Has an interesting plot so far. There are a lot of innuendoes which I could do without. I feel like the Manga artist greatest weakness is drawing hands. I really like this book because I like music and the plot revolves around music.
Plot: I thought the description on the back sounded interesting, but as soon as Tena mentioned soul songs and tuners, she lost me. I'm not a huge fan of the Japanese style epic fantasy that involves this everlasting quest to collect all of the somethings.

Characters: The only character I kind of liked was Kyousuke. He was a nice guy. Everyone else is either annoying, mean or bossy. There's all of these girls who constantly take advantage of Kyousuke or beat him up and it bothered me.

Art: There

Eh, this is all right.
I don't like the whole "possible hook-up with gothic loli-chan" because that's not my thing but I really like how the plot is set around music. Makes me wish that I can hear the sounds.

I'm going to continue reading this since it's already on my list but I'm hoping that there isn't too much perviness with the main girly. It's a good plot that could get better but I won't be too overly joyed if it gets all sexy with her.

Even though it's got that mature rating.

Kyosuke, guru piano yang selamat dari kecelakaan mobil mendadak bisa melihat dan mendengar musik jiwa. Rupanya nada yang menyambung hidupnya itu adalah parasit yang berbahaya. Dia bertemu dengan Tena, penyetem musik jiwa yang bertugas membetulkan musik kehidupan yang melenceng dari seharusnya. Selain itu, kompetisi merebutkan nada parasit menyebabkan Kyosuke juga diincar oleh penyetem musik jiwa lain.

Shoujo manga yang ringan, tapi tak selalu klise (atau belum?).
Part of me really, really likes this. The characters are amusing, the manga is music-themed (and works despite the lack of audio), and the art is adorable and a little nostalgic (though I'm not sure why).

My only real complaint is the playing up of the "Loli Complex" jokes. These get out of hand pretty quick, in my opinion, and that's in any anime/manga, not just this one. There's also stealing of panties (seriously...? >_>).
