The teen romantic comedy follows the “indecipherable” daily life of short, quiet Reina Aharen and Raidō who sits next to her in class. Aharen is not so good at gauging the distance between people (or personal boundaries), and Raidō initially sensed some distance between the two of them. Then one day, when Raidō picked up the eraser that Aharen had dropped, the distance between them suddenly becomes uncomfortably close. From “way too distant” to “way too close” … Aharen is simply unpredictable.
The anime will be broadcast in April 2022 with Felix Film in charge of animation production.
Aharen-san wa Hakarenai is based on the romantic comedy manga of the same name by Asato Mizu (Denkigai no Honya-san). It first began serialization on Shounen Jump+ in 2017 and has collected 12 tankoubon volumes so far.
