I had the pleasure to watch the anime adaptation of Komi Can’t Communicate. First of all, I have to say that I absolutely loved it. 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. For whatever reason, the first couple of episodes were something I just had to get myself through, hoping that it hooks me better along the way. The beginning feels a little boring, due to largely 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.

And you know what? I adore it. There is a weak spot in me for the Slice of Life kind of 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 definitely 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, good vibes. Well, he? she? They prefer anything and 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. It’s the positive energy and sincerity with people that matter to her/him.

Most importantly...

I live for Osana Najimi.
