Seven Seas Entertainment has announced that it has acquired the license for the Hitomi-chan is Shy With Strangers manga series by Chorisuke Natsumi, a romantic comedy about an intimidating high school girl who just needs help opening up.
Tall and busty high school girl Takano Hitomi has shark teeth, a looming presence, and an intense facial expression. However, looks can be deceiving. Beneath her imposing frame and piercing glare, Hitomi-chan is a sweet first-year student who just wants to overcome her social anxiety and make some friends. Enter Usami Yuu, a second-year boy who is shorter than Hitomi but not put off by her intimidating looks. A friendship blossoms–and maybe more. Don’t miss this charming romcom between a scary-but-sweet girl and her smaller, loving senpai.
Seven Seas will publish the Hitomi-chan is Shy With Strangers manga series for the first time in North America in print and on digital platforms in single volume editions. Volume 1 will be released in October 2021 for $12.99 USA / $16.99 CAN.
