Publisher Akita Shoten announced on Thursday that Bukimi Miki's Shy manga is receiving a television anime adaptation. The official website also revealed the main staff, cast, a teaser visual (pictured), and teaser promotional video.

Shino Shimoji (Sekai Saikou no Ansatsusha, Isekai Kizoku ni Tensei suru) will be starring as Teru Momijiyama. Masaomi Andou (Kanata no Astra) is helming the anime at animation studio 8bit.

Miki began writing the action superhero story as a one-shot, which won Newcomer's Grand Prize in Akita Shoten's Next Champion in 2016 and then was published in Weekly Shounen Champion magazine in January 2017. Serialization of the manga began in Weekly Shounen Champion in August 2019. Akita Shoten shipped the 16th volume on October 6.

Yen Press licensed the manga in English on July 1 and will release the first volume on December 13.

Synopsis
Just as the planet approached its third World War, individuals with superpowers appeared from around the globe to maintain peace. They became the symbols of their respective nations, striving to limit crime and bring evildoers to justice. Teenage heroine Teru "Shy" Momijiyama is Japan's representative in the world of heroes. When a mysterious threat called Amalareiks emerges, Shy must work together with her fellow heroes to stop them at all costs. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

ohh another female lead...this is getting tiring


Around 80%+ of all anime have male protags. Are you joking/trolling, or are you just a noob?

Relax, your game-y isekais with slavery apologia and ooga booga battle shounens with Jump tropes are going to keep going just as strong as ever.

Some women talking to each other about something other than their males=yuribait

Such notion can be found as a common ground for both yurinutts and yurihaternutts.

It's also why LycoReco production team got death treaths from some ridiculous brats on twitter.

It's not as funny as the "heterosexual" tag hidden under the spoiler under shows with female leads.
i couldn't care less about that tbh.


Because you are an adult and for you the "sudden" revelation that the heroines are not lesbians will not be something important.

i was as farthest as you can get from action junkie. but 50 chapter of "i don't deserve to be hero" "why i am chosen, i am suck" "i am failure of hero, i can't get stronger" monologue over and over and over is pretty tiresome you know.

i still fondly remember the highest rated tags in chainsawman page in anilist was seinen. had to report it to take it down.

Yeah but 79 percent? I know Anilist lets its retarded userbase make those decisions, but still, that's a tad lot.

Speaking of matters that are actually important, it has a glasses MC. Praise the glasses! Even if producers're being so shy about it that you can barely notice it from all the pics.


I think we'll get along. I'm sold.
Glasses supremacy!

Yuri fanboys/fangirls are complaining again that someone is not as excited about even theoretical yuri as they are? Well, yes, MAL does not really change.

Oct 6, 4:22 AM by RobertBobert

Well that's a miserably boring plot. No interest.

Oct 6, 3:31 AM by O_T_T

Oh dear, do we have another Antiyuri-Crusader meltdown here? Never change MAL, never change.

Anyway, this is the best news I've heard for a while. The manga is nothing stellar, but pretty solid. And quite low on action, considering the genre. Half the MAL will drift to sleep during the first episode. Oh, and it sure has some yuri bait too. Tee-hee☆.
But nevermind the small stuff. Speaking of matters that are actually important, it has a glasses MC. Praise the glasses! Even if producers're being so shy about it that you can barely notice it from all the pics.

Oh yeah I love the manga for this I hope the anime turns out good

Oct 6, 1:55 AM by yamiyugi101

Well it will definitely be better than Oshi no Ko for sure, and I haven't even read this manga at all.

I read few chapters long time ago and it was boring. Heard from manga readers that what anime will cover is worst arc. So yeah.
But Shirley/Rum seiyuu is good choice.

Oct 5, 2:45 PM by bastek66

I think this looks kinda cool. I don't know anything about the manga itself but I dunno I'm thinking of watching this one when it comes out.

the issue is even after 2 arc focusing on them, the issue still persistent. then you get even more character with same issues.


Two arcs of agnsty monologues amid pretentious footage?
yes, that's why i drop it. dunno if it improved since or not, but that's my pet peeve that make me drop it.
