PIANO: THE MELODY OF A YOUNG GIRL'S HEART On DVD
Anime producer and distributor Right Stuf and Nozomi Ent. have released all three volumes of PIANO: THE MELODY OF A YOUNG GIRL'S HEART at a new, lower price of $9.99 per volume on June 24, 2008.
The series, a favorite of librarians, features direction by Norihiko Sudo (COMIC PARTY, TO HEART 2), character designs by Kosuke Fujishima (creator, OH MY GODDESS! and YOU'RE UNDER ARREST) and art direction by Junichi Higashi (MIDORI DAYS, SUPER GALS!).
Miu Nomura once loved to play the piano. As a little girl, the music made her heart soar, and she eagerly shared her songs with all of those around her. Now an introverted teenager, Miu has become too shy to express her feelings -- even through her music. Her playing has suffered, and her piano teacher, the moody Mr. Shirakawa, has become impatient with her inability to reach the next level. When Miu develops a crush on upperclassman Takahashi, her best friend Yuuki is the first to notice. Unfortunately, Yuuki's too distracted with her own emotional troubles: She's fallen hard for third-year track star Takizawa! However, Mr. Shirakawa has also noticed something, a sudden and remarkable change in Miu's playing. Can he help her rediscover the joy of the piano and find the courage to share her heart and music once more? Contains episodes 1-3.
