This is based on the hit comic book by Tomoko Ninomiya, a fun-filled quirky romantic story of two very opposite people. Megumi Noda, or “Nodame” is a piano student at Momogaoka College of Music and Shinichi Chiaki, is Momogaoka’s top student. Born into a musical family
Nodame is an extremely talented pianist who wants to be a kindergarten teacher who he prefers playing by ear rather than reading the music score. She is also very messy and disorganized, loves to eat, sometimes stealing her friend’s lunchbox when it is filled with delicacies and has a very unusual habit of not taking a bath everyday.
He on the other hand is talented both in piano and violin. He wants to become a great conductor. A cocky, arrogant multi-lingual perfectionist who once traveled and lived abroad in different music capitals of the world when he was young boy.
They influenced each other on positive things, facing their fears and reaching their goals.
