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.
I can’t remember the last time a series or film moved me so emotionally that by the end of the show I was crying so hard that my body was shaking. The story is predictable but the amount of character depth that this series has, you genuinely feel their emotions, their joys & heartbreaks. The dialogues are poetic gems & Kousei & Kaoris’ conversations is the heart of the series. Its exceptionally directed & the visuals and musical performances add so much to the story. Its a Masterpiece of Human Relations Storytelling.
