I've watched this three times, each of which at different stages of my life and every single time it depresses me. The first time I've seen it was when I was but a child and couldn't understand what the situation was but the depiction of the kids in the Anime and their ordeals actually got to me and made me sad. The second time was when I was an adult and understood what was going on and that really depressed me. The third time was when I was much older and have seen a lot of other "depressing" films (Anime and non-Anime alike) and had wanted to see this again just for the heck of it, to test whether the affects of the first 2 times I've seen it were just flukes. And I must say, it tugged at my heartstrings and depressed me.
it is an amazing anime great storyline and it has his own kind of drama.
but the end is kind of depressing.
It granted a wish ;-(
Almost makes you cry.
Depressing, but still one of the best anime to watch.
The first one not so much as the second one, but overal very sad and depressing
You cannot control what you take and give ;-(
The story of the afterlife. It has a great storyline and it has good animation. I think this was the anime game me the greatest impact.
Piano prodigy Arima Kosei dominated the competition and all child musicians knew his name. But after his mother, who was also his instructor, passed away, he had a mental breakdown while performing at a recital that resulted in him no longer being able to hear the sound of his piano even though his hearing was perfectly fine. Even two years later, Kosei hasn't touched the piano and views the world in monotone, and without any flair or color. He was content at living out his life with his good friends Tsubaki and Watari until, one day, a girl changed everything. Miyazono Kaori is a pretty, free spirited violinist whose playing style reflects her personality. Kaori helps Kosei return to the music world and show that it should be free and mold breaking unlike the structured and rigid style Kosei was used to.
