Thrilling and exquisite plot!
26 April 2016 | by limkaiyingSee all my reviews

'Your Lie In April' has got to be one of the most emotional anime out there regardless to anyone who watches it. It portrays the true meaning of music which if questioned, real music is and still to this day and era, Classical Music. It brings unexpected emotion and feelings into Classical Music and teaches its audience the beauty of it. Moreover, the plot was very well written. It is true that the anime focus a lot on the quote 'Music speaks louder than words' telling its audience that certain things simply cannot be expressed with simple words. The character development is extremely well rehearsed too. The producer simply do not just focus on Kousei and Kaori's personal problems but other characters too. The producer also try to make this anime as realistic as possible showing its audience the reality of life as it is now and how we shouldn't always make excuses to give up. I would more than be happy to give this anime a 10/10 however the ending was not up to everyone's approval. However it is precisely because of the ending that makes this anime so beautiful. After all nothing in life is perfect. So a 9/10 is perfect for Shigatsu Wa Kimi No Uso.
