About Roshidere

Roshidere or My Seatmate Alya Sometimes Becomes Really Lovey-Dovey While Talking in Russian is a Japanese light novel by Momoco and Sun Sun. It is published by Kadokawa.

Aalya, a beautiful silver-haired Russian girl who sits next to Masachika, and says something to him in Russian with a triumphant smile. However, the reality of the situation was different.

What she really said in Russian was “Pay attention to me!” In fact, Masachika can actually understand Russian. However, Aalya has no idea that he can understand her.

Today once more, she tells him sweet words in Russian, and Masachika simply cannot stop grinning to himself.
