Chihayafuru, Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso Recommendations
- Kousei <-> Arata
- Kaori <-> Chihaya
The difference though is that Chihayafuru is centered on the energetic girl who wants to bring people into her world while Shigatsu wa kimi no uso is centered on the depressed boy who stopped performing.
I really like how both bring up how passionate their characters are.
Also the music in both those shows is perfect,
Shigatsu wa kimi no uso its similar to Chihayafuru not for his story, because both are very different, are similar for the personality of the main characters in the two animes. The main characters in both animes are constantly fighting to achieve his own dreams, in Chiyahayafuru and Shigatsu they fight for overcome obstacles and overcome their fears. Also, in the two animes we have the feeling of fresh youth and the passion of the main characters to fulfill their own dreams. In Chihayafuru the love of traditional Karuta game and in Shigatsu the love for classical music.
Even though Chihayafuru is much more competition focused and intense, Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso is similar to it because they both are about a group of students learning about themselves, their limits and this one special profession which they put their best effort to succeed in.
In both of them there is passion and crazy love triangles.
Two boys lose their passion for their talent after the death of someone important to them until a girl comes along and rekindles it. However, SKU focuses more on the boy while the opposite for Chihayafuru
The main characters in both animes have similar personality. Arata lose their passion for Karuta after the death of someone important just like Arima in Shigatsu Kimi no Uso. Until one day Chihaya comes to his house and make Arata to play Kurata again.
Both anime have the feeling of fresh youth and the passion of the main characters to fulfill their own dreams.
these are similar in the way that they are both about a young girls whos passion and love for something practically forces others to be a part of it. they are both definitely worth watching.
The art style is similar and the characters themselves reflect on that. Both have romance mixed with a recreational activity being music and a card game.
Arata is very similar to Kousei in terms of both art style and personality/backstory
Taichi and Watari look alike and are popular among girls
Kaori and Chihaya have some similarities between them, but the main focus is on the two leading male protagonists and their decision making.
While watching Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso, I got the sames vibes I had while watching Chihayafuru. Though the contents are different, both Kousei and Arata's stories are somewhat similar. They both leave something they love due to the death os a family member and manage to go back to it by the help and support of the important people in their lives.
They both inspire people to do better and also inspire a level of competitiveness and admiration in their rivals/opponents.
Both are worth watching.
