Watch the First 6 Minutes of TV Anime Sing "Yesterday" for Me

Doga Kobo-animated adaptation will premiere in Japan on April 4, 2020



The official YouTube channel for the forthcoming TV anime Yesterday wo Utatte (Sing "Yesterday" for Me) has started streaming a ten-minute special trailer including the six-minute beginning part of its first episode and a digest of the dialogues between the characters.


The clip also introduces the anime's OP song "Kago no naka ni Tori" (There's a bird in a cage) performed by four-member rock band Yourness. This is the first time that the band has provided a theme song for an anime series.  


The adaptation of Kei Toume's drama manga series directed by Yoshiyuki Fujiwara (NEW GAME!!) is set to premiere for a 12-episode run on TV Asahi's newly-launched midnight programming block "NUMAnimation" on April 4, 2020. 


The original manga was first serialized in Shueisha's Business Jump from 1997 to 2011, then moved to the publisher's Grand Jump and concluded in 2015 with 11 tankobon volumes. Its story centers on Rikuo Uozume, who doesn't/can't find a regular job after graduating from university and has worked as a part-time worker at a convenience store, and follows a love triangle among him and two heroines, Haru Nonaka and Shinako Morinome.
