Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie was one of the most anticipated spring anime. The anime did so many promotions here and there that the community took notice of the pink-haired anime waifu, Shikimori. At this point, will there be a season 2 of Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie?

Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie follows the strange relationship between the unlucky Izumi Yuu and the adorable Shikimori Micchon.
Shikimori transforms from a cute girl to a cool heroine to saving her boyfriend every time he gets into trouble due to his misfortunes. The anime sticks to this premise throughout the episodes that have been released so far.
Will There Be a Season 2 of Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie?
Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie Season 2 has yet to be confirmed or announced as of this writing. Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie, like any other rom-com anime show, will only have 12 episodes this season.
The anime has a huge fan base among rom-com fans. It will come as no surprise if Doga Kobo announces that they will adopt a sequel.
Concerning the source material, the manga is still ongoing, and there are many chapters left to be covered once Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie Season 2 is announced.
For the time being, the only viable answer is to wait. Anime fans can expect an announcement after Season 1 of Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie is finished. The anime is only halfway through, so there are a lot more episodes to look forward to before the next one.
If Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie Season 1 performs well overall, it is very likely that the show will be renewed for a second season.
However, many people should be aware that there are numerous anime series that have done well but not received second seasons. After all, there are numerous factors to consider before proceeding with another round of episodes.
Why is Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie Hated?
Despite the positive response from fans, some have criticized Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie.
One of the reasons for this is that Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie in general is overrated.
As My Dress-Up Darling has become so popular and successful, people have been referring to Shikimori as the next Marin Kitagawa, leading some anime viewers to an overly exaggerated hype.
In addition, both of these shows defy gender stereotypes. As a result, comparing these two shows will always be a problem. While the pairing of Marin and Gojo has been successful in capturing the hearts of viewers, Izumi and Shikimori have gotten a lot of flak.
Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie is a watchable anime in my opinion. It's not as impressive as My Dress-Up Darling, but it delivers despite the premise of Shikimori being both cute and cool, which feels forced in some episodes.
Regardless, Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie has a unique charm that characterizes it from other romance anime shows.
