So the first is a classic Makoto Shinkai film.

The art is gorgeous, the music is really good (though not quite as good as his other works IMO), and the sound engineering is incredible (but will only be noticeable if you have a 5.1.2 setup or headphones). I thought the story was just so-so honestly. Fortunately it's a shorter length film than his other works, 45 minutes, so a pretty quick watch.

As for Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso, I just started it today and got 4 episodes in before the baseball game broadcast started. It's honestly pretty great. The art is mostly great, the music is fantastic (maybe just because I generally enjoy piano classical pieces). The slice-of-life part is a bit on the nose but probably typical for this genre. Not my favorite thing but I'm warming up to it. It feels like the core plot point is a more real-life kind of thing, which makes it more watchable and relatable. The end-game has been fairly predictable to this point at least but I'm enjoying it so far.

Normally I wouldn't say I'm into slice of life / drama animes and I've always kinda stayed away from them but I guess this is my life now .

Well, apparently I binged Your Lie in April over the last two days. Easy to do I guess when I'm on-call for work and can't really do anything outside.

That was a superbly well-done anime. Highly recommended.

Can't say more because I feel like I'd spoil it.

I started Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai tonight.

Yeah, watched that one immediately after a silent voice. Similar thematically I think. At least I would put them in the same bucket.
Enjoyed them both.

Finished it this morning (couldn't go back to sleep early after the work page). That was a pretty amazing one as well. A couple parts were maybe a little on the odd side to me, mostly the chanting stuff but I suppose that's due to the more supernatural nature of the plot.

I'm not sure if I want to watch another drama anime this week, not sure how much more emotional I can get

I think you would enjoy watching "A Whisker Away" if you liked "Your Lie in April," "Anohana," and "A Silent Voice."

Lol I totally get that. I very much enjoy dramas, the darker/more emotionally charged the better, but there are only so many in a row I can watch before I need something funny like Saiki K to reset.

Saiki K! Hilarious!

I think you can break up the dramas with "Aho Girl," and "Hi-Score Girl" if you haven't watched those yet.

+ @Spuds

But are these basically full slice of life comedy genre?

Not sure if I'm into comedies as much but could give them a try.

I would say "Aho Girl," and "Hi Score Girl" are more comedy with Hi Score Girl having slice of life elements in it since it does have a story line to it.



You've watched "Fruits Basket" already, right?
