Manga Recommendation: Alice the 101st

I went to the bookstore (finally) the other day and I was only allowed to get one book (not enough!!!!) I got a book that I have never seen or read before. I picked up this book knowing that it would be awesome!!! I can just tell by the cover.....I love reading manga about music!

Title: Alice the 101st, 101人目のアリス
Author: Chigusa Kawai
Genres: Comedy, Romance, School Life
Reading Direction: Right to Left
Age Rating: 16+ Older Teen (Doesn't really seem like it, there is nothing wrong with it! It just said on the back of the book)
Status: Ongoing

Summary: Only 100 students each year are submitted in the Mondonveille School of Music. However 101 students made it and that 101st student is Aristide Lang (his name does sound like Alice!). He made in but he has no idea how to read sheet music! He doesn't even know the basics......

The whole school is in a uproar when they hear about Alice. But what happens when they hear his magnificent performance?

I really enjoyed this manga! I want the second volume........anyways! I love the art and story! I love the comedy!!! Its so great! I praise the mangaka for researching music awesomely! The mangaka did a great job!! I feel like I learned several things from this manga. But the mangaka wasn't able to capture something very important, in real life Talent is not the only thing that we need to succeed. Practicing is another component in succeeding in whatever we do.

Since I have a love for reading manga's with Music in are some (or just one) others you should try!
