The upcoming anime adaptation of SHY is set to premiere this October as part of the Fall 2023 anime season.
Originally announced last year SHY is based on a superhero manga where most nations of the world have a superhero protecting them.
The titular Shy is the hero of Japan who inherited the mantle despite still being in middle school. All heroes are equipped with Heart Conversion Bracelets which turn the power of their hearts into superhuman abilities.
The series is the breakout hit of creator Bukimi Miki who began the series back in 2019 and is serialized in Shonen Champion. The series has been picked up for English release by Yen Press.
A specific release date has yet to be announced for the series but it’s safe to expect it in Summer or Fall. You can check out the latest trailer below:
Earth was on the brink of a third World War when super-powered individuals came forth from each country around the globe, ending the conflict and ushering in a new era of relative peace.
Among those heroes, Japan is represented by a timid young girl known as “Shy.” She may spend more time worrying about her own shortcomings than she does battling villains, but she’ll show the world that despite it all she still has the heart of a hero!
