The SHY anime is based on the manga of the same name by Bukimi Miki, which has been serialized in the Weekly Shonen Champion since August 2019. Yen Press licenses the manga and 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!
