These anime revolves around music, in which develops the traits of each character in the story. In Shigatsu, they use piano and/or violin and play classical music. In Hibike, they joined a wind ensemble and also play classical music. The characters strive for their best and overcome the difficulties they meet in order to play with all their best. They also join competitions.
More music but with pianos and violins. The story line is great and the graphics top notch
Beautiful animes about music, friendships, hardships and different emotions. Both are stunning series that you will enjoy even if you have no knowledge of music.
If you like the classic "romance, school, music, drama" genre combination (aka my favorite combo of genres) then you'll for sure love this anime. Both animes do a great job of expressing raw emotion, and Hibike does a fantastic job highlighting each individual character in their own respective ways to the extent where you can't help but feel emotionally attached to them all. Not to mention, much like Your Lie in April, the animation with Hibike! is top notch, if not better (which is quite the statement with how beautiful the animation in Your Lie in April was!).
If you're ready for another feels train, this
"Kimi ga iru kara, Boku wa Sonzaisuru."
"Anata ga iru kara, Watashi wa Dekiru."
Both are theme for Music. It includes beauty and symphony.
There is colorful timbre in the logic. That is cultural attractiveness.
Kousei Arima and Kumiko Oumae meets some important persons, and they grow up humanly.
Especially Kaori Miyazono and Reina Kousaka give a big boost to it.
Both have exquisite Drama. At times distress, at times collision. For really want to aim more.
And bonds of friendship are more basis than anything else.
If you loved HE, you'll definitely like KimiUso and HE's sequel.
HE becomes completed version from sequel. ABSOLUTELY.
Students Playing a Piano and Violin VS Students Playing in a School Band 10/10
both of these anime are musical materpieces, featuring great graphics, moving ost, decent story (both are pretty character driven, your lie in april moreso than h!e), and some romance (don't try to tell me that kumiko and reina are not in love.). hibike is a lot less tragic and a little faster paced than your lie in april
Same genres and almost same story.
In Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso story revolves around a boy that play Piano very good but left it midway.
And now his friend trying to get him back playing piano.
In Hibike! Euphonium? story revolves around a girl who plays Euphonium very good and joins good for nothing concert band of a school,now she and her companion target goals to perform at nationals,Can they do it?
Extracurricular school activities the same theme.By then participating in the school or outside school.
So when a race or competition, namely:
4. Hard Business
6. Set the Balance
Music, drama, emotion, and competitions, both very good. Beautiful is the best word to describe them.
