Publishing company Kadokawa announced a television anime adaptation of Hitoma Iruma's Adachi to Shimamura (Adachi and Shimamura) yuri light novel series on Tuesday. More information regarding the anime adaptation will be announced on the Dengeki Bunko official website and Twitter account, Dengeki Bunko Magazine, and the author's official website at a later time.

Synopsis
Looking for a quiet place to sit around while she's skipping class, Adachi goes to the second floor of the gym and meets Shimamura. The pair spends time talking about their favorite TV shows and cooking, playing table tennis sometimes, and gradually develops a friendship. Meanwhile, Adachi starts having special feelings for Shimamura. Anguish due to the feelings inside of her, Adachi spends a little different everyday life together with Shimamura.

Iruma launched Adachi to Shimamura in Dengeki Bunko Magazine in October 2012, 1.5 years after completing his Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko light novel. Kadokawa began publishing the novel through its Dengeki Bunko imprint with illustrations by Nozomi Ousaka (Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!) in March 2013. The seventh volume was published in November 2016, with the eighth volume planned for a May 10 release.

A three-volume manga adaptation by Mani was serialized in Sqaure Enix's Gangan Online magazine from 2016-2017. Illustrator Moke Yuzuhara will begin serializing a new manga adaptation in Dengeki Daioh's July 2019 issue on May 27.

Finally a new yuri is approaching! <3 <3 <3
Curious that it is a light novel I know most of Yuri come from sleeves, but light novel only saw 2 at most. Other positive point is the author of denpa onna, what I remember of the anime is that it had very charming and cute female characters, the boy was the only ugly and smelly.

Huh, yeah, there's hundreds and hundreds of those in the market. lol And the same is true for the ones which aren't Isekai as well.

LN is a vast market much like manga and there's many series that we don't even know or have translations.

I like the fact that what you're saying is the generalized argumentation quoted and cited by the majority of the users.

I don't know how this is generalized when I'm explaining that the market have much more than Isekai and that it's vast on genres and titles.

But really, what I should expect from anime only which as the name says, only knows things when there's anime and don't know anything about how other markets are or works lol

Oh, guys. I understand that yuri is popular and many people want to see real yuri, not baiting... But damn. It feels like most people don’t care if this work is good, all that’s important is that it’s yuri.

@caio_brb The maximum knowledge of most people is "shoujo is a silly girly romance, and shonen about the battles of over-powered teens".

In any case, the sao clones predominate in the market and it is these same novels that most adapt to the anime, you do not see 4 yuri anime in a season

No Isekai is a"Sao clone" because the majority by far are reincarnation stories with no influence from it but from series which were originally web novels from Shosetsuka ni Narou which is where the majority comes from. SAO don't have any real influence on Isekai and we see it as the VRMMORPG don't have nearly the same quantity be it on light novels or anime adaptations, which are reincarnation focused and summon focused in first place be it in action, comedy, cooking or anything isekai related.

If you want to know which series began on narou, you can see it here
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shousetsuka_ni_Narou

And my argument was about light novels which is what I quoted. I don't know why you're talking about 4 yuri anime in a season when that just has to do with adaptation and it can be from any medium, while Isekai is 99% from Light Novels.

Oh my god. I've been waiting for years. An anime adaptation is finally happening!

There hasn't been any new materials for Adashima for 2 years and a half and only recently that a new volume with a new manga serialization were announced. This is really telling of how successful Yagakimi was for Kadokawa.

@RobertBobert due to the rarity of good bl and yuri adaptations, fans can't afford to be picky. maybe one day when there's a larger amount of adaptations they can, the amount is increasing. but. not currently.

anyway, can anyone tell me the plot of this? is it slice of life ish (as the synopsis suggests) or drama? im assuming because it's an ln its drama, but without giving away too many details what's the plot beyond 'kids in school talk and struggle with feelings'?

I hardly see people here who are happy about the adaptation of this work. Most people simply react to the word "yuri" as a code word, the rest is not important to them.

This is an old song. Yuri fans always complain about the lack of yuri anime, but this doesn't prevent them from calling every new all-female anime as yuri and finding lesbians among any BFF.

Is it more too much fanservice like Sakura Trick or rather a lovely rom-com like Sasameki Koto?

Not sure about your point here tbqh. Of course you can find characters who come off as gay and who tease viewers, and of course people desperate for content attach themselves to those characters. That's different from characters actually having follow through in the work.

Thing I learned from this announcement - Adachi to Shimamura is actually still being released. Can I get my hopes up for a 6th volume of Tokage no Ou? It's only been 5 years and 10 months since volume 5 came out.

Anyway, I'll give this a try. From past experience Iruma-sensei's works are usually good, even if he does have a habit of writing far too many of them at once and thus leaving individual series without any news (let alone volumes) for several years...

@Claptrap I understand perfectly well that people will consider the work as yuri, if there are a lot of yuri vibes or female characters with "doubtful" orientation. I just don't understand how people can combine this with a complaint that yuri is supposedly small.

@kuuderes_shadow Is he? If I'm not mistaken, Iruma-sensei is a woman.

Because something that has 'yuri vibes' is very different from something that actually is direct about these themes or is actually going to talk about them without leading viewers on for 20 eps. It's... hm. It's like 'there's a lot of homoerotic works, but not a lot of works that talk about being gay/have confirmed gay characters', which is true for both yuri and BL in general I think.

Strawberry panic. Plenty of yuri LNs also exist, just a lot of them are not translated.

Even last year, the Japanese themselves joked that "yuri LN does not exist" at one of the yuri events, lol. SP is a somewhat separate case, but in general, there is even a CGDCT LN.

Then why don't people just stop saying that it is yuri, etc?

Thats very nice for them to get to joke about it? I suppose? Does not make it true, though.

@rederoin The joke is based on the fact that most LN is built on the first-person narrative, while modern trends in yuri and all-female setting prescribe the maximum “exclusion” of the audience from what is happening in the plot. This is why the player’s character in Bushi’s games is becoming increasingly impersonal with every franchise.
