Alya Sometimes Hides Her Feelings in Russian light novel series is getting a TV anime. The cast information and an announcement trailer, which is available in Japanese and Russian versions, were also released. Sumire Uesaka is voicing the female lead Alisa Mikhailovna Kujou while Kohei Amasaki is voicing Masachika Kuze. The staff and premiere date are yet to be announced.
The TV anime is adapting the light written by SunSunSun and illustrated by Momoco. The novel was initially published online as two short stories on the self-publishing website Shosetsuka ni Naro in May 2020. It was later acquired by Kadokawa Shoten’s Kadokawa Sneaker Bunko imprint in 2021 and it currently has 5 volumes and a short story in circulation. Kodansha’s Magazine Pocket is serializing the manga adaptation by Saho Tenamachi which was launched in October 2022.
Yen Press is licensing the English version and they describe the first volume of the series as:
Alisa Mikhailovna Kujou is Seiren Private Academy’s “solitary princess.” She’s a half-Russian beauty with silver hair, at the top of her class, student council accountant, and…completely unapproachable. For some reason, she’s also taken on the responsibility of reprimanding the slacker who sits next to her in class. Masachika Kuze is constantly frustrating her by falling asleep, forgetting his textbooks, and just being an overall unexemplary student. Or at least, that’s how it looks from the outside. She may put on a tough act, but she doesn’t mind Masachika as much as others would think. She even lets him call her by her nickname, Alya. Anyone hearing the comments she mutters in Russian under her breath might know how she really feels, but since none of her classmates understand the language, she’s free to say whatever she likes! Except…there is one person who knows what she’s saying. Masachika eavesdrops on her embarrassing revelations, pretending to be clueless, all the while wondering what her flirtatious comments actually mean!
