They jammed a lot of the manga chapters together so more material can be covered in the 26(?) allotted episodes. You’d think it was the Nodame Variety Depression Special by the amount of times she got shut down by Chiaki, Stressman and Auclair sensei. Though dere-dere Chiaki was adorable as he fiddled over what gift to bring back for Nodame. Also, after looking back at the older chapters, I realized more than half the story has been in Paris now. Doesn’t feel like it!
Best of all next episode meaaaaans… (click for spoilers)
First kiss (however unpleasant it may be)!
