Manga artist Naoshi Arakawa made his debut in 2007 with Tsumetai Kousha no Toki wa Tomaru (The Time Stops on a Frozen Campus), a manga adaptation of the mystery novel by Mizuki Tsujimura. After finishing his original soccer series in 2010, Sayonara Football, he started his most renowned work, Your Lie in April-a series about the lives of young, talented classical musicians. In 2013, Your Lie in April won the Kodansha Manga Award and was then adapted into an anime series the following year. A live-action movie will also be released later this fall. He is currently preparing to launch a brand new series in Monthly Shonen Magazine.
