Somewhere in the school at noon, one might hear the sound of two girls playing table tennis together as they wait for time to pass by.

As if by fate, two students—Sakura Adachi and Hougetsu Shimamura—stumble upon each other on the second floor of the school gymnasium. As they gradually foster a budding friendship, their feelings for one another only become more ambiguous. Growing closer by the day, the two must learn to navigate their contrasting personalities as well as determine the depth of their affection for each other.

The nature of this relationship gradually shifts when one of them starts to develop feelings beyond the boundaries of a platonic relationship. Even so, Adachi and Shimamura must realize if forming a bond stronger than friendship will bring them closer or tear them apart.

Shoujo Ai/Yuri is a somewhat controversial genre. Most people I have seen are quite indifferent when it comes to Shoujo Ai and often try avoiding it; partly because same sex relationship has always been a sensitive topic, but mostly because of the fact that a lot of Shoujo Ai anime have been very ineffective lately.

I'm not a big fan of Shoujo Ai either. While I'm definitely not against the concept of lesbian relationships being depicted in anime, among the few Shoujo Ai anime that I watched, not a single one managed to appeal to me. Rather, because of poor storytelling and particularly bland characters, I ...

In an era where girls love and yuri titles are rare, a lesbian's gotta eat right? So I tend to watch anything that's even yuri leaning. Which is how I started watching Adachi to Shimamura in the first place. The art style is cute, the girls are fun, and there's lots of yearning. What more could a girl want? For all of that to go somewhere, probably.

I have not read the manga, so I don't know if anything was resolved further there. But,,, even the Bloom Into You anime got further. I wasn't ever bored watching that; I had to skip through quite a ...

Before watching this anime, the only anime I found myself disliking were shows that were poorly made overall. This anime has a good production value. The animation is great, the characters look adorable, the direction is good - which just made suffering through it disappointing on top of unentertaining.

This anime starts off very strong. The relationship between Adachi and Shimamura is enticing and it made me want to see where it would go - and I was promptly handed my comeuppance for this transgression.

There's a certain point in the show when watching Adachi and Shimamura's relationship goes from adorable to excruciating. It's ...
