Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every few years, the prestigious Seisho Academy holds a prominent musical competition, and only the very best students at the Academy are allowed to participate. Though all are eligible to apply, only students from the music department actually make it to the competition...until now.

Kahoko is a normal student in the general education department with absolutely no musical skill, but all that changes when she catches a glimpse of an elusive fairy who lives on campus. The fairy grants Kahoko a magic violin, and before she knows it, she's nominated to participate in the school's music competition with five very attractive boys. Will she win love and fame, or will bitter rivalry rule the day?

Review:

"Kahoko Hino is an ordinary student at Seiso Academy until she encounters Lili, a spunky fairy who just happens to be on the same musical wavelength. Now Hino is in possession of a magical violin and competing in the prestigious Seiso Academy musical contest. Kure has created a world that is as delicate, and complicated, as a house of cards. Seiso Academy is segregated between the music students and the general education students, and the entire student body seems to accept music students as superior. Hino initially struggles with both her lack of musical ability and the cold treatment she receives from some other students. Yet her love of music and the emotional connection she has with her violin slowly begins to assert themselves. As Hino begins to come into her own, she catches the eye of five male students, four of whom are fellow contestants — more than just the competition will be in play as this story unravels. The musical element is a veritable love interest for the students and Kure's skillful character designs and chic artwork create endearing character that enhance this lyrical romance."
