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.

This is a manga about a girl with communication problem, komi-san, her everyday life and how she can get over this disturbance she has. Spoiler free review

Well, to start a TL;DR in topic:
+ a cute romance with simple moments like a telephone's call, share an umbrela, express your feelings with textting
+ good main characters, and i woud say the best 'extremally simple' main character i already saw
+ a good comedy about communication problem

- very poor supporting characters

Story 9/10

- Komi-san's cute face.
- Cute interactions between Komi-san and Tadano. And between members of the Komi family.
- Has pretty relatable situations.
- Art is okay.

Don't usually make reviews and I don't mean to be pessimistic by any means but I just really feel like this series is literally the most overhyped series of all time.

Genuinely cannot stand how brain numbingly repetitive this series is and how absolutely dogshit the characters are. None of the characters are interesting and especially not komi san. Komi san saying nothing at all is just a boring and easy way to make the moments she does speak seem special, and while you might say that's the point, the story COMPLETELY leans on it and lacks any other actually interesting plot devices.

Talking about plot, this ...
