Anybody know where or who has the manga volume translations from vol 10 onwards? ...in English..hehe! I cannot wait for the delrey translated versions coz they will take forever to trans til vol 17.
Hey, I just saw the thread of Nodame. I was recommended this series quite some time ago by a japanese friend of mine. I love music so this one came up. I'm really glad she recommended cause i'm loving it. Unfortunately nobody seems to be up to scanlating this one further than chapter 19. Fortunately they've decided to the the anime and they did the dorama.
Judging by how popular the series is in Japan maybe with a little bit of publicity we could make this series better known... Not to say the plot and the humor is so great.
Ah baboysai, seems like we meet when it's related to music and good manga, eh?
