Utilizing similar romance tropes, viewers can expect to find themselves emotionally drawn in by the ups and downs, but a touch of mystery added in.
The story is set were the characters needs to confront their pasts to face reality and move forward into the future. They are both very emotional and strong stories.

In both anime the cast must confront their pasts to face reality and move forward into the future.
Both are touching stories about growing up and having to deal with real issues. Both will also rip you apart emotionally. Wonderful soundtracks too.
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
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.

If u liked Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai you will like Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso too.The story is emotional and the Main Characters are very similar.

All in all, similar themes of living for the present.
Both are touching, and moves you to appreciate the things you have in life more.
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.
Both emotional anime with relatable characters. Both awesomely conducted for a bittersweet ending. You'll sure like it.
These two shows are really touching and sad, and main themes include friendship and romance, as well as coming of age.

- Both anime revolve around an MC who has trouble letting go of the past.

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.
The vibe of the anime is similar, and so is the overall theme of the anime.
THEY BOTH RIPPED MY HEART INTO MILLION PIECES.
REWATCH IT ALMOST DOZEN OF TIME YET I AM STILL CRYING.
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.
