Adachi Mutters Confused Feelings toward Shimamura in Fall TV Anime Adachi and Shimamura Character PV
Tezuka Production-animated sweet yuri story begins broadcasting in Japan on October 8
The official website for the forthcoming TV anime adaptation of Hitoma Iruma's light novel Adachi to Shimamura / Adachi and Shimamura has released a 45-second character PV focusing on one of its two title characters, Sakura Adachi (CV: Akari Kito). In the clip, she mutters her confused feeling toward another title character, Hougetsu Shimamura (Miku Ito).
"'It's my turn to serve next, OK?' Shimamura is Shimamura. Maybe she will always be Shimamura in my mind. For some reason, Shimamura seems to think that I am more beautiful than her. That's a big misunderstanding. From my eyes, Shimamura is much prettier than me. I'm not THAT kind of person. Maybe it's an expression of my desire to get to know Shimamura a little better. So this is definitely not THAT kind of thing. 'No, no way!'"
The yuri-themed TV anime directed by Satoshi Kuwabara (The Quintessential Quintuplets) and animated by Tezuka Production is set to premiere on TBS on October 8, 2020, then on BS11 one day later.
