The staff of the television anime adaptation of Naoshi Arakawa's Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso (April is Your Lie) manga unveiled the anime's second promotional video and first TV spot during the anime's cast announcement conference that was held live over Niconico on Thursday.

Kōse: This is nothing. Piece of cake. I've always been holing up ever since I was a kid, so I've gotten used to it.
Kaori: Nationality or breeding have nothing to with music! Let's do it with everyone!
Kaori: Meow!
Tsubaki: Geez, that is such a boring reaction!
Tsubaki: Just what is your youth!? The spring of your 14th year won't come back again, you know!?
Ryōta: Houses right next to each other, friends since childhood? You seek each other, no matter where you are!
Kōse & Tsubaki: We're not a married couple!
Tsubaki: An hour for just a little ruckus?
Ryōta: You're lucky it was just an hour.
Kōse: I'd like you to try being in my shoes. I had to tag along with you for an hour.
Tsubaki: What about you, Kōse?
Kōse: Hm?
Tsubaki: Do you have a girl you like?
Kōse: There's no one who would fall in love with me.
Kōse: Wait... What did they call this emotion again...? What did they call this feeling...? You're... Inside of spring.
Kaori: I'm a violinist!
Kōse: In the spring of my 14th year, I run ahead with you.

Text: His life that was monochrome

The videos feature some of the newly-announced cast that includes:



Risa Taneda as Kaori Miyazono



Ayane Sakura as Tsubaki Sawabe



Ryota Ohsaka as Ryōta Watari



Yuuki Kaji as Takeshi Aiza



Saori Hayami as Emi Igawa



The new cast will be joining Natsuki Hanae as Kōsei Arima.

Kyōhei Ishiguro (Fairy Tail, Psycho-Pass episode director) is directing the anime at A-1 Pictures off scripts by Takao Yoshioka (High School DxD, WATAMOTE). Yukiko Aikei (Accel World, Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere) is serving as character designer and chief animation director. Masaru Yokoyama (Queen's Blade, Freezing Vibration) is composing the music, while Jin Aketagawa (High School DxD, anohana) is sound director.

The manga debuted in Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Magazine in 2011, and the eighth compiled volume shipped in Japan this past January. The series won the Best Shōnen Manga category in Kodansha's 37th Annual Manga Awards last year.

Kōsei Arima is a former child prodigy who lost his ability to play the piano when his mother died. His daily life is monochrome, but it begins to gain color when he meets a female violinist by chance. Kaori Miyazono is an audacious go-getter who is overflowing with personality. Enchanted by the girl, Kōsei starts to move forward with his own legs at the age of 14.
