Aniplex of America streamed Your Lie in April on the Aniplex Channel, Hulu, and Crunchyroll. Naoshi Arakawa's original shōnen manga that inspired the anime follows Kōsei Arima, 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.
Kyōhei Ishiguro (Fairy Tail, Psycho-Pass episode director) directed 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) served as character designer and chief animation director. Masaru Yokoyama (Queen's Blade, Freezing Vibration) composed the music, while Jin Aketagawa (High School DxD, anohana) served as sound director.
