Sinopsis de Komi-san wa, Komyushou desu
It is Shouko Komi’s first day at the prestigious Itan Private Institute, and she has already become the Madonna of the school. With her long black hair and tall, elegant appearance, she grabs the attention of anyone who comes across her. However, there is a problem: despite her popularity, Shouko is terrible at communicating with others. Hitohito Tadano is your typical high school boy. With his life motto of “reading the situation and making sure to stay out of trouble,” he quickly discovers that sitting next to Shouko has made him the enemy of everyone in his class.
One day, passed out by accident, Hitohito wakes up to the sound of Shouko’s “meow”. He lies saying that he hasn’t heard anything, which makes Shouko run away. But before she can escape, Hitohito assumes that Shouko is not able to talk to others easily; in fact, he has never been able to make a single friend. Hitohito decides to help Shouko in his goal of making a hundred friends so that he can overcome his communication disorder.
