Yuu Izumi leads a high school life filled with one mishap after another. No matter how improbable the situation, unfortunate events strike him at every turn. In possession of such terrible luck, Izumi enters his second year with a single wish in mind—to spend more time with his affectionate girlfriend, Micchon Shikimori.

Cute, athletic, and caring, Shikimori is immensely popular at their school. But since they began dating a year ago, Izumi has witnessed a surprising side to his otherwise adorable girlfriend: when the need arises, she turns incredibly cool! His misfortunes are easily avoided when she is there to protect him with an awe-inspiring look on her face. Charming in every way, she never ceases to make his heart skip a beat. Unfortunate as he may be, Izumi is sure to see his days of bad luck end thanks to the cute yet cool Shikimori.

Due to the airing of urgent special news bulletins regarding the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai volcano eruption on January 15, 2022, the previous series that was occupying the same time slot required a scheduling adjustment. Thus, Kawaii dake ja Nai Shikimori-san's own TV broadcast premiere was delayed by one week from April 2, 2022 to April 9, 2022.

The series was released on Blu-ray and DVD in six volumes from June 29, 2022 to November 30, 2022.

i never review but the other reviews made me soo mad😭😭😭😭

This anime is supposed to be silly and cute and entertaining AND IT IS!!!

Its not really fair to get upset that its not in the normal format where they crush on each other for 12 episodes then confess at the end?? like its not trying to be that??

And the art and animation are beautiful!! the side characters are simple but they all feel like actual friends instead of characters that show up ...

Look, I ain’t got no problems with strong women in romance anime and shit, in fact I believe that we should have more of that, but this straight up feels like some propaganda material serving the feminist agenda or something. Like, the power dynamics are hella off, even nasuo, the artist for the OP, addressed this by saying 「なんか僕よりも彼氏みたい」which roughly translates to “you look more like the boyfriend than me”. You get what I’m saying now?

The story goes like this, Izumi Yuuki, who’s been under an umbrella while God was making luck rain from the sky, pulls Miyako Shikimori, the baddest girl one can ask ...

They took the whole ‘not much happens, feel good’ thing way too far. Now some of my favorite shows and movies are things where not much happens. My Neighbor Totoro, K-On!, Horimiya, Tsukigakirei; all of these have nothing going for it plot-wise but are some of my all time favorites. But this show had me straight snoozing. I thought I would like it because the premise said that the main characters were already a couple, which is not something you see much. I loved that aspect in Horimiya and Tsukigakirei so I thought a show where you just see a couples life could be wholesome ...
