A huge fan base has congregated around anime these days and especially Japanese Anime Shows. Your Lie in April is one such series with a massive fan following. It is known as ‘Shigatsu Wa Kimi No Uso‘ in Japanese and is a romantic anime series. It has adapted its story from a dramatic comedy manga that has been created and illustrated by Naoshi Arakawa. In this article, we shall discuss Your Lie in April Season 2 and its renewal.
This adaptation was produced in the year 2014 by A-1 Pictures and was followed by an OVA a year after that, that is 2015. The series follows an enchanting and delightful story which is the perfect combination of romance and melodies. One of the reasons that the series has been a favorite among its fans is the heart-warming romantic drama. Romantic dramas are loved the most in anime by the audience.
The storyline of Your Lie in April Season 1
The story revolves around a Piano child prodigy, Kousei Arima, who played amazing Piano and had proved himself a very skilled Pianist before he lost his mother tragically. His mother was his support system and his mentor in the skill and he suffered a shock after the death of his mother because of which he had a mental breakdown while playing in a recital at the age of 12. As a result, unfortunately, he could not hear the sound of his own Piano playing and he ultimately stops playing Piano.
But two years later, a girl comes into his life, and his life changes. He was living his life in despair and discolor with the support of his two friends, Tsubaki and Watari. But when he meets the girl, Kaori Miyazono, a free-spirited violinist, whose manic behavior matches exactly with her way of playing, he is helped by her to return to the music world. She makes him realize that his world should be mold-breaking and free and not like the hard and rigid one he is keeping himself in.
Then eventually, with Kaori helping Kousei, they both start falling for each other. But they have to face a lot of problems in overcoming Kousei’s issue as well as in their love life because of some people.
Has the series been renewed for a Season 2?
It has been a long since the Season 1 of the series was aired. Fans have been waiting for news or update about Your Lie in April Season 2 for a high time for some reason. But the question is, has Your Lie in April been really renewed for the production of Season 2?
There have been a lot of rumors about the second season in recent times. But if anyone searches on the internet, they do not get accurate and appropriate information about it. And also, nothing at all has been officially confirmed by the creators, directors, or producers of the anime at present or before.
This might be because the anime was precisely wrapped up with a conclusion of the first season and there were no cliffhangers or loose ends or climaxes to be explored for the second season. But no one knows what is going on or will be going on in the directors’ minds for the show. Maybe it is decided that there will be Your Lie in April Season 2 before 2022 ends and thus we will get to see the show in late 2023.
What is the expected plot if Your Lie in April Season 2 arrives?
Season 1 concluded with the death of Kaori and the aftermath of it and the effect of it on Kosei. So we are guessing that the second season will be showing the career of Kousei moving forward. According to the writer, almost much of the plot has been covered in the first season. So until and unless the writer gets a new idea for the plot, there might be no Season 2 for the series.
Although, we can also expect some bonus episodes in the form of OVAs. Because the directors can sense the feeling that has been left among the fans for the show after Kaori’s death in the series and they won’t leave the show with an incomplete success story of the main character. And also, fan-fiction is an option always for the resurrection and renewal of Your Lie in April Season 2.
Expected Cast of Your Lie in April Season 2
If Your Lie in April Season 2 returns, the main cast is expected to return for the show except for Erica Lindbeck as Kaori Miyazono because she dies in the first season. The cast will include:
Max Mittleman as Arima Kousei, Erica Mendez as Tsubaki Sawabe, Kyle McCarley as Ryouta Watari, Amanda C. Miller as Toshia Miike, Carrie Keranen as Hiroko Seto, Ristina Valenzuela as Koharu Seto, Dorothy Elias-Fahn as Yoshiko Ochiai, Erik Scott Kimerer as Takeshi Aiza, Erika Harlacher as Emi Agawa Juli and Ann Taylor as Nao Kashiwagi.
