Nodame Cantabile is an absolutely fantastic Jdrama filled with slap stick humor, emotions, and music (if you want to view it its at JDRAMA).
This is a charming drama that I just can't get enough of! Its true I am actually waiting very impatiently to part 2 of the movie . . . soon I should have it soon! Back to teh drama though. It is about the sweet Nodame who is floating through life in her unique way and just enjoying her music, but not living up to her potential to be a great pianist. Then she meets Chiaki and arrogant composer and everything changes . . . the entire story is just enchanting.
The characters are fun (though I feel some of my favorites are under utilized). I also have a love/hate relationship with Chiaki who I feel doesn't always deserve the amazing Nodame, but I have hopes of him shaping up. So, far the specials and movie have been a touch disappointing as they don't add much . . . but I'm still hooked! I would highly recommend this one. Especially if you are new to Jdramas.
The OST is also great and worth downloading and listening too!
