Nino likes singing and is a loner who walks around with a mask and headphones all day. When she was younger, her childhood friend Momo disappeared and they made a promise that they'll meet again with her song as a sign. While waiting for Momo to come back, she meets Yuzu and falls in love with the songs he composes immediately yet he disappears from her too.
Six years pass and Nino reunites with Yuzu at school, but her song still unable to reach Momo.
Fukumenkei Noise is a new manga that I bet will be very popular. There are only 14 chapters translated at the moment, but I think people should know this manga is good and give it a chance.
Story(8): It's not original, but good. I could provide a better summary than the one on MAL, but that could spoiler the story. To be honest, the summary didn't attract me one bit because it seems cliche, I picked up this manga because I simply liked the cover. This story is about music and love.
Art(9): It looks typical shoujo, but it has something special. The characters looks different and are unique in their own way. I personally loved the art. The costumes are gorgeous and the backgrounds well done.
Character(9): The main character, Nino, is a girl who loves two things: her childhood friend, Momo, and to sing. I can't tell for sure but I think her development on this story will be based on those two things. She's very attached to Momo and her feelings for him make her drive her to make things one would not usually dare to. Some may think she's your typical, shoujo heroine: innocent, always cheerful and without worry in the world. That's where the manga shines. She's not like this, she has an unique character. She's not just sitting around waiting for her prince to come and pick her up, she does everything in her power to find him. She's not perfect either which only makes the reader love her more because she seems more real. About the other characters, they are unique in their own way. Sure, there's the rival girl, the ladies-man, the childhood friend and the boy who likes her but they are different than the typical stereotype. The rival girl doesn't act like a brat who deserves everything, the ladies-man has an unrequied love, the childhood friend has his reasons for the way he's acting and the boy who likes her as well.
Enjoyment(10): The story got me hooked on an instant. Why? Because it's not predictable. You can't tell what's going to happen next, how will the main character react and so on. Most chapters will end with a cliffhanger.
I totally recommend this refreshing manga for anyone who's tired of typical-shooujo stories.
Although Fukumenkei Noise is a relatively new manga, I am sure that it will become very popular in the future. It's an amazing story and you should give it a chance. Hopefully, this review might clear your doubts on picking up this series.
To be honest, I picked up this manga on a complete whim and didn't expect anything from it. The cover is slightly interesting and the synopsis provided was quite bland. It was pure luck that I began to read it, but I'm really glad that I made this choice.
When I started reading it, something miraculous occurred. I was hooked. Completely and utterly hooked. Here's a small piece of advice for you: Don't judge a manga by its synopsis. This manga is so much more than that. Albeit a bit cliché, it's meaningful, entertaining, filled with suspense, and contains many more elements than what is provided in the synopsis.
Story (10): Fukumenkei Noise is an absolutely amazing story. It has just the right amount of suspense, excitement, romance, and is surprisingly down to earth. It's a story that you can relate to. It's quite enjoyable and is a pretty good read. Although it sounds just a little cliché, it's actually a unique story. It's one of those stories that you can't help but stick with. Trust me, the plot is fantastic.
Art (9): In my personal opinion, the art is much nicer than a lot of your typical shoujo mangas. The main characters are actually pretty gorgeous, and if you're not careful, you'll be falling in love with them yourself. The mangaka truly is a genius. The characters are all drawn amazingly, the backgrounds are satisfying, and there's plenty of eye candy too. In short, the art is pleasing.
Character (9): The characters are all pretty deep. They were really well thought out and seem to have a lot of insight to them. The main character isn't a weak girl. She's a strong character that realistically portrays the feelings of losing and missing someone important to her. She's powerful and evokes many emotions throughout the story and I have to admit that she's one of my favorite manga characters of all time. Although she was hurt before, she gets right back up on her feet and keeps singing. She has a burning will, determination, and passion. No matter what, she will not give up. It's like she's a flame that stubbornly refuses to be extinguished. This girl is dedicated. The two main guys in this story are both complicated characters that have several reasons that they act the way they do. Okay, okay, and they're both just so adorable. When I say adorable, I mean hot, lovable, cute, etc. These characters are quite atypical and are all deeper than they seem. I could go on and on and on forever about how amazing all the characters are, but I don't want to make this too long. There are no annoying characters in the story. Most of the characters will grow on you. Give them a chance by at least picking up the first volume. You won't regret it.
Enjoyment (10): I really did enjoy this series a lot and hope to see it grow in the future. As I mentioned earlier, it's one of those series that you will enjoy from the beginning, and it's also one of those series that you're most likely going to stick with until the end. Before you dismiss the idea of reading this series, you should definitely give it a chance. You'll never know what you're missing out on until you give it a try. It might just become your new addiction. It certainly has become mine. The manga is completely outstanding and will definitely be climbing up the ranks as it progresses, so don't hesitate to check it out.
I wholeheartedly and adamantly recommend this series for shoujo fans and also for those that are looking for a unique manga that's better than your typical one. Happy reading~ read more
