10 years ago, Tanioka Hatsune was a famous young violinist. She won many international music competitions and performed with prestigious orchestras. For some reason, Tanioka Hatsune decided to walk away from her career and never perform on stage again. Now, she is 28-years-old and works as a public officer in Nishi Ward, Saitama City. She still enjoys to play the violin in private, but Tokiwa Asahi becomes aware of her. Tokiwa Asahi is a rising maestro, who is based in Germany. His love for music is so much, that he is very strict on his players. One day, his father, who is the head of Nishi Ward in Saitama City, tells him to return to Japan and rebuild the local Kodama Symphony Orchestra. He returns to Japan and begins to rebuild the local symphony in Saitama City. He tries to recruit Tanioka Hatsune to play the violin on stage once again. (Source: AsianWiki) Edit Translation

Heartwarming musical drama that depicts self acceptance, friendship and love

It is the story of a former violinist who is still madly in love with music but is afraid of starting again. It is also the story of a great conductor and his way of communicating through music. But then again, it is also the story of some of the members of an orchestra which has been taken for granted for a long time.

Pros

Great cast
Funny and full of feelings
Enjoyable music scenes
Characters portrait

Cons
It should be longer!!
Some silly villains :)
A bit predictable sometimes, but it does not affect the overall atmosphere

overrated

This drama got a lot of attention and top ranking positions from various comparing sites, so I expected a lot more form it as it actually has.

The acting is very good, the chosen pieces for the soundtrack are excellent and refreshing (almost only parts of classical music).
The team had for sure classical music counseling, because many scenes concerning the actual play in orchestra are very carefully conceived and filmed. However, the leaders of the team for sure ignored these counsels several times. For the sake of some (arguably) unnecessarily tension creation they made such terrible decisions! Several situations and scenes in the first half of the drama are such ridiculously wrong! Even a person having nothing in common with a classical orchestra can easily realize that that situations/decisions are strangely far of any conceivable reality. There were so bad moments that I was several time on the point of stopping watching the next episode. However, during the second part, these moments became sparser.

Again, only due to the great acting and good human qualities this drama is an enjoyable one.
However, there is no depth and practically no difference in value to an easy going summer drama.
So, if you do not expect much, this might be about 99% worth the time watching it.
