“Your Lie In April” Author Illustrates “Occultic;Nine” End Card

This season’s anime adaptation of Chiyomaru Shikura’s “paranormal science” novel Occultic;Nine has largely featured end-card illustrations by people involved with the production (with at least one VERY interesting resulting contribution), but this week’s had a special guest. From A-Pictures/Aniplex cousin Your Lie In April comes a contribution by that series’ original manga author, Naoshi Arakawa.
