Aono Hajime was a prodigy violinist until he grew jaded with playing the violin due to personal reasons. Now in his third year of middle school, he struggles to decide his academic path. One day in school, he meets Akine Ritsuko, a hotheaded novice violinist who wants to enroll in a high school with a distinguished orchestra club. When he finds himself getting closer to Ritsuko and being brought back to the world of violinists, time starts moving again for him.

This is the beginning of a youthful drama where sounds and hearts alike resound in harmony.

It’s my first review so....

Anyways in overall if you liked shigatsu wa kimo no uso, then you would probably like it. Also goes for whoever that likes music anime/manga. The plots somewhat different and similar at the same time.

For example both protagonists start out as a character who quitted whatever they were playing(arima- piano, aono- violin)

Also I think ao no orchestra has more interactions with more characters, so you can also see experiences of other characters not just the main protagonist

It’s a pretty good manga. I would recommend it. The art is really good too. Depending on the situation, the art is either rough read more

At the first 5 or 7 chapter I feel that this manga is just "meh." I mean I thought that this will be a "Your lie in April" wannabe you know some emo musicians, but it surprise me that it took a different course. It is like when you read sports manga and you were glad that it focuses more on sports rather than romance, this is what I'm feeling! Plus the characters, although some of them starts to be like a weak character(I mean their appeal), they all grow. So far the 21 chapters have build enough. The art is good and damn! If read more

This manga is fine, but it is not propulsive dramatically. we don't know well what motivates the mc, he kind of just goes with the flow of the story. he does not make decisions, so the story just passes by. there is nothing major to resolve, so it just goes forward, burning through so many setups with no real development or payoff.

The art is fine, i wish the writing allowed for more expressive scenes, there is talent in the art side that i'd want to see expanded upon.

Overall, this manga is fine. not the worst read, but it just seems like there are many squandered read more

Out of all the music genre manga, Ao no Orchestra is one of the best I have read so far.

Ao no Orchestra is a story that revolves around the main character, Aono who is a violinist prodigy. However, due to family circumstances, he quits playing the violin.

Aono meets Akine who reignites his passion for music and violin. Both join a high school orchestra where they display their talents and hard work.

As you continue to read, the drama just gets better.

The story's drama and music makes the manga more amazing. The story is written with a good pace and is not rushed. read more
