Shikimori seems like the perfect girlfriend: cute, fun to be around, sweet when she wants to be... but she has a cool dark side that comes out under the right circumstances. And her boyfriend Izumi loves to be around when that happens!

Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie somehow found a way to be somewhat original, but yet feel incredibly bland and generic.

I've watched a lot of Romances and never have I watched a show that relied so heavily on it's female lead, to a point where everything else in the show is bad. One of the few positives I will say about this show, is the colour pallette is very vibrant and brings light to a what feels like a dull show.

My main issue with this Anime is the message it's trying to portray in the first 3 episodes, 'big tough popular girl wanting to read more

The most enjoyment I found out out of this was loudly laughing out loud at its predictability. I enjoy anime romcoms, but not only is this anime the DEFINITION of a trope, using all the annoying romcom tropes seemingly like 15 times a minute, but the two have NO visible chemistry together. The viewer has ZERO reason to care about anything that's happening. Not only is their unconditional love for each other never explained, but the dude is pathetic and utterly useless. The joke is Shikimori's dependability in acting like a "boyfriend", but the joke wears off 10 minutes into the first episode. What are read more

Another season, another obligatory waifu ani-- wait, I already wrote this in my Dress-up Darling review.
The gimmick this time around is that the protagonist is straight out of a Final Destination movie and his super special awesome girlfriend has to protect him from his own unfortunate luck.
The way I see it is that this is a wholesome derivative of the yandere archetype. While the original yandere was so overprotective that she was scary, the girl in this anime is protecting her boyfriend from all sorts of physical anomalies while looking extremely cool (so the anime says).
The issue is that... well... that's it. That's the anime.

The story and most other things about this anime is fine but it's all ruined by Izumi Yuu. One of the most bland and cliché characters ever written where the only distinguishing aspect about him is his bad luck. There is more to this show more than just him but he still manages to makes a big enough impact to just make this anime just straight up flavorless. I wouldn't agree that this show is cringe but every interaction with that guy is just awkward and not interesting which is the cringe aspect of this show. This show is mainly his interactions with Shikimori read more
