At a top music academy in Japan, Shinichi Chiaki's arrogance is matched only by his top-notch piano playing. But when Chiaki and the teacher get into a fight, he's demoted to the reject class. Chiaki is left to pursue his dream of being a composer while surrounded by a bunch of loser musicians and one annoying girl, Noda, who has proclaimed herself Chiaki's girlfriend. It doesn't help that Noda, who insists on being called Nodame, lives right next door to him.
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, he feels mired in Japan because of a childhood phobia.
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. Because of Nodame, Chiaki transfers into the Conductor Division, leads 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.
Noda Megumi aka Nodame. She plays "random" piano, or you can say she plays with her feelings. And she is a music genius!
Chiaki Shinichi. He is the high and mighty Chiaki-sama. If you play bad music, then he will say you are trash. And he has insane fans always following him. Just look at them at the background! And he wants to be a conductor!
Nodame's room. She and I are alike, although I don't have that much trash compare to her!
Where The Love Begins! (not really, but for me, it does!)
Then came along Franz Stresemann a world class conductor...... he wants a rag-tag group of people he selected to play in a orchestra.
Wanted by the Maestro!
"S" Orchestra. This is how Chiaki-same got his break at conducting! And it's "S" for Special members!
Franz Stressemann showing Chiaki how it's done!
Director of Momogaoka College of Music. She and Franz knew each other WAAAAAYYYY back.
Then came that fateful day where Chiaki is asked to form his own orchestra, and the result is as follow:
Rising ☆Star Orchestra.
Conductor: Chiaki Shinichi.
Verdict by Maestro : No problems.
Standing ovation : Yes.
This is just my screenshots filler, ignoring it would be devastating!
Rising ☆Star Orchestra house.
Nodame's family are just as wacky as her! Chiaki-same found out the "hard" way!
Where is the love? Where is the love? Where is the love? The Love, the LOVE!
