Adachi and Shimamura
Volume 1


While they had their own reasons for skipping class, Sakura Adachi and Hougetsu Shimamura unexpectedly met on the second floor of the school gymnasium. Their chance encounter quickly paves the way to a spirited friendship—one free of unpleasant formalities and suffocating expectations. Wandering through the whims of life together, the two grow ever closer; but the blossom of unfettered feelings soon muddles the true nature of their relationship.

As the dull passage of adolescence inches toward its end, Adachi and Shimamura navigate through intricate yet genuine emotions shared by each other, gradually discovering ripples of color that brighten a once uninspired future.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


The first volume of Adachi to Shimamura was placed on School Library Journal's Top 10 Manga of 2021 list.

The series has been released in English as Adachi and Shimamura by Yen Press since February 23, 2021.

I originally wrote this review for the light novel, but since this manga adaptation continues to be very faithful, I would like to leave it as a form of recommendation to anyone who wants to.

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. The premise is relatively simple but the way it is executed is simply magnificent.

Hougetsu Shimamura. One day, she decides to skip a class. Shimamura tries to find a place, where she can hide, but finds Adachi. The two are both first year high school students. Neither of them actually takes studying seriously, which makes them very similar to each other. However, they are not even close friends. Yet, a small conversation easily breaks that wall of ice between them and one idle talk makes them somewhat close friends: they play some sport together, they talk a lot about life and become soul friends.

Unlike the first manga that axed quite many things that are important for the story development, ...

Preliminary (10/? chp)
Adachi to Shimamura is a very human take on the school romance theme.

Based off of the two protagonists' interactions and dialogue alone, it reminds me a lot of the natural relationship and fluid nature that were very much a centerpiece of shows like Yagata Kimi ni Naru and Tsuki ga Kirei (although the latter isn't a shoujo ai, but that isn't the point here).

The overall vibe that this manga gives off isn't much different either - the relationship between the two protagonists, Adachi and Shimamura, begins when they encounter each other by chance while skipping class, and from there on they go about with their ...
