First of all, I have to say that I absolutely loved it. I was pleased to watch the anime adaptation of Komi Can’t Communicate. It’s on Netflix, so go check it out! This review will be succinct; you will see why.
Starting the show was a little rough for me. The beginning feels a little dull due to us not being well acquainted with Tadano Hitohito and Komi Shouko. We’re thrown into this wild high school life, where everyone is almost a caricature of a specific persona type. For whatever reason, the first couple of episodes were something I just had to get myself through, hoping that it would hook me better along the way.
And you know what? I adore it. I have a weak spot for the Slice of Life shows and feelings. One of my favorite parts of Neon Genesis Evangelion is the one with the alternate reality, which is just so (not) wholesome. Komi struck that beautiful note of having a lightweight and simply endearing atmosphere.
Shouko has one single purpose, and that is to make 100 friends. Hitohito is her classmate that sincerely wants to help her. Interestingly, all done without an inherited romantic ploy to get to her. I can go on describing small moments I enjoyed, but that would border on retelling the story, so it would be better for you to read the manga or watch the show.
Finally, I need to say that my favorite character is Osana Najimi. She has good energy and good vibes. Well, he? She? They prefer anything; canonically, their gender is simply “Najimi.” Thanks to her incredible communication skills and pure talent, she is the complete polar opposite of Komi. There is something about Najimi-chan whom I utmost admire. The positive energy and sincerity with people that matter to her/him. Most importantly...
I live for Osana Najimi. ❤️🔥
I am obsessed with good YT edits, so please enjoy some of them below.
