Saori Hayami sings opening, ending theme songs for series

The official website for the television anime adaptation of Ryoko Fukuyama's shōjo manga Anonymous Noise (Fukumenkei Noise) began streaming a new promotional video on Saturday. The video highlights childhood scenes of the anime's main characters and previews some of the music from the series.

The video also reveals that the band "in NO hurry to shout," the name of the main characters' band in the series, will be performing both the anime's opening theme song "High School" and the ending theme song "Allegro." Saori Hayami, the voice actress for the anime's protagonist Nino, will provide the vocals for both songs.

The anime's world premiere will be held at Anime Boston on April 1. The series will premiere in Japan on Tokyo MX on Tuesday, April 11 at 11:00 p.m., and also air on Kansai TV and BS Fuji. Sentai Filmworks will simulcast the series.

Hideya Takahashi (Keijo!!!!!!!!, Fantasista Stella) is directing the series at Brains Base (Natsume's Book of Friends, Durarara!!). Deko Akao (Snow White with the Red Hair, Noragami) is in charge of the series composition, and Mariko Itou is designing the characters for animation and serving as chief animation director. Sadesper Records (Narasaki / Watchman) is in charge of the music.

The cast includes:

  • Saori Hayami as Nino
  • Daiki Yamashita as Yuzu
  • Kouki Uchiyama as Momo
  • Daisuke Ono as Haruyoshi
  • Ayahi Takagaki as Miō
  • Jun Fukuyama as Kuro

The manga is also inspiring a live-action film that will premiere in Japan on November 25.

Sentai Filmworks describes the story:

Blessed with a beautiful voice, Nino only sings for one reason: to be found. Nino finds herself looking for two boys who left her without reason, Momo and Yuzu. By chance, all three of them end up in the same high school, and Nino discovers that her singing isn't in vain. As they rediscover their bonds, the group realizes that time changes many things, and sometimes certain things can't be repaired.

Viz Media is publishing the manga in North America. Fukuyama launched the series in Hakusensha's Hana to Yume magazine in April 2013. Hakusensha published the 12th volume on March 20.
