The wraparound jacket on the second volume of Off Air: Yes ka No ka Hanbun ka—a collection of side-stories of Michi Ichiho's Yes ka No ka Hanbun ka (Yes, No, or Maybe Half?) boys' love light novel—revealed on Thursday that an anime adaptation for the series is in production.

Synopsis
Kunieda Kei is a popular, young TV announcer whose public and private personas are so different, they might be called extreme. On the outside, he is the picture of perfection, affectionately nicknamed "The Prince," while on the inside he is constantly cursing at all of the incompetence around him. Of course, no one knows this secret of his.

One day, Kei meets animation artist Tsuzuki Ushio for a work assignment. While Kei is in "inside mode," he later runs into Tsuzuki, who doesn't recognize him in his worn-out sweats and a facemask, but as compensation for injuring Tsuzuki's arm, Kei gets roped into helping out with his work.

Ichiho, with illustrations drawn by Lala Takemiya, began publishing the novels in November 2014. Shinshokan shipped the third volume in June 2016.

I don't read light novels, so I'm not sure what to think of this.

I just hope that there isn't a large age gap, because I'm generally not a fan of that kind of stuff.

This is not Hitorijime My Hero. They are the same age, 27 years old.

Here is a better picture of this couple.


Oh, I see. As long as it's not smut, I'll give it a shot.

Omg yess more BL!! also an adaptation from light novel :o thats surely rare lol. Never read about it, but i've heard this series ranked no.1 in the novel category of kono BL ga yabai! list in 2016, (2) 2017, 2018, and 2019, also ranked no.3 in the light novel category of the yomiuri shimbun sugoi japan awards in 2017...so i have high hopes of this adaptation, hoping it got tv series format & will turn out good, not too tropey...anyway can't wait for it!
