Yes ka No ka Hanbun ka Boys-Love Novel Series Gets Anime
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The wraparound jacket band on OFF AIR2 Yes ka No ka Hanbun ka, a collection of writings related to Michi Ichiho's Yes ka No ka Hanbun ka (Is It Yes, No, or Somewhere in Between?) boys-love light novel series, announced on Thursday that an anime adaptation of the series is in the works. The announcement did not reveal the anime's format.
The novels' story follows Kei Kunieda, a young and popular TV announcer who maintains a perfect facade in his professional life, but privately curses everyone around him as incompetent fools. However, a certain circumstance allows animation writer Ushio Tsuzuki to discover Kei's more acerbic side.
Ichiho launched the novel series with illustrations by Lala Takemiya in November 2014, and Shinshokan published the series' third volume in 2016. The series' first "OFF AIR" spinoff volume debuted in August 2017.
The series ranked #1 in the novel category of Next BOOKS's Kono BL ga Yabai! list in 2016, #2 in 2017, #1 in 2018, and #1 in 2019. The series also ranked #3 in the light novel category of the Yomiuri Shimbun's Sugoi Japan Awards in 2017.
