I just made my You Lie in April anime review, Heres the link: https://myanimelist.net/reviews.php?id=337896. I hope you check it out.
What's your opinion about the show? I am curious.
If you like and found my review helpful. I Appreciate the clicking the Helpful button.
Mikuru is also my least favourite of the SOS Brigade. Chisaki might have been my favourite from Nagi no Asukara but I don't remember finer points of that show.
hope to see your thoughts/views there .
topic is about YUKING CHAN LYING and HACHIMAN disappointment
Really, what is the point of teasing that much just to skip to the true end? It seems like this was a last minute change or something.
I don't like the decision to go this far with the show and end it so anticlimactically.
Even doing the time resets wouldn't have been as bad as this, especially since a lot of people will take it as a rewarding miracle.
Now it just seems like everything in the dream world was just pointless worrying.
But THIS has to be the biggest troll from JC Staff- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNACXBZpDKc&feature=youtu.be&t=2m3s
I seriously thought that would be Riki waking up from the narcoleptic attack to see everyone dead, but I guess not.
I couldn't even take the girls' farewells that seriously because of where the show is headed. At least I got some Kurugaya http://i.imgur.com/1WGE3ug.gif
So let me quickly reply to what you wrote, now.
- Yes. There is little engagement in the audience due to its presentation and changes from the VN. It wasn't supposed to be EXACTLY like the VN, but it was supposed to become more engaging and interesting through the transition to anime than it turned out. You pretty much have to find a time to watch it secluded and force yourself to pay attention in order to get engaged in it.
-I don't think their minds are reset in the anime. I think they couldn't keep deep memories beyond the world. The conclusion I came up with was that each girl retained memories of their routes being solved, but not their romance with Riki. The only girl who was able to do this, besides Rin, was Kurugaya, as her true end takes place in the real world and she remembers loving Riki. It could be a plot hole to retcon everyone's romance but theirs, or something, or it could be related to how memories are handled with the dream world, which was my impression from Kurugaya's route in the VN with how her memories were wiped.
**I wrote an explanation for her route in my gallery now, for the anime interpretation.
- I think a lot of VN viewers seeing Kyousuke actually suffering was pretty emotional.
One of my friends didn't even tear up for the farewells in the VN. He was too mindblown by the entire thing. In the anime, he teared up for episodes 9 and 10.
My other friend only teared up at the farewells, but on rewatch, he also teared up at 9 and 10. I'm in the same boat as this second friend.
And yeah, I really wish it could've been better done. I think the animation and direction was pretty good and stylish, considering the shitty budget this show has had, but it still could've been more precise, and they could've made it less of a recap, and more of something else.
And FUCK! They also cut down on the great moments between Riki and Kyousuke. Kyousuke's thoughts as Riki visits his room.
"I wish I could hug you right now. "
How rewarded would it make you feel if I were to praise you right now?
----All right, Riki, just follow me. I'll take down your enemy.
How secure would you feel if I were to tell you that right now?
But I hold myself back, gritting my teeth.
So does he.
In the VN, Riki was really on the verge of tears, and his voice fit a lot better at this point, honestly. When Kyousuke was like "Is something bothering you?" And Riki, with his voice trembling, responds "All too many things." It was amazing.
Watch for a few minutes- http://youtu.be/D8nhVWdnWSc?t=45m50s
They continued to detach Kyousuke and Riki, rather than focus on their reliance on each other during Refrain, which is making the series even worse. I didn't really realize how important Kyousuke was to Riki and vice versa until this arc, but that's barely established in the VN. The anime just sort of throws in the same flashback with "Kyousuke saved me!" over and over, and this kind of beautiful dialogue is just gone from the show.
- Kurugaya's route was butchered to shit imo, and her motives are completely off and inconsistent. One minute she says that she wished the days would never end because Riki wanted to be with his friends forever. Then she talks about how she wanted to experience love more often. They got rid of her diary parts, which built up so much tension and struggle in the VN. It was just bad in terms of buildup, even if the ending was sad. Kurugaya's character is extremely shallow in the anime compared to the VN because of this, and that's disappointing to see, because I'd like some instances of Little Busters' better writing to actually show in the anime, because it's admittedly not amazingly written in parts of the heroine routes.
-Yeah, I think that theory should be legit.
