Adachi to Shimamura

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.

It's a cute, slow slice of life story about Adachi being super gay for Shimamura but kind of in denial about it, which motivates her to try and close the distance between them through various things, and Shimamura mostly just going along for the ride. It's very introspective and switches between the two characters' viewpoints, with their personalities revealed by their thoughts, including them thinking about events in their pasts (there are also side stories about other characters at the end of every chapter in most of the books). It's... more>> really cute how Adachi acts like a total dork due to being overwhelmed by her feelings, and Shimamura gradually discovers the pleasure of teasing Adachi all the time, which can make her even more flustered. <<less

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.


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
