Through the opening shot of Hiroti Gotoh, hiding in her bedroom, playing guitar tunes for her YouTube channel, to the closing sight of her on stage at her school cultural festival, ‘Bocchi the Rock’ takes us on a masterfully crafted journey of friendship and overcoming fears.
Our socially anxious protagonist’s adventure is layered with lots of humorous visuals that depict how she processes the challenges she must face.
The series beautifully depicts the issue of social anxiety and how Hiroti deals with it. In my opinion, the success of the anime was largely due to the relatability of the show, as many people were able to put themselves in Hiroti’s shoes.
Fans of this heartwarming series will have something to look forward to next spring, as Bocchi the Rock! Aki Hamaji’s delightful four-panel manga is set to make its mark on the silver screen with a compilation film, as announced in an electrifying trailer by Aniplex. The ‘Bocchi the Rock!’ compilation film will be released in Japan in spring 2024.
