This anime is about music and romance. The main character, Arima Kosei, struggles with his life as a middle age student. He was consent with his life, until one day, one girl, Miyazono Kaori, changed everything. I recommend watching this anime if you watched Ano Hana, because the main characters are similar to one another and how they both have someone supporting them. Especially the ending for both animes.

Your Lie in April is basically Anohana's second coming, having both done by A-1 Pictures and both having the intention of ripping your heart out in pieces. One thing that both shows share is that there is a good portion of the story being about the childhood of the characters, and even the conflict on both shows started in their childhood. But what separates them from each other is Your Lie in April is more on music while Anohana is more on childhood nostalgia. My personal preferences: If you're a person who've watched Your Lie in April first and is going to watch Anohana, I prefer   read more

Friends who develop their friendship. Some romance involved (slight triangle or square). A girl who helps a boy to get back into the world. The boy stopped doing something that used be a part of their daily life. The girl is very enthusiastic and inspiring.

The animes are similar in the part of the (SPOILER! DON'T READ) death ambiance that are present in the episodes. You can tell that there's someting that it doens't feel right in the middle of the happiness of the characters They are both very emotional and it beat right in the feeling. After all the conflits are settled, you can't understand if there is an happy or a bad ending. You stay happy, but you want to cry.

Did you cry while watching "The Flower We Saw That Day"? Do you enjoy anime that make you cry? Are you a masochist? So am I. Your Lie in April, just like The Flower We Saw That Day, will make you cry (unless you're a cold heartless bastard). Your Lie in April is the journey a boy makes, with the help of a pretty classmate, to overcome his depression and continue to play piano after his mother/piano teacher passed away from an illness. Similarities between the two anime are: Great Animations/Graphics, music that can make a grown man cry, and a stellar voice acting cast.   read more

- Both anime revolve around an MC who has trouble letting go of the past. - Both anime attempt to communicate powerful messages with their story. - There is more depth in many characters than what initially meets the eye within both of the shows.

*Spoiler* Ano Hana is yet another one similar to Shigatsu as in the male protagonist meets someone who's known them from the past and is their first love.

Love triangle - check. Death of significant someone changing MC's life - check. Plot to rehabilitate one's self - check. Feels - definitely check. Bonus: Both are from the same studio.

While their main story is different from each other, their similarity lies in that both have main characters who are burdened with their past as they try to face forward to a better future. Another thing is that you'll be bombarded by a variety of feels as you learn more about the characters and story. There are also the love triangle aspect that brings out drama.

Both series are absolutely fantastic dramas that feature wonderful characters. If you are looking for a beautiful anime that will bring tears to your eyes like Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso, then this is a perfect choice.
report Recommended by Nomannice
Both have amazing intro and outro, with the portrayal of each character and their personality. Final episode is said to be the climax where the tittle only make sense after watching it and tears will be dropped, supposedly. Also, both will show you how hidden feelings and emotions can make you feel warm inside and yet to be filled with regrets. It's a play on secrets and drama of a few teenagers with their own story to tell.

If you want an emotional ride that will surely make you cry, you can find that in both of these anime. Both these anime tell very touching and heartbreaking stories. Both these shows know how to use music in an effective way to trigger emotion. Being very similar shows is why if you like Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai, I would recommend watching Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso.

I would recommend Your lie in April. Why it's because not only this was my first ever anime. This anime will make the person whoever I recommended it to create an attachment with the characters and story to the point that they will have feelings at the end of it. After watching this, they will want to consume more anime to fill in the void that this anime created to them. Not only that, but this anime will teach them the lesson of healthy relationships and live life to the fullest. This is a great anime to start. It has all of the components to   read more

They are both about losing a loved one and trying to find inner peace with each other before they go. Both are pretty hard tearjerkers, too.

If you like tearing to death with anime, this one is for you.
report Recommended by Kyoto_Zero
Both plots have similar twists to them (though the main ideas are different). One centers around the traumas of losing someone with who you couldn't make amends with while the other talks about the repercussions of death towards those who were close to the person. Both animes take the concept of losing people and put it into a story perspective. They're both really good animes that are heart-wrenching and tear a piece of your soul out. While Ano Hana focuses on multiple protagonists and the aspects of how death affected the relationships of the once close friend group, Your Lie in April takes the similar   read more
