Given Anime VisualGiven hits Japanese TV in July.

Natsuki Kizu’s Given manga launched in Shinshokan’s Cheri+ magazine in April 2013. The series currently spans four compiled volumes, with the fifth slated to hit stores on April 1.

Manga resource Baka-Updates describes the title as:

It’s stuck deep inside me and I can’t get it out of my head. Mafuyu’s voice is an insane and dangerous weapon.

That day, I started to feel that playing the guitar and playing basketball, both of which I liked very much previously, was becoming boring.

Uenoyama meets Mafuyu who’s holding onto a broken guitar. The moment Uenoyama finishes fixing the guitar, Mafuyu becomes completely attached to him. However, hearing Mafuyu’s song by chance leaves a deep impression on Uenoyama. An alternative love drawn by Kizu Natsuki!
