It is too bad for Mugi that a freak shout on her part attracted the attention of Nono Ichinose. Nono is on a mission to save her Drama Research Society, and she isn't prepared to accept shyness as excuse from on-stage performances! With a small group of close friends to encourage and educate her, Mugi will be given a chance to be more than she is now. But, can someone so terribly shy really become a stage actress in just a few short months?
Hitohira and La Corda have a similar story, because the main characters accomplish something they would call impossible. Enjoy! :)
Both series revolve around high school students with special abilities. Mugi Asai (Hitohira) has an amazing voice but a fear of speaking in public, while Hino Kahoko (La Corda D'Oro ~primo passo~) has not yet realized her hidden talent for playing the violin. Both series are serious in nature but have a sense of lightness about them too.
Momo is loud, shallow, a player, a betrayer, and one to best stay away from -- or at least, that's the misconception people have when they see her makeup, bleached hair and suntanned skin. In reality, Momo just wants the same friends, hobbies and crushes any girl her age would like. However, when her only friend starts spreading rumours about her, her boyfriend starts to doubt her, and the most popular boy in school starts to take a more then friendly interest in her, she'll have much more to worry about than just her appearance!
La Corda D'Oro and Peach Girl both fall under the category of "reverse harem," where one girl gets close to a few boys who all fall in love with her. The boys in both of these series also have really cute personalities.
Each deals with issues in high school and the attitudes that are faced. There are trials and tribulations that everyone has to go through - facing that daunting situation known as high school. Hino (La Corda) has to prove her skill at playing the violin and Momo (Peach Girl) has to put up with a skimming Sae. Both series are artfully-animated with exceptional plot detail.
