Three months prior to its premiere in Japan, the official website for the forthcoming TV anime adaptation of Hitoma Iruma's light novel Adachi to Shimamura / Adachi and Shimamura has posted a five-minute sound-only preview video for its OP theme "Kimi ni Aeta Hi" (The day I was able to meet you) performed by the two title characters: Sakura Adachi (CV: Akari Kito) and Hougetsu Shimamura (Miku Ito). The video also includes a preview for the OP theme single's coupling song "Merry-Go-Round" also sung by the two.
The opening theme is written by Ugui and composed by MAH, who are the ex-members of SHAKALABBITS and the current members of Muvidat. Its lyrics express the two girls' secret felling of needing each other, which is the main theme of the story. The CD single will be available in Japan on October 28, 2020.
