If you came here wanting more after the anime's rather unpurposeful telling of the events in the novels like I did, after 10 volumes of Adachi and Shimamura I can say with absolute certainty THIS is the story you were looking for. The anime is based on the first 4 volumes so if you decide to pick these up, you can start at volume 5. However I strongly urge you to read through the first 4 volumes, they have what the anime missed out on and that was the thoughts of both Adachi and Shimamura. It's great for character development you'd otherwise miss in the anime.

More importantly, volumes 5+ is the building of Adachi and Shimamura's relationship that everyone wanted to see by the end of the anime. It's slow-building, but I guarunteed you will not be disappointed if you are a fan of GL or even just romance genres. I for one have never been more attached to two charaters ever.
