The ever-increasing readership of manga around the globe is not only limited to teens and children, but even adults take pleasure in reading these graphic novels. SHY, a superhero-based manga illustrated by Miki Bukimi, started being serialized in Weekly Shonen Champion in 2019 and is a collection of 15 volumes now.
Though SHY was initially a small niche manga, its potential to be an anime adaptation was proved true when Yen Press licensed an English publication for the series at an Anime Expo. A tweet from Yen Press’s official Twitter account further confirmed the series’ English release.
The eight-bit studio never fails to surprise its fans regarding animated adaptations. Many animated productions have been released since the studio’s inception and have only gained success with time.
Founded in September 2008, this Japanese-based animation studio is well known for its extraordinary work in television series, films, and original video animations. Some other business content that 8-bit studio deals in is character design, graphic design, and product development for character goods.
TV Anime Shy’s production will take place under Masaomi Ando’s supervision at the 8-bit studio.
From relatively small niche manga, Shy fans are happy to have the people of the west on board with them.
It appears that anime fans will have the first look at the anime adaptation for Shy in 2023
