In loyalty to what seems to be a Neko Punch tradition, we proudly present the next series of clips we're working out for your enjoyment. We present Nodame Cantabile, a zany love story about the prolific, but arrogant conducting student Shinichi Chiaki and the eccentric yet brilliant pianist Megumi "Nodame" Noda. Full of hilarious moments and sweet sentimentality, this is an excellent series that has recently started its second season on the Noitamina block. Fueled with excitement for new adventures for our favorite "couple," Rashinban and I are really pleased to get this ball rolling.

Production Notes: This is actually Rashinban's first clip he has ever mixed, and I dunno about you, but I am super-impressed! A few more clips are in the works so please keep an eye out!
Personal Notes: Time to send a few critiques~
Chiaki/Rashinban: You already know that I looooove you to death for mixing these clips! You've made such a huge step in your abilities I feel, and this character is just fantastic for you! Beautiful performance, I fear I might resort to fangirl squealing any second now...
Nodame/Mippa: I feel a little uncertain about my performance in this clip, but after getting the go-ahead from two of the biggest Nodame fans I know (Rashinban and Tenken) I decided to let this clip go without my redoing the lines. ^^;;; But I still feel that I nailed the performance much better in the next clip, it was really hard to have Nodame sound ditzy in this rather serious clip.
Cab Driver/Nodame's Father/Tenken2007: Thank you so much for doing these lines for us! I promise it will pay off in future clips! Your father line really shone for me in this one--though your cabbie was good as well. Thank you! <3
