There are very few manga series I've read to completion. And this one kind of took me by surprise. I picked up the first three at a convention about a year ago, mostly because the booth was having some kind of sale, not because the story sounded like something I just had to read. But after just two volumes, I found myself sucked in, already quite attached to the characters and the story's potential. I'll admit it.

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

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 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 ...
