Key points for Put This on Your Radar – Alya Sometimes Hide Her Feelings in Russian:
- I was initially drawn to “Alya Sometimes Hides Her Feelings in Russian” by the key visual featuring a white-haired girl with blue eyes and a smug expression. It just clicked for me.
- I dove into the LN and discovered a unique romantic plot. Alisa, a half-Russian half-Japanese girl, struggles to express her feelings for Masachika Kuze, adding a captivating twist as he secretly understands her Russian expressions.
- Having read one volume, I’m genuinely excited about the anime adaptation. While not expecting “Oshi no Ko” levels of budget from Doga Kobo, I’m hopeful for a decent adaptation that captures the entertaining essence of the light novel’s rom-com vibes.
Ok, so look, for the most part, I am not an “appearance” guy but I got interested in anime purely because of how good its key visual looked. I mean, come on, a white-haired girl with blue eyes and that smug face, all wins in my book. And to its credit, Alya Sometimes Hides Her Feelings in Russian is actually pretty good.
Yes, after seeing this anime in the spring season listings, I decided to give the LN a try. And I read 1 volume of it. Of course, saving the rest for the anime. And I have to say, it is pretty entertaining. It is every bit as ridiculous as the title sound.
So welcome back to another edition of Put This on Your Radar – the series where I talk about upcoming anime that caught my eye. And today we are taking a look at Alya Sometimes Hides Her Feelings in Russian. Let’s get started.
What Do We Know About Alya Sometimes Hides Her Feelings in Russian?
For starters, the plot is about Alisa, a half-Russian half-Japanese girl with long silver hair and blue eyes. As you may expect she is her school’s idol and is somewhat hard to approach. But even she has someone she likes. Masachika Kuze has caught her attention but she is unable to be honest with him and only expresses her affection in Russian. Here’s the twist though, Masachika actually understands Russian and pretends otherwise for his enjoyment.
The anime is scheduled for the Spring 2024 season. It will be made by Doga Kobo Studio. Yes, the same studio as Oshi no Ko. The anime will be directed by Itou Ryouta. And Uesaka Sumire and Amasaki Kouhei will be voicing our main duo. So far, we only have an announcement video. But we should get a proper trailer/teaser soon. Either way, you can check out the announcement teaser here.
What do I think?
I am all in for this anime. As I said, I read 1 volume of the LN and it was really entertaining. I cannot wait to see it animated. I don’t think that this will get Oshi no Ko levels of budget and production from Doga Kobo but that is perfectly fine with me. As long as the adaptation itself is decent. Other than that, I don’t really have much to say. This looks like a fun anime, I love rom-coms and this is a rather good one. So I am very excited about it. That’s pretty much all!
That is all for now!
