Who the fuck else cried at the end?!?
I recommend FMA:B if you think this is too melodramatic
Kousei's last spiritual duet with Kaoru made no sense, how'd he know that she died during the recital? Would've been more dramatic if they just showed Kousei playing the piano and cut to Kaoru dying on the operating table or something.

Most bullshit ending ever. The random metaphysical clouds and shit ruined it for me. IMO music anime is better without all the extra shit like floating spheres of light and floating cherry petals.

There's no need for glowy bullshit in a good show, which Your Lie could have been.
Oh yeah, and her reasoning for not seducing him with song and then dating him was dumb.
