The main promotional video has been released for upcoming comedy anime 4-Nin wa Sorezore Uso wo Tsuku (English: The Little Lies We All Tell), which is scheduled to air on ABC TV and TV Asahi's ANiMAZiNG!!! programming block this Oct. 15, 2022.
The show is animated by Studio Flad, with assistance from Studio Pierrot.
4-Nin wa Sorezore Uso wo Tsuku is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Madoka Kashihara. It has been serialized in Kodansha's shōnen manga magazine Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine since April 2020.
The story features four friends (Rikka, Chiyo, Sekine, and Tsubasa) attending the same all-girls school. At first glance, they appear to be ordinary second-year junior high students, but they actually possess their own respective secrets. One is an alien, one is a ninja, the other a psychic, and the last a cross-dresser.
The main PV also features the opening theme song Eclipse by NACHERRY.
