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.

Bro don’t listen to MAL for this anime/manga. MAL has the anime at a 6.98 and the manga at a 7.57. The manga should at least be an 8 and the anime should be a 7.5. The anime's music/into and outro song, animation, art, characters, voice acting is all superb. Also its rewatch value is super high for me. This anime will most likely not get a second season.

Imagine a plain general shoujo romcom from the 2000s, early 2010s, make it even more over the top (not in a good way) and switch the gender roles - Boom, there you have it, Shikimori is not just a cutie.
Thats all there is to the whole show, there are only two redeeming qualities to the show, one is that the mc pair is already in a relationship, so we skip the bullshit "accidental hand touching = losing virginity" type of shit (Dont get me wrong, that trope can be funny in a VERY short time (like 1 ep.max), but not all the time). The other ...

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 ...
