Shy is based on the Akita Shoten-published manga by Bukimi Miki. Yen Press describes the plot as:

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! 


Shino Shimoji is voicing main heroine Teru Momijiyama/Shy in the anime. Masaomi Andou (Rumble Garanndoll) is directing the show at Eight Bit

The manga began serialization in Weekly Shonen Champion in August 2019. 19 tankoubon volumes have been published as of May 2023.
