Yes, La Corda D’Oro:D
In Seiso Academy, the students were split into two sections — the General Education and the Music Education. Our main heroine here called Hino Kahoko, was a student from the General Ed. One day, she ran into a fairy called Lili, who’s a musical fairy that only appeared to certain people. It was hinted that the director of the academy could see this fairy as well. The Academy was going to hold it’s concours again, a competition for those who were good in music. Kaho was shocked to find herself listed as on of the participants even though she couldn’t play any instrument. It was revealed that Lili was the one behind this, and he gave her a magical violin for her to participate in the concours. She refused at first, but was pressed by Lili to join. Slowly, she began to fell in love with the violin and she met really nice people along the way [ Len Tsukimori, the blue hair guy, who played the violin. Kazuki Hihara, the light green hair guy, who played the trumpet. Ryuotaro Tschuira, the dark green hair guy, who played the piano. Azuma Yunoki, the purple hair guy, who played the flute. Keiji Shizumu, the blond hair guy, who played the cello. Shoko Fuyummi, a girl that is sadly not shown in the picture above, who played the clarinet]
Kaho met alot of obstacles along the way, but those people she loved and liked around her were always there to support her. Watch to find out what happen!
For me, I really like this anime because it revolves around music. The music that they play is so beautiful and it is because of this anime that I fell in love with a lot of new classical pieces that I’d never known before! There are other pieces that I’ve heard but I’d never known the name, so I was quite happy that the characters inside used these pieces. I don’t know if this is a spoiler, or if it will put off anyone who is going to watch it, but there is quite little romance here. Even though ultimately, almost all the male characters fell in love with the girl, the girl is the usual character whereby she remained oblivious to the attention she gained from those around her.
I can’t really tell if this will be good for those who don’t love music/ never liked music before, because I’m not one of them, so I can’t really put myself into their shoes. However, I would say that this anime is a good way to start exposing yourself to music, because it’s really good! Otherwise, one can also watch for the plot though I would say that he or she wouldn’t be enjoying the anime fully then.
I learn the piano and have only started loving it much more in the recent years/months. I’m fortunately one of those who chose piano out of my own accord, so I’m more willing to learn it as compared to those around me who were sort of forced by their parents. Therefore, this anime is very enjoyable to me! So much so that as aforementioned, I’ve managed to finish 20 episodes in like… 2 days, and finished the entire season 1 + special episode + 2 more episodes titled: La Corda D’Oro Secondo Passo
I didn’t read the manga though but I would love to check it out when my exams are over!
*For those who are interested, in La Corda D’Oro, they played really nice and famous pieces like Ave Maria, Serenade by Schubert, La Campanella, Salut D’Amour etc
Hope this review helps!^^
