Live Action of the popular anime and manga works that excited the fans in the recent seasons. History of music, love and adolescence of young boys and girls in their prime teenage years.
On the way back from my last trip to Japan, during the long crossing, I spent a bit 'of time watching videos and movies available, and in the browse list the surprise (and some pleasure) was the live action of Shigatsu wa Kimi no use (四月 は 君 の 嘘). I followed the anime in past seasons, I read the manga, so I was thrilled to be able to watch the ide this transposition with real characters.

For those unfamiliar with this series (I believe they are within) the plot tells the story of Kousei Arima, a former piano prodigy since she was very small, until the death of his mother, after that he became unable to play, cutting it off from the world of music. The meeting with violinist Kawori Miyazono will bring a total upheaval in his life. She is bubbly, careless, a personality overflowing with energy and zest for life (although this hides a tragic secret), which will involve the protagonist and his 2 friends.

The Live Action had already left by many expectations, preceded by an anime broadcast in the 2014/2015 winter season, with 22 episodes and manga started in 2011 on Monthly Shonen Magazine that saw the release of 11 volumes, when had its output volume of the manga.

Unfortunately, the result is not the best. There are various factors that have contributed to lower and worse, what could have been an amazing Live.
It is true that it is always difficult to transpose Live in a manga or anime series, to please the fans who have already created is always complicated, and there will always be different opinions. But I am sure that those who have followed the series and read the manga will agree with me that they could do much, much better.

Let's start with the characters. The actors chosen are young, cute, but are distant from both the look that the character of the animated characters. I know it is always difficult to find actors who have correspondences with the characters that will have to interpret, expectations are always high, especially for those who have served the anime series and manga

As for the performance of the Live, here are some notes. I understand that unlike an anime or manga that you have available time in carrying out the plot, a movie or a live must condense and only show some of the work items. But the problem lies here.
There are important parts that were skipped, other developed and little evil. Jumps to the eye too few jumps in the narrative, elements that would better understand the history or which would make it more fluid are missing or worse.

Following other fan people of this series, I received the same notes, what has most disappointed is precisely the narrative style, sometimes makes it difficult to understand why some parts.
For those who have never seen the anime or read the manga, I do not know if you might like it, but who knows I could be wrong ... :) let me know yours.
