So what are the chances this thing gets ANY kind of satisfactory resolution after 18 (12 regular + 6 OVA) episodes given that the manga ran for 18 YEARS?

Others are concerned about the inevitable heartbreak/turmoil; I'm just worried this gem is going to become yet another 1-season wonder...

Manga has 11 takubon with 113 chapters scènes
In order to complete the story it needs an average of 6.277... scènes per episode.

Just found out Haru's seiyuu (Yume Miyamoto) also voiced Rikka in SSSS.Gridman. Neat.

My bad I guess Manga was released in late 90s and they are following it pretty closely?


started in 1998 and ended in 2015

Because of my ancient age I remember rotary phones playing major roles in anime no answering machine or a busy signal when dialing something my son has no idea how to experience but can be key plot points especially romance genre

I've only seen the first episode so far (I was hesitant to continue because of the current situation) but when I decided to watch it I looked up the manga to get a vague idea of how it ends (I am no romance fan and not ready to commit to something with a shitty ending) and if it gets a full adaptation. 113 chapters look like a lot but the chapters are rather short. Often less than 20 pages of content and I assume there are things they can leave out without missing anything. 18 episodes can be enough to make a satisfying full adaptation in my opinion.

What seems off is 12 episodes on CR and 6 OVAs on another license is what MAL says in discussion thread not sure how thats going to work?

That worried me at first as well but there are speculations that it's like this because they realized they couldn't make this into 24 episodes and instead of butchering the pacing, they decided to go with one regular season and 6 OVAs. I'm not sure how realistic that speculation is but I hope it's true.

Now, ReLIFE is much (much much) shorter than "Yesterday" supposedly is, but it did a pretty solid job of introducing the series in a season and then finished things up with an edited version of what happened in the rest of the source material in a set of OVAs. I wouldn't give up hope.. yet.

What a good show, I like all the characters. They're all sucking me in with all their problems. Haru should be upset Rikuo came to the cafe, the barmaid might just make me forget about the other two if I was him.

Pretty sure rotary phone service was gone in the early 90's in the US.

My Grandmother had a rotary in the 80s though.

My family had a rotary phone until like 1995. It's definitely pre-cellphone era.



The phones threw me off too.
I still have a rotary phone in the basement, pretty sure I still used it in the 2000's (I bought the house I grew up in), I just assumed it still worked, I'll have to test it tomorrow.

Did you try to call someone? A rotary phone uses cliks i the line to swich relais. I wonder if those relays are still there. Maybe they where substituted by computers that "understand" those clicks as well.

The phone itself probably still works. There isn't that much stuff in them that would break with time, as long as it is stored in a dark place that doesn't get to hot.
