As announced in the Tweet above, voicing the cool girlfriend, who isn't just a cutie, Shikimori will be Saori Onishi (Ais Wallenstein in Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?), with her boyfriend Izumi being voiced by Shuichiro Umeda (Makoto in The World Ends with You).


Directing Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie will be Ryota Ito (My Senpai Is Annoying), with Shohei Yamanaka (Dropout Idol Fruit Tart episode director) helping them out as the sub-director, Yoshimi Narita (My Senpai Is Annoying) as the series composer, and Ai Kikuchi (How heavy are the dumbbells you lift?) drawing the character designs, all at Doga Kobo.


Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie 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.


Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie is set to premiere in April 2022.
