Would you lie in order to get closer to the one you really love?
Would you rather choose being Friend A just to be with the one you love?
Would you rather accept the pain of being just a friend so as not to hurt your other friend?
Indeed, Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso is such a masterpiece. Sacrifices... Being considerate of each other's feelings... These are what this anime teaches about.
Frankly speaking, I intended to drop the series.
Its synopsis says that its about music and romance, and the bishie images of the men in La Corda d'Oro came flashing through my mind.
But ugh! When I saw the characters of Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso, they lack that oozing sexy appeal!
What kind of romance will await those characters that are a bunch of normal-looking children who do not really look like love items?
But I'm glad I didn't drop it.
Unrequited love... Ah, the feeling of youth. You hold your own feelings yet you can't stop showing it.
But what makes this anime more fantastic is its ending.
Though a tragic one, it gives you a feeling of satisfaction.
Even if Arima Kousei and Miyazono Kaori were separated because of Kaori's unfortunate death, we're glad to know that the feeling is mutual.
Nevertheless, it's still a sad ending.
For me, Kaori is the perfect match for Kousei instead of the barbaric and muscle-brained Sawabe Tsubaki.
