User Reviews

 
The Anime that breaks and mends your heart over and over again.
10 January 2017 | by kerikclarkeSee all my reviews

This anime is a piece of art. It makes me wish that I saw life so beautifully and with so much emotion. The classical music and intense descriptions of what the characters Kousei, Tsubaki, and Kaori experience throughout their musical pieces ran me for quite a journey. If I were to rate the situations that the characters go through on a scale of realism, I think that such experiences in real life can only really happen to certain people with real perceptions of what life should be. Then again I could be just strange. It's only my opinion.

This anime, unfortunately wont be as enjoyed by those who aren't seeking in their life what this anime offers emotionally (Particularly the good parts.) (Again my opinion).
