Golly, seems like their adapting anything they can into anime, not that that's a problem of course. ^^ WS is definitely a classic tear-jerking drama but I didn't like the ending so much. Hopefully, they'll do something about that. XD

Oh, that's great! :) I wonder if the anime version will be keeping the soundtrack from the live-action.

How do you fit years between high school and young adulthood? Generally young adulthood begins during high school.
