After winning the Platini International Music Competition, Chiaki (Hiroshi Tamaki) is appointed the permanent conductor of the Roux-Marlet Orchestra. He decides to do some covert scouting before taking over and he’s shocked by their lack of motivation. On the other hand, Nodame, Frank (Eiji Wentz), Tanya (Becky) and Kuroki (Seiji Fukushi) practice hard every day at the Paris Conservatoire in preparation for final exams. Because of this, Chiaki calls on Nodame (Juri Ueno) to stand in for some performances. As Nodame’s delusions begin to spread, Rui Son takes over an important role at the Conservatoire through an unexpected coincidence.
