We all are familiar with those jitters we get before doing something, as anxiety is something we’ve all experienced.
However, Komi-san from Komi Can’t Communicate suffers from it more than an average person, which prevents her from making friends.
On top of that, her being exceptionally beautiful doesn’t help as people fear approaching her. The manga has become very popular among fans, and the anime announcement was a cherry on top.
And if that wasn’t enough, Komi Can’t Communicate recently announced a live-action drama series as well!
…… It’s a drama. Thank you.Twitter Translation, English Translate
The drama series will be based on the manga by Tomohito Oda. However, further details regarding the release have not been revealed yet.
Moreover, the main cast who will play the roles of Komi-san and Hitohito Tadano was also revealed. As usual, we’ve got them right here for you!

Although the majority of live-action adaptations of manga and anime are infamous for being lousy and not that good, I have a feeling that this drama series will be different.
And even if it turns out to be a flop, we still have the anime, right? So let us know what you think about this drama adaptation as well!
