Sayonara Piano Sonata is the epitome of an underrated gem, lost to the waves of time and only standing out in an ocean of short manga due to extensive use of its brief runtime to develop the entirety of its cast, flesh out its themes and provide a satisfactory conclusion over the course of its three volume run. It accomplishes this in spite of its broad focus on a sizable cast of characters, backed by a memorable dynamic between both of its main leads, likable side characters that don't clutter up time from the main couple but if anything enhance it, a heartfelt and powerful read more

Sayonara Piano Sonata was a good manga to read simply because it shows how each one affects the other and how music became the center of all things.

Story-wise, it was good. The pacing and the interactions of the characters though some characters should have been given some importance such as the parents of the Mafuyu since they were introduced latter in the story[the mother that is]. It would have been better if the parents' problems were a bit exposed rather than a preview.

The art was... okay. It was not bad, but there were times where I felt the artist was too tired read more

“-Boy, What do you think mankind lives for? The answer is simple: Love and Revolution. In my opinion love, revolution and music are inseparable.-”

Story: 9/10
REALLY a good read, I love how everything was related to music at first but later it is more like a complement of their story
I felt the end a bit rushed, I get the idea about running away and living your dreams but where’s the revolution?! I mean I feel like there was something else, this manga needs a more volumes! A lot was not revealed, I guess I need to read the light novel, however they managed well read more

sayonara piano sonata, as you can expect from the title it's about music (no shit sherlock) being only 16 chapter makes it compact and easy to read, i just read it overnight

a farewell piano sonata that get through the reader. that what i can say about this series. still, at first time i read the "piano sonata" on the title i imagine it was about classic music only like nodame cantabile. but, it seems like the writer had good sense of modern music as well, they put some rock n roll like paul mccartney's blackbird as well beside the chopin's fantaisie impromptu. i can say read more
