Described as a romantic comedy, the first volume of Komi Can’t Communicate is as follows:
Timid Tadano is a total wallflower, and that’s just the way he likes it. But all that changes when he finds himself alone in a classroom on the first day of high school with the legendary Komi. He quickly realizes she isn’t aloof—she’s just super awkward. Now he’s made it his mission to help her on her quest to make 100 friends!
As of this writing, there are 20 Japanese volumes of the manga, and the first 12 have been translated into English. The 13th translated volume is set to release on June 8th.
Komi Can’t Communicate will begin airing on television in Japan in October 2021, and, as of now, there is no news about simulcast streaming. However, the manga are available for your reading pleasure.
