Adachi to Shimamura

Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

The second floor of the gym – this was where we always met. It was class time, but of course, there weren’t any classes going on in a place like this.

This was where Shimamura and I became friends. We hung out here – talking about TV shows and cooking, playing some ping pong….This is where we fostered our friendship.

Keeping my head propped against the wall, I let out a small sigh.

What was this feeling? Yesterday, I’d dreamt of me and Shimamura kissing.

Not that I’m like that. I’m sure Shimamura isn’t either. It’s not even something worth repeating myself about, but really, it’s not like that.

It’s just that when she hears the word “friend”, I want her to think of me first. That’s all.

I really like this story, but it's hard to explain why in a review. What makes it hard is that it's a slice of life story that reveals the personalities of the two main characters as they narrate what happens, so listing the personality traits that make the story interesting (to me, at least) is basically giving spoilers for the story. The most important thing to note outside of spoilers is that it's a slow (like, probably slower than you're thinking) and introspective slice of life story to the core.... more>> As for the mostly non-story but personality spoilers:

Spoiler

This is the story of the hopelessly gay for Shimamura (but kind of in denial about it) Adachi girlfriend-zoning Shimamura, and Shimamura mostly just going along with it. There are hints throughout that Shimamura cares for Adachi more than is obvious from a surface reading of the story, but they're mostly subtle. Shimamura is the first (and only) thing Adachi has ever been interested in, and she's a blushing, stuttering, immature gay mess. On the other hand, Shimamura patiently endures some things caused by that immaturity (for reasons that might not be clear until more of her personality is revealed) and has a lot of fun teasing Adachi, especially since Adachi's lack of interest in other people has led to a lack of common sense when it comes to all things social.

Up to where I read so far, this book is pretty good.

It is from the perspectives of Adachi and Shimamura, two friends who met at the start of the high school year. The first volume starts about a month after that.

Basically the whole book is full of Adachi trying to get closer to Shimamura and thinking about her 24/7 while Shimamura has a life and thinks of Adachi as a slightly annoying clingy friend. Not even the cute type of annoying, the normal type of annoying you would see IRL... more>> but not in a Japanese fictional text.

Spoiler

It took about 5 pages for Shimamura to agree to spending Christmas with Adachi.

Adachi wants to be "special" friends with Shimamura, enough that they can spend Christmas together and walk around with their fingers intertwined.

Shimamura really could not give a rat's ass. She only agreed to go with Adachi on Christmas because she thought Adachi had no other friends (well, she was right though) and was lonely. During Christmas, Adachi tries to hold her hand and Shimamura slaps it away then lectures her about asking her first because she didn't know if some pervert grabbed her or something.

This is not like in other books. In other Japanese romance books, both sides are usually at least a little interested in each other by the third volume. I'll just say that this one is a bit slow. <<less
