“The spring of my 14th year – you changed my world…”
A boy, who felt empty each day, meets a girl.
Her free and heartfelt musical performance restores the color back into the boy’s life.
On his 11th winter, Kousei Arima, a piano prodigy suffered from the trauma of losing his beloved mother. He was unable to hear the sounds he was playing. Since then, the boy began to distance himself from the piano. With his mother and the piano both gone from his life, the boy’s days became dull and monotonous.
One day, Kousei’s childhood friend Tsubaki Sawabe introduces him to her classmate. Her name was Kaori Miyazono. Kaori was a violinist who often performed at competitions. But her performance was nothing Kousei had imagined. Free, powerful, and passionate—Kaori’s music did not follow the regulations of the competition at all. Kousei was immediately enthralled by Kaori’s bold performance. The boy began seeing color being restored to his life.
“I had a horrible first impression of her, she had a violently short-temper and terrible personality…but…she is…absolutely beautiful.”
The boy and the girl are brought together by music. Can the heartfelt sounds of the girl’s violin lead the boy to play the piano again?
