I am sure more websites like Crunchyroll and Funimation will soon announce the dates they will be streaming the show.
For the Japanese premiere, the anime revealed a video for the opening theme called ‘Cinderella’ by Cidergirl.
The video is lively and colorful, with many symbols portraying the show’s theme and the characters’ personalities.
It starts with Komi-san dropping down from the sky into Hitohito’s school, which signifies that Komi is so enchanting that she is no less than an angel coming down from the heavens.
It also signifies that Komicame crash landing into Hitohito’s life and turned it upside-down. Komi is then shown in a colorless and gloomy setting, looking out of the window at other students and longing for friends.
Her surroundings are instantly filled with bright colors as Hitohito appears, showing how he became her first-ever friend. As more and more characters appear, Komi runs towards them as they play and enjoy and finally begins to smile.
With all this hype for the anime, I can’t wait for it to premiere worldwide. Right now, only the raw version of its first episode is available without any subtitles or dubbing.
But don’t worry, it’s just a few more days till we see the iconic blackboard scene between Komi and Hitohito and the start of Komi’s rollercoaster school life.
