At a top music academy in Japan, Shinichi Chiaki's arrogance is matched only by his top-notch piano playing. But when Chiaki and the teacher get into a fight, he's demoted to the reject class. Chiaki is left to pursue his dream of being a composer while surrounded by a bunch of loser musicians and one annoying girl, Noda Megumi, who has proclaimed herself Chiaki's girlfriend. Nodame (Noda Megumi) is a clueless, dirty girl who doesn't know how to cook, clean, or even has a sense of value. What she has is the ability to replay a song after she has heard it. She latches onto Chiaki and together they might be able to help each other overcome their own personal problems.
Based on the awarded shoujo manga by Tomoko Ninomiya.

11 TV Episodes (45min each).

The story of Shinichi Chiaki and his not-girlfriend, Nodame is a musical drama, with good elements of comedy and romance. While the (JC Staff) animed series is very good, IMHO, the live action series is actually better and they have just released two more (Live-action, 2-hour) movies that continues their story in Europe.

Even if you have seen the animated series, the story told in the live-action series is different enough to be interesting and entertaining. Here are some images.
