Yes I think this describes the situation perfectly.

I will also say that while Nodame sees Chiaki as interfering with her too much he wouldn't interfere unless he thought she was completely worth it (and I mean as a musician). He also sees the greatness in her that is why he would cancel his trip to Italy to work with her. So maybe he didn't go about it the right way but I still think Nodame's anger was misplaced here.

Yeah, I was really saddened that she got angry at him for that. Chiaki seemed to be trying his best, but Nodame didn't seem to understand this was his way of saying that he cared for her, and that he was sorry that he had to play the Ravel concerto with Rui instead of her.

Up to that point things seemed to be going well. I was enjoying the Chopin. Then NODAME is the one to push him away? Baka Nodame!

They "practiced piano". And by "practice piano", I mean "practice piano". Wouldn't be the first time Chiaki gets blue balled by her.

Real life, what do you know. Finally got around to watching Episode 6.

You know, I'm getting more and more surprised by this series every week. I'm actually starting to like it; this episode, once again, made me feel like I was watching the original series once again. The pacing is great, the focus on Chiaki and Nodame is nice, even the supporting characters are pulling their weight to some extent. It's actually getting quite good.

Very well stated. I adore any ChiakixNodame moments especially the kiss in this last episode that initiated by Chiaki something that i s very rare. But Iv found myself caring a lot about the supporting characters as well. Tanya has moved rather quickly on my scale in just 3 episodes. Her character is not only developing nicely and pulling the audience to sympathize with her, but we are also viewing her growth as musician and even though shes had some bumps her improvement is astonishing. She is learning more about herself and her music everyday and actually taking them to heart.

I for one am looking forward to her accompaniment with Kuroki.

@ Kirarakim nope your not being a fangirl i let a pretty loud AWWWWW followed by massive smiling after that kiss.

Episode 7: it really feels like this show is back on track, meaning that the music is at the core of everything. It brings people together, like everyone going in to see Chiaki and Rui perform. It articulates relationships and personalities. It also represents challenges and accomplishments.

You know, it kind of bugs me that RL is finally getting in the way of my anime habits. Must be the girlfriend I didn't have before, lol. Watched Episode 7.

Yes....the feel of Season 1 is definitely back. It still amuses me how Nodame takes such a wholly instinctive approach to her music, to the point where it can (and does) backfire on her. Like Joojoobees said, the music does seem to finally be back at the core of everything, the key strength of Season 1, and not even the compression of limited episodes seems to mute it anymore, at least in this episode. And best of all, Rui underlines just what kind of bond Chiaki and Nodame seems to have, quite nicely. All in all, it's a pretty good episode, even if we put it to the sky-high bar of Kasai's Nodame. I enjoyed it. ^_^

Although this episode, I finally have something of an insight, or not. Is it just me, or is Nodame's approach to her attachment to Chiaki kind of....superficial? I'm sure the heavy feelings she brought from her knowing about Rui taking up Chiaki's time to her 3rd Movement of Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 31 is supposed to symbolize her negative feelings about Chiaki's "betrayal", but it still comes across to me that she's still....playing around, not entirely serious. :\

EDIT: Okay, I do have a few complaints. Due to certain minor omissions,

Spoiler for manga:


but I guess that can't be helped either. This episode is pretty well-crafted on its own, after all.

I don't know, it seemed serious to me.

Thanks for pointing to that link, BTW. I thought this was really interesting:

I have to say that I was totally speechless after watching this one. I had no idea
it was going in this direction. I just know enough Japanese to go "no WAY!".

Speechless after this one. I can't imagine what's happening next.

Your synopsis is pretty much what I thought I heard and....yeah. I can't wait to hear others reactions too. And Chiaki!

And I also thought:
