In a first for Fuji TV’s late night anime programming block Noitamina, the timeslot will be dedicated to a BL (boys’ love) anime: an adaptation of Natsuki Kizu’s manga Given.
The story centers on Ritsuka, a once-avid guitarist who has lost interest in the instrument. He then meets Mafuyu, who is holding on to a broken guitar. Perplexed by this, Ritsuka offers to fix his guitar and teaches him to play it as well. When he hears Mafuyu singing, however, Ritsuka starts to feel something different.
The following are the confirmed cast for main band members:
• Mafuyu Sato (guitarist & vocalist)– VA. Shougo Yano (Shingo Sawatari from Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc V)
• Ritsuka Uenoyama (guitarist) – VA. Yuma Uchida (Ash Lynx from Banana Fish)
• Haruki Nakayama (bassist) – VA. Masatomo Nakazawa (Clear from DRAMAtical Murder)
• Akihiko Kaji (drummer) – VA. Takuya Eguchi (Shinji Koganei from Kuroko no Basket)
Check out the trailer below!
The upcoming BL anime will be animated by studio Lerche (Scum’s Wish, Konohana Kitan), with Hikaru Yamaguchi helming the show as its director. Yuniko Ayana (both seasons of BanG Dream!) will be in charge of the series composition and scripts.
