Your Lie in April Creator Naoshi Arakawa's 'Farewell, My Dear Cramer' Anime Unveils Teaser

Soccer anime film, TV anime slated for April

The official website for the anime project for Naoshi Arakawa's Farewell, My Dear Cramer (Sayonara Watashi no Cramer) manga unveiled a teaser trailer and a visual for the project on Friday.

The teaser visual teases the project's two timelines, the second year of middle school (left in image above), and the first year of high school (right).

The project will consist of both an anime film adaptation and a television anime adaptation, both of which will debut in Japan in April 2021.

The movie is titled Eiga Sayonara Watashi no Cramer First Touch, and the story will adapt Arakawa's previous two-volume Sayonara, Football manga, which followed Nozomi in junior high school.

The cast includes:

Seiki Takuno is directing the anime at LIDEN FILMS, and Natsuko Takahashi is writing the script. Toei is distributing the anime.

Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga digitally simultaneously with its Japanese release, and also plans to release the manga in print. The company describes the manga:

With no soccer accomplishments to speak of during the entirety of Sumire Suo's junior high school years, the young wing gets an odd offer. Suo's main rival, Midori Soshizaki, invites her to join up on the same team in high school, with a promise that she'll never let Suo “play alone.” It's an earnest offer, but the question is whether Suo will take her up on it. Thus the curtain opens on a story that collects an enormous cast of individual soccer-playing personalities!

Arakawa launched the manga in May 2016. Kodansha published the manga's 12th volume in Japan on June 17.

Arakawa's Your Lie in April manga inspired a 22-episode television anime series that premiered in October 2014, and Aniplex of America released the series on home video. The manga also inspired a live-action film that opened in September 2016. Kodansha Comics released the original manga in English.
