8: Animation quality. Our protagonist encounters a really hot chick who's totally digging him, which means there's only one logical course of action: She's gonna date his fucking best friend. Kousei falls for Kaori, but she decides not to tell him of her obviously imminent death and instead hands him off to childhood friend 1, Tsundere-chan, who likes him. Well, here we are, the end of an anime I both looked forward to and dreaded. Writing such a contrasted character duality into a story is an enormously difficult feat, but the authors pull it off here with fantastic success – it allows for an incredibly authentic side of Kousei to be displayed that all young boys struggle with on their path to adulthood. I feel so sorry for her. A more grave offense is that Your Lie in April completely lacks any subtlety--or at least, any subtlety it shows is completely undercut by one of the characters being a jackass and overexplaining the subtle bits. Multiple sizes available for all screen sizes. Between these songs are a host of classical music pieces, each played with subtle differences that audibly capture the intended feel of the dialogue.

It was very well done and was definitely a pleasure listening to the pieces they played. ===========================================================. Several other characters play similar parts in the drama, acting as subtle pushes to keep the pace of the show moving forward with intent. A lot of the show is still shots actually. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. Kaori is kind – no but. She is plenty of fun and complements Kousei well, but is average beyond this and not the reason to watch Your Lie in April. Overall Quality – High. Finale climax isn’t as strong as the mid-point. Sound: So this is supposed to be a music anime but unlike actual music anime like Kids on the slope or Nodame Cantabile the actual music is really shitty. And the violin didn't even fit in well. Because she's hot. The harmonization of the ideal with the real is a tragic and painful road for Kousei to walk, as it inevitably is for all men, but the journey teaches him to master his pain and step forward toward the future. The motion can be pretty rough and there are obvious attempts to save on budget by cutting to crudely-drawn chibi "humor" every time anything remotely interesting happens so that they don't have to animate another five seconds of tears running down someone's face. Like A Silent Voice, Your Lie In April tackles mental illness by including a secondary character who helps the wounded main character recover. I could elaborate for each primary cast member, but the point is made. This is just the tip of the iceberg tho, and I believe it shows a very ugly side of classical music (I've known people with similar stories) after every flashback of Arima's childhood.

The spectre of his mother leering over his shoulder during a performance conveys all we need to know in a single image. -actual footage from final episode, timestamp 20:09. Your Lie in April shows its strengths within minutes. Along comes Kaori, his opposite, a violinist with energy, colour, and humour he has never had.

Aside from that we have a 30 year old milf or whatever who's introduced a bit later in the anime. Your Lie in April is a great anime, worth it for the protagonist alone. Despite being a few years past this stage in my life myself, it still roused a fair amount of reflection of my own experiences, and also managed to touch on the adult and parental perspectives which are far more relatable to me today.
