Komi Can’t Communicate October 2021 Release, Trailer, and Latest Updates

The upcoming anime, “Komi Can’t Communicate,” is a perfect example of overcoming introversion with a wish “to make 100 friends” that’s even hard for extroverts to achieve.

The series is adapted from the manga with the same name written and illustrated by Tomohito Oda. The manga is exciting with a unique storyline, and being an introvert myself, I’m looking forward to seeing how Komi faces her daily obstacles.

Komi Can’t Communicate has secured its spot as the rom-com of the year, with many waiting for the anime to make its debut. The show has already started broadcasting in Japan, and the global audience will be able to enjoy it in no time.

The tweet also teases a stunning opening theme ahead of its premiere.
