Uchuu Kyoudai, Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso Recommendations
Mutta is a down on his luck guy that has lost touch with his childhood ambition: to be an astronaut. Arima is a guy who hasn't quite given up piano, but is stuck in his past. Both make a plethora of excuses, and are unable to move forward in life.
But, people appear who pull them along into their past dreams, and they begin to change in positive ways. For Mutta, it's his little brother Hibito. For Arima, it's Miyazono.
Both are shows about the long way of achieving your goals.
They're set in the real world and are both doing really well in creating certain deeper moods. Similar tragedies in both shows, similar situations.
Excellent use of music in both shows.
They were both very touching and bittersweet at times.
