At first glance, Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie is an everyday romantic comedy anime where an ordinary high school boy dates a beautiful heroine, but what’s truly unique is that the heroine, Shikimori, is incredibly cool. She reacts to the crises that befall the unlucky protagonist Izumi or his words and actions with a response that would put even a cool gentleman to shame. Of course, she also shows a cute and maiden-like side to her character. It’s an anime full of the cool and cute charm of Shikimori.
The original manga for Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie began publication in 2019 and concluded in February 2023. The anime adaptation started in 2022, with the first 12 episodes produced by Doga Kobo. However, this anime covers only a small part of the entire manga story and is still incomplete.

How many volumes does Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie have?
The manga series of Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie, which consists of 20 volumes in total, just concluded with the 20th volumes in February 2023. Written by Keigo Maki, it was started to be posted on Twitter at first and was serialized on a Kodansha’s online manga platform Magazine Pocket between 2019 and 2023. Kodansha USA began to release the English edition from 2020.
What chapter does the Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie anime end on?
The first season of the Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie anime is completed with Episode 12 “Better Than a Dream,” which corresponds to Volume 6 Chapter 62 in the manga series. In other words, I recommend to read the manga series from Volume 6 Chapter 63 to enjoy the sequel to the anime first season.
Season 1: From Volume 1 Chapter 1 to Volume 6 Chapter 62
Season 2: From Volume 6 Chapter 63
While the anime is based on the manga, it’s not entirely adapted in order. However, the first season’s 12 episodes have almost entirely covered up to Volume 6 Chapter 62. So, it would be good to start reading from Volume 6 Chapter 63 onwards.
Next in the anime, a significant school event, the school trip, is depicted. Shikimori and Izumi have a lot of fun planning together, going on dates to buy snacks, and enjoying the preparations. The exciting school trip is about to begin!
When will Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie Season 2 air?
Unfortunately, Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie Season 2 has not yet been confirmed. However, since the manga has already concluded, and assuming the entire original story is to be animated, there would be enough material for another two or three seasons. For those who can’t wait for more information about the anime sequel, it will be a good idea to read ahead in the manga.
