[Anime] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso

A poignant story about an eccentric girl leading a buckled under pianist back to music that has a very strong start, starts moving in circles for a while in the middle (it would’ve probably done better as 13 episode show without those extra characters), and then ends with a damn nuclear bang.

Positive: Negative:
Attractive character designs The plot starts going around in circles when Kaori is absent for the most of the second half
Beautiful, effective background music There should have been more co-op performances with Kaori
Interesting, likable, relatively profound characters (especially Kaori) Romance doesn’t go as far as it could have
Tasteful, well-written romance Not the most groundbreaking or original of stories
Captivating plot, especially during the first half
A strong ending
