    yeah, it's not like some shounen sports manga or something. The way it's written is the key here.

    you will find the later chapters a bit draggy... i recall almost an entire volume was him playing with people in awe...

    As long as we don't lose any staff, we will keep scanlating it. ;-)
    If we do however, I'm not sure how much energy I'd have left to look for new people.

    I'm sure Piano no Mori could be draggy for people that are reading the Japanese releases, since it's a bit irregular in serialization (much like our own scanlations...*cough*); but we'll only know for sure when we get there. I know at least my translator hasn't gotten bored of it yet or anything.

    The first two volumes haven't dragged. So far it has a really nice pace, a really absorbing story. So far Ajino is my favorite character.

    shouryuujo, I didn't feel the drag maybe because I read all 9 volumes in one go...

    One thing that actually helps me read this series is that while I read the chapters I listen to the score they play. And then I can imagine it more.
    I got through this one pretty quickly as well (though not in one go like you did ). It's definitely the type of manga that is really easy to read and get absorbed in. I took your advice and listened to some of the scores they mentioned while reading and it really did enhance the experience. Like, for example, when Kai was playing Lizst's La Campanella and Syuhei talked about hearing the sound of bells, listening to it myself at the same time allowed me to step into his shoes a bit more easily (especially listening to that version I linked to ).

    has chinese scans (minus vol 18) if anyone interested
    here's some recap from ~10+ ... emphasize mostly on the competition not many of the side stuff...

    I <3 Piano no Mori so much. Patiently waiting for translation, patiently waiting, paitently. However, while I'm not clourophobic, I don't ever want to see Kai in a clown outfit ever again.

    one thing about the theme of the manga is shuhei being the "underdog" to Kei and his dad being "inferior" to ajino.Normally people like the underdogs but to think Kei being "beaten" after all that hardship is inconceivable right?
