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.

This anime has made it to the top of my list to recommend to romance/slice of life newcomers!
Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie is such a sweet anime with only currently 12 episodes about a couple and their friends enjoying high school. But what sets this particular romance anime apart is that they are already dating starting from the first episode.

But it is so refreshing when the story starts out with them already together and you just get ...

Mixed Feelings
As an avid lover of slice-of-life and romance anime, Kawaii dake ja Nai Shikimori-san is one of those shows where it's just alright. I don't have anything critical to say about it because it's ignorant to expect too much from these types of shows. But I'll give my honest thoughts on it.

The show revolves around Izumi, our protagonist (???) or the main male lead character. His character is grounded in the super unlucky trope, and it's ruining my life type of thing. He's very passive for most of the show and doesn't really have ...

A super toxic love that never advances, I hate this series like they have no idea, not only because the protagonist is the worst, also because I will never understand the point of this series, they show us a guy with very bad luck and his girlfriend according to super beautiful that she fell in love with him suddenly and wanted him to be her boyfriend. Not only is the idea the most stupid thing I've ever seen, but I also don't find a virtue in the guy at first glance, besides being a very good person, most romance series present us with the problem ...
