Nodame Cantabile undoubtedly a masterwork with its devastating humor, his 2 beautiful characters that are endearing is a pure pleasure.This is an excellent series in the comic genre and musical. A watch absolutely. A true moment of happiness.
Although I haven't read the manga but basing on the anime that I've watched, it's really interesting. I already finished watching the first 2 seasons of Nodame and I was really hooked. I'm excited to see more of it and I think I'll start reading the manga. ^^
Ok am I the only one seriously annoyed by 128 (as well as 127) with the way the confrontation between Nodame and Chiaki is being dragged along. I don't understand why people are cheering that 128 finally Nodame rejected him. But based on her reaction I don't think her "I don't want to see him." is a firm rejection rather just a response to run away from the issue. Same with Chiaki who rather than racing to see her he actually wanted to head home, he only went there because he got dragged there, rather than confront the issue at hand. 128 had a lot of superfluous pages, namely the orchestra scenes, bravo's, and random audience faces, could have been cut down in favor of actual development or dialogue (I know it adds to the atmosphere but I don't think cutting down the pannels into only containing 2 images and creating a variation of it was that necessary to set the mood since I think the mood was already set well.) Just look at pages 11-20 of chapter 128 to see my point (its uploaded in mangafox.com but they don't allow hot linking so I can't post it here.)
Honestly, its quite a disappointment how a resolution for such a big issue is being postponed further. I wouldn't be so furious if this were a weekly manga but this isn't so every chapter released has a much bigger weight in progressing. Does anyone else feel this?

Mangatraders doesn't seem to be working, can anyone upload this to mediafire for me? Thanks.
Yeah I sort of feel the same way. She was being such a drama queen and now she seems to be a bit annoying with her reaction to Chiaki coming to see her. Although wasn't it him who decided that he absolutely wanted to go see her performance, not him being dragged to go there? Although I do think the orchestra ordeal could have been shorter, isn't that how it has always been? The mangaka is having health issues, so I'm not too mad about the way things are with the releases.

Thanks V, much appreciated.
What I mean by dragged there isn't going to watch the orchestra but rather visiting Nodame backstage. Which is precisely what I find odd, or rather frustrating, since why the hell is Chiaki being hesitant to meet her.Its clear that he's simply running away again, after all he mentions that he'll just go see her when he gets home (presumably when they both return to Paris), yet it doesn't jive with the chapter and the chapter before that which ends up making this chapter appear rather poor. Poor in that I don't feel so convinced or moved to believe that that either character would run away from the issue at hand, considering that Nodame in a sense "faced the music" and played in an orchestra and Chiaki actually left what he was doing all just to listen to Nodame, and so I am cross at the development that seems more like dragging the story at hand.
