Day 138/365

Chiaki Shinichi

From the anime Nodame Cantabile, Chiaki Shinichi is 21 years old from a wealthy family and a 3rd-year piano student at Momogaoka Music Academy. Later on he goes to Paris to be a conductor and further his music career following the energetic Noda (Nodame) Megumi, whom he has romantic feelings for even if it's hard to see.

Why I like him: I love a man that can cook! He'll always does it for Nodame and I think that's sweet of him. I like how determined he is in his musical goals. It's overpowering at times but you know right away where his heart lies. The relationship between him and Nodame really makes me think of my own current relationship, for better or for worse.

Why I hate him: Too critical about everything. I don't understand how he can fail so much at relationships but be pretty much awesome at everything else. His cold shoulder drove me bonkers when it came to tender moments between he and Nodame.

Overall: GYABO!

Nodame frequently goes over to Chiaki's house to eat and demand strange things. XD

    This reminded me to get Nodame Cantabile off my stalled list a.s.a.p. In the bit I’ve seen so far, Chiaki has been pretty awesome for being such a prick all the time XD

    Will probably hold off starting Paris for a while though, haven’t heard much goodness about it.

    He fails in his relationships ’cause even if he thinks “I’m so smart and incredible”, he has no common sense at all. What a close-minded! Life’s small things has to be as he says… But it makes him an amazing character as well *^*
