Many people do not like Nodame Cantabile artwork because it’s a bit different than what you find in most shoujo manga. No large splashes of flower or intense screen tones, Incredibly simplistic characters. And Ninomiya Tomoko seems to enjoy keeping the panels relatively free of clutter and background distractions. But somehow the artwork are going really well with the story. It can express the right emotion amazingly. I really hope I could have this full color illustrations book on my bookshelf.
