Piano no Mori
By: Isshiki Makoto
Genre: Drama, Slice of Life
Serialized In: Weekly Morning
A tranquil tale about two boys from very different upbringings. On one hand you have Kai, born as the son of a prostitute, who's been playing the abandoned piano in the forest near his home ever since he was young. And on the other you have Syuhei, practically breast-fed by the piano as the son of a family of prestigious pianists. Yet it is their common bond with the piano that eventually intertwines their paths in life.
Piano no Mori won a Grand Prize from 2008 [12th] Japan Media Arts Festival
i was taken aback when i saw at kefi.org (barbapapa work) that piano no mori was seinen. so far i completed vol.7 and to me it was shounen, regardless strong wordings and main character's background. so which one true?
~~ i really like Isshiki Makoto style for piano no mori, innocent look drawings to paint an unlikely story about a pianist life. and the point of view, whoala man, i fall in love immediately with this manga. a reco.
