Nodame Cantabile Paris-Hen 08 – Serious Nodame is serious
I’m glad to announce that professional jealousy goes both ways now…
After the concert from Hell, Chiaki is working at improving his orchestra, using the old technique known as “what would my mentor do ?”. Searching the orchestra’s library, he even comes across one of Stresemann’s own pieces. We shall be hearing that soon I guess.
Chiaki wants to make flowers bloom too
Enough about him, this episode is all Nodame’s. She has improved enough to upset Rui, to surprise Chiaki and to ace her exams. Nice job, Master Yoda ! She managed to grow up, hone her skills, and yet stay the same nice aloof girl. Have I already said that she’s awesome before ? Well I don’t mind repeating myself on this one. I just love her and it’s all there is to it !
Speaking of Nodame, the dynamics of her Yaki Trio are quite entertaining to watch. They’re all so serious and weird at the same time, yet good enough to make Chiaki want to enroll them. Having Paul wear a “Monkey” shirt may be emphasizing the weird part a bit too much though. And I’m not even going to start on his family…
Last but not least, Nodame gets a recital ! The Force is definitely with her. Chiaki will indeed have to work hard to fulfill his “vow of love”.
La Bretagne, the most beautiful place on Earth ! (this one’s for you, Francis)
