Nodame Cantabile, Series Finale!  
Waaah, I just watched the finale of Nodame Cantabile (the series, I haven't seen the specials yet) and it was SO GOOD. I can't even articulate how much I've grown to love this show and these characters and the wonderful music they add such an emotion punch to. It's safe to say there will soon be a picspamy post about this show. ;)



Ah, I'm so predicable! I loved Chiaki going to Nodame completely-not-metropolitan hometown to bring her back to the piano and him OMG I'm not her boyfriend stopping saying that. To don't know why the Japanese are so obsessed with the backwards hug but this was the MOST ADORABLE one I've seen. Chiaki and Nodame were very much a slow build for me, starting with "Aw, cute! They're so different but it's good for both them." to "OTP! Oh god, they need to live together in THE CITY OF LIGHTS WHO ARE THEY KIDDING!".

I really love the secondary couple of Mine and Kiyora too. They got to have sex, you guys! I know I'm a drama newbie, but this was my first couple that really got some action! (I actually didn't believe it was happening at the time: "Kiyora, is that a post-coital cigarette? Naaaaw, can't be... OH MAN. GOOD WORK, GIRL!") What can I say, I'm a sucker for the boyfriend who's kind of totally overenthusiastic and dumb sometimes but is also so sweet.

And I just wanted the final concert to last forever. The music is gorgeous and it seems even better because you're so emotionally invested in the characters playing it. When they were saying their goodbyes before Beethoven Symphony No. 7, I was getting seriously emotional but by the time they did they're showing S-Oke instrument spinning at the end of the pieces, I lost it. I love all of the Rising Star Orchestra so much.

I can't even tell you how excited I am that I still have the special left. Especially since I've heard it's just as also as the series. I think I scheduling it for next weekend, so I can have a little break but still be really into the show. NODAMEEE!

ALSO, I bought myself a nice Riesling to try and I may have gone a little overboard with it. So this flailing is probably totally pointless and silly (like I often am ;D) but mmm, BEX, so cheap and so good. XD

Oh man I loved the finale of Nodame! Such a good show! Have you watched the Specials yet? I love the Specials so, so much I don't even have words for their amazing. I cried like five million times during the specials. Nodame and Chiaki are such love!

I'm stretching out the specials as long as I can wait! I SO don't want the series to be over! But I just watched the first half last night and it was AH-MAZING. There was strange foreigner COSPLAY! "Are those your compatriots?" XD And Nodame all tied up (kinky!) and staring longingly at Chiaki's naked feet! "It's like torture!" I can't even express my love for this completely crazy, awesome OTP. And, as always, Chiaki conducts his little heart out and I tear up. I'm such a GIRL. :D

Haha! That sounds like a good way to prolong the end. Although I might be misremembering but I think they might be making another Nodame special soon? I have no idea if I'm just thinking of something else or remember wrong but I do remember thinking "YAY SPECIAL" so it might be true. I really want more Nodame specials. They are so great.

And, as always, Chiaki conducts his little heart out and I tear up. I'm such a GIRL. :D
You don't even understand, I cried like ten times during those specials. I cried at everything. I was trapped in a glass glass of emotions!

(icon twins! Young Jae approves of our comments)

I think you're right! I remember hearing something along those lines when I started watching the show but at the time I didn't know HOW DEEPLY IN LOVE I'd be with it so I didn't pay much attention. Please YES, I need more crazy OTP and STIRRING MUSIC and Tamaki Hiroshi HOTNESS. Thank you, Japan!

LOL, I don't know if I'm quite making that quota! I'll have to see how much the ENDING ending makes me cry.

(I need more drama icons. The proportion of them in my userpics does not match the amount of time I spend in drama-related squeeing. And of course Young-jae approves, he's such a SAP. Do you remember when they rewrote their marriage contract and he HUGGED a copy to his chest that night? ...He's SO cry ten times during the special.)

YAY! I'm glad I'm not remembering that wrong! Usually these kinds of rumors turn out to be true which makes me happy! Like I remember when Hanadan ended and everyone was like "Sequel now plz!" and then there was and then the second season ended and everyone was like "Special/movie plz!" and then there was!

Please YES, I need more crazy OTP and STIRRING MUSIC and Tamaki Hiroshi HOTNESS. Thank you, Japan!
That's pretty much the best description for the show ever. I love Nodam so much. I might have to rewatch the Specials again. I'm due for a good cry!

Those specials are so EMOTIONAL. Seriously. Both of them are so good it's amazing.

I too totally need more drama icons. As it is I only really have HYD and Full House icons. That has to be fixed! I need some Nodame! And Maou possibly? I definitly needs something with Toma, preferrably running! Run Toma Run!

Do you remember when they rewrote their marriage contract and he HUGGED a copy to his chest that night? ...He's SO cry ten times during the special.
AWW! I totally forgot about that! He is such a precious little snowflake! I want to be besties with Young Jae so we can watch the specials together and cry and share ~fashion~ tips!
