Avengers Endgame was NOTHING compared to this movie
3 November 2019 | by alexfrey-75147See all my reviews

Avengers Endgame I think is just too much Hype because it's just standard Marvel Movies. also standard Holywood movies which lately get me so bored, since it's boring formula... You Lie in April is very Excellent movies, so different.. Very Good Story which makes Avengers Endgame really pale compared to this masterpiece... from superb music and storyline, very good acting performance... what a Wonderful storylne. Japan really did great!
