SHY takes place in an alternate reality where individuals with superhuman abilities have emerged across the globe. These newly minted heroes don flamboyant costumes and become national symbols.

While the episode count for SHY season 2 hasn’t been confirmed yet, both new and returning fans can catch up on the series on Crunchyroll before the new season’s official release. Get ready for more of Shy’s heartwarming and heroic journey!
