Hmm.. Looks like I need to watch this because of the yaoi implications because everyone is saying such good things about it :up:

I've never watched Nana, but from what I've heard, this anime is probably the male counterpart to that. Friendship + music = awesome show!

You had me a yaoi. :rofl:

Haha, I watched the first two episodes. This is something that I think I'm really going to enjoy immensely. I love the music, the art style is something unique distintive, and Sentaro reminds me a ridiculous amount of someone that I know in real life. XD

This show is pretty freakin' awesome. Just got caught up and so far it's my favorite this season.

YESSSSSSSSSSS, SO MUCH YES.
Holy crap, every second of this episode was amazing as hell. #1 anime of the year, most definitely.

I didn't like the art so i dropped it from my watching list but then decided to give it a try..i start yesterday watching from the first episode n didn't went to sleep before i reached episode 9 n i'm dying for 10 to come XD
it was the best music show i ever watched i started to like jazz too just when they start to "play around" i feel like my body is moving with the rhythm n after they finish i go like "BRAVOOOOOOO n clapps" <<my bros tho i'm crazy xD
BUT REALLY THIS NEED TO HAVE MORE VIEWS :D n it's sooooo unfair for it to have 13 episode :'( that's not fair at all
Try and fail, but don't fail to try

Also, THAT END. :|

i followed it as it aired for the first few episodes (i'm waiting for it to finish), i would've continued watching it on a weekly basis but it was already in the process of derailing into a love square. anyway, there were definitely some homosexual undertones. :uhoh: nonetheless it's still pretty good for what it's turning out to be, but not what i was expecting/hoping for.

He did say undertones, not actual homosexuality. But still, they weren't even supposed to be undertones, it was just the author... "failing" (can't find a better word) at portraying a same-sex friendship between males without it looking/hinting that way. At least, this is because the author is a girl, so to a male it does seem more odd than perhaps it does to a female.

that's definitely not what i said. :sweat: i mean i don't really care, i was joking, but if the undertones didn't exist then they wouldn't be apparent to anyone (and i'm not the only one that has noticed). it's just the way sentarou and kaoru communicate with each other, their mannerisms, facial expressions, even the character designs. it obviously wasn't intended, but it is a josei so i was kind of expecting the relationship to be slightly warped, as mirkosp said - and i enjoy the anime regardless.

oooh sorry if i got you wrong :)...it's just i saw soo many people who didn't watch it because they thought it's yaoi :( ... it's an amazing anime really they can't ruin it with making shounen ai moments and as "Mirkosp" said " it was just the author... "failing" (can't find a better word) at portraying a same-sex friendship between males without it looking/hinting that way."
but i still can't see the shounen ai hints xD maybe i'm slow don't know haha
but I'm glade you're enjoying it and hope u enjoy it as much as i do ^____________^ <<here we go fan girl mood xD gomen ^^"
