Now that the Re-watch under the Full-Bloom of Spring has finished, I would like to take a moment and express my gratitude. What I wanted most out of watching this anime again was to talk about it with others. Thanks to all your help, I got that and more.
Part of the reason I started blogging in the first place was to have a way to talk about anime with other people. In joining this community I’ve been able to do that with many interesting bloggers on a variety of topics. Still, there are times when I craved something a little more involved. Something akin to the anime clubs you would find in schools and such where you could really exchange thoughts on a shared experience.
I picked Your lie in April for this event because it’s one of my favorite anime. That might even be putting it too lightly. It might be my favorite, period. (I’ve always been poor with making these judgements). I feel like I can talk endlessly about it and, aside from Kimmie, I’ve not been able to watch it with anyone, so I reached out to all of you!
I would have loved to sit down with all of you somewhere and watch this show over the course of a month, but I’m glad to see that time and distance didn’t stop many of you from making that wish partially come true. You guys didn’t hold back, and let me know how this beautifully tragic show made you feel with each episode. For some of you who didn’t know what to expect, it may have made you very sad. I’m sorry if this was the case, but hopefully this series gave you much more than it took.
Through our talks, I was able to do more than just share what I thought. I was exposed to things I didn’t catch before, and discovered more about this anime than I could have on my own. Better still, I feel like I got to know you all a little better too.
So I want to thank all of you who joined me. Those of you who couldn’t pass up the chance to watch this again and those who watched for the first time at my suggestion. A lot of things about this series are memorable for me, but now one of those things will be that one April, under the full bloom of Spring, I watched it with all of you.
I hope you all had a lot of fun with this as well. I don’t think I can’t repay you in kind for what you gave me with your time and participation, but I do have some small prizes to give away. If your name is in the list below, that means you won something in my drawing! Please contact me (form below) so we can figure out how to get a prize to you.
Once again, thank you for watching Your lie in April with me this month.
Congratulations to everyone who won! The names aren’t in any particular order, but it’s probably the order in which I saw your comments.
