Last week, studio Lerche released the first of four teasers for its upcoming boys’ love anime Given. The teaser series, entitled ”talk to_PV” will feature all four main characters of the anime in four weeks, with last week’s teaser focusing on Mafuyu Sato.
As promised, this week we get a new teaser, this time featuring Mafuyu’s love interest and guitar mentor Ritsuka Uenoyama. Like Mafuyu, we get to hear Ritsuka’s seiyuu Yuuma Uchida in character for the first time as well. Check out the 15-second teaser below!
With the main couple Mafuyu and Ritsuka already introduced, this means that the last two trailers will feature the secondary couple Haruki and Akihiko.
Below are the confirmed cast members for the series:
• Mafuyu Sato (guitarist & vocalist)– VA. Shougo Yano (Shingo Sawatari from Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc V)
• Ritsuka Uenoyama (guitarist) – VA. Yuuma 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)
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.
Given will be the first-ever BL anime to be aired in Fuji TV’s late-night Noitamina anime block. 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. Given is slated for a July release.
