I enjoy listening to the music they mention while I'm reading it as I get a better understanding of what the author is saying about a piece and to really immerse myself in the story.
I also love the idea that like an Otome game, the female lead has the opportunity to be with both the male leads in the next two books. The question is, which will be first? As much as I like Sou, I have to give my vote to Kou for the confession of a lifetime here.
On a final note: if it's been a year since you read the first volume and you have a terrible memory like me, I'd recommend going back and rereading the first book or at least the last part (as the size of it is a doozy) to refresh your memory. I wish I did because this volume picks up the story soon after with no recap and I couldn't remember the drama that went down between Mashiro and Sou, or much of the past history between the characters at all. I still enjoyed this a lot, I'll just have to marathon them all in a row once the series is complete : )
The music technicalities were a bit difficult for me since I’m no music major but it brought a touch of realism to the story. To be honest I disliked the aspect in the first novel but in this second one I really came to appreciate it. I believe it’s the way the author used metaphors in combination with those technical terms to really express what Mashiro is feeling and playing. It’s so hard to convey music with words but the author does it. Some scenes made me head over to YouTube so I could hear the sounds.
[Spoiler Alert] The interludes with Kou’s and Sou’s point of view really made this novel for me. The multiple perspectives dove straight into my head and heart and made me squeal a ridiculous amount. When Sou receives the cell phone strap in Germany literally made me squeal and roll around like a mad woman. The accompanying illustration just was the icing on the cake. His earnest expression paired with the authors words cinched it for me. I nearly died from the over load of feels.
The foreshadowing is a bit heavy in this novel and I can feel the next ones are going to get darker real fast. I want everyone to have a happy ending but I don’t think that it’s going to be possible. The author even states that in the afterward. I want everyone to get the ending they deserve.
There’s not much more about this novel I can say besides it’s a must read for anyone who is a fan of music, love and being reincarnated. I await with bated breath for the next novel. Personally as someone who loves Triads I want Mashiro to end up with both Kou and Sou. I just want a happy ending for everyone.
