2015's February issue of Kodansha's Gekkan Shonen Magazine will announce on January 6 that Naoshi Arakawa's manga Your Lie in April (Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso) will end in the magazine's next issue on February 6.

Kodansha Comics licensed the series and plans to release the first volume this coming spring. The company describes the story:

Kosei Arima was a piano prodigy until his cruel taskmaster of a mother died suddenly, changing his life forever. Driven by his pain to abandon piano, Kosei now lives in a monotonous, colorless world. Having resigned himself to a bland life, he is surprised when he meets Kaori Miyazono, a violinist with an unorthodox style. Can she teach Kosei not just how to play, but how to start living again?

The manga debuted in Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Magazine in 2011, and the 10th compiled volume shipped in Japan on October 17. The 11th volume will ship in May with an OVA episode. The series won the Best Shōnen Manga category in Kodansha's 37th Annual Manga Awards last year.

Aniplex Channel, Hulu and Crunchyroll are currently streaming the television anime adaptation as it airs in Japan.
