___________________________________________ Review the 4th

Chihuahua Review(short&sweet): This is NOT a special lesson in the music sense(they're at the beach). If you're gonna watch this it is recommended to be watched AFTER EPISODE 8. Get ready for a little summer fun from Chiaki and friends.

------------------------------>In Depth Review:<------------------------
STORY: This is filler of the stop Chiaki and friends took on the way to the music festival in Nagano. Here a certain character's fear of water is inadvertently exploited by his/her unknowing comrades.^_^ This results in some mild humor and antics familiar to that of the series. Overall its funny but not to the level of some great extras read more

Although the series are all very highly rated (and deservedly so), the "Nodame Cantabile" specials are not so hot. This special is probably the lowest rated one of the lot (and deservedly so). For one thing, it's only about half the length of a normal episode, which is not enough time to fit in anything of particular interest. For another, it's a beach episode, but since it's a josei, the result is a pseudo reverse harem-esq situation involving the afro timpanist (who I originally thought to be a girl, but who is actually a guy who acts like a girl, apparently) and Nodame fighting over read more

What made the Nodame Cantabile series work are the wacky humor, great characters, and some great classical music pieces. There is a decent amount of Chopin that arouses my classical music love. No one can truly forget Chiaki's performance of Piano Concerto No. 2 in C Minor by Sergei Vasilievich Rachmaninoff. This is what made Nodame Cantabile work and I consider it a masterpiece of a work.

Thus, I finish off the intro with these following thoughts: Nodame Cantabile is a coming-of-age and romance story of two classical musicians aspiring to work together in prestigious orchestras. Nodame Cantabile Special is a beach episode.

Something is clearly wrong.
