Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso (April is Your Lie)
Manga Adaptation

Synopsis
Piano prodigy Arima Kosei dominated the competition and all child musicians knew his name. But after his mother, who was also his instructor, passed away, he had a mental breakdown while performing at a recital that resulted in him no longer being able to hear the sound of his piano even though his hearing was perfectly fine. Even two years later, Kosei hasn't touched the piano and views the world in monotone, and without any flair or color. He was content at living out his life with his good friends Tsubaki and Watari until, one day, a girl changed everything. Miyazono Kaori is a pretty, free spirited violinist whose playing style reflects her personality. Kaori helps Kosei return to the music world and show that it should be free and mold breaking unlike the structured and rigid style Kosei was used to. (Source: MangaHelpers)

NoitaminA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH! Except for the last anime, I'll be watching all of these. <3

I pray hard that Zankyou no Terror sells well. We need more anime like that. Yes, I haven't seen it yet, but the character designs and the music has won me over.

And finally more info on Psycho Pass!

I think it should be noted that the Psycho-pass re-broadcast is a edited version(to make it fit 1-cour).

>Zankyou no Terror
+ Watanabe, Kanno, looks good visually, terrorism as a theme
- "Game premise", highschoolers as main characters

>Psycho-Pass 2
+ May tie up loose ends and be more coherent than S1
- May focus more on pretentious quotes than actual depth, like S1

>Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso
+ Decent premise, A-1 doing SoL
- Nothing so far

>Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata
+ Nothing
- Light Novel, otaku + highschool protagonists, focus on otaku themes, harem

The lineup post is also misisng the movie adaption of a Project Itoh novel, which looks to be fairly interesting.
Overall hit and miss, sadly noitaminA after 2011 is always like this.

I'm always happy to see more noitaminA.

I'll def. watch Terror in Tokyo.

Shigatsu... sounds like a good slice-of-life story.

Psycho-Pass 2 - gonna watch it, if I'll finally complete the first season.

Not so sure about the Heroine, tho I hope they will be able to create something fresh.

Great line-up. I am very much looking forward to Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso. I have really enjoyed what I've read of the manga so far. If this does well, perhaps maybe we can get a sequel to the Piano no Mori movie.

I'll definitely watch Zankyo No Terror right away. Sounds good.

Too bad I'll probably be abroad in fall, but as soon as I'll come home I'll watch Psycho Pass 2 and Shigatsu too (actually I didn't even know Shigatsu was going to have an anime adaptation... cool!)

Thanks but no, thanks, for Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata.

I'm actually way more hyped for Saenai Heroine than the rest of them since I love the relationship dynamics between Tomoyo and Eriri, and I love finding out about how the manga/eroge/LN industry works and the struggles of being a doujin artist.

But no one else will want to watch it as they'll immediately think that it's just another shitty harem romcom LN adaptation.

Tonight... we are young... so let's set the world on fire, we can burn brighter, than the sun...

Glad that Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso will get an anime adaption. I read a few chapters a while ago and I thought it's quite enjoyable.
Zankyou no Terror looks interesting too, specially because Watanabe is in charge of the direction.

Great lineup. I know I'll be watching them all but Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso particularly stands out from those imo.

I wonder how much PP will be edited for the summer version though.

noitaminA all day... except for the last one.

About all the others I'm looking forward to see how well they perform, they all seem interesting and since Psycho-Pass is the one I'm waiting since a long time ago, I'm really excited.

I'll be watching Zankyou no Terror and Shigatsu wa Kimi no uso for sure. I'm not really interested in Saenai and I won't watch Psycho-Pass 2 because I haven't seen the first.

Correction, I watched 1 episode of Psycho-Pass, but it was pretty boring so I didn't continue.

Hmm, Zankyou no Terror's story looks cool. Hope the show isn't like Cooplen or whatever that spelled doesn't have too much drama with high school stuff which makes me not to watch that.

Hope 2nd season of psycho-pass will be better.

