Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso episode 22

I knew it. The ending was so predictable. In fact, half of the story was so predictable that it renders my overall opinion of Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso quite low. Never mind the fact that they killed off the best character on the show. It being so predictable is by far the worst thing about this story.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 22 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.45_[2015.03.20_23.45.08]So yeah, I supposed I hit the mark spot-on when I said that Kaori would probably die during that operation and during Kousei’s performance. Anyone could’ve seen that one coming. But it’s not just that. Its other parts of the story that were simply too predictable. Nevertheless, I think that Kaori’s condition throughout the show, probably a way to crank up the drama, was the biggest problem due to everything around it being so incredibly predictable that the rest of the story, as interesting as it was at times, became less and less amusing.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 22 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.41_[2015.03.20_23.45.31]Still, I must admit that I really liked that letter. That might’ve been the best thing that happened for the past few months to be very honest. It shows that Kaori loved Kousei all along, and that she only used that soccer freak to get close to him. I mean, it was quite obvious that she and Kousei were a much better match.

Soccer boy and Baseball girl are a good match. Not Kousei and soccer girl or soccer boy and Kaori. But that was obvious since episode one. It’s still just a damn shame that they had to kill Kaori, but at least it was a beautiful story in general. Not to mention the incredible artwork. Kudos.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso episode 21

I knew it. They are going to save Kaori’s death for the very last episode. This episode has been so uninteresting because all you could really think about what Kaori’s condition. Sure, Kousei has just started playing again, but that’s not what’s on my mind.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 21 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.01_[2015.03.13_23.21.32]I think it’s great that Kousei isn’t giving up. He is going to continue playing the piano and any and all insecurities have been overcome thanks to Kaori. I think it’s wonderful, definitely, but I could not help but think about the next episode and how Kaori will die. In fact, I am almost completely certain that she’s going to die during Kousei’s performance next week. These things are so cliché and predictable that I’m probably going to be bored to death by it. They always mix good things with bad things in order to pump up the drama a bit. Koari is going to die and at this point I can only hope that she’s going to go peacefully without any pain during surgery.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso episode 20

Yeah, it is going to happen. Kaori is going to die. Probably not next week, but she is definitely going to die soon. Things are going downhill really fast. My favourite character is going to die for sure and my other favourite character might go nuts because of it.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 20 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.17_[2015.03.06_23.59.43]The episode started off quite innocently. A few more scenes about their childhood and back to the world of music again. This was all quite normal when it comes to Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso. The worst part is that everything still seems rather normal. But that’s about to change right now as everyone already expects.

I know that Kaori hasn’t had that surgery yet. This tells me that she’s not going to die next week, at least. I have seen plenty of this show to know that they are going to wait until a certain moment where everything seems to be going good and then she’ll die. That’s how they always do it. They connect the good things to the bad. Probably the very last episode.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso episode 19

Thank you, Japan. You officially killed Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso for me. The single most loved character on the show is about to kick the bucket in order to make things more dramatic? What a stupid idea if you ask me.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 19 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.41_[2015.02.27_23.27.55]I don’t know how much longer Kaori-chan will live. This could be my second last post because she might die next week. I still don’t know what’s wrong with her, only that she agreed to have surgery so that she may live a little longer. I can only imagine that it’s a brain tumour or some other type of cancer that’s surging through her body.

Anyway, I listen to a bit of music at the end and it was quite nice, but I just couldn’t shake the thought of Kaori dying soon. I simply can no longer enjoy the story as much as I did at first. Kousei is making such remarkable progress and I can’t sit here and enjoy fully because I know that my favourite character is about to die a horrible death.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso episode 18

Watching Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso is really scary. My most favourite character on the show may or may not die and other characters are making fun all over the place. It’s a bit hard to watch at times, I won’t lie about that one.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 18 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.13_[2015.02.20_23.41.15]Kousei played a nice piece together with Nagi. It surprised me to see him in control. Not only was he in control of his music, but he also decided to test Nagi during the performance by changing the pace a little. Did she falter? Absolutely not. She kept up and she stayed in control throughout the performance, for which she received a great applause.

It’s funny how much influence Kousei’s name has. People know him just by his name because of how he used to play. I wonder if he could use that kind of fame to his advantage. He could use it to get into top-class schools or find himself a top-class mentor that will help him become the world-class pianist that he is destined to be.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso episode 17

It may still be too early to say this, but it really does look like Kaori is going to die. They are focusing so much on it that there is very little change that she is going to survive. She either dies or loses the ability to play the violin.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.41_[2015.02.13_23.25.10]My motivation to continue writing joyful Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso posts is almost all gone now that Kaori keeps doing worse and worse. They are focusing so much on her and her situation and about how she wants people to remember her, that the outcome is looking worse and worse. Something bad is coming and I am expecting the worst.

Kousei? He is continuing. He is still playing and he is still motivating others to play as well. This is probably because Kaori is still with us, even though he, too, probably knows that something awful is about to happen soon. The worst part is that we still don’t know what’s wrong with Kaori after all these weeks.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso episode 16

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso is getting worse and worse. I fear that the worst is about to happen. And I still stand by what I said; if Kaori dies then I am dropping the story. She, to me, is the face of Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso. She is arguably one of the best-looking characters I’ve ever seen.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.26_[2015.02.07_23.43.07]What shocked me is not that she’s still ill or that it looks like it is getting worse. What shocked me most is that she’s starting to resemble Kousei’s mother when she was ill. She was shouting at Kousei because she thought that he wasn’t working hard enough. That just led me to assume that her time is nearly up as well…

We are getting a lot of hints. Whether those hints are reliable or not are two different things, but I do not like where this is going. Kousei has just entered the world of music again. He cannot deal with this right now. He cannot lose Kaori at this point. It would absolutely destroy the guy. He would probably stop playing again for good.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso episode 15

What the hell, Japan!? I already have too little time to write big reviews, which gives me even more reason to keep this post short. It is okay to keep viewers waiting to build up some tension, but don’t do that when the outcome can only be bad.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 15 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.03_[2015.02.01_23.40.43]It just continues to piss me off that Kaori is still ill. In fact, it seems like it is getting worse. She is losing the ability to move her body freely and she keeps losing consciousness. This is bad and it will probably end badly no matter how you look at the situation. I hate it when I am kept waiting to see how this will end.

I stand by what I said in previous posts; I will stop watching if Kaori ends up dying. I don’t care about Kousei finally leaving home to pursue his destiny, which is to become a world-class pianist. It’s sad that his friends hate to see him leave and that they are feeling terrible about it, but that is not important when the cutest character on the show may or may not die soon.
