Nodame Cantabile, Vol. 8 - Tomoko Ninomiya Nodame is such a talented pianist. When she really is into it, nothing can stop her. She practices and practices until she masters it.

What I like about this manga so much is that makes other people get into classical/piano music. When Nodame plays Schubert Piano Sonata No.16 D.845-1, I listened to it online. And it surprised me to read the comments. Most of them were from people who liked the song because of Nodame. Or people who were never interested in this kind of music until they watched/read Nodame.

In the competition she also plays Debussy's Isle of Joy. Great piece, looks so hard and fast to play.

Next volume: the final at the competition. She HAS to win.
