Shikomori’s Not Just a Cutie, and an upcoming romance anime, has received a new trailer. Doga Kobo, the animation company behind 11eyes, developed the anime with a similar flare with bright characters and creative animation. Based on Keigo Maki’s web Manga series, which began on the author’s Twitter account in 2018 before being officially serialized in Magazine Pocket in early 2019, Shikomori’s Not Just a Cutie (Kawaii dake ja Nai Shikimori-san in the original Japanese) may be your typical high school rom-com, except the girl and boy’s roles are inverted. Yuu Izumi, the protagonist, is a very unlucky person who is frequently hurt in the most bizarre ways. But on the other hand, Izumi has been shielded from his propensity to attract terrible occurrences since he began dating his classmate Micchon Shikimori.
When can we expect Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie to be released?
So far, Doga Kobo and Kodansha have only revealed the most basic details about “Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie.” In other words, both businesses have just confirmed the anime’s production through an announcement published on Kodansha’s “Magazine Pocket” Twitter account on January 1st. Unfortunately, they haven’t produced any trailers or other promotional materials that include essential information. However, Doga Kobo’s previous works provide a little glimpse into the studio’s production process, allowing us to make an educated prediction as to when “Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie” might be finished.
“The Helpful Fox Senko-San,” released in 2019, was one of Doga Kobo’s most significant achievements. However, according to Anime News Network, the show was announced less than a year ago, in December 2018. If “Shikimori’s Nor Just a Cutie” follows a roughly comparable production procedure, the show could premiere before the end of 2021 or as late as 2022.
The cast of Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie.
While Doga Kobo and Kodansha have not disclosed any cast members for “Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie,” we know quite a bit about the original manga’s characters. We’ve previously discussed Shikimori, so perhaps it’s time to look at her lover’s other half of this show’s dynamic combo. Izumi is a standard Japanese high school student for the most part. He’s socially awkward and dorky at times, but that’s expected. His only real problem is that he’s extremely unlucky and frequently ends the day with a new injury or annoyance. So it’s no surprise that he’s madly in love with his adorable girlfriend.
Review of the series:
The small tales that comprise the series frequently pull humor from the scenario. Izumi’s difficulties, while rarely severe, always manage to get in the way of his plans.
As a result, “Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie” is ideal for provoking those “awww” sensations that people have when they witness something too cute. This is paradoxical, given that the entire idea of Shikimori’s character is that cuteness is only one aspect of her nature. Despite this, the show’s attractiveness may be the best reason to watch it.
