Kay, sorry for the delay. Had to attend several parties and clean my room after exams. Here's episode 3!

Nodame says she wants to improve her piano when suddenly, who comes and hugs her from behind and grope her? Milch of course!
(aka Stresemann, lol)

Meanwhile, Elise forces Chiaki to sign her contract to her agency via tickle torture.

Chiaki returns to find Nodame "kidnapped" by Stresemann and goes off after him. Nodame looks pretty with the kimono, but minus the wig :P

Ah, it fell off...
Nodame hears about them leaving for a world tour for three months, poor Nodame ='[
"Please bring me back a ring as a souvenir."
Jumps to June and Nodame still fails at cooking lol, cept rice balls.

A new character is introduced, Yunlong, from China, also a piano student. He's voiced by Yuuji in Shakugan no Shana I think, and he's homesick.

Yunlong - Itadakimas
Also, must note how i LOVE Shizuka Itou's voice as Tanya :D
Frank arrives very, very depressed, hearing that he didn't get the piano instructor he wanted. Nodame, however, ends upgetting the sensei Frank wants. Professor Auclair, and so Frank yells, "Nodame no... bakaaaaa~!"
Nodame recieves a random call from Yuko [of all ppl -.-] and hears a
bout Chiaki taking over a concert from Stresemann who falls ill. She hears about the person he worked with, Son Rui, a piano prodigy from China. Chiaki shops with Rui and he thinks of getting Nodame a ring, but considers a necklace instead.

Son Rui
September comes in and it's time for school ^^ Nodame doesn't know at all and they end up almost missing the train.

Tanya the new Chiaki?
Nodame didn't even go to the orientation xD! She's so clueless lolol. There, she feels like she's surrounded by "Chiaki-senapis" HAHAHA. She meets her instructor, Auclair, who turns out to be one of the judges from when she played in the competition in S1. He somehow gives me the chills.... his constant blushing somewhat disturbs me >___<

Charles Auclair
Anyway, he asks her to play something she likes. She ends up playing a song she heard from Rui [Transcendetal Etude no.4, Mazeppa], but Aulair brushes it off and says "Zen Zen Dame~" LOL he didn't want her to show off her skill. "What did you come here for?" he asks.

Meanwhile, Chiaki bids Rui farewell [I don't like her mother], and he even admits that if Nodame had recieved the right nurturing, she would've turned out like Rui :D The question from Aulciar leave Nodame in shock as she doesn't know how to reply.
