We get an anime adaptation of a novel called Yes ka No ka Hanbun ka (Is It Yes, No, or Somewhere in Between?) by Michi Ichiho
The wraparound jacket band on OFF AIR2 Yes ka No ka Hanbun ka, a collection of writings related to Michi Ichiho's Yes ka No ka Hanbun ka (Is It Yes, No, or Somewhere in Between?) boys-love light novel series, announced on Thursday that an anime adaptation of the series is in the works. The announcement did not reveal the anime's format.
The novels' story follows Kei Kunieda, a young and popular TV announcer who maintains a perfect facade in his professional life, but privately curses everyone around him as incompetent fools. However, a certain circumstance allows animation writer Ushio Tsuzuki to discover Kei's more acerbic side.
Ichiho launched the novel series with illustrations by Lala Takemiya in November 2014, and Shinshokan published the series' third volume in 2016. The series' first "OFF AIR" spinoff volume debuted in August 2017.
The series ranked #1 in the novel category of Next BOOKS's Kono BL ga Yabai! list in 2016, #2 in 2017, #1 in 2018, and #1 in 2019. The series also ranked #3 in the light novel category of the Yomiuri Shimbun's Sugoi Japan Awards in 2017.
The February 2020 issue of Shogakukan's Flowers magazine revealed on Saturday that Setona Mizushiro's The Cornered Mouse Dreams of Cheese (Kyūso wa Cheese no Yume o Miru) will get a new bonus chapter in the magazine's next issue on January 28. The chapter, titled "Hummingbird Rhapsody," will be about an event from Imagase's past. The chapter will have 31 pages, including color pages.
Seven Seas Entertainment licensed both Mizushiro's The Cornered Mouse Dreams of Cheese manga and the The Carp on the Chopping Block Jumps Twice sequel manga, and it describes the former's story:
Ootomo Kyoichi, a weak-willed salaryman in a troubled marriage, is cheating on his wife. To his surprise, his wife hires a private eye to expose his affair–and the private eye is none other than Imagase, an underclassman Kyoichi knew in college. Imagase explains that he's gay and always had a crush on Kyoichi, so he offers to hide the infidelity in exchange for the make-out session he'd always fantasized about back in college. Kyoichi reluctantly agrees, thinking it will save his marriage, but things with Imagase soon spiral out of control.
Shogakukan published the first single-volume manga in 2006 under its Judy Comics imprint. (Shogakukan's Judy magazine for adult women serialized from 1983 to 2008.) The manga already spawned a drama CD starring Yūichi Nakamura and Koji Yusa. The sequel shipped in 2009. Seven Seas Entertainment released The Cornered Mouse Dreams of Cheese on November 26, and it will release The Carp on the Chopping Block Jumps Twice on February 11.
The manga are inspiring a film adaptation that will open in the first half of 2020. Isao Yukisada is directing the film, with a script by Anne Horiizumi.

Dream: My second Funi poll is done. Titles I will be watching and reviewing will include Chobits, Samurai Champloo, Spice and Wolf, Gankutsuou, and Dance in the Vampire Bund. Will let folks know which one I start off tomorrow at some point.
Jan 11, 2020 5:39:30 GMT
Dream: First anime I will sample among the Funi titles is Chobits. As a heads up, the series on Funi's Youtube channel is missing the two recap episodes the series aired. Not that I'll be missing those however.
