The romantic-comedy manga series Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie announced today that it’ll be getting an anime adaptation, though the format, staff, studio, and release date hasn’t been confirmed as of yet. Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie, created by Keigo Maki, follows the sometimes cute, but sometimes intimidating, Shikimori, and her king of a pushover boyfriend Izumi, who loves her darker persona.
Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie started as a Twitter manga that gained over a million likes on the platform before being picked up by Kodansha’s Magazine Pocket. Kodansha USA releases the series in English with the first volume being released on October 27, 2020. Kodansha describes Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie as such:
Shikimori and Izumi are high school sweethearts. They hold hands walking home from school, they flirt in the halls, they tease each other. But Shikimori knows what she wants, and how to get it, and she can turn from cutie to cool in an instant.
