From the creator of Teasing Master Takagi-san comes another masterpiece that involves a 24/7 quibbling duo. When Will Ayumu Make His Move? will receive an anime soon and cater to us with a pair of lovebirds much like Takagi and Nishikata.
You might also get some Kaguya-sama vibes from this series as it features Yaotome, Ayumu’s senpai, who tries her best to make him confess. Ayumu indeed likes her, and his ‘obvious flirting but no confession’ technique makes his senpai lose her mind.
With a tried and tested formula for a rom-com, the When Will Ayumu Make His Move? anime will premiere on July 7, 2022. Studio SILVER LINK is animating the series.
The new trailer for the anime shows Ayumu’s blatant flirting, and how flustered it makes Yaotome:
Ayumu and Yaotome are in their school’s Shogi club, and Ayumu’s love for his senpai will be visible to even people who are blind. He calls her cute every day and then denies that he is flirting with her.
Why is his behavior so inconsistent? Ayumu has decided he will confess only after he has won against Yaotome in shogi. The only problem is that he is really bad at it and his senpai wins every day with no effort at all.
Thus, both are stuck in an infinite loop of frustrating awkwardness. This feeling is also perfectly captured by the anime’s latest visual:
