Violinist of Hameln (ハーメルンのバイオリン弾き) is a fantasy adventure manga created by Michiaki Watanabe. Its premise is that a group of adventurers are traveling north to the Northern Capital (a.k.a. Hameln) to prevent a catastrophe. In this world, music has magical qualities. The manga and the anime are very different. The anime has a darker tone, whereas the manga, at least initially, tends toward a lighter, more comedic tone.
Trouble arises in Staccato one day. Demons show up and start to wreak havoc on the townspeople. The entire country seems to be suffering. The source of the problem is that the “barrier” which until now has kept the demons from crossing over to the human world, is weakening. The person who sustains it is losing her strength after holding it up for so many years. That person is Queen Horn of Sforzando. Hell King Bass is trying to break through the barrier and release their “supreme leader,” Kestra (Orchestra). One whose power is unparalleled yet is trapped somewhere in the world of the humans.
