Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie Episode 7 release date delayed by COVID infections at Studio Doga Kobo

Due to a COVID outbreak at Studio Doga Kobo, the Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie Episode 7 release date has been delayed until May 28, 2022.

Additionally, several other Kawaii dake ja Nai Shikimori-san episodes will be delayed, which means the Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie Episode 12 release date will be pushed back into the Summer 2022 anime season.

During Spring 2022, Studio Doga Kobo experienced a fast spread of COVID-19 among members of the studio staff. To contain the spread of the virus, no staff was permitted to enter the office while a deep clean was performed from April 6th through April 17, 2022.

Due to this reason the Technoroid Overmind episodes were delayed from premiering in July 2022. On May 13, 2022, the studio confirmed that multiple Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie episodes will similarly be delayed due to the COVID pandemic.

Here is the currently planned TV schedule:

Let’s hope there are no additional delays for the Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie finale. The 86 anime faced delays due to production issues and the 86 finale was pushed back by months since other anime TV shows were already scheduled for the TV show’s time slot by the Japanese broadcasters.

The end result was a situation resembling the infamous Wonder Egg Priority Episode 13. That anime TV show also suffered from multiple delays and the finale was released three months – an entire season! – later.

Japanese animation Studio Doga Kobo (which literally means “video factor”) has been around for a long time. Formed way back in July 1973 by former Toei Animation members, the company became known for creating romantic TV shows and slice-of-life stories.

The studio is best known in recent times for adapting manga slice-of-life comedies like Asteroid in Love, How Heavy Are The Dumbbells You Lift?, and New Game! Their more recent anime projects include the Ikebukuro West Gate Park anime, the My Senpai is Annoying anime, and the Osamake anime.

In 2022, Studio Doga Kobo also released the (delayed) Technoroid Overmind anime and the RPG Real Estate anime. In the future, they’ll be working on the Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle Season 2 anime.

The first season of the Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie anime was helmed by director Ryouta Itoh (My Senpai Is Annoying) and assistant director Shouhei Yamanaka. Writer Yoshimi Narita (My Senpai Is Annoying) wrote the scripts.

Artist Ai Kikuchi (New Game!, Love, How Heavy Are The Dumbbells You Lift?) was both the character designer and chief animation director. Composer Hiroaki Tsutsumi (Tokyo Revengers Season 2, Ahiru no Sora, Devil May Cry, Dr. STONE, Jujutsu Kaisen 0, Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2, Monster Musume, By the Grace of the Gods, My Senpai Is Annoying) created the music.

Hopefully, Studio Doga Kobo will return for making the Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie Season 2 anime TV series. Stay tuned!
