Your lie in April

Feb 8, 2016

The story was predictable.

The characters weren't incredibly original.

The themes have been explored in other anime, especially recent ones.

The love triangle was forced.

The main love interest, waifu-baiting aside, seems like an arbitrary choice right up to the very end of the series.

With all this said, it didn't really matter. I don't think Your Lie in April set out to do anything new, but like Star Wars, or Harry Potter, or any of the phenomenon that deserve a place in the history of the medium they are a part of, this anime was meant to take a story we were all...
