I know we all fawn over the classic romantic tropes, but you can’t deny that the unconventional pairs have a charm of their own.
One such genre is the ever-so-lovely ‘soft shy guy with a cool dominating girl,’ and Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie manga is the perfect example of it.
Izumi-kun was born surrounded by bad luck as he always managed to get himself seriously injured. That was until he met Shikimori-san, who looks like a kawaii and loving girl outside but has a cooler and more intimidating personality.
If you thought that this would be a turn-off for Izumi, then you were completely wrong, as Shikimori’s unique character just made him fall for her even more. To make things even better, this epic love story is now getting an anime.
Keigo Maki’s popular romantic comedy Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie has revealed a passionate new visual for its anime’s April 2, 2022 premiere.

The visual features our lovely protagonists, Izumi and Shikimori, in a romantic scene where the latter dominates the former. It looks cute yet intense at the same time due to their stance and the way they’re looking into each other’s eyes.
Moreover, the image accurately describes the characters’ personalities and their endearing relationship. While Shikimori looks like a cute and harmless girlfriend, we all know that she is so much more than just a pretty face.
Additionally, the franchise also revealed that the artist Nasuo☆ will be performing the opening theme song while Yuki Nakashima will be performing the closing theme.
Romance anime always have the best and most melodic soundtrack, and I can’t wait to see how these songs turn out.
The franchise also revealed some additional cast that will be joining the team, and we have it all here for you:
|Nekozaki||Misato Matsuoka||Tsubame Mizusaki (Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!)|
|Hachimitsu||Rina Hidaka||Urara Kawashima (Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma)|
|Inuzuka||Nobuhiko Okamoto||Karma Akabane (Assassination Classroom)|
The anime looks super promising and is on its way to becoming the romcom of the year, and I can barely wait for the release!
