I belive that if you liked the strange overly optimistic character that go 'no da' and love music in either
I believe that if you liked the strange overly optimistic character that says 'no da' and loves music in either Gravitation or la Corda d'Oro, and if you enjoy watching bishies, you should try out the other one.
These are anime that are grounded and centered in music; true, they are different kinds of music but the devotion is the same. La Corda d'Oro handles serious issues in a serious way while Gravitation resolves serious issues with humor. Both are definitely worth watching and as I said. If you love strange characters that say 'no da' then this is for you!
