Alya Sometimes Hides Her Feelings in Russian: Storyline
Kuze Masachika sits next to Alya, a girl of Russian and Japanese descent. She is beautiful, haughty and an excellent student, while Masachika is a nerd and considered a slacker. He is an easy target for her Russian remarks, which she is only too happy to mistranslate – only he can understand what she is really saying!
