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.

My decision to start reading this novel was after I started reading the manga adaptation (Moke's version), as a friend's recommendation, she said I was missing a lot of the point of view of the two MCs. She was completely right.

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.

This is not like in other books. In other Japanese romance books, both sides are usually at least a little interested in read more

Honestly, Adachi and Shimamura’s story is one of the best out there in the yuri/lesbian media. It’s not your typical slow burn, angst-romance story. Something I really get annoyed with is that 90% of female characters in shoujo act like genuinely good people. I know that’s something weird to get annoyed with, but it just doesn’t feel real or human. Everyone has selfish desires, everyone goes through this limbo of not knowing what to do with their lives, we question our existence and we wonder whether we are good people despite our flaws. Adachi and Shimamura's story not only takes time to build the most read more

A good yuri slice of life. It justifies both of those genres.

It's rare to see true slow burn yuri. Most of these usually end up being yuri-bait. But this series feels like a yuri even without the need to interject makeout scenes.
The character are realistically dense. Within the first volume both characters have a thought of the other/themselves potentially being gay (though they try not to give much thought to it as that'll cause problems). It's rare for characters to have this kind of awareness.
Finishing each volume, you can always feel a step of progress, however slow it may be. This is a read more

Adachi and Shimamura is, simply put, yuri's masterpiece - if not perhaps one of the greatest romance series to grace light novels as a medium. It is a shame that it remains little known and that most people come to the series by way of the incomplete anime and manga adaptations, which fail to grasp most of the nuance and introspection from the novels. Do yourself a favour and read this, even if light novels aren't usually what you opt for. It's just that good.

-Characters- 10/10

The main duo are the highlight of this series, and certainly some of the best written and most relatable out read more
