Plot Summary


A tranquil tale about two boys from very different upbringings. On one hand you have Kai, born as the son of a prostitute, who's been playing the abandoned piano in the forest near his home ever since he was young. And on the other you have Syuhei, practically breast-fed by the piano as the son of a family of prestigious pianists. Yet it is their common bond with the piano that eventually intertwines their paths in life.

So far, no announcement has been made as to where it is streaming. I can expect Crunchyroll to make a late announcement on it, but at this time it looks like the first episode will be late.

Wow, this is quite something. The piano music is very noticable from the start and strikes to me like an artistic performance. The camera angles focusing on the hand movements, facial expressions, and realism is very done imo. I pictured some of the sceens from the manga for this anime and it comes out as the way I anticipated.

I should say the show features a lot of character study so I'm really curious how they can handle it for a 12 episode adaptation. The manga runs for a lot of chapters and eh, I was kinda disappointed when the episode # was shown.

That being said, I think the main characters are interesting not just for their skills but also just how they be related to real people. The animation quality looks nice, faithful to the manga so far. One of the most noticable parts of the episode is actually the piano in the forest. The segment just looks so natural.

A solid start!

On their website as of 4/6, it says that Netflix will be distributing it...so I'm assuming CR can't get it?

So with this going to Netflix, that means I can cross this off my season watchlist. I was looking forward to it, but I have plenty of other stuff I want to watch that it's actually provides some relief given how loaded this season is. The show will be coming to Netflix in the fall, so it's going to be a wait of at least six months.

Saw the first ep and I'll look forward to binging this on Netflix. CG is weird, but rest was good!
