The official website for the television anime of Hitoma Iruma's Adachi and Shimamura (Adachi to Shimamura) yuri novel series posted the anime's third promotional video and a new key visual on Tuesday. The video previews the anime's opening theme song "Kimi ni Aeta Hi" (The Day I Met You) by Akari Kitō and Miku Itō, as well as the ending theme song "Kimi no Tonari de" (Beside You) by Kitō, and it also reveals the anime's October 8 premiere date on TBS (October 9 premiere on BS11).

Funimation is streaming an English-subtitled version of the same video. Funimation will stream the anime.

The vidoe and site also listed more staff members for the anime:

The anime stars:

Satoshi Kuwabara (Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal, Dagashi Kashi 2, Black Jack, Astro Boy: Shinsen-gumi) is directing the anime at Tezuka Productions. Keiichirō Ōchi (The Quintessential Quintuplets, Hinamatsuri) is overseeing the series scripts, and Shizue Kaneko (Lost Song, How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord, If Her Flag Breaks) is designing the characters.

Seven Seas plans to publish the first light novel volume digitally on June 2 (the print version might be delayed due to the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic), and it describes the series:

Adachi and Shimamura, two young women who attend the same high school, are inseparable friends. Whether playing table tennis, chatting about favorite TV shows, or just relaxing together, they're happy to share their days. When Adachi's friendship turns into romantic attraction, the relationship begins to change, one day at a time.

Iruma launched the novel series in Dengeki Bunko Magazine in 2013 with illustrations by Non (the magazine ended publication in April). Mani drew a three-volume manga adaptation of the novel series on Square Enix's Gangan Online website from 2016 to 2017. Moke Yuzuhara launched a new manga in Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh magazine in May 2019.
