It starts off a little slow - at least for me, the start was boring. But soon you get attached to the characters; each of them has their own problems shown, from the protagonist to the "antagonist" to the cheery friend who you'd expect to only be a background character. The characters are always the best part of a work to me, and Shounen Note's do not fail expectations at all (besides one character that's brushed off as Aoi graduates and is never spoken of again). Here's a hook for you: it even has a canon transgendered character who's portrayed in a serious light (!!!!)
