Hello, people. I haven’t posted a thing for about half a year.
And I am not here to talk about scanlation. I am done with that stuff. I want to talk about anime adaptation of Piano no Mori.
It’s a manga series which I’ve been following since year 2000 and having realized that there have been an anime adaptation only recently, I downloaded the two seasons (total 24 episodes) and watched it.
Not sure how I’d rate it. But it wasn’t good. Piano no Mori as manga was an excellent series. Personally, I’ve never felt that Piano no Mori was a good series for anime because it deals with a highly subjective subject: music.
And I felt that, if it were to be made into anime, the music part should largely be ignored and instead focus on Kai’s relationships and his ordeals.
The anime chose to focus on music instead and I think that’s why I didn’t like it because I have absolutely no idea how to grade classical piano.
Very large part of the anime talks about how the music is wonderful and whatnot and there I was, twisting my head thinking what in the world they were talking about…
It simply did not connect.
