Your Lie in April, the show being released back in 2016, is a story about a high school boy named Kousei Arima who had a passion for piano but later faded after the death of his mother. He then eventually meets a violinist named Kaori Miyazono who he later falls in love with. Ever since the death of his mother he grew afraid of ever touching the piano or competing in competitions. Kaori shows him that there’s nothing to be afraid of and helps Kousei get over his fear.

I personally enjoyed the anime itself. I thought it was beautiful, a bit relatable, and sentimental. I loved all the characters but I definitely believe that Tsubaki (Kousei’s best friend) deserved better than being the second option since it is a romance anime. Your Lie in April is something I enjoyed very much and would 10/10 recommend it to anyone who likes music or romance anime.
