The title of the series is Your Lie in April (Japanese: Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso).

What was the lie? What was the reason for the lie?

  • Would you please identify which scene you are referring to? The title can be explained since the last chapter is already out, but I can't find your reference.

  • Would you mind changing your question to ask the meaning of the title? The conversation "This will be our lie." didn't seem to happen. (You might want to ask a new question about it when you found the context, or edit it back in if the question is the same)

    @nhahtdh I don't mind it if you do edit the whole thing. I would go even further and ask you to do it, because you seem to have a better picture in mind than me. Also, I promise to go back and re-watch the first two episodes once my emotional scars heal a bit more.

  • It's quite a destructive edit. I can't find anyway to phrase it better, since at the time you ask the question, there wasn't any clear reference to a lie (except for one talking about the music in episode 5).

  • @nhahtdh nah, its fine. At the time of the asking, I had no idea how deep the meaning of the title was.

I believe the lie was that Kaori lied about being in love with Watari.

On page 13 of Chapter 44. She says in her letter "This lie was that Miyazono Kaori had feelings for Watari Ryouta". She was secretly in love with Arima but didn't want to break the relationships between Arima and Tsubaki.

There are two "lies" that I can see in the last parts:

1. The lie is the promise between Kousei and Kaori "Let's play again together"
2. Kaori lied that she liked Watari at the beginning of the series


The real lie is that she never got to play with him again. As a child, she fell in love with him when she saw him play, and her dream was to one day stand by his side and play along with him. She managed to achieve her dream and play on the same stage along with him. After that she promised to do it again with him, but she died before it could happen.
