Kadokawa announced on Friday that the light novel series Alya Sometimes Hides Her Feelings in Russian (Tokidoki Bosotto Russia-go de Dereru Tonari no Alya-san) will be adapted as a TV anime by Sunsunsun and Momoco.
The anime will star Sumire Uesaka as Alisa Mihairovuna Kujō and Kōhei Amasaki as Masachika Kuse, both reprising their roles from a previous drama CD. In addition to the anime, Alya will also become a VTuber.
Alisa Mikhailovna Kujou, a half-Russian beauty and student council accountant at Seiren Private Academy, is known as the "Lonely Princess". She takes on the task of bringing the slacker Masachika Kuze, who is sitting next to her in class, to her senses. Although she seems tough, she doesn't care for Masachika as much as others think. When she mumbles comments in Russian, she thinks no one understands her, but Masachika listens and pretends to be ignorant.
Kadokawa is publishing the novels under its sneaker imprint Bunko, with the sixth volume coming out on April 1st. The manga adaptation by Saho Tenamachi was published in Kodansha's App Magazine Pocket in October 2022.
