A leak from Weibo assured that the manga written and illustrated by Eku Takeshima, Sasayaku You ni Koi wo Utau (Whisper Me a Love Song), will have an anime adaptation. The leak did not reveal production details or a scheduled release date, so we will have to wait for an official confirmation soon.
Eku Takeshima began publishing the manga in the magazine Monthly Comic Yuri Hime from the publisher ichijinsha in February 2019, and has six compiled volumes published to date. Erica Friedmannfrom Yuriconnoted in his review that although the story is not groundbreaking, it is “so nice and it is so full of such nice characters that it is a pleasure to read it“. However, The OASG criticizes its ability to maintain the interest of the series: “Eku Takeshima is betting the success of this entire story on the strength of the relationship between Himari and Yori, and while that might have worked if this story was a short one-shot, it’s nowhere near enough for an entire series.“.
Synopsis for Sasayaku You ni Koi wo Utau
