Your Lie in April is the story of Kousei, a young piano prodigy who, after the death of his mother, had a mental breakdown and ultimately lost the ability to hear the music he played. Three years later, he meets his playboy best friend’s new girlfriend, Kaori—a free-spirited violinist who makes it her life’s mission to rekindle Kousei’s lost love for performing music on stage.
Your lie in April is a love story of two flawed teens brought together by their love of music. As I considered, this drama shows us the totally raging of two different situations; the battle of illness and the deep remorse of a child who was abused for the sake of his music.
I would call it also a deceitful masterpiece wherein at first it appears light-hearted, the songs are quite adorable, the visual was full of colorful pastels that lead you to the idea of being in love again, and yet it was more than that. The story is quite deeper, emotional and totally bittersweet.Though, there two sides who debated on this show- those who absolutely love it, and those that strongly dislike it, well I’m on the side of liking it. The characters of our spirited violinist who is confident, beautiful, fragile, strong-willed, and with Kosei’s black and white life, it was all simply blended into a chord of a vibrant journey.
With good art, music, likable characters and pain, I give this 9/10.
Spoiler: Why lie in April? It’s all there in Kaori’s letter to Kousei.
We know life is not that easy but the dark night does break forth into a new day and there, the world is waiting,it’s not the same day, so pretty sure, eventually it gets better.
Ninon Okamura (Marie Iitoyo) and Yuiji Kira (Taishi Nakagawa) live next door to each other, but they have not talked with each other at school. Ninon Okamura learns from her parents that Yuji only has a year to live. One day, Yuiji Kira tells Ninon Okamura that he doesn’t want to die and he doesn’t to be alone. Ninon Okamura tells him that she will be by his side until he dies.
This drama is not bad and not so very good. Because of its cuteness and pureness, it’s worth watching for. I like the two leads chemistry, their characters are not forceful and the development was spontaneous. I truly enjoyed the visual of our Yuiji Kira, he is so pretty.
Plot-wise, the story is not that original, we have seen several movies that deals on lovers with fatal illnesses. But what makes this movie significant is their relationship that both portray of their loneliness but was able to catch their time, simply supporting and loving each other. I think this all we need in reality.
This movie is the live-action adaptation of the Japanese manga Kyo no Kira-kun written by Rin Mikimoto. They have said that mangga is better than this movie, obviously, in reading the story would be more detailed and it’ll explore your imagination.
Nonetheless, I give this 8/10.
We need a goal in our life. It doesn’t matter if the picture is big or small. It doesn’t matter if we succeeded or not.
We can plan the life we wanted, but some doors were opened and part of is not.
Sometimes we lose our track, but we can choose to be a victim or still have the intent on arriving.
Blunders will tag along, either we take control or shrinks in failure, it’s up to us if we can live beyond what we are capable of.
What matters most is how we accompany our lives with taking the chances we have because, in the end, we don’t want to feel regret, there is no medicine for it.
For all the chances we take, we can console ourselves by saying, “at least I have given it an honest shot.”
A beer fills me awake for hours, causing me weak in my knees.
I can still sense my intellect but it keeps bragging in the midst.
I want to free myself, be ecstatic of all the substance I hate.
Delight my heart with resignation.
Be mindful without hesitations.
But only dead air rattles my imaginary taste.
What am I thinking? my thoughts asked what makes my soul haul this feeling?
While I’m sober, I can restrain my complaint,
but now with just a beer, it warns me strain.
I am dead tired, my whole body pains,
Not even a dozen of medicine could help it within.
Waking up in the middle of the night, unable to sleep again,
My soul is shouting, not needing to feel the pain.
Why it bothers me for all the things I cannot have?
Ever since I was young, I played this game a lot.
Why am I alone in my exhaustion?
Where are the people I called my own?
As I continuously think of silliness,
I couldn’t do anything, but to make this clear,
In this cruel, unbiased world, nothing seems will change,
Except the taste of this luscious fucking beer.
“It’s always been nice to have you near and to enjoy your company and your loyalty; it’s important to have the friendship and affection of someone with whom we can share our joys and sorrows, and discuss our problems without fear or reservations.
But, the best part of knowing someone like you is not to feel obliged to do something when we’re together, just like being able to watch TV without saying a word, not feeling bored or wanting to be by yourself; and I miss you when you’re far away, taking care of your life while I take care of mine.
To be a friend is to be able to enjoy the best things the other person has to offer, to recognize their faults, but to know they are bearable. On the other hand, to be a friend is to offer our virtues with all the generosity in the world and to live without masks or faces to hide our faults, habits or differences.
