Yuu Izumi is a high school student whose life is filled with misfortune. Ever since he was young, he would always return home with injuries. Due to his unlucky disposition, his days are full of nothing but unfortunate events—that is, until he started dating Micchon Shikimori.

One can describe Shikimori as the perfect girlfriend: cute, adorable, and unbelievably in love with Izumi. However, she is occasionally not so charming; instead, she becomes the coolest girlfriend in the scariest way possible! Her demanding presence and earnest concern for Izumi's wellbeing never ceases to take his breath away. With the cute yet cool Shikimori now by Izumi's side, his luckless days are over, bringing a life full of happiness and warmth.

Read this if you want to give yourself depression because you will never have a relationship this perfect. Let's be honest - this is not the manga about simple school love, but about our dreams about perfect girlfriend who will never be with us. I love this manga so much that i read it in one time and i am waiting for the new chapters. But be aware because this manga is like drugs. I want to say this was a good manga cause I enjoyed it but when I look at myself I see desperate person who avoids reality

p.s. shikimori is very cute, would read more

This manga can be very boring. In a way.

Let me start with this. You have an awesome premise. A guy with so much bad luck that he could be struck by lightning on a clear day and a girl who is so cool and reactive I swear she can catch a bullet with eye lids. I mean like block the bullet and live, with zero damage. Yet they do not utilize this much in the story.

It is used but not like it could. The characters are also just fun loving, nice people and there is almost zero drama. A slice of life, romance in read more

'Kawaii dake ja Nai Shikimori-san' ('Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie') follows Shikimori and Izumi who have been seeing each other for over a year but haven't done anything more than a kiss. Fine, there's no rush because these types of stories operate under the pretense that the main couple is going to be together forever so they have the rest of their lives to visit pound town. But you might assume these characters have one year left to live with how many times they feel compelled to reiterate their undying love for each other and how they will always be together. It's not just what read more
