shikimori's not just a cutie

Anime production house Doga Kobo recently had to close down from April 6 to April 17 due to a mass outbreak of COVID-19 among staff members, and now some of its productions are feeling the effects. Chief among them is the TV anime adaptation of Keigo Maki’s romantic comedy manga Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie. 

As a result of the earlier closure, the series will be seeing some delays in the coming weeks following episode 6. To buffer the upcoming schedule, two special programs will air in place of the anime on May 21 and June 11. For those keeping up with the series, you can look for episode 7 to arrive on May 28.

As for those special programs, the May 21 special will be a rebroadcast of the first episode with cast commentary, while the June 11 special will look back at some of the show’s popular scenes so far.

The Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie anime is currently streaming on Crunchyroll, which describes it like so:

The ultimate “heartthrob girlfriend” appears! Naturally unlucky high school student Izumi’s girlfriend is his classmate Shikimori. She has a beautiful smile and kind personality and always seems happy when she’s with Izumi.

This 1000% precious romantic comedy begins now!
