YMMV: Nodame Cantabile
  • Ass Pull: The resolution of Rui's storyline in the anime. Trust me, you're better off knowing.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" will never be the same again.
    • 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...
  • Ear Worm: "Allegro Cantabile". The Opening Theme is that awesome!
  • Ho Yay: One-sided from Okuyama towards Chiaki.
    • Mine always seems awfully happy when Chiaki is around, he is also very concerned with getting his "radar".
    • Also the violinist who takes Kiyora's place as the concertmaster showed some signs, staring intently as Chiaki was unbuttoning his shirt and following Chiaki around.
  • Les Yay: Nodame and Saiko have an... interesting encounter in a karaoke-bar. It's rather short-lived though, since Nodame is very drunk and Saiko clearly not interested.
  • Narm: In the live-action version, the scenes where Chiaki flashes back to his childhood traumas can be extremely narmy due to the low production values involved.
