The official website for the television anime of Kei Toume's Sing "Yesterday" for Me (Yesterday o Utatte) manga revealed the staff, visual, and spring 2020 premiere date for the anime on Wednesday.
Yoshiyuki Fujiwara (GJ Club, New Game!, Plastic Memories) is directing the anime at Doga Kobo. Jin Tanaka (Laid-Back Camp, Kirakira ☆ Precure a la Mode, Cinderella Nine) is penning the scripts.

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.
