|Synopsis: Arima Kousei is a former piano prodigy who lost his ability to play as the result of a nervous breakdown after his mother passed away.

This meeting sets the stage for Kousei’s return to the world of music.|
There’s been a whole slew of some rather excellent romance series this year so far, and this particular one looks like it’s going to add itself to the list. While it’s not one of my must watch series, the colourful backgrounds and attractive character designs appeal enough to me to tempt me to at least take a look when it starts airing.
Given that his one childhood friend is a girl though, I’m sure we can expect some love-triangle problems to crop up at some point in the series.
