Amazon is listing the digital version of this year's 10th issue of Shueisha's Grand Jump magazine with the cover, which reveals that Kei Toume's Sing "Yesterday" for Me (Yesterday o Utatte) manga is inspiring a television anime adaptation. Both the physical and digital versions of the magazine are slated for April 17.

The coming-of-age story follows a university graduate named Rikuo who has not been able to find permanent employment after college, a mysterious woman named Haru who has a pet crow, and Rikuo's former university classmate Shinako.

Toume launched the manga in Business Jump in 1997, and the manga switched to Grand Jump with the magazine's inaugural issue in November 2011. Toume ended the manga in June 2015. Shueisha published 11 compiled book volumes for the manga.

Tokyopop published Toume's Lament of the Lamb manga in English. Lament of the Lamb inspired a four-episode original video animation (OVA) in 2003. Toume launched Kūden Noise no Himegimi (Static Noise Princess) in Gentosha's Comic Birz magazine in July 2016, and Gentosha published the third compiled volume on January 24. Comic Birz ended serialization last June. The manga relaunched in Kodansha's Evening magazine on January 9 as a continuation with the new title Kūden no Himegimi (Static Princess).

Toume also plans to launch a new manga titled Hōkago Cinema (After School Cinema) in Gentosha's Comic Boost manga website. The manga was originally slated to launch in March, but it has not yet launched.
