Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso (四月は君の嘘?), known in Western countries as Your Lie in April, is an anime adaptation of the manga series of the same name. The series aired as part of the Autumn 2014 anime line-up and was broadcast on Thursday nights in Japan.[1].

The adaptation was produced by A-1 Pictures and ran for 22 episodes. The series has also received one OVA episode.


Piano prodigy Kousei Arima dominated the competition and all child musicians knew his name. But after his mother, who was also his instructor, passed away, he had a mental breakdown while performing at a recital that resulted in him no longer being able to hear the sound of his piano even though his hearing was perfectly fine. Even two years later, Kousei hasn’t touched the piano and views the world in monotone, and without any flair or color. He was content at living out his life with his good friends Tsubaki and Watari until, one day, a girl changed everything. Kaori Miyazono is a pretty, free spirited violinist whose playing style reflects her personality. Kaori helps Kousei return to the music world and show that it should be free and mold breaking unlike the structured and rigid style Kousei was used to.
