Kawamura began serializing the manga in Square Enix’s Monthly Gangan Joker in 2018, with twelve volumes released in Japan to date. Square Enix Manga releases the English edition of the series, with the first volume released on March 7. Square Enix Manga describes the story as such:
Opposites attract when a cheerful airhead meets the resident wallflower of his new class in this heartwarming, slice-of-life school comedy series!
One lonely, gloomy fifth-grade girl is the target of her classmates’ relentless bullying and teasing—that is, until a new kid arrives on the scene. Friendly Takada is as clueless as he is well-meaning, but somehow he possesses the magic ability to start drawing “Grim Reaper” Nishimura out of her shell. As the elementary schoolers experience all the fun of a childhood summer together—from going to the pool to picking sunflowers to watching fireworks—an unusual friendship blossoms!
Shigenori Kageyama (Himawari!) directs the My Clueless First Friend TV anime at Studio Signpost with the series set to premiere on Japanese TV on April 9 at 10 PM. Crunchyroll will stream My Clueless First Friend soon after it airs in Japan.
