10 Anime To Watch If You Love Shikimori’s Not Just A Cutie

    Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie (Kawai dake ja Nai Shikimori-san) is a Keigo Maki manga series about a Japanese romantic comedy.

    In April 2022, Doga Kobo will broadcast an anime TV series adaption.

    Shikimori appears to be the ideal girlfriend: cute, sweet, and devoted to her partner Izumi. When Izumi goes into difficulties, though, her lovely persona vanishes. She then transforms into a cool heroine with piercing blue eyes that everyone admires, saving Izumi from a variety of perilous circumstances!

    1. Sword Art Online

    Sword Art Online

    SAO is a game-isekai, yet it isn’t afraid of wholesome romance. Because they know their feelings are genuine, the adoring couple vows to locate each other in real life no matter what.

    Asuna is on par with Shikimori as a top-tier waifu.

    The series is set in the year 2022, where gamers may now connect to a VR MMORPG game called Sword Art Online using a helmet called NerveGear, which can imitate users’ senses via their brain, allowing them to feel and control their in-game character with their brains.

    Kazuto Kirigaya is an avid player, so he is naturally excited. 10 000 players, including Kirito, join in for the first time when the alpha version of SAO is launched, only to discover that the logout option is disabled. The game’s designer arrives in-game and declares that the only way out is to beat all 100 floors of Aincrad, a floating iron-and-stone fortress that serves as the background for SAO. He further claims that if they die in-game or if their NerveGear is forcibly removed, they would die in real life.

    2. Maid-sama! Kaichou wa Maid-sama!

    Maid-sama! Kaichou wa Maid-sama!

    After a number of her classmates visit the maid café where she discreetly works part-time, a high school girl’s life is flipped upside down.

    Maid-sama! Kaichou wa Maid-sama! Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie and Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie are two sweet high school romance series featuring appealing characters. If you liked the first, you will without a doubt enjoy the second.

    3. My Story of Love!!

    My Story of Love!!

    After he protects her from a groper, a petite cute high school girl falls in love with a rather unconventionally looking first-year student.

    Both of these series are full of fluffy vibes and beautiful moments as we see the couple’s day-to-day interaction. The beauty of them is that they demonstrate what it is to be loved for who we are.

    4. Darling, I’d like to play dress-up with you

    Darling, I'd like to play dress-up with you

    My Dress-up Darling first aired in January 2022 and quickly became a hit. The two series have a lot in common: they’re both romcoms featuring a strong and supportive heroine who brings out the best in the male protagonist.

    Gojou, a doll-loving boy, is the protagonist of the series. He spends his days at his home, working on traditional Japanese-style miniatures, and he avoids making friends because he fears his strange pastime would be looked down upon.

    Surprisingly, he is drawn into the cosplay world when Kitagawa, a lovely lady classmate, learns of his sewing abilities and begs him to assist her with her cosplay passion.

    5. Ah! My Godmother

    Ah! My Godmother

    A college student summons the Goddess Belldandy by mistake and wishes for her to live with him forever. Surprisingly, his request is granted, causing chaos in the process.

    Belldandy and Shikimori are unquestionably ideal girlfriends: they are caring, altruistic, and protective of their partners. If you want to watch a ‘feel good about yourself’ anime, watch this clichéd romantic story develop!

    6. The Future Diary

    The Future Diary

    The Future Diary may be more action-packed and shounen-esque, but the protagonist’s yandere girlfriend will undoubtedly remind you of Shikimori due to her cuteness, resourcefulness, and protectiveness. She has repeatedly saved the protagonist’s life and is still going strong.

    Amano Yukiteru is a lone observer who frequently engages in dialogues with his imagined pals, Deus, the God of Space and Time, and his servant. What a shock Yuki will feel when he discovers that Deus is a true God, confirming it by bestowing upon him a Random Diary that can foretell future events.

    Everything appears to be going swimmingly until Deus chooses to grant an additional 11 diaries to other people. This is because Deus only has one goal: the owner of the diary who kills all of the remaining diary owners will become God, succeeding Deus, who is due to die.

    “Kill or be killed” is the first round of the game.

    7. Fairytale Taishou

    Fairytale Taishou

    Taishou Maiden Fairytale is a straight-up romance series with no harem or drama, which is akin to Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie.

    Despite being born into a wealthy household, Tamahiko Shima grew up without receiving a single ounce of love from his parents.

    He lost everything after the accident—his mother, the use of his right hand, and his father’s expectations. His father saw him as a useless waste of space after he lost use of his dominant hand and felt it was better to send him to the vila in the Chiba highlands. Tamahiko, believing that this was his ultimate home, sat peacefully waiting for his death.

    However, someone knocks on the door one winter night, and when he opens it, a young girl presents herself as his soon-to-be bride, who has come to look after him!

    8. Horimiya


    Horimiya tells the budding companionship of two high school friends who keep their true identities hidden from their peers until they meet unexpectedly outside of school and accidentally reveal their true selves. An odd friendship develops as a result of this encounter.

    Both shows feature a protective/jealous woman who encourages her partner to be the best version of himself while accepting him for who he is, warts and all.

    9. In/Spectre

    In Spectre

    In/Spectre, like our Shikimori, features a heroine who adores her guy despite all of his magical flaws. She is strong and intelligent on her own, and she is willing to protect him, making her one of the best anime girlfriends.

    The series follows Kotoko Iwanage, a young girl who appears to be normal on the surface but is anything but. She became a mediator between the spirit and the human world when she was 11 years old. Youkai contact Kotoko if they have a problem they want to fix.

    Kurou Sakuragawa, on the other hand, is a 22-year-old university student who recently broke up with his fiancée. When Kotoko finds an opportunity to get closer to Kurou, she seizes it with both hands, hoping to marry him one day.

    Kurou immediately demonstrates that he has a wealth of knowledge and can be of great assistance in resolving many supernatural issues, and the two become partners.

    10. Tonikaku Kawaii

    Tonikaku Kawaii

    Looking for a lighthearted, fluffy, and pleasant romantic anime about two teen lovebirds? You’ve come to the right place! I should also point out that in Tonikaku, the female saves the boy as well, and there is no drama.

    Tonikaku Kawaii tells the story of Nasa Yuzaki, a young boy who is hit by a truck on the day of his high school entrance examinations, only to be saved by Tsukasa Tsukuyomi, a stunningly gorgeous girl. Nasa manages to profess his love for the girl while being barely alive and on the verge of passing out. Tsukasa recognises his feelings and agrees to be his girlfriend on the condition that they marry, which Nasa readily accepts.

    Tsukasa is nowhere to be seen when he wakes up at the hospital. Years pass, and Nasa devotes his entire attention to reuniting with her, but to no avail.

    One day, an unwelcome visitor knocks on his home with a marriage form, thus beginning their relationship and marriage.
