Aharen san wa Hakarenai explained – Key visual, cast, release date estimate, trailer
Aharen san wa Hakarenai anime is a youth romantic comedy featuring the small and quiet girl Reina Aharen, and her seatmate Raidou Matsuboshi. Aharen is completely unpredictable and tends to act in a familiar way with everyone she interacts with. In an overly familiar way, above the expected threshold in Japan. While this got her into trouble in the past, Matsuboshi actually doesn’t mind at all, and that’s how their friendship starts.
Most of the chapters are comedic in nature, with a slice of life feel to them. And most importantly, it’s funny and extremely cute. The title can be translated to “Aharen Is Indecipherable”. There is no official localized title seeing the manga isn’t published in the USA. It’s published by Shueisha on the Shonen Jump + app in Japan.
As for the cast, Inori Minase voices Aharen. She most notably voiced Altina in the Trails Series, Rem in Re:Zero, and Hestia in Danmachi. Recently, Inori Minase also voiced Priscilla, one of the Heroines of Rune Factory 5. The awesome new entry of the series is already available on Switch in Japan, and is coming to PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch in the West in 2022.
Meanwhile, Takuma Terashima voices Matsuboshi. He’s known for voicing Apollo in the original Aquarion anime, or Fighter Roar in Super Robot Wars OG. Takuma Terashima also voices Shiki in Edens Zero, and Akkun in Tokyo Revengers, to take more mainstream and recent examples.

More on Asato Mizu
Aharen san wa Hakarenai is written by Asato Mizu, the same mangaka behind Denkigai no Honya-san and Dansai Joshi. The series started in 2017 and currently has 11 volumes out. Most of Asato Mizu’s series has a comedy focus, though she did publish an incredibly depressing one-shot titled Rec back in 2014.
Asato Mizu is most notably a huge fan of the Pretty Series IP, which is originally a rhythm arcade game by Takara Tomy, with several anime adaptations by Studio Tatsunoko including Pretty Rhythm, King of Prism, Pripara, and Kirato Prichan. The next series, Waccha PriMagi, will begin in October 2021, and Asato Mizu will probably share some fanart of it on Twitter when it begins. She also shared some Aharen artwork for the anime’s announcement:
