Hitohito Tadano is an ordinary boy who heads into his first day of high school with a clear plan: to avoid trouble and do his best to blend in with others. Unfortunately, he fails right away when he takes the seat beside the school's madonna—Shouko Komi. His peers now recognize him as someone to eliminate for a chance to sit next to the most beautiful girl in class.

Gorgeous and graceful with long, dark hair, Komi is universally adored and immensely popular despite her mysterious persona. However, unbeknownst to everyone, she has crippling anxiety and a communication disorder which prevents her from wholeheartedly socializing with her classmates.

When left alone in the classroom, a chain of events forces Komi to interact with Tadano through writing on the blackboard, as if in a one-way conversation. Being the first person to realize she cannot communicate properly, Tadano picks up the chalk and begins to write as well. He eventually discovers that Komi's goal is to make one hundred friends during her time in high school. To this end, he decides to lend her a helping hand, thus also becoming her first-ever friend.

Komi Can’t Communicate is a comedy about a 15-year-old girl with extreme social anxiety who attempts to make friends. It fluctuates between “Mildly entertaining” and “One of the most unfunny comedy anime I’ve seen in my entire life.”

Komi begins the show with the goal to “Make 100 friends.” That premise becomes irrelevant when you realize everyone is magically drawn to her. For some reason, everyone in this high school finds her irresistibly attractive. She quickly becomes a passive protagonist shortly after meeting her second friend. Her goal no longer motivates the plot. Instead of making 100 friends, she should’ve filed 100 restraining orders because these read more

"This one right here is simply God's work."

There is always that one most anticipated seasonal anime that will either be panned for its overhyped popularity and fanbase or simply loved for what it is worth. However, Komi Can't Communicate, or simply Komi-san in short, is a masterpiece that can be a hit or a miss, depending solely on your enjoyment of the series' charm and quality. And clearly, I am in favor of the show's positive aspects, regardless of its demerit worthiness. In which despite all odds, I believe Komi-slice-of-life san's romcom has emerged as the year's clear winner.

For starters, there are certainly many noticeable read more

This show has two fundamental problems, and without them, it would be perfect. I read 119 chapters of the manga a few years ago, and I always thought it would be nearly impossible to adapt, because its artwork had a very particular charm to it which felt like it would prove too hard to capture with animation. However, my worries were rendered pointless, because not only is this show nicely animated, but the brilliant directorial decision was made to include the on-screen text gags from the manga, and the chibi faces were adapted with no compromise. In fact, these elements were included so faithfully, it read more

It was a cold night in December. I was sitting in front of my computer and binge-watching the adaptation I've long-awaited.

"What are you watching?" She asked in her usual energetic tone.

I neither bother to pause the anime nor turn to her while answering, "It's a Japanese cartoon called Komi-san." At that moment I couldn't remember when was the last time we talked. I took the safest bet and assumed she doesn't know what's anime, so I went with the simplest of definitions.

"What is that about?" She asked another question with the same tone.

As usual, my coldness towards her had taken nothing of her energy. Of read more
