I have a very big thing for anime. As childish as it may seem, I watch a lot of it...
I like those that have a really nice story line, those that evoke emotion and those with superb animation. So, it should be no surprise that I watched Shigatsu Wa Kimi No Uso. It’s a lovely little story about a boy and a girl finding each other through music and how she is able to help him recover from his grief.
One of the things that had me dumbfounded was the music. Not only did the creators choose beautiful classical compositions, to perfectly accompany intimate moments, there were various pieces throughout the background, which were just as enticing. This isn’t really a review of the anime, but it is just a depiction of how the anime made me feel.
The music took me to a different world. Have you ever experienced that? Have you ever heard a song that was so beautiful that it made you imagine something, while you were listening to it? Well that’s exactly how I felt throughout most of the episodes. The background music had me lost for words.
Additionally, the anime helped me to find a song that I have been searching for. I’m sure you’ve heard it in a movie before. Clair de lune by Claude Debussy is such a charming song. It lifts my soul and completely puts me at peace. When I listen to the song, all I can imagine is being in the sun, outside, laughing and running around like a child. It is so cliché isn’t it? But that’s the kind of songs I like, the ones that send me to a different world and give me goose bumps. All I can say is it’s delicious; it completely moved me and put me at ease.
Like I said before, this is not a review about the anime. I’m just really grateful for watching it because it brought me to a happy place. As you can probably already tell, I love classical music. I like most types of music but instrumental songs have a soft place in my heart.
Still, I wish I could explain how happy I am right now, after hearing the most beautiful instrumental songs in that anime. It makes me dream of playing violin or a saxophone and filling people’s heart with my rendition of my favorite songs.
That’s what I like about the arts; they open my mind to different possibilities and a colorful life. Music really does transcend words; because if you’re anything like me, you won’t know what I’m talking about until you hear it yourself. So check out that anime and tell me how you felt while watching it. I think it was simply beautiful, like poetry maybe.
What are you thinking? I want to know, so please share your thoughts with me. Or just tell me about your favorite song. Comment below! Don’t be stingy with your thoughts.
