Funny, I heard about the anime long time ago before I finally see this tankoubon. It seems like La Corda d’Oro comes from popular musical game. The anime was quite amusing, as well. As you can expect from a musical show, the soundtracks are amazing.
Yuki Kure sensei draws soft pictures. However, I-sometimes- find it’s hard to distinguish the sex of the characters. Girl may look masculine and boy could be so feminine. I think she fails to bring out the basic character of human. I mean, no matter how beautiful a boy is, he should come with masculine side so people can recognize his sexuality.
Well, the main characters are strong, so if we can move aside the supporting characters (which has ambiguity in sex, like Yunoki), everything’s perfect!

Perhaps, I should read this manga a long time ago. I didn’t like feminine boy character like this. It seems sissy. Ha ha ha
But, this manga came out at the good time. 2001 was the golden year of boy band. It was the great moment when you can see 5ive, Backstreet Boys and N’Sync from the west. That’s awesome for the country that prefers instrumental/voice skill more than just look. Well, isn’t that a boy band to us? Looks. He he
What about in Japan? I guess we can recall SMAP and Kinki Kids. I wasn’t Japanese boy band’s fan at that time. You know the reason: Yamapi was still a junior.lol. But, now I watch NewS, Arashi and Kat tun. And my favorite boy band is Kanjani 8 because they always make me laugh. What a great entertainer!
