These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Nodame Cantabile
Ass Pull: The resolution of Rui's storyline in the anime. Trust me, you're better off knowing.
Not to mention Episode 11, the entire first half of which consists of Chiaki and the A orchestra playing the hell out of Rachmaninoff.
Can we just give the whole series this and call it?
Dude, Not Funny!: Chiaki frequently uses physical violence against Nodame, played for laughs in the manner of a Boke and Tsukkomi Routine. In the live-action version especially, however, it comes across as less slapstick and a bit more disturbing...
In one of the Paris-Hen episodes, Nodame even admits to playing up the Boke and Tsukkomi Routine simply because Chiaki's such a perfectStraight Man. Chiaki, needless to say, is not amused by this revelation.
