Whether you're a musician yourself or just someone who loves a great song, there's something worthwhile for you in the wonderful world of manga about music. 

Music manga is a genre in its own right, but it blends well with other genres like romance, slice of life, and more. Your Lie in April tells the painful story of a young classical pianist who lost his ability to hear music after his mother's passing. He gains it back through a seemingly wonderful friendship with a violinist...but she's also hiding a devastating secret. Meanwhile, K-On! focuses on the adventures of a high school music club, and Detroit Metal City follows the hilarious adventures of a young man who just wants to sing about happy things, but his talents lie in a far more aggressive genre. 

There's a ton of amazing musical manga to choose from. Help out your fellow readers choose their new favorite music manga by voting up the best ones.
