This is a story about a piano, pitifully abandoned in the woods, and a young boy, Kai, who grew up playing it as his favorite toy. While Kai cannot even read sheet music, one day, he meets Shuhei Amamiya, an aspiring child pianist who transfers schools from Tokyo, and their music teacher, Sosuke Ajino. Ajino was also once a gifted pianist, until a tragic accident stole his promising future from him forever. Each from a different background, the trio's personalities gravitate to one another and rebound. All the while, the piano sits patiently, awaiting a hand to play it.
This is one of the best manga I have read until now right next to "Nodame Cantabile". There are few reason for that: 1) main theme is music - I can't play any instruments but who cares? 2) main characters are growing up during story and I was growing with them (kind of.... I am one of the "oldest" fans probably ^^ 3) I am from Poland and I was so happy that big part of the plot is connected to my country. It is amazing feeling when You can see real places in manga world. 4) this is not exacly "sweet" story. Kai had really hard life at the beginig. Truth to be told they kind of tune it down in anime adaptation 5) And seriously - if You like Chopin just read it. Japanese people love him for a reason!
