Every few years Seisou Academy holds an in house music contest involving the best musically talented students. Kahoki is an average student in the General Education department with no musical inclination. But when Kahoki spies an elusive fairy on campus it grants her a magic violin. Now Kahoki has been placed in the competition and she has no idea what to do! A surprisingly enjoyable manga given that it is based on a video game. Kahoki is likeable and comes across as an average girl dealing with extraordinary circumstances. Secondary characters could use a bit more development, but that is likely to happen as the story progress. I look forward to the continued adventures of Kahoki and her magic violin. And for those out there waiting for the next volume, don¿t worry, the library has it on order!

Based on--get this--a romance video game, the La Corda d'Oro (The Golden String) manga series focuses on the romantic and social adventures of Kahoko Hino, a self-described "average" High School girl in modern-day Japan. Kahoko's life takes a turn for the strange when an annoying music fairy called a tata gives her a magic violin, propelling Kahoko into a prestigious music competition for which she has no training. Kahoko can only play the violin when she is passionately moved by the music, and unbeknownst to her, the tata is actually using the competition to pair off the competitors in romantic relationships. Oh, and everyone has green or blue hair.Sound ridiculous? I thought so too, but I guess I can see the appeal to younger teenage girls. Like them, Kahoko is just discovering the various potential applications of boys, but unlike the truly average 12-14 year old girl, she has the ability to choose between them. Despite her shy and humble demeanor, Kahoko seems to inspire strong emotions in every male she comes across--whether protective instincts from dark and brooding Tsuchiura, fierce competition from golden boy Len, or light-hearted support from emotional Kazuki. Even with "no particular hobbies or talents", Kahoko quickly assumes the role of the hero in this little psychodrama, defeating a squad of meangirls with her determination and purity of spirit. As manga series like this often number in the dozens or even hundreds of volumes, I see a series of angst-ridden love triangles in Kohoko's future. Maybe as the mythology of the series develops and the characters have time to grow, the premise won't seem quite so ridiculous. Even so, I have a hard time recommending this to a teen looking for anything but sugariest of pop confections.

After meeting a fairy, Hino is given a magic violin. She along with other students, are chosen to participate in a music competition. The drawings were good. Good introduction to the series.

In my opinion: (1-5) 5 being good, 1 being bad Art: 4+, It's better than most, but, well Plot: 4, sorta obvious what might happen, but, well, you know. Overall: 4, I will look forward to seeing more. This new series is based of a Japanese sim dating game. Kahoko, the main heroine, befriend an poorly dressed fairy thing and is told to join a music competion between six other guys. So you can guess since this was based off of a sim dating game she'll probably get hit on by all the bishoen, while in the meantime improving her skill on the voilin. If you want to get ahead of the manga I sugest watching the anime because it just started in October 1st.
