Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso, Kimi no Na wa. Recommendations
Deeply moving, beautiful music. Both highlight the inner struggle and the influence of other people in understanding this struggle.
Fabulous OST first of all, but these are deserving of their high ratings. Both have a story that is very strong and interesting to follow, and by rewatching these you can see new things that you hadn't the first time. Both story's are incredibly well told with twists and turns, but the entire thing is covered in foreshadowing. Along with beautiful art style, I am really glad that they both receive credit for all of the amazing attributes of these anime
Premise wise and all, not similar at all. They feature personal connections and love as driving plot points in common, but that would be about it.
What you're looking to watch Kimi no Na wa for after this is for that same GUT WRENCHING, POWERFUL, feels moment. In everything I've watched (which to some salted veterans of this site is very little but I digress) nothing has hit that emotional roller coaster ride quite like these two experiences.
Don't do them back to back. You won't cope.
although the story is completey different, but the way they apply the realistic feeling of human are the same and u could feel how the character was feeling. And also after finishing kimi no na wa/ shigatsuwa kimi no uso, will have the same feeling, the emotions keep roling in your head and heart.
Both stories can tap into the feels of their audience like no one else by utilizing their art and background music to develop a an emotionally charged atmosphere.
Both have amazing music and animation. Both of these anime are quite sad and might make you cry.
Are you longing for the bittersweet, sad feeling you got from Kimi no Na wa? Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso is a marathon of sadness compared to Kimi no Na wa's more perfectly tuned length. Their plots are quite different, but both are set around teenagers and their personal relationships. As a emotional fix, this is the perfect followup to Kimi no Na wa.
Both Your Lie in April and Your Name have "your" in the title. Both of these titles follow mainly a male protagonist with a female supporting. These titles are easily able to pull tears out of you and keep you intrigued the entire way through.
