Piano prodigy Arima Kosei 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, Kosei 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. Miyazono Kaori is a pretty, free spirited violinist whose playing style reflects her personality. Kaori helps Kosei return to the music world and show that it should be free and mold breaking unlike the structured and rigid style Kosei was used to.

Just finished watching this anime and I'm literally sobbing right now. What a wonderful, deep, bright animated anime that is still so sad, but wonderful at the same time. Definitely a must watch.

Considering most of the other reviews on this page seem to have been made halfway through the season, I figured I'd add another one that was written after it ended. This is one of my absolute favorite anime series. The art and music are great. The drama is too, even though it is very predictable. Don't watch this show if you want constant plot twists. Don't watch it if you want to be surprised every week. But do watch it if you want excellent drama accompanied by some beautiful classical music. And keep a box of tissues ready.

On another note, this is one of the very few shows where I like both OPs and both EDs. Even those are perfectly matched to the show, and listening to the second ED has caused me some tears even months after the show ended.
