALLY~~) hated the first episode or is having trouble finding the next ones, and with this series, I completed it surprisingly. Why surprisingly?

My first impression of this series that it seemed like a series that was about classical music, the piano to be more precise, which to my knowledge the only other anime series that dealt with classical music were La Corda D\'Oro and Nodame Cantabile.

As I started to watch this series, from what I noticed, the piano, much of the time read more

I was kind of disappointed after watching this anime. I was expecting something else. I thought that it would be awesome. I only watched this anime because of it's name. I am a huge fan of anime and I love music. This is nothing compared to Nodame Cantabile. The problems that the protagonist is facing in Piano are not problems at all. She is not doing any thing at all. She is just playing the piano and crushing on some guy. She takes such little things as huge problems in life. Overall it's boring. I would never recommend this anime to anyone. There are better read more
