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.

All the characters were very charming and oddly realistic and relatable despite their out-there personalities and gimmicks. It feel kind of like what anime club used to be like in high school, all the oddballs put together in a pit where they all think they're the main character.

A lot of reviews don't seem to like that Komi continues to be silent/near silent and progress is made in incredibly small increments but I think it's more realistic that way. She doesn't overcome her problems just because people like her. I like the focus on her being understood as she is rather than being forced to become ...

It's an okay anime, I would not say it's bad, however not a fantastic anime.

The plot stays consistent throughout the entire anime, our main protagonist Komi has trouble interacting with other people around her and feels uncomfortable talking to others. Unfortunately, that is the entire anime, and it does not expand off that. You can argue that
"It's the name of the anime so obviously the anime will bring up that Komi is introverted!"
Yes except after watching an entire anime that revolves around that, you find yourself getting bored because it never feels like the plot is going anywhere.
The characters are "okay", you won't find ...

„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 ...
