Following the first PV introduce last December, the official website for the forthcoming TV anime adaptation of Hitomi Iruma’s light novel Adachi to Shimamura / Adachi and Shimamura has started streaming a 110-second second PV to introduce its main high school girls including the two title characters: Sakura Adachi (CV: Akari Kito) and Hougetsu Shimamura (Miku Ito). Furthermore, the anime’s official Twitter says, “It seems that the secret of the universe is hidden in the music used in the PV.”
It is also confirmed that the TV anime directed by Satoshi Kuwabara (The Quintessential Quintuplets) is set to premiere on TBS in October 2020.
The original novel series has been published from the publisher’s Dengeki Bunko imprint since March 2013, and so far eight volumes have been available. This is the author’s second series that gets its TV anime adaptation, following Dempa Onna to Seishun Otoko (Ground Control to Psychoelectric Girl), which was adapted into a 12-episode TV anime by Shaft in 2011.
Its story follows two high school girls, Sakura Adachi and Hougetsu Shimamura. They became friends after the encounter on the second floor of the gymnasium. They have spent normal life such as talking about their favourite TV shows and cooking, playing ping-pong sometimes, and gradually formed a friendship with each other.
Then, Adachi starts having a special feeling toward Shimamura. Being in anguish over the feeling inside of her, Adachi will spend a little different everyday life together with Shimamura.
