DMM pictures opened an official website for a television anime adaptation of Ran Kuze's Kuroiwa Medaka ni Watashi no Kawaii ga Tsuujinai (Medaka Kuroiwa Is Impervious to My Charms) manga on Monday, revealing the main staff, an announcement promo, and a teaser visual (pictured).

Director: Yoshiaki Okumura (Shinka no Mi: Shiranai Uchi ni Kachigumi Jinsei)
Series Composition, Script: Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (Net-juu no Susume)
Character Design: Mayumi Watanabe (Taishou Otome Otogibanashi)
Art Director: Masakazu Miyake (Otonari no Tenshi-sama ni Itsunomanika Dame Ningen ni Sareteita Ken)
Color Design: Aiko Yamagami (Dosanko Gal wa Namara Menkoi)

Kuze began serializing the romantic comedy manga in Weekly Shounen Magazine in May 2021. Kodansha shipped the 13th volume on February 16, with the 14th volume scheduled for a May 16 release. The manga series has a cumulative 1.2 million copies of its volumes in circulation.

Kodansha USA licensed the manga for digital release in English in February 2022. The 11th volume went on sale on April 9.

To say that Mona Kawai is cute would be an understatement; she is breathtaking in every single way, and she knows it. At school, she is fawned over by boys and girls alike, and she graciously welcomes it all as a natural reaction to her irresistible charm. That is, until she comes across Medaka Kuroiwa, the boy who is seemingly immune to her overwhelming charisma. She goes out of her way to talk to him and even dials her cuteness up a notch, but no matter what she tries, Mona cannot wipe the scowl off Kuroiwa's face.

Backed into a corner, Mona is forced to use the most devastating weapon in her arsenal: her physical allure. Such drastic measures would leave other boys foaming at their mouths, but Kuroiwa remains unfazed by her attempts. Little does Mona know that the only reason Kuroiwa just barely abstains from succumbing to her charms is because he is training to be a monk and thus trying his best not to be held down by worldly pleasures. As Mona goes all out to entice Kuroiwa, she fails to realize that his unintentional chivalry might just make her fall for him instead. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

Fans of rent a girlfriend will be thrilled with an equally slow burn, silly premise, nothing really ever happens kind of story XD .

This was actually a fun read, until author decided let's make it a harem because that's cool.

Will watch it anyways though.

@IzayoiSk I didn't finish watching the PV after seeing it's not voiced, just rewatched it thanks to you. That's Yuu Serizawa voicing Mona.

Hate everything that comes after chapter 60 ish but the earlier parts were something fun at least.

The description is reminiscent of that old parody douji about a gay man with an obsessive female harem who just couldn't accept that their incredibly powerful appearance just wasn't working for him.

@IzayoiSk Let's be honest, how many anime can get by without Rieri these days, lmao?
