Description: Piano prodigy Kousei Arima dominated the competition and has become famous among child musicians.

He has resigned himself to living out his life with his good friends, Tsubaki and Watari, until, one day, a girl changes everything. Kaori Miyazono, a pretty, free-spirited violinist ... (more)

Your Lie in April

“Warning: Spoilers

Protagonist Kousei Arima is a piano playing progeny; as he grew up is mother pressured him to play every note perfectly. This led him to be dubbed the 'human metronome'.

Their styles are totally different; he plays every note exactly as it is written while she plays pieces as she wants to her deviations might not please competition judges but the audiences admire her passionate renditions. Over the course of the series Kousei must come to terms with his past as he accompanies Kaori then deal with her abs” read more

"Wow, where should i start to say why this is a masterpiece that anyone should see. The anime always tells you which month it is and it starts in april and the entire season i was like: "april is over, so whats the lie that means in the title?" and at the moment i´m realized what it was and how this title ends flashed me so damn hard, im always hear the music of this show and think about it and the only reason it´s not in the top 10 is the a bit boring part in the middle of the season, but it´"

"I settled on putting this on the list for a reason I will explain shortly. While it has passable drama and decent humor, it can get pretty corny, especially the dub ("bag of hamburgers", anyone?). Now the reason it's on this list (besides that dub) is because of what people are saying about Kousei's treatment. His backstory involves his dying mother pushing him to be a piano prodigy to the point of beating him, while two potential love interests also hit him for comedic purposes. Yeah, pretty me"
