Dark hair, quiet, a bit of a loner, possibly not by choice, Adachi is a bit shy before Shimamura comes into her life. And even then, while she enjoys her company, whenever Shimamura’s friends come around, usually she tries to leave rather than find her place in the group. Though, when it comes to her and Shimamura’s relationship, while Adachi may sometimes question it, Shimamura does find comfort in their mutual desire to skip class and lack of desire to compete to be top of the class.

Additional Information

  • Introduced In Season 1 Episode 1
  • Employment (1.2): We learn Adachi works at a restaurant as a waitress.
  • Grade (1.1): Is a first-year student

While not necessarily popular, Shimamura is well-liked by those who have taken the time to get to know her. She is sweet, accommodating, and perhaps that is why Adachi is drawn to her. But, unlike Adachi, Shimamura does have relationships outside of Adachi. For whether it is her close relationship to her younger sister, or two friends Hino and Nagafuji, Shimamura has options. Mind you, she notes she has never had a boyfriend but generally isn’t hurting for attention.
