With the start of the Chopin piano competition, Kai Ichinose, Shuuhei Amamiya, and many other hopeful musicians from around the world strive to reach the top. The stakes have never been higher, and the judges are rigorous when it comes to selecting the winner out of the plethora of talented pianists. This competition is so harsh that even famous prodigies can be easily eliminated.

Some play for the money, some play to fulfill their duty to their families, and yet others play for their music to be heard. However, the only one who can reach the top is the one who embodies the spirit of the music Frédéric Chopin crafted for future generations. With the stakes higher than ever before, rivalries, friendships, and family ties will be tested, and each pianist will find their own sound.

I want to write a review here because this anime is unfortunately too underrated and I am in love with it. So, hi! minor spoiler maybe.

Just to get it out of the way: By the looks of it, namely the art, it's not reeeeally good and some shots look cheap, I wish they had done a better job. And you may overlook this series if you just want something quick paced.
Forget all that, where Piano no Mori shines is in its subtle undertones.

Albeit at first glance it presents itself with a known formula of poor boy-rich boy, it goes on and carries much more than ...

I think more than ever I wish the characters in this show would just shut up.  Because the plot is so focused on playing the piano and the sound that comes from it, not having just pure peace and letting the notes fly is a weird detriment to the whole thing.

Piano no Mori continues the story back in Poland where our dual protagonists of Ichinose Kai and Amamiya Shuhei move onto the next stage of the Chopin competition, using the rest of the runtime to find themselves in the realm of music and their reason to play the piano.

Compared to the whimsical and often time ...
