Adachi and Shimamura Episode 3: Stars

Yet another banger of an episode awaited us.

Cute sparkly blue haired mystery girl

Could it be? (Manga and Light Novel readers keep lips sealed)

Adachi and Shimamura Cliffhanger

When we last left our heroines Adachi is in a most precarious position with Shimamura. So surprised by her forwardness was she she couldn’t make a move though in her mind she thought she did. We returned to that moment but from Shimamura’s perspective.

Shimamura and Imouto playing a game. Adorable. As they played Shimamura thought about the moment with Adachi. Basically she was confused by why Adachi ran away and thought about other “woulda, coulda, shoulda” moments in her life and how she regretted not making a move. Should she have approached the moment differently? Should she have snuggled with Adachi properly? Those thoughts went through her mind before a headbutt snapped her back to reality. At school however, the thought persisted as she focused on Adachi possibly replying to her texts and only half paid attention to her silly buddies when they brought up the strange blue haired girl.

Speaking of…

Yashiro's true form

You gotta be kidding me

Sir Nickolas and I talked about Yashiro resembling Erio Touwa’s mannerisms as soon as she debuted. Life’s crazy like that sometimes. Anyway I didn’t expect the space loli to reveal her true form so soon. It’s freakin’ Erio Touwa! My goodness. Okay. Focus. So Yashiro did her Yashiro stuff much to Shimamura’s (sort of) dismay and to the delight of many.

Adachi Pajamas

El Macho Chikorita delivers yet again!

Upon arriving at Adachi’s the lovesick puppy made her wait 15 minutes before properly addressing her. Although she explained the lack of replies to Shimamura’s messages she couldn’t talk her way out of her absence from school as easily.

Clockwork Adachi

Adachi is so good.

Adorable awkwardness ensued before Shimamura went back home ending with an understandably poor attempt at asking her out. Next time dearie. At least you got a Saturday hang out so close enough.

Kid Hino and Nagafuji

Still hope Hino X Nagafuji is possible too.

(No Light Novel or Manga spoilers. Not even a hint.)

Adachi meets Yashiro

Back to the main story. Adachi excitedly approached the meeting spot with Shimamura for their big Saturday “chill” when she saw a (not really) unwanted extra. After being mesmerized by Shimamura’s beauty again she had a familiar reaction to Yashiro’s true form. When Yashiro said she’d hang out with the two Adachi frowned like a sad puppy as Shimamura remembered the last time that happened and was prepared.

Jealous Adachi

The jelly was real. So real. Another “enjoy the rest of the magic and share your thoughts below”. One thing I will say, at least Shimamura doesn’t suffer from self-loathing like a certain other girl who had great difficulty embracing the truth.

So good!

Bonus: This is what Adachi saw when she arrived.

    Banger of an ep this was!

    The space loli is revealed! Glowing! Sparkly! Super cute!!! As cute as Yashiro was though, she was totally third wheeling in their date and I felt bad for Adachi who was really looking forward to her alone time with her crush. Oh well, just another hurdle they’ll have to overcome in the pursuit of love.

    Sudden and interesting developments with Hino and Nagafuji. Didn’t see that coming at all. Now I want more.

    I miss bowling. Wish the place here was open…. Damn you COVID! Damn you!!!

    Adachi in her pajamas was super cute. Yes a full version is needed for sure!

    I’m definitely enjoying slow burn romance shows more than I used to. Eagerly awaiting next Thursday to roll around so we can see more of this show!

      Ganbare Adachi!

      We NEED more NagaHino.

      So many things COVID took away from us. Curse it.

      Thankfully our good friend Chikorita157 stepped up once again with not only the pajamas but Shimamura’s thighs!

      As someone said it depends on how well they’re executed and AdaShima’s is excellent so far.

    Yashiro is too ❤ !!!!
    I keep on loving this show every episode! The tempo is really right for me, and the cast are all quite fun in their own ways~
    It’s one thing to call yourself an alien, but quite another to add on that you’re from the future. A very interesting setting.
    I really want to see more!!!
    Definitely planning to buy the LNs now, still won’t read them until this is over, but yeah.

    HNGGYA!!! Why does Adachi have to be so cute, especially when she’s getting all jelly-jelly with the Alien Loli and her “I’m angy” attitude is just too precious. The score is settled, Adachi is the cutest creature of Fall 2020. (Yes, even cuter than Yuna)

    I think Yashiro is some sort of a cupid that goes around either teasing or buffing couples and only they can notice her sparkly hair. Like after meeting her, Nagafuji made a romantic approach towards Hino and I see her teasing Adachi is some sort of a test for my baby. (I think it’s almost set in stone that NagaHino is canon, they can’t help but be)

    There is interested difference in how both show they attraction to each other, Adachi is more awarded by this but search for contact while Shimamura is more calm thinking more in metaphors

      Contrasting personalities and thought processes make for an interesting relationship dynamic indeed, especially when it’s an uncommon dynamic like AdaShima’s.

    Another Fantastic Episode!

    Shimamura’s little sister is a cutie.

    I need for Hino X Nagafuji to be canon! It’s to perfect not to be!

    Yashiro is always precious, so I always knew she would be a cutie under her space suit, but I was NOT expecting her to be such a heart stopping Beauty!

    Cant wait for more!

    Great episode. Adachi really can’t catch a break, huh. I’m sure one day she’ll have a date she dreamed of. Shimamura in casual clothes is cute. But not as cute as Adachi in her pajamas. Jealous Adachi is cute. I want to know who Yashiro really is. I don’t mind she’s around, she’s cute, but her existence confused me. Well, we’ll find out later. Or not. I wonder if Shimamura had a bad experience with friends before. She’s thinking too much, so Adachi has to be super forward here. I can see Adachi is not a gloomy type. She will fight for her love. I believe in her. Hino x Nagafuji caught me off guard. I need more of them.

      That uninterrupted date has to happen sooner or later.

      Adachi is definitely the cuter of the two.

      Yashiro is probably their space cupid as someone suggested.

      Adachi may indeed need to make the first move if she hopes to progress their relationship.

      NagaHino NEEDS to happen. At least I hope it does.

    I love how Yashiro has that mysterious and otherworldly atmosphere and her appearance and design reflects that with her hair being blue and unusually sparkling all the time.

    Very awesome episode. NagaHino canon? More awkardness from adorable Adachi and more Shimamura reflections. Overall, an awesome episode to be sure. Looking forward to next week.

    Space loli so cute! I don’t worry that she’d cause big problem for Adachi × Shimamura. She can be their “love daughter” like Vivio for NanoFate 😆

    Time traveling alien is the best. Solo spinoff when? And yes, NagaHino this episode.
