Good season! watched it so quickly. I will miss the OP and ED. Especially the ending, it's kind of addicting at this point, I've been humming the tune for a day now. The other characters grew on me as well. Such a wonderful journey, I want their romance to develop further with the next season, and of course more beautiful music to boot.

I give it a solid 7/10.

Not as crazy as the first season but still solid.

I am going to miss all those MUKYOOOOOO!!!!!!'s though. Nodame is awesome.

Chiaki is always given the sucky orchestras and fixes them. haha

I absolutely love this anime and I will be sad to start on the last season knowing it's the last one I'll watch. :(

The first and second season are not in anyway recognizable to me. I thought this season was 10xs better in every way. Story, character, and romantic progression was on high this season. I really enjoyed it.

The orchestra is alive again.
Kinda boring to be honest, I never liked the episodes with an orchestra.

Good season overall. Can't wait for the next one. I'm sort of hoping they bring back people from S1, Mine, Kiyora, the guy from Boston. Although I guess focus will be on Vierra next time. They also have to give a resolution to the romance. Damn I wonder how S3 is gonna go :D

Solid sequel. I can feel progress in story. 7/10.

Good enough sequel, doesn't have quite the charm of the first series because of less humour and music but works out pretty well for the main two characters, especially I liked the focus on Nodame and their relationship. 7/10.

Just when I thought I couldn't love this series even more.

Throughout my four previous experiences watching and reading Nodame Cantabile, I have never focused on the romance much. In fact, that's one of the things I've found it to be weak here even if I score every season a 10/10. But, after this season, my thoughts have changed.

The romance in Nodame Cantabile is really subtle, rather slow but natural. The flow of it is very smooth from small things - Chiaki's small touches to her face, to eventual hugs, to the kiss at the end of her Mozart concert. Not to mention, the pillow talk in the Mozart castle. It's so sweet. The romantic moments in this anime really shine, simply because they're so scarce and not overdramatic unlike some other romance anime that make it like a kiss = fireworks, sparkles and dramatic BGM. But with Nodame? It's like it belongs there.

I love that S2 ends with both of them, Noda and Shinichi, really happy and satisfied. She got to perform a recital successfully and he lead the orchestra to the goal.

Another thing that amazes me with Nodame Cantabile is that... Well, normally when I rewatch a long anime about a character's careers, I tend to skip the "downs", like when a character gets injured and suffers through trauma in a sports anime, I usually skip that and go directly to the meat of the series. But with Nodame Cantabile, I'm unable to skip any scenes or episodes like that. I thought the Rui arc would annoy me because I hate love rivals and such but I actually still liked it. As I've said before, the story here flows so excellently to the point where nothing can make me think "Ugh. This is dragging the plot!" or "When are we going to see the good stuff?" Everything is the good stuff.

Back to the romance: It's really great seeing Shinichi soften up to her. That one scene where he's stressed and she comes home. He shut the door on her but then opened it up and they went out for a walk. Wow. Like, did he just do THAT? This is coming from the guy that used to hit her and push her outside of his room. They're actually developing as a pairing and that's simply incredible to see.

Onto last season... Ah, I don't want this to end.


watch nodame cantabile

recommend me anything!

I wonder if Chiaki ever spoke with Vierra-sensei?
I'm surprised we were never shown Chiaki's reunion with him nor Chiaki studying under Vierra, I was surprised his Stresseman pupil relationship just continued.

I really enjoyed this second season, I've been binge watching the whole series since yesterday, this season didn't feel as climatic as the first season especially this last episode.

Also, we never saw Nodame play on stage with Chiaki, but I'm happy she began trying to catch up to Chiaki by the end of this season.
Looking forward to the next season

Glad to see that Chiakis hard work and determination eventually paid off, his and Nodames growth over this season satisfied me.

Although the plot wasn't quite as stirring as in the first installment, it was still a great watch overall. The characters alone are worth it.

Kokoro did nothing wrong.

Boring season. All I wanted was more Tanya screen time and fanservice.

Doesn't make sense why Chiaki would be with Nodame. She's a mess.

Barely a conclusion, felt just like any other episode. Good thing there's one more season left!

What can I say, I really enjoyed Paris-hen, the comedy was on point, and Nodame's French was definitely its own thing xD They've used some wonderful music, think I liked more pieces now, rather than during first season. Didn't mind the slow pace, glad to see Nodame finally found her goal in life, although I have no idea what more can they do with this series and these characters.

And I'm still not a fan of main couple's romantic relationship... I just don't feel it. Maybe the final season will improve chemistry between them, and make it more believable to me? Hopefully! 7/10

This episode is rushed.. It is still a good ending for the season, but they could easily stretch it to two episodes..

Chiaki did a good job discipling those good-for-nothing, mainly because of the new ones though, the old ones were straight up hopeless. Great ending.
