This 2 night special takes off during their graduation, where Chiaki-senpai & Nodame left for Europe. The first special centered on Chiaki's story, the story tells about Chiaki's dream to be a conductor. Nodame on the other hand attended the conservatory to attain her dream to one-day play the piano for Chiaki. After her hard work, Nodame was given a chance to have a mini recital. During the recital, Chiaki saw her read moreworth and realized that he cannot go on with out her. -dramawiki

The follow-up story is based on next parts of the brilliant original manga, so its not something made up only to relive the drama. The action moves to a new exiting location and some fresh hilarious characters are added. The story of making a professional career in music gets bigger and more serious for both leads and their romance develops in the quirkiest way. Gyaboo!

It's been a week since I watched this 2 parts special, but don't worry people, since this is Nodame Cantabile we're talking about, I'm confident that I can still remember it crystal clear.

The first installment of the special is fantastic but the second part is my favorite (if you have watched this, they you know what I'm talking about)! This special picks up from where it left off on the drama read more series. It's still hilarious as ever. On this special, we got to meet new amazing people. If you love the drama series, you'll definitely like this as well.

Really love it. Though compared to the series, you'll find the musical things more longer on the special, but I wouldn't call them boring because...

The cast did an amazing job on portraying their roles. Ueno Juri and Tamaki Hiroshi were amazing as usual. And so are the supporting casts, I don't really have anything bad to say on this department.

Umm, it's classic music, right?

I wouldn't mind rewatching when I have time.


I've got so much to say but I'm afraid it would be full of spoilers.
Fasten your seat belt, and let's fly to Europe! Mukyaa!!!

(I know this is not related ... FYI on this upcoming movie, starring Ueno Juri with Matsumoto Jun:

    Once again more useless disgusting despicable and useless trash to destroy a really great masterpiece, had it not been for the horrendous disgusting and despicable homosexuality and triangles this would have been a strong solid and high 10. At the end of the 1st part of this special, they already bring in a stupid other obsessed idiot to come on to Nodame, and a lowlife scum, just as obsessed, probably more, bitch, to come on to Chiaki san, give it up already with such childish, not even childish, children don't do such disgusting and stupid actions, give up on adding such trash to such great stories already.

    Nodame says, "mukyaaa" a lot during the second half of the special, as well.

    What does "mukyaaa!" mean? Nodame says it during the first half of the Europe special, after picking the last piece for Chiaki to conduct during the final round. There are a few other words that show up in Japanese in the English subs, as well.

    I finished the 1st part, and it's really great. I wonder why this special doesn't seem to get the same attention as the drama series?? Off to part 2! :)
