Shonen Note (The Boy’s Note)

KAMATANI Yuhki [Japan]


A boy communicates with the world through music… Yutaka, a boy soprano with an angelic voice, who is sensitive and perceptive and cries easily, decides to become a member of the choir when he enters junior high-school. This work portrays the harmony of the passing days of life at school, in which boys and girls share both their joys and conflicts.