The meaning of friendship, something that surrounds us in such a natural way that we don’t even bother much to understand what it truly means. Maybe I can’t really express that meaning, but it’s good to know that there’s someone supporting us, even if sometimes they don’t fully agree with what we are thinking or doing and they don’t hesitate to show their point of view.
That’s what true friends are like because they know that a different opinion will not change a deep feeling of mutual and sincere trust.”
Cheers to all of us who have this kind of friendship!
It is true that family is extremely important to our lives, but reality shows that some of us are closer to our friends than to our family. It was easy to confide and share our problems and even secrets to our friends. You can see also others enjoy their time with their buddies more than with parents and siblings, maybe because family events are often serious or maybe a little boring.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my family, but the truth is, there’s some stuff that I am more comfortable to discuss with my friends. It happened also that I didn’t get the same reactions from them (they are serious) compared to my friends who will take it lightly and made you laugh. On the other hand, it is also tested that our family helps us no matter what, even though they are the last person we run to.
I just learned that if I want to be close to my family, I just have to treat them like my friends – be open, have fun with them, in any case, start to communicate, let them feel “when you’re with them you can be yourself” and of course, always show them that they are more important than anyone else.
Further, let us also treat our friends like family, we should give them our trust, support, and commitment.
For me, nothing is to contend about Family Vs. Friends. They both played significant roles in our lives, and we needed them whether we like it or not.
Do not rush to marry. Take it slow. Take your time.
Marriage is never a race. The fastest seldom wins.
But the one who starts right and perseveres throughout does.
Build friendship first. It will be your strongest foundation later on.
Remember, looks and talents are fleeting and so are material things.
What lasts are character and maturity.
Know your essentials. Don’t compromise these.
Learn to let go of some preferences too. They can be done without.
The delays and mishaps have its reasons. Forgive and forget. Look forward and move on.
Don’t dwell on the past also.
Never blame others and self for your mistakes.
Instead, learn and grow from them.
Just don’t keep on repeating them as that’s foolishness already.
Don’t get ahead with God by the way.
He knows what’s best for you. Just trust in Him.
Get busy working on yourself as you wait.
Improve and be the best person that you can be.
I got married at a ripe old age of 37.
I courted my wife for more than three years.
And we’re blessed with two cute daughters.
I married right. Not too early and not too late.
This sharing is my way of paying it to forward the goodness I receive from the Lord Almighty through my marriage.
Oh yes, marriage is a bliss indeed and a beautiful thing if done right.
Don’t miss this out for you deserve only the best.
I give a toast to the married and soon to be married people reading this.
Sometimes, we are the one who causes pain. And I realized I owe a quite a bit of apology.
I met you at my lowest times. I wasn’t exactly looking for love in that span of time, but just someone to fool around. I got you as the rebound for my failed relationship. I know I have created a big mess and have had hurt you enormously.
It should be a jarring relationship and because you are so good to suffer my flaws, I have to end it. My conscience begs me to do it because deep inside I know you are not worthy to share of every drop from my lies and insincerity.
I am sorry about the way I handled things to end. You were too great, but I was so sure of myself that still, I can’t love you back, or anyone else.
I am sorry for ignoring your calls, for hiding myself and for keeping the truth. I am sorry for making you love me and never reciprocated it. I am sorry for giving you heartache you never deserved, for being with me in times of my needs, but left you unsettled. So sorry because I have hurt you cruelly.
Despite all, THANK YOU for writing me today, for hearing my words with an assurance that it wasn’t hard for you to forgive me. Thank you for letting me those guilts off my chest.
I’m happy now that you got your real love from someone who deserves you better than me. I cheer for your endless happiness.
From my heart to yours, Happy Valentine’s day to all.
Let’s cherish the gift of love that we have been given and the happiness that we are feeling.
And to my one and only, I Love you THIS much.
I’ve been thinking about you today and to tell you how sorry I am that I couldn’t sit around with you right now. I know you have gone through so much dilemma and you want to talk about it, just like we always do before I left you. I know you need someone to share and discuss your problems without fear or reservations and I’m so sorry I couldn’t be that someone at this moment.
Seeing you last time how devastated you are, broke my heart. It was always my wish to see you happy and start a life that you ever wanted. I can’t stop thinking about you and regret the days gone without consoling your broken heart. I wished I could be with you in that consequential moment when you wanted to run away and just holding you close seems enough to understand that you are not alone.
I made a promise to myself when will see each other again, I will do my very best part to listen, to lift you up and be your same-old companion. I will try to bring hope to you when seems all hopeless.
Please wait for me.
