Not familiar with the Komi Can’t Communicate? The series follows Shouko Komi, a High School student who gains popularity in her school for her beauty and elegance. But in the inside, Komi actually suffers from extreme social anxiety, a fact that her classmate Hitohito Tadano discovers. Because of this, Tadano resolves to help Komi on a quest to make 100 friends.
The manga is described by Viz Media as:
“Timid Tadano is a total wallflower, and that’s just the way he likes it. But all that changes when he finds himself alone in a classroom on the first day of high school with the legendary Komi. He quickly realizes she isn’t aloof—she’s just super awkward. Now he’s made it his mission to help her on her quest to make 100 friends!”
The series will premiere in Japan on TV TOKYO starting October 2021.
