My Clueless First Friend anime is adapted from the manga series by Taku Kawamura which has been serialized by Square Enix’s shonen manga magazine Monthly Gangan Joker since May 2018. Square Enix Manga & Books is publishing the manga in English and they describe the first volume as:
Opposites attract when a cheerful airhead meets the resident wallflower of his new class in this heartwarming, slice-of-life school comedy series!
One lonely, gloomy fifth-grade girl is the target of her classmates’ relentless bullying and teasing—that is, until a new kid arrives on the scene. Friendly Takada is as clueless as he is well-meaning, but somehow he possesses the magic ability to start drawing “Grim Reaper” Nishimura out of her shell. As the elementary schoolers experience all the fun of a childhood summer together—from going to the pool to picking sunflowers to watching fireworks—an unusual friendship blossoms!
