Having been given the opportunity to study at Paris, Nodame accompanies Chiaki to Europe. As he strives towards his dream of becoming an accomplished conductor, she dedicates herself to become a professional piano player. Although they are moving swiftly towards their professional goals, this seems to be pulling them further apart in their relationship.
Like its prequel, Nodame Cantabile: Paris was animated by J.C. Staff and stars seiyuu Kawasumi Ayako as Nodame and Seki Tomokazu as Chiaki. The second season comprises 11 episodes that originally aired between October and December 2008 in Japan. From all promo indications, Animax expects to follow-up Nodame Cantabile: Paris with the third Nodame Cantabile: Finale anime, likely in the same timeslot.
Nodame Cantabile: Paris opening and ending themes are Sky High by The Gospellers and 東京 et 巴里 (Tokyo and Paris) by Emiri Miyamoto x solita.
Ninomiya Tomoko's Nodame Cantabile manga first serialized in the josei mangazine Kiss and was eventually compiled in 25 tankoubon (including the two Nodame Cantabile - Opera Hen volumes) by December 2010. Elex Media publishes Nodame Cantabile in Indonesia, and it's got one more volume to go. Meanwhile, Tong Li Taiwan concluded its traditional Chinese 交響情人夢 publication run last January. Del Rey published 16 English Nodame Cantabile volumes per July 2009. Pika Édition's French Tome 13 streets this 24 August.
