Is there anyone watching the Japanese drama Nodame Cantabile?? I heard its showing on 8TV on Sundays but I have no idea what time its at…

Anyway… A brief introduction to the drama (taken from Wiki)

~~ Based on the hit comic book by Tomoko Ninomiya, this is a fun-filled quirky romantic story of two very opposite people.

Megumi Noda, or “Nodame” is a piano student at Momogaoka College of Music. An extremely talented pianist who wants to be a kindergarten teacher, she prefers playing by ear rather than reading the music score. She is messy and disorganized, takes baths several days apart and loves to eat, sometimes stealing her friend’s lunchbox when it is filled with delicacies.

Shinichi Chiaki, is Momogaoka’s top student. Born into a musical family, he is talented in piano and violin and has secret ambitions to become a conductor. An arrogant multi-lingual perfectionist who once lived abroad in the music capitals of the world as a young boy (namely Prague), he is trapped in Japan because in his childhood, he was in both boat and airplane accidents, and is now terrified of planes and boats.

They meet by accident. Nodame quickly falls in love, but it takes much longer for Chiaki to even begin to appreciate Nodame’s unusual qualities. Their relationship causes them both to develop and grow. Along the way, they meet some crazy people (like Masumi, Mine, and Stresemann) and make lasting friendships. Because of Nodame, Chiaki got the opportunity to lead a student orchestra and begins to have a broader appreciation of people’s musical abilities. Because of Chiaki, Nodame faces her fears and enters a piano competition. Opportunities open up as both begin taking risks, stretching themselves far more than they ever thought possible. ~~

Its more less a drama about music and love… And its really a funny one… I urge those who have time to watch it… And it has many many orchestra recordings which I’m really impressed about…

Check this out~~~

~Here is one of the performance you can see in the drama… I like how they portray their own style of orchestra~~

Whats even better than there are fans who are really in love with it that they had made a fanvid of it…. Using the op of another drama Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger (which is more less something like Power Rangers)

Here’s the opening for the series TSD

~One thing I’ll have to agree on is that Japanese version of Rangers are soooo cool… Its when they get converted into the American version that it becomes terrible…. And the Japanese version opening songs are soooo much better than the American version~

~~

And this is the fanmade video of the above opening using Nodame Cantabile drama

~Admire the differences~

I wanna do something like that for my course as well… As a graduation video… But my skill are not where like the person who made that… I dont even know how to start~~ 😛
