Synopsis of Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu
Many of us know what it’s like to transfer to a new school with few or no friends in a new environment, going through the arduous process of getting to know people again. Bocchi Hitori knows this fight very well, as she has just graduated from elementary school and has entered high school. She unfortunately suffers from extreme social anxiety: she passes out when she’s feeling overwhelmed, throws up when she’s nervous, and comes up with ridiculously complicated plans to avoid social contact.
It doesn’t help that her only friend from her elementary school, Kai Yawara, doesn’t attend the same school as Bocchi. However, wanting to help her, Kai breaks ties with Bocchi and promises to reconcile with her when she befriends all of her classmates in her new life. Although Bocchi has no faith in herself, she is determined to be friends with Kai again. Collecting her courage, Bocchi takes on the enormous challenge of befriending her entire class, starting with the delinquent-looking girl who sits in front of her.
