When they were young, Nino Arisugawa and Momo Sakaki had promised that if they were ever separated, they would use their song to find each other again. However, Momo moved away without notice, leaving Nino with a constant urge to scream. For this reason, she begins wearing a mask.
During this time, while still missing her first love, Nino encounters Kanada "Yuzu" Yuzuriha, a boy her age who composes music and gives her the nickname "Alice." Nino falls in love with his music, while Yuzu falls in love with her. Every Wednesday they would meet at the beach—but one day, Yuzu also stops coming.
Six years later, Nino and Yuzu reunite in high school—unbeknownst to her, Momo has also entered the same school. Holding on to the childhood promise she made with him, Nino sings Yuzu's songs, hoping that her voice can still reach Momo. However, while she tirelessly tries to reach him, Yuzu continues to long for her, escalating a love triangle that has been built across years of separation.
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~
I picked up this manga after recognizing the art style and finding out itd have a anime adaption further on in the year.
This anime is great, it isnt ok, its just fine. Its a good manga, compared to many others.
( My first thoughts )
This manga is about a young girl called Nino, having an unusual singing and two childhood friends she meets but suddenly disappears when shes younger want to 'obtain' it, and keep it to 'themselves', and wooow what a COINCIDENCE all of them meet in the same highschool. And oh noo, both of them are famous masked musicians.
Manga story is overall good, the story behind musicians is a great story. Its about two highschool rivals fighting for a spot in the music community while fighting their own family problems, while being a masked band. If i were to rate this part of the manga alone, id give it a solid 8.
The characters introduction; Ill skip the main character ( Nino ) for later.
Momo, the second character introduced in the manga. Ninos childhood friend/neighbor who also faced parental problems as a child with Nino. As he suddenly moves away to another neighborhood causing Nino to run out of class to meet our second character. Yuzu, the third character, a young boy who was banned from making music sheets by his mother and was later on hospitalized, every wednesday he escapes from the hospital to see Nino his new child friend. Finding out Nino had singing ability, making him want to write for her. Calling her 'My lost voice', later on he gives her the nickname 'Alice'. The encounter with Nino makes Yuzu influence the other kids he meets in the hospital to start a band with him when hes older and thus, the story was born. A band made for Alice, Yuzu's lost voice.
Momo on the other hand, serves as the Antagonist, a rival for Yuzu, after they meet up in highschool.
The art style:
The art style isnt great, it is bad either. Its understandable and mostly i dont let art styles bother me when reading.
Fukemenkei noise is about the main character Nino who joins a band with her childhood friend Yuzu, hoping to meet her other childhood friend Momo in the music industry, and thus, her first love.
this manga mostly focuses on the romance and the backstorys and the side storys of the other characters. And Ninos hoho wild singing.
The factors ( in my opinion )
The characters are way too clichéd.
Nino our protagonist has a special ability, is extremely talented, has long hair, has a wEiRd so random1!11!! personality and makes her different from everyone else.
And oh no! Two of her childhood friends who she didnt forget by the time she got the highschool are both in-love with her and never met anyone else during middleschool ( what even happened during middle school? )
And ooohh noo she has to fall in-love with the first male lead who keeps on telling her to 'go away' and that 'he doesn't want to see her'
And ohh noo the second male lead also has a childhood crush on her
and both of them miraculously meet again in highschool, despite the fact that our male lead supposedly moved away, and both of them are musicians.
And shes so special that no one can control her and theres been NO ONE ever like her before, and shes so special that ive never met another girl besides the main character in my life!11!! and thats there no other equally talented singers besides her111
and shes the only one for me1!11111
Overall; The story is good, theres some comedy and its ok, i had a few weak laughs. If i could take out the romance in this story, itd be a way better manga, this manga focuses more on the romance then the actual music, focuses on how ~~love~~ effects her singing. But ive only read about 32 chapters. If i could change the way the protagonist falls inlove with the main male lead, or how the second lead falls inlove. That'd be great.
The only thing I'd change, is the main character, she's so dumb and annoying, I wish itd focus on yuzu and glasses, they are so much more interesting. This manga would be so much better if nino wasn't nino.
So, id say, give it a shot. This manga is worth a read. If your a fan of these types of romances, its worth more then a 7.
That's my review.
