Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso episode 05
I don’t really get where they’re trying to go with this. We have been moving forward since the show started and now it seems as though we are taking a step back. Why? It was going so well… Why meddle with progress?
The episode starts off with a funny flashback scene and is followed up by a hospitalized Kaori. It would kind of suck if it turns out that she is quite sick and he like a few months to live. I know that sounds rather dramatic, but they do that. Do not be mistaken about that. Drama like that sells. They have told us nothing about her condition and didn’t even drop a clue, but they made it quite clear that her condition is quite serious. I doubt it’s just because she’s anaemic. I doubt it very much. I can only hope that they are going to shine some light on this issue soon.
Now then, Kousei feels guilty… Why!? Kaori was the one that wanted him to accompany her during that performance. He knows that she was somewhat aware of his condition. He hasn’t played in years and didn’t even get to practice that piece properly. He was forced to participate, which I still think was a good move to get him back into that world, where I think he belongs, and he did not perform as you would expect from a musician of that calibre. He had never played alongside her before and he hadn’t played like that for years. Kaori being hospitalized after that was simply not his fault. I just hope it doesn’t stop him from playing again.
