Shigatsu wa kimi no uso Live Action – Last year we got a confirmed news that Shigatsu wa kimi no uso Anime is getting a live action movie adaptation. Today its official website streamed a new promotional video clip which features Arima Kousei and Miyazono Kaori’s onstage live performance.

Music accompanies the path of the human metronome, the prodigious pianist Kousei Arima. But after the passing of his mother, Saki Arima, Kousei falls into a downward spiral, rendering him unable to hear the sound of his own piano.
Two years later, Kousei still avoids the piano, leaving behind his admirers and rivals, and lives a colorless life alongside his friends Tsubaki Sawabe and Ryouta Watari. However, everything changes when he meets a beautiful violinist, Kaori Miyazono, who stirs up his world and sets him on a journey to face music again.
Based on the manga series of the same name, Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso approaches the story of Kousei’s recovery as he discovers that music is more than playing each note perfectly, and a single melody can bring in the fresh spring air of April.

The Anime already took me on everlasting feel trip which was so brutal that tears come out of my eyes whenever i remember anything about this Anime. And just when the live action movie adaptation was announced i thought to myself – “The manga and anime were not enough for the producers, that’s why they are trying to destroy me with this live action.”
Now that i have watched the promotional videos and this new onstage performance video of Arima Kousei and Miyazono Kaori, i think i willing to sacrifice myself by watching this movie.
