Continuing my trend of watching anime with strange subject matter I’ve began watching Nodame Cantabile. It’s about some students at a music school and involves lots of piano playing and orchestra conducting. Surprisingly, its fantastic. It’s often funny enough to draw out a laugh of the out loud variety. The art is really good, and I love how they manage to work 3d in for when people are playing instruments up close. It is very well done.
It actually reminds me a lot of Yakitate Japan (an anime about baking bread which would also fall into the weird subject matter camp). What the hell japan? How can you make this crap interesting?!
