There seems to be no shortage of romantic comedy anime as another new show has just been announced. Recently, the Medaka Kuroiwa is Impervious to My Charms anime was revealed with a trailer.

Unlike other anime announcements which only get vague previews, this new show’s trailer features proper footage that shows off its two main stars.

Based on its premise, this series is a promising anime to watch for fans of comfy romance shows that don’t take themselves too seriously.

'Medaka Kuroiwa' is a Lighthearted New Rom-Com

Medaka Kuroiwa Is Impervious to My Charms is based on an ongoing manga of the same name that’s serialized in Weekly Shonen Magazine alongside popular titles like Go Go Loser Ranger and Blue Lock.

Its story follows Mona Kawai, a beautiful second-year high school student who charms almost everyone with her friendly nature and good looks.

The one exception is Medaka Kuroiwa, a transfer student with a perpetual scowl. It turns out that Medaka is a monk-in-training who has been forbidden from falling in love with any girl.

Taking this as a challenge, Mona resolves to make Medaka fall for her, all while not knowing just how much Medaka is resisting her advances.
