Hiromi Nakagawa , Animation Director for Himouto! Umaru-chan , Senpai ga Uzai Kouhai no Hanashi and Senyoku no Sigrdrifa , posted an update on Twitter noting that he had already proposed about three years ago that an anime adaptation of the manga Komi-san wa, Komyushou desu ( Komi Can’t Communicate ). In his message he wrote:
“ About two or three years ago I took the original story of“ Komi-san ”to a certain producer, to see if an anime could be made, but there was no plan to do it. Now that I see the kind of animation he got, I can’t help but think that “Komi-san” is really interesting. The music reminds me a bit of the 90s, but maybe it’s just my imagination. But the animation quality is worthy of today’s technology . However, the post was removed shortly thereafter, apparently because Nakagawa talked too much. A second update wrote: ‘ I think I became a nuisance. I’m very sorry (for someone).
Additionally, the project’s official Twitter account shared the opening sequence without credits, which features the song “Cinderella” performed by the Japanese band Cider Girl.
The series has been broadcast on television stations in Japan since last October 6 and its number of episodes has not yet been confirmed. The Netflix platform will premiere the anime globally and dubbed in eight languages on October 21, two weeks after its broadcast in Japan, with the title Komi-san Can’t Communicate . On the other hand, Oda began the publication of the manga in May 2016 through the magazine Weekly Shonen Sunday of the publisher Shogakukan . The work already has more than 5.2 million copies in circulation.
Ayumu Watanabe is in charge of directing supervision, while Kazuki Kawagoe ( Beyblade Burst God, Beyblade Burst GT ) is in charge of anime direction at OLM studios ( Pokemon, Kenpuu Denki Berserk, Utawarerumono ).
Deko Akao ( 3D Kanojo: Real Girl, Akagami no Shirayuki-hime, Hige wo Soru. Soshite Joshikousei wo Hirou, Nazo no Kanojo X ) is in charge of writing and supervising the scripts.

Synopsis of 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.
