The finale of the rom-com series Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutieconcluded the season with adorable youthful romance. The show did an excellent job of wrapping up the story without leaving the audience wondering. Shikimori and Izumi went on a romantic date, and both were able to express their true feelings – a perfect way to finish a romance series.
The final episode of the series was pretty straightforward but also charming. Shikimori and Izumi went on a date in a theme park, ate in a fancy restaurant, and spent their time alone on a romantic boat ride. It was a generic setup that couples in real life would normally do. And that’s what makes this series look so charming and adorable – the story stays true to reality, and watching it can make anyone’s heart race.
Throughout the series, Shikimori and Izumi express what love is all about. They showed us how being with someone you love can make time irrelevant and that a single hour can seem to last only a moment. The feeling you get that everything around you is beautiful when you’re around that kind of person. Or the feeling you have when your partner is uneasy and you want to do everything you can to make them feel better. All of these are the pinnacle of a perfect love story that they have.
Their story is one of a kind filled with heartwarming memories and passionate love for each other. These two are an ideal couple that works perfectly well together. Shikimori’s personality of being cool complimented Izumi’s character of being a magnet of misfortune. And as the story progresses, the characters were able to develop themselves much deeper.
The series got off to a mild start, but things started to pick up midway, building up to this fantastic finale. Despite having a COVID-19 outbreak in the studio, Doga Kobo was still able to deliver the show with unwavering passion and beauty. Even though there have been no announcements on the series’ continuation, I would like to see Shikimori and Izumi return.
