Publisher Shogakukan opened an official website for a television anime adaptation of Tomohito Oda's romantic comedy manga Komi-san wa, Comyushou desu. (Komi Can't Communicate) on Tuesday. The website also revealed the lead cast, staff, teaser visual (pictured), and a teaser promotional video. The series will premiere on TV Tokyo in October 2021.

Aoi Koga (Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai) and Gakuto Kajiwara (Enen no Shouboutai) are starring as the lead characters Shouko Komi and Hitohito Tadano, respectively. Rie Murakawa (Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu) is voicing the character Najimi Osana.

Staff
Chief Director: Ayumu Watanabe (Uchuu Kyoudai, Koi wa Ameagari no You ni)
Director: Kazuki Kawagoe (Koisuru Asteroid episode director, Beyblade Burst God episode director)
Series Composition: Deko Akao (Hitomi Mieno) (Noragami, Arakawa Under the Bridge)
Studio: OLM (Utawarerumono, Odd Taxi)

Synopsis
It's Shouko Komi's first day at the prestigious Itan Private High School, and she has already risen to the status of the school's Madonna. With long black hair and a tall, graceful appearance, she captures the attention of anyone who comes across her. There's just one problem though—despite her popularity, Shouko is terrible at communicating with others.

Hitohito Tadano is your average high school boy. With his life motto of "read the situation and make sure to stay away from trouble," he quickly finds that sitting next to Shouko has made him the enemy of everyone in his class! One day, knocked out by accident, Hitohito later wakes up to the sound of Shouko's "meow." He lies that he heard nothing, causing Shouko to run away. But before she can escape, Hitohito surmises that Shouko is not able to talk to others easily—in fact, she has never been able to make a single friend. Hitohito resolves to help Shouko with her goal of making one hundred friends so that she can overcome her communication disorder. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

Oda originally launched the manga as a one-shot in Weekly Shounen Sunday in September 2015, which began regular serialization in the magazine the following May. Shogakukan published the 20th volume on February 18, with the 21st volume scheduled for a May 18 release. Komi-san wa, Comyushou desu. has a cumulative 5.2 million copies of its compiled volumes in circulation.

VIZ Media licensed the manga in English in November 2018 and shipped the 12th volume on April 13. The manga has also been published in multiple foreign languages.

Heard so much about Komi, but also heard literally nothing happens after a while.
Well, I’m looking forward to this one

Feels like this Manga only got an Anime because people hyped the crap out of it, for reasons that i apparently don't understand. It's just Komi carrying the entire thing despite that even her character isn't good, let alone the others. Is it because people think she is "cute" or anything like that? I mean the story barely makes any progress, and even if you view it as a simple slice of life Manga it's not a good one at that.

I've found out about the manga last year and was praying for it to get an Anime adaptation (and a great one at that). The PV looks very promising, I'm really excited for it! Can't wait!! I love Komi-san so much <3

That's your opinion and I respect it, but there must be a reason for this many people wanting a series to be adapted into an Anime.

Honestly, having read and watched quite a lot of Romance/SoL series, I personally love this manga. I found that most of the characters have unique traits and personalities, and I simply love reading stories like this (even if the development is slow, since there's so many characters to keep track of) just to see how their relationships evolve with time and different events and such. Plus, I think Komi-san is incredibly beautiful (character design wise) and her mannerisms are just too cute (especially when cat ears pop out of her head and she transforms into a chibi character, makes me laugh everytime!)

Maybe it's just not your type of manga/Anime :-)

So this is one of those anime where the female lead is cute and likable but everyone else is a fodder.

How much y'all wanna bet that the other girl on the cover (probably a childhood friend) is in love with the protagonist but in the end it is all in vain because Komi exist? We will have a confession by the end of this season, as well as the girl's realization of the protagonist's love for Komi.


I can assure you that it is not the case. I'm well over 280 chapters in the story and no such thing happened.

finally, now the fans can stop complaining about it. the pv looks better than the manga artwork. I'll be sure to watch it even though I found the manga boring

This is based.

I can't say I am hyping it like crazy, but I was waiting for an adaptation forever. It might do a Horimiya and skip hella content.


Anyone else questions the peculiar ass images that surface on the internet for no apparent reason?

I'm really worried how the adaptation will go.The studio is heavily inexperienced in making these type of anime.The only notable anime they made are Pokemon and Berserk(The good one).They should've given the anime to an experienced studio who has worked on romance before considering this is an extremely popular manga.If not done right,it would disappoint the masses.

While this series has long since passed the point of being stale and derivative, the good thing is that an anime adaptation should only be adapting the early chapters of the series back when it was still fun and entertaining to read. I'll likely watch it on that basis, but with the hope that they just forget Yamai exists and don't get to the point where Manbagi shows up and the series descend into no-progress purgatory.

My only real immediate concern is that they'll do something similar to Senryuu Shoujo and have Komi voice the lines she writes in her notebook, as that would kind of defeat the value of the rare moments when she actually speaks in the early stages of the series. That aside, I'm hoping Rie Murakawa doesn't go for a voice as grating as the one she uses for Megu in GochiUsa, as that'll make it very hard to endure all of the screentime Najimi is going to get.

the studio isn't what matters the most in these type of situations (or any type of situation tbh) it's the one that leads the project as in the directors and co .(sound , art , animation and all .) . The studio and it's animators is only gonna follow the directors wishes and how he wants to portray the show (with A bit of room for individual expression of course)
And in this case the leaders are experienced in handling such type of shows . We literally have the director of kaijuu no kodomo .....

Tho the matter is going to be the content and how they are adapting it . I too think that series will skip a lot of the chapters and all , like horimiya . It's on the production committee and deko akao now .unlike with horimiya , this series doesn't have much dramatic moments , like love triangle or love rejection/confession and all that .

We got our wish on the visual aspect , now we pray for what those visuals is gonna hold....

The PV looks incredibly good! The director's kinda an amateur, so hopefully Watanabe's a big part of the production. Also, I doubt people would have issues with Kajiwara voicing Tadano after hearing the PV. He's a really good VA and people shouldn't dismiss him just because he voiced Asta. Good VAs don't sound the same in every role they do.

I don't mind if the anime skips some chapters here and there (like Kaguya-sama). I just hope that the anime doesn't rush to Manbagi's debut. Hoping for a 2-cour season, but with visuals like that, it might just be one-cour instead.

Also there is a quite a few chapters with just 5-7 pages, or silent chapters from Komi's PoV, so in one episode they could adapt 4-5 chapters at ease, while tuck some short chapters in scenes after ending, like in Jujutsu Kaisen.

I see people classing this as a rom com but it really isn't. Sure there is some romantic elements in it but is few and far apart. If anything you can call this a slice of life anime.

Yes. I have caught up with the recent chapters

Well since when the domain for the anime was registered, it was about time it finally announced it to the public :P
There was once a signature here.

Apparently advicing people to not act in a way that would get them insulted is an insult itself.
We truly live in a society.

That said, don't @ or quote me. I won't be notified of your heroic try.
You can celebrate my greatness by commenting on my profile, though. Love ya all.
