Every few years, the prestigious Seiso Academy holds a prominent musical competition, and only the very best students at the Academy are allowed to participate. Though all are eligible to apply, only students from the music department actually make it to the competition...until now.

This can only be described as a beautiful manga, the art was drawn so well, you could see each character grow as well. Personally this manga just made me really happy while reading it, the author put so much passion into the story and it's made me want to headphones on listen to classical music (something I very rarely do) close my eyes and just feel the music.

This is by far one of the best manga series I've read. As a music student, I really enjoy music school themed anime/manga so I loved La Corda d'Oro.

Story 8/10
The story is intriguing and interesting, each characters individual stories were fascinating and you really could see character development throughout the series.

Art 10/10
By far one of my favorite styles. I loved the art overall, especially the detail in the musical instruments.

Character 9/10
Sometimes Kahoko annoyed me, but I could relate to her a lot as her music experience is similar to mine. She is one of my favorite girl characters.

Mixed Feelings
First of all, I would like to clarify that I am an avid fan of romance, to the point that I have become quite strict with romantic works (especially the shoujo ones), since I have read so many. That being said, I can still find them enjoyable and easy to read even if there are flaws. That is more or less the case with Kiniro no Corda (La Corda d'Oro); I enjoyed the ride, but cannot honestly say it was really good. I would say my biggest problem of all was that the start gave me a ton of expectations that unfortunately… were not favorably ...
