Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso episode 07
What is with this pace? I have taken notice of the fact that the pace has been getting slower and slower as weeks go by. We are fully aware of Kousei’s problems. There is no need to dedicate half of every episode to show us how bad it is.
It’s always something new. Always something that makes his childhood seem just a little bit worse, even though it doesn’t have to be. He lost his mother and apparently his cat, too. Yeah, that sucks, but there is no need to focus on that for so long. He is a talented pianist that needed a little push forward. He got that much-needed push from Kaori and his two childhood friends and is now taking baby steps back into the musical world. Just let him do his thing without bringing up every single one of his bad experiences, and don’t focus so much on it if you do.
Sorry for that annoying rant, but it had to be said if you ask me. There is no doubt in my mind that Kousei will lose this competition. Yes, he has talent, determination and passion in him, but is that enough for him to win this competition after being absent for so long. I really don’t think he will win after everything I’ve seen so far.
There is one thing that I do not understand. Why are people so angry and jealous of Kousei? Is Kaori right? Is it really because he used to play pieces exactly as they were meant to play like he was some kind of, and I quote; “marionette”? I thought that was the whole point… I certainly wouldn’t like it if people changed the music that I created in order to make it “their own”. Oh well… We’ll just have to wait and see how Kousei will deal with this.
