What Was Kaori’s Illness?

What Was Kaori’s Illness?

Read this article only if you have completed the entire series.

If you are reading this then you have already completed Shigatsu Wa Kimi No Uso, one of the most heart-breaking and depressing anime ever created. Just like you saw it, and how much depressing it is;

Kaori dies at the end of the series. Well the cause for her death was most likely operation failure, of course if she hadn’t been operated she would have eventually died and at this time it can be said that the illness itself killed her rather than the operation.

But the question here is, what was the operation for and what is her illness that was to be operated on?

Kaori Miyazono Death

First let’s start with some symptoms that Kaori has indicated:

1. She collapsed after performing on stage with Kousei Arima.

2. She was unable to control her legs when she was admitted in the hospital for second time.

3. Change in her skin colour.


And after she had collapsed for the first time, she was asked if this had happened before; to which she simply said that it was indeed her first time and she has always been a little anaemic.

But do you think it was just Anaemic that was her fatal illness. Most types of Anaemia are easily treatable.

Ok Here’s Kaori’s illness. First let’s see if the symptoms of this illness match with that of Kaori’s.

  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath with exertion
  • Rapid or irregular heart rate
  • Pale skin
  • Frequent or prolonged infections
  • Unexplained or easy bruising
  • Nosebleeds and bleeding gums
  • Prolonged bleeding from cuts
  • Skin rash
  • Dizziness
  • Headache

Yeah Kaori seemed to have most of these symptoms except Nosebleeds, bleeding gums and skin rash.

The name of this illness is Aplastic anemia. Yeah you heard it right!! Remember when she said she has always been a little anaemic. So maybe she was indicating to a higher complex of anaemia called Aplastic Anaemic.
