If you are a rom-com fan then I bet that you love the clumsy Izumi and his coolest girlfriend, Shikimori. But ALAS! The official resources haven’t revealed anything regarding Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie Season 2 release. Anyways, I have got some exciting “insider” updates about the upcoming story — just for you.
Ready for the surprise? Then make sure to catch up till the end of this article.
What Will Happen in Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie Season 2?
Indeed, we all are waiting for Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie to be back on our screens. This is because it remarkably breaks several stereotypes while entertaining us with sweet-school romance and humor.
Now let me surprise you with what Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie Season 2 has in cards for us. Be ready for the most anticipated spoilers!
Izumi’s Growth and Assertiveness
From feeling unlucky, clumsy, and unassertive to experiencing lovey-dovey moments and empowerment — Izumi has surely grown up throughout the first season. Right? This is exactly how a lead character should grow.
But his character development isn’t completed yet. He has a long way to go to become the “assertive man” in the relationship. By this, I mean that he needs to stop feeling “controlled” and “dependant.”
I don’t know about you, but I am really looking forward to Izumi becoming a proactive person in the second season. It is expected that Shikimori will have to put in a lot of effort in order to make it happen. I really hope that they do not have to fall apart in order to make it happen.
Senior Year, Career Paths, and Fun Activities
The first season clearly showed us that final exams are around the corner, right? So, the second season will let us a peak at the gang’s plans for what they would do in their senior year.
We will get to see Izumi, Hachimitsu, Inuzuka, and other friends gathering at Shikimori’s house for exam preparation. While studying, they will discuss their near-future plans, including career paths and fun activities.
I am sure this is something we all have done at some point in our life, no? This will surely be nostalgic for me. In case you are still a student, you’ll surely relate to this sequence.
Shikimori’s Mother and Izumi’s Meeting
Ah, yes! This is going to happen for real. The gang will soon meet Shikimori’s mother, who seems a bit serious and intense. Like a daughter, like a mother. This phrase fits the best here. So, how is she likely to react upon seeing Shikimori with Izumi?
Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie season 2 will cover manga chapters 66-74 which introduced us to Shikimori’s mother, Miyabi Shikimori, among other things. It will take Miyabi no time to notice that her daughter becomes the “happiest” around Izumi.
In the second season, we will see that Izumi confesses to Shikimori’s mother that they have been dating for over a year. Unexpectedly, she accepts their relationship right away. But is this acceptance really wholehearted? Who knows!
Inuzuka’s Senior Isana and Flying Kites
The second season will introduce various new characters, including Inuzuka’s senior colleague. She will come forth after finding Izumi’s hand-made kite. Confused? Don’t be.
Basically, one day, the gang will decide to craft kites to fly. Izumi’s kite will be lost but a woman will find it. It will be later revealed that she is none other than Inuzuka’s senior from his part-time job. While all of them meet, a conversation will let us know about Inuzuka’s and Isana’s career aspirations.
I am sure Isana will add to the anime’s spark in a positive way. Who knows, we’ll get to see a new couple! You know what I mean, right?
Shikimori’s Cooking Classes Paying Off
Shikimori has been taking cooking classes with Izumi’s mother since the first season. Now, in the second season, we’ll get to see a great improvement in her cooking. Finally, her efforts will bring a delicious taste to her cooked meals.
We all know the reason why Shikimori, the coolest girlfriend, wanted to learn cooking. It seems like now Izumi will be even happier.
But is Shikimori really happy while doing all of this? We do not know for sure if cooking is exactly what she always wanted to do or not. Let’s see what Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie Season 2 will show us.
Izumi, Shikimori, and Christmas Lights Event
In the second season, we will get multiple sweet-romantic moments between Izumi and Shikimori. You may not be ready for this, but we’ll get to see our super-sweet, unconventional couple exchanging Christmas gifts on a romantic Eve.
We will see Shikimori and Izumi for shopping. Following the shopping and other activities, both will see a Christmas lights event, creating everlasting memories together.
Oh my! I can not express how excited I am for this scene. I wonder if they’ll share a kiss, making it even more intimate.
School Trip to Kyoto and Saruogi
The most adventurous part of the second season will be the gang’s trip to Kyoto. This will surely uncover various other aspects of the story, enabling the old and new characters to grow with the flow.
The second season will bring Izumi and Shikimori’s fellow student, Saruogi, into the limelight. The gang will choose him to be added to their school trip group. However, I am sure that things will take a twisty turn as Saruogi is described to be “painfully introvert.” He doesn’t really bother to mingle.
Not only I am excited for Saruogi, the new boy’s mystery, I am also looking forward to special moments between Izumi and Shikimori.
When Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie Season 2 Will Release?
Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie Season 2 is likely to release soon, probably in 2024. I, like millions of other fans, have anticipated that this anime’s return will be much more applauded. All we have to do is wait.
Since 93% of Google users have liked Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie, the creators can never turn it down for renewal. The anime has overall received positive reviews both from audiences and critics, with special praise for the cinematography. Just wait until the official resources break news about the second season’s production or arrival.
