Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso or better known as Your lie in April is an 22 episode anime that focuses heavily on music. This anime takes you off on a ride on the emotion roller-coaster taking you everywhere possible. The story revolves around Arima Kouse, a piano prodigy who dominated competitions.

A beautiful and free-spirited Violinist Miyazono Kaori guide Kouse back into the music world, painting colours into his life.
IMO: Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso was such a great anime, although it may seem a little slow paced at the start, the story line builds up really with great character development. You are given enough time to fall in love with the characters and then your poor little heart gets all tossed around. This anime also features classical musics, you might just fall in love with classical music after watching this. Tears were shed and I have no regrets. A must watch for romance lovers.
