If your soul belongs to music “Your Lie in April” will speak to you

I started watching Your Lie in April the other day, and, surprisingly it sucked me in like very little I’ve watched has nowadays. But my lack of interest in media is a different story. The story today is about how much this show touched the tiny musician drowning in my soul.

Hate to spoil it for you, so, I’ll try to skim around the details that make this lovely anime what it has been so far. So…as briefly as I can manage of a summary, the TV show is about a middle school boy who loses total interest in playing the piano after his mother dies. His mother is kind of, actually, really batshit, and abusive as fuck, and totally obsessed with her son being an amazing pianist, which, the way he plays within the TV show, I can’t blame her for wanting the best for him, because he has the hands of a god. So, he meets this violinist and she’s free spirited as hell and pushes him to be better (this is what I’ve gleaned so far as I have not finished this TV series quite yet).

Now that that you have a bit of backstory for those who haven’t yet seen it…

This quote: “This silence belongs to us, and every single person out there is waiting for us to fill it with something.” Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. And with a couple of tweaks, this could apply to most any art form from dancers having an empty stage to fill with movement, painters and drawers having blank canvases and paper, sculptors having a lump of clay or a chunk of metal waiting to be turned into art. That is what makes this quote so great to me. Actually, it can also describe everyday life; everyone has such and such amount of years to write their own stories. Now that I talk about stories, I remember that I totally left out writers and blank paper and those dreaded blinking cursors of the empty word processors waiting for frantic scribbles, dancing words, and bleeding poetry to stain them.

Also, without spoiling the treat, I think that this anime shows music in a very realistic light. Music for dedicated musicians is something that takes over your life and transforms you. The lovely pianist, upon observing the free-spirited violinist notes that she seems to be two different people: a regular, somewhat obnoxious girl off-stage, and a powerful, wild magician with an instrument onstage.

What if Peter Pan was black? Black kids can't go to Neverland? What if Peter isn't the star of this story? In this retelling of an old classic, my "Wendy" runs the show. It's like Disney but with a lot more darkness and a lot more girl power. It's...Neverland by Maple Summers.
