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 follows Komi that is the prettiest and most popular girl in school, but there is one problem…she has severe social anxiety. She has a goal of making 100 friends by the end of school with the help of her classmate (and friend) tadano. He is a regular guy and is considered “unimportant” at his school. He runs into komi after class and they started talking. Most of the story is from his pov.

Actually I don’t have anything “bad” to say about this anime. The only reason I was hesitant to watch it and the reason it doesn’t have a huge score ...

„Why did I watched this? Am I some kind of masochist?"
These were my first thoughts after completing this show.

Needless to say that sense of humor and comedy differs to each person. Still when I somehow managed to finish this creation and looked on meta score, I was surprised the most in a while. First of all it’s comeady, so I started to watch this and take it somehow easy expecting to deal with most things by humor and then watch some serious moments in addition. Instead of this I got almost
zero serious moments and humor was same thing over and over. There was ...
