Recommends it for: Fellow humans in search for the long awaited romance that we've been waiting for in this series.
(Let me tell you a little story before we begin.)


And then I accidentally pressed the "Tab" button.

WARNING TO FELLOW REVIEW READERS: While writing a review, NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER press the tab button! Especially when you're almost finished with your super long and awesome review!

Because...when I pressed that (bleeeeeeep)ing button.......IT SENT ME BACK TO THE HOME PAGE!

I have been too generous with this series. A four star series it is not (as I have rated it in past volumes), or at least, not anymore. The artwork aside, which has been a consistent weakness though not a deal breaker in the series, the story is, simply put, floundering.

What was charming in the beginning - a girl with no talent in music suddenly thrust into the spotlight as a competitor in a school-wide music competition, her learning how to play the violin with supernatural aid, her feeling gui

I really quite love this series. After I read a volume, and maybe because it takes so long for the next one to come out and even longer for me to get it, I tend to forget just how much I like it. But then I get the next one, and I read it, and I remember how much I love the characters and the story. And, you guys, there’s only one volume left! And it’s possible that, according to Amazon, we’ll be waiting until May! … I just… I wanted to cry after I found that out.

Ahahaha wow, okay so apparently the theme of this volume was me freaking out over the series ending. Like I got to the end of Chapter 70 and it cut away to the side story and I was like ????? Oh god is it over? It can't be over! There isn't enough sense of resolution here! D: I calmed down as I read the side story and then I got to the postscript saying the next volume would be the last. ;_; But I'm not ready to let go!

I hope the story with the new kids will continue in its own series and get tr

Can't believe there's one more volume after this. This series has been really good. The anime too, though it ended too quickly Glad the manga continues with it and I wonder how its going to end. Love the artwork.
translation rating 2/5
Although I am still enjoying the series the translation of Viz series in general and La Corda's Measure 67 in particular are the main reason I still look at scanlations online. If North American publishers were truly serious about shutting down sites like mangafox and their ilk they would hire the scanlation groups who actually put out a higher quality product. And why do I think some scanlation groups put out a higher quality product? Quite simply, they love and enjoy the

2.5 stars

This volume seemed more like a filler with lots of pining in it. It kept on leading up to an event but nothing really happened until towards the end when it left off with a cliffhanger.

Another thing that bothered me was the fact that it ended so quickly! The last third of the book was two oneshots of a new spin-off series the author is currently working on. I liked the oneshots enough, but it was obvious that it wasn't what I was looking for when I picked up this volume.

One of my favorite things is a reverse harem type of series and this one did not disappoint. The correlation between each of the different boys and their musical instruments was excellent and I loved how music helped to progress the story line along. Hino was such a cute character!

Anime: One of my favorites! I loved all of the music!!!

I liked it very much. The only reasons I didn't give it 5 stars is because 1.) The guy didn't give Kahoko the gift he bought for her after her concert and 2.) he didn't confess his feelings to her. If things had been different, I totally would have given this book 5 stars.^_^
