Ahead of the broadcast of the Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie TV anime in April 2022, which is adapting the manga of the same name by Keigo Maki, the series is releasing short “voice dramas” of the two leads being cute together every month alongside a new visual. This month, in accordance with the autumn atmosphere, the voice drama is themed around amusement parks and the red leaves of fall.
The voice drama is below, though only in Japanese, while the new visual is above.
Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie is set to premiere in April 2022, with Ryota Ito (My Senpai Is Annoying) directing the TV anime adaptation of Keigo Maki‘s romantic-comedy manga at Doga Kobo. The manga started as a Twitter manga that gained over a million likes on the platform before being picked up by Kodansha’s Magazine Pocket. Kodansha USA releases the series in English with the first volume being released on October 27, 2020. Kodansha describes Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie as such:
Shikimori and Izumi are high school sweethearts. They hold hands walking home from school, they flirt in the halls, they tease each other. But Shikimori knows what she wants, and how to get it, and she can turn from cutie to cool in an instant.
