Summary by mel
Chiaki Shinichi is one of the top students of Momogaoka College of Music who has secret dreams of becoming a conductor in Vienna, just like his first teacher back in Prague. Coming from a good lineage of musicians, it should be easy to achieve such dreams. However, such a dream is impossible for him to achieve because of his childhood trauma for riding airplanes and of the ocean.
Noda “Nodame” Megumi is the top eccentric student of the Piano department at Momogaoka College of Music. Her messiness and eccentric behavior has gained notoriety all throughout school, hiding the fact that she is a very talented pianist. She can play music by ears, even those which she has only heard for the first time. Her dream is to become a music teacher at a kindergarten.
On an unexpected twist of fate, Nodame met Chiaki outside of her apartment. It seems that the two music students have been a long-time neighbor already. It wasn't long after that Nodame fell in love with the man. On the other hand, Chiaki took a while before appreciating the qualities that Nodame has.
When Chiaki heard that Nodame does not want to compete with the piano but instead wants to become a music teacher, he was appalled. The talent Nodame has is world-class, something that anyone can envy. This was the start of Chiaki's attempts to get Nodame to compete. Nodame, on the other hand, is attempting to cure Chiaki of his phobia in order to let the man she loves achieve his dreams even if that means that the latter will go somewhere far away.
