Komi-San Can’t Communicate Anime Debut This Fall

Komi-San Can’t Communicate tells the story of 15-year old Shouko Komi (Komi-San for short), who attends Itan Private High School. She’s quiet, smart, and has amazing good looks. Unfortunately, Komi suffers from social anxiety, rendering her unable to properly communicate with people. This, in turn, causes her classmates to view her as a sort of unapproachable goddess. However, Komi’s life changes when she meets fellow classmate Hitohito Tadano.

Tadano, an average-looking student, is able to see past her refined beauty and recognizes it for what it truly is. After having a discussion with her via chalkboard in an empty classroom, Tadano vows to help Komi make 100 friends.
