  • Comments: While watching Your Lie in April, I was struck by Kousei's struggles with his music and his incessant strive for perfectionism instilled by his mother's abuse. To me, Kousei rediscovering his love for music and letting go of his fear is the heart of the series. I wanted to make a video that highlighted this, and I felt this song was a good match. I thought of framing it as if Kousei is performing the song to bring out the mix of sorrow, anger, and anxiety that he feels about his music; it's an uncomfortable song, and it ends in an uncomfortable way for the audience (both inside the video and out)... it gets a bit meta.

    It's a very personal video and I wasn't too sure about even finishing it, but in the end I'm glad I did, despite whatever flaws it may have.
