** Rui and Nodame towards each other. Nodame's in awe of Rui's talent and prestige and her ability to play with Chiaki, and so she often strives to be as good as her. Little to her knowledge, Rui also views her as one - despite being a CloudCuckooLander, Nodame's interesting, erratic and spontaneous playing and her ability to draw people with it is what makes Rui jealous herself.

''Nodame Cantabile'' is a sweet {{slice of life}} drama, and both the anime and live action drama have strengths. It has some striking similarities with ''Manga/HoneyAndClover'', another show produced by J.C. Staff about quirky young people who pursue creative studies at college (art school, in that case). 2 sequel seasons were released, "Paris Chapters" and "Finale", both of which detail the manga chapters that take place in Europe, mostly Paris. The anime in general follows the manga very closely, so much so that the season titled "Finale" isn't really a finale at all because the anime leaves the story open much like the manga did in those parallel chapters. The manga ended in September 2010 with a two-volume sequel collectively known as "Opera-hen", bringing the total volume count to 25.

The Japanese {{dorama}} was made in 2006, followed by two special episodes and two movies. A KoreanDrama remake called ''Naeil Cantabile'' (Tomorrow Cantabile) also started airing in October 2014.

The show is highlighted by its beautiful performances of classical music, as well as its seamless blending of said music into the creative lives of its characters. [[http://www.crackle.com/c/Nodame_Cantabile Season 1 is available in English]] on Crackle.

* ContrivedCoincidence:
** Earlier Chiaki initially decides to live in Prague when he learns Nodame was going to Paris. Then it's revealed that his father is relocating to Prague, and his mother knows that Shinichi would not want to make contact with him - sure enough he also moves to Paris with Nodame.
** Nodame hears Ravel's ''Piano Concerto in G Major'' for the first time and is inspired to perform it with Chiaki. However, that is also the same piece Chiaki is to perform with Rui. It absolutely breaks both of them when they find out separately.
* CovertPervert:
** Quite a few, whether it be Nodame trying to take Chiaki's shirt off or the replacement violinist Takahashi watching Chiaki take his off in the change room. Though itís mostly all played for laughs.
** Chiaki surprisingly exhibits some aspects of this too, such as his reaction when he discovered Nodame is actually a HiddenBuxom and his reactions to girls with revealing chests in his face.



* CoolandUnusualPunishment: After taking first place during his first conducting competition in France, Chiaki is kidnapped by [[BeleagueredAssistant Elise]], [[TricksterMentor Franz von Stresemann]]'s agent and manager, with the goal of forcing him to sign on with her publicity agency. When he refuses even after being beaten up by one of her bodyguards, she resorts to [[FelonyMisdemeanor tickling him with backscratchers until he submits]].

* AwesomeMusic: With a PublicDomainSoundtrack featuring music from [[LudwigVanBeethoven Beethoven]] to [[MauriceRavel Ravel]], that is performed by the RealLife Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, this trope is a given for fans of classical music. Notable performances include the concerts of the in-universe [[RagTagBunchOfMisfits S-Orchestra/Rising Star Orchestra]] from Season 1, and any pieces played by Chiaki or Nodame ([[BrilliantButLazy when she is properly motivated]]). Also of note is the anime's first OP theme: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZZAd3BVHV4 'Allegro Cantabile' by SUEMITSU & THE SUEMITH]]; the lyrics of which are about the joys devoting one's life to playing music. The first ED theme: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lZxggflHeRw 'Konna ni Chikaku de...' by Crystal Kay]] is also beautiful. If there were a theme song for the tropes CannotSpitItOut, and AllLoveIsUnrequited, it would be this.

* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: In the live action adaptation, Nodame always has perfect makeup on even though she's supposed to be a total slob. The make up is minimal though and justified as actors have to wear good make up for filming. Of course this is averted when Nodame overapplies the make-up and becomes a CosmeticCatastrophe.

It's seen afterwards that he's still comically afraid of non-land based travel, it's just that he can take it when there aren't any other options.
