Kodoani.com – Official website of the anime film sequel based on the manga Given by Natsuki Kizu announced on Friday that the series will have two parts. The site also streamed a retrospective video about the series:
The manga’s television anime adaptation premiered on Fuji TV’s Noitamina in July 2019. The anime is the “first anime based on a boy love manga” to air on Noitamina. Crunchyroll describes the story:
Somehow, the guitar he once loved to play and the joy from playing basketball have lost their appeal… Until Ritsuka Uenoyama accidentally meets Mafuyu Sato. Ritsuka has begun to lose his passion for music in his daily life, but then he hears Mafuyu singing for the first time. The song resonates in their hearts and the distance between them begins to change.”
An anime film based on the manga “Given” was released in Japan in May 2020.
Additionally, an anime disc titled “Given: Uragawa no Sonzai” (Given – on the other hand), focusing on Mafuyu and Ritsuka during the events of the movie “Given,” was released with the limited edition of the manga’s seventh volume in December 2021.
Natsuki Kizu launched the “Given” manga in Shinshokan’s Cheri+ magazine in 2014. Shinshokan published the manga’s eighth compiled book volume in October 2022. The manga ended on March 30.
