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.

Whenever I try to find out about how I feel about a story, I think to myself "What is the story trying to achieve?". After reading the synopsis and a few of the chapters you might think that the point of this story is to help Komi-san overcome her social anxiety, but I disagree with this outlook.

The place where the story takes place is a high school, and every person that gets into this high school doesn't necessarily make it there because of their grades, but rather because of a special quirk related to their personality. There isn't a single "normal" person in this school, ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (330/? eps)
Komi-san is the most gorgeous girl in her school ( and possibly in the world) and has perfect grades both academically and in sports. However, she's quiet and aloof and is never seen talking to anyone. Tadano, the commically average boy with average looks and grades notices she's not just a cold beauty, but actually someone who struggles with social anxiety.

The premise is somewhat interesting, but the manga is ultimately just a gag manga with a light and generic high school romance in it. The gags are honestly repetitive and part of the appeal seems to come from Komi being your average ...

Preliminary (25/? eps)
I will be completely honest and admit that I haven't completed the entire manga. I got up to the point around where you're first introduced to Komi's Mom. Perhaps it does get miraculously better and solves all of my issues with it, though from hearing discussions around it this does not seem to be a case.

The art is fine enough, and I have no honest critique of any of the drawing. The main issue I had with it is that it was completely boring to me and was unable to keep my attention on it, and most of that was due to Komi-san's character, or ...
