I don't see Your Lie as much a romance anime because its a music anime to me...
especially considering the last part of episode 8, this is simply the best music segment anime has yet to produce imo

good suggestion for sure


The only difficulty I have with calling Your Lie a music anime is that, as I recall, besides the last episode, every time someone plays music, it's constantly interrupted by inner monologues and flashbacks. I think the last episode was the only time we had uninterrupted music being played. While music definitely plays a big part in the show, I just personally feel it isn't the main focus.

The problem was thinking I already eliminated it. Your lie in April, is what made me realize the thing is still here. I just got through one of the most difficult scenes in Clannad After Story though. I feel dead inside.

If I was the friend and you'd suggested only Your Lie in April, then I would have to seriously reassess our friendship. Since it's only one of a handful, then you could always say you were trying to give a little variety.

Now, if you had suggested School Days, then I would immediately cease to be your friend, stop watching anime forever, and maybe become your sworn enemy instead.

You're a good friend for not spoiling. Even having it revealed that it's tragic would be too much information for me.

Yes, go apologize to them and bring some tissues and ice cream. Get them a card too.

I just realized when you posted this. You fiend, you lied to your friend, in April!

Yes. You are a bad person because Your Lie is bad.

Nope. It is partly a romance anime and telling your friend that it'd be sad sort of counts as a spoiler and people appreciate those who don't give spoilers.

You want a bad person? Try those who suggest to random people to watch School Days or the most answered when someone ask for a recommendation: Boku no Pico. I heard many have fallen for the bait and many of them have their friends suggesting it.

Actually, I recommend School Days to people. I don't do it randomly, and I don't lie about it; while I don't spoil it, I do at least warn people to prepare themselves for whatever happens. I just think that it's such a prominent show in the anime community that I almost feel it would be a disservice to oneself not to see it at some point.

Well I agree it is partially a romance , you should have said its a romance anime and some because it is not just a romance anime.

and that show is quiet deep story wise , with classical music and with beautiful art animation. I would highly recommend that to anyone who love stories with a lot of character work. Its a high quality title overall.

I guess the show isn't that bad. I haven't watched it but I have seen clips of the last episode and all the bad ends from the games. The curiosity got to the point where I read a bunch of stuff about it on tvtropes and wiki (It's the reason I like watching gory anime now lol) and it seems interesting.

And if my niece suggested to me to watch the whole series, I don't think it's that bad.

Well I mean, Your Lie in April IS a romance anime, so it's not like you lied or anything. And if your referring to the ending, it's not like the ending comes out of nowhere, there's plenty of setup for it, as I recall.

So unless you know the show includes something that you know your friend explicitly doesn't like and you recommended it solely because you derive some kind of sick pleasure from doing so, you are not a bad person.


This exactly.

Ironically, the Eng. dub voice of Kousei was also Saitama.
