Average Rating

Music accompanies the path of the human metronome, the prodigious pianist Kousei Arima. But after the passing of his mother, Saki Arima, Kousei falls into a downward spiral, rendering him unable to hear the sound of his own piano. Two years later, Kousei still avoids the piano, leaving behind his admirers and rivals, and lives a colorless life alongside his friends Tsubaki Sawabe and Ryouta Watari. However, everything changes when he meets a beautiful violinist, Kaori Miyazono, who stirs up his world and sets him on a journey to face music again. Based on the manga series of the same name, Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso approaches the story of Kousei's recovery as he discovers that music is more than playing each note perfectly, and a single melody can bring in the fresh spring air of April.

The feels is too much. The animation, the art, the music, the characters are all really well done. My god. 10/10 recommended.


Want to cry? Actually don’t answer, because you will anyways. Oh and the OST is so good, you will be playing it as you go to bed for a week.


Watch a dude play the piano for half an episode while he gets PTSD.


This show touches on first loves and heart break, loss and depth of pain from the loss of your loved ones. so worth the watch.




An orchestral piece, with a melancholy melody, masterfully harmonizing sound, art, and theme into a beautiful, yet sad song to the very end.


You either love it so much, or hate it so much, I fall on the love side



    Anime was a mistake


    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
