In Japan, the romantic manga series “Your Lie in April,” also known as “Shigatsu Wa Kimi No Uso,” enjoys a cult following. The show is based on the Naoshi Arakawa comic book series, a dramatic comedy.
A one-movie adaptation was released in 2015 by A-1 Pictures following the 2014 release of the series adaptation. Because of its heartwarming romantic drama, ‘Your Lie in April’ has become a fan favorite.
It’s a no-brainer why it’s so popular. Romance and music are nicely intertwined in the anime’s story. We haven’t heard anything about one of our favorite romantic comedies in a long time. Season 2 news has been eagerly awaited by many for many years. Has it yet arrived?
Your Lie in April Season 2 Plot
Because of his remarkable piano abilities, Kousei Arima has earned the moniker “human metronome” among his peers and professors.
The terrible death of Kousei’s mother, his primary inspiration for music, has left the young musician unable to hear or feel his own music. In the end, he decides to give up his career as a musician and start a new one, leaving his former glory behind.
The commitment Kousei made to never return to his previous life of admirers and rivals has stood the test of time. As an alternative, he hangs out with Ryouta Watari and Tsubaki Sawabe, two of his closest pals, in a drab, grey environment.
Only after meeting Kaori Miyazono, who is an equally talented musician, does his life begin to change. After being inspired by her, he rediscovers his long-dormant passion for music. His life begins to take on new energy and he rediscovers his former sense of direction.
The story revolves around the protagonist, Arima, and his quest to reconcile his past with his present, which has ramifications for the rest of his life. Though it’s taking him some time to come to terms with what he’s witnessed, his desire to move forward is undimmed.
Obviously, a program about adolescence needs a strong relationship between the protagonist and the audience. The main plot of the play centers around this friendship, which eventually degenerates into other subplots. At this point, the animation begins to stutter and reveal its defects.
The show is dragged to a climax that could have been achieved in 15 episodes by these superfluous subplots. In spite of this, the finale is more than enough to make up for this, and the very thought of it makes me want to curl up and weep.
Even if the anime gets a few more episodes, a full season is quite unlikely, as previously said. So instead of beating ourselves up about it, we should learn to appreciate the anime’s happy and clear finale for what it is.
Your Lie in April Season 2 Cast
We can expect season 1’s main cast to return if the story continues the cast will include:
- Erica Lindbeck as Kaori Miyazono

Your Lie in April Season 2 Release Date
However, there was no evidence of a second season of Your Lie in April when it was released in 2014. The series ended with Kaori’s death and its aftermath, which was also featured in the movie and musical versions.
Fans, on the other hand, are eagerly anticipating Season 2 to see how Kosei’s career settles down.
If everything has already been addressed, then there won’t be another season of Your Lie in April any time soon, based on the author’s claims. She said she wasn’t sick when she was lying in April about wanting someone else and not being sick at the same time.
So, Your Lie in April season 2 may not be coming back unless a fantastic plot comes along for the show’s creator, which is unlikely.