Holy shit! In for Psycho-Pass. Can't wait for the second season. Between this, Fate/Stay Night, and Aldnoah.zero I'll be set for the year. Wake me up when it's October. Also, hopefully Gen Urobuchi is back for both the new season and movie.

Oh yeah, might watch the edited version of the first season depending on how much is changed.

Well, there's nothing we can do about it. NoitaminA has to survive and it pains me to say this but the usual shows they have(Gin no Saji,Samurai Flamenco, Sakamichi no Apollon) were bombs.

I read the first chapter of the manga(Saenai) and I'm gonna pass but complaining isn't going to get me anywhere.

If anything, if you want the 'old' NoitaminA back, start praying right now that Zankyou no Terror and Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso sell well. ZnT was made by the same people who made Sakamichi no Apollon which sold much less than their next short tennis anime Teekyuu!. That says something right? KimiUso is something I'm almost sure will bomb since it sounds too much like a shoujo and the art is shoujo-ish but hopefully it gets a good manga boost.

This turned out longer than I expected.

Zankyou no Terror sounds like it can be awesome, or then something like Coppelion...

Shigatsu wa kimi no uso sounds like Nodame Cantabile, how great! But it's shonen, so I'm wondering how it will be like.

I just saw the trailer of Saenai Heroine, and would have never guessed that it's a noitaminA anime! Seemed like some generic otaku/moe/eroge stuff. But the synopsis sounds quite good, so I think I'll be watching

Wow, I think I should have expected a Saenai adaptation at some point, considering the godly Misaki art. And, gasp, Maruto can actually write dialogue and characters (!!!).

I'll probably watch it just because, but the designs certainly aren't going to be done justice. I don't know what it means at this point when only an LN adaptation interests me but whatever.

Hmm, Psycho Pass 2 is only one cour? I hope that'll be enough. I'm really curious where they're gonna go with it. I'll probably end up watching the recut too.

Zankyou no Terror could be interesting, matters on how they portray it. Shigatsu wa kimi no Uso looks like it could be a good romance. I'll watch both of them.

Saenai Heroine looks awful, tbh, especially after watching the disgusting PV. I'm a bit disappointed that something like that's airing on noitaminA.

Zankyou no Terror - Sounds very interesting, Yoko Kanno doing the music is fantastic

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - The one I am most looking forward to, love music caught my attention rather quickly and the PV was gorgeous

Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata - LN adaptation so instant watch if I like the premise and I do, love the art as well so I'm in

Hoping these will be good, last noitaminA show I really cared for was Robotics;Notes, this springs lineup looks great as well.

Zankyou no Terror
As is often the case, the staff's names piqued my interest. Sounds promising.

Psycho-Pass 2
This is another of those series I could have accepted ending with one season only. But since there *were* a few loose ends in the first one, a sequel might not hurt.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso (April is Your Lie)
Manga
This one actually sounds awesome. Seeing A-1's name there stings a little, but those guys did anohana after all, so they can probably handle this show just fine.

Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata (How Not to Raise a Heroine)
Light Novel
Yeah, no.

Ahh yes I am too excited about everything. I'm a bit unsure on Saenai Heroine no Sodate-kata, though. I think I read a first few chapters (of the manga) and it was pretty funny and interesting but I didn't continue since. Kind of forgettable. But we'll see.

EDIT: I've heard that the scenarist for White Album 2's VN wrote the novel, though? Can anyone confirm this for me?

EDIT (again): I found out and the author is apparently the person in charge of series composition for WA2. Which arouses my interest.

I had such a good time watching Psycho-Pass and I hope this clears up some questions from that first season.

Zankyou no Terror pv peaked my interest looking forward to this.

Even the music anime sounds good.

I see. So, how many do you think they will adapting? I imagine this is going to be 1-cour, so i guess that with the first 3 volumes they could have a really nice pacing. What do you think?

I'm thinking it will be 4. Most Fantasia Bunko series that get anime adaptations seem to have 4 volumes per season of anime.
