Shinichi Chiaki conquers his fear of flying, and Megumi "Nodame" Noda's exceptional performance at a piano competition earns her an invitation to study at the prestigious Conservatoire de Paris. The pair go to Paris together to take the next step in their careers: Chiaki as a new rising conductor under the wing of the great maestro Franz von Stresemann, and Nodame as a pupil of the esteemed piano professor Charles Auclair.

But, of course, the music world is much bigger than the two of them could have ever imagined. Chiaki and Nodame, alongside old friends and new rivals, must fight and persevere to reach the dazzling musical heights that await them while never losing sight of what matters most.

Talking about the series of Nodame Cantabile, one could safely say that the theme of music, including one's failures, successes, sacrifices, and efforts in this area, and the theme of love relationships, including the relationship of a couple, the evolution of the feelings one has and how others see the couple, are perfectly in harmony as if they were part of a melody. This second season is clear proof of this, as well as being the most successful part from this point of view: the evolution of the plot and, above all, of the characters is grandly developed, blending perfectly with their music.

Mixed Feelings
Being eager to continue the Nodame Cantabile series after thoroughly enjoying season 1, I instantly jumped into season 2 and finished it in a day's time.

Unfortunately, I was underwhelmed with what it had to offer. Season 2 seems a bit more like a watered down than the first season, and it didn't hold my attention as well as I expected it to.

Story: There not really a story here to be frank, it's just Chiaki performing in Paris. Season one had a similar case of a sort of loose story structure, but that was somewhat passable because Season 1 was very humor-heavy. These 11 episodes just ...
