"The Shadows Whisper" (カゲささやく Kage sasayaku?) is the seventh episode of the Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso anime adaptation. It first aired in Japan on November 20, 2014.


The contest approaches. Kousei has memorized his selected piece but doesn't know if he could play the piece in his style and make the piece his own.

He is anguished during sport and collapses during a lap and is carried to a health-care room. "Anyhow you're you", said The Cat to Kousei in. The answer which worried, wavered and arrived painfully was so simple.

The day of the contest finally came. Kousei, worries that he may not be able to play the piano any more. But whether it's the one of the mind, the Cat heartens him. Two rivals are waiting for Kousei in a meeting place at the time.

When people judged Emi, Takeshi, and Kousei at a contest several years ago and Kousei kept catching the prize, Emi and Takeshi were pianists of the same generation who longed for Kousei, were jealous and regarded him as a rival.
