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

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

I went in to this manga with high expectations, as it was illustrated by one of my favorite up-and-coming manga artists, Aka Akasaka. I've also seen a lot of praise for this manga in the reviews so I figured I might read it, as a story about music is never not interesting...

Is what I'd like to say, but I sadly can't.

This manga sucks.

If you're expecting a good story, Sayonara Piano Sonata is nothing of the sort. It starts off with a pretty cliché premise about a guy-meets-girl...in a dumpster, and both of them coincidentally have backgrounds in the classical music scene. Naomi Hikawa, our main read more
