Komi-san wa, Comyushou desu. Plot: What is it About?
When Shouko Komi enrolls at the elite Itan Private High School, she immediately turns heads and becomes the most popular girl because of her breathtaking beauty and stoic appearance. On the surface, it appears that Komi prefers not to talk to anyone because she is out of everyone’s league. However, her flawless public facade conveniently acts as a mask covering the sad reality that the school’s prettiest girl struggles with extreme social anxiety.
Her inner conflict, unfortunately, stands in her way, and Komi, as a result, has no friends. However, most of her classmates fail to see her for more than just her outward appearance and even wrongly perceive her anxiety as a refined class. Hirohito Tadano, an average student who sits next to Komi, soon figures out that she has trouble communicating with others. After accidentally getting knocked out and almost getting to talk to her, Hirohito vows to help Komi socialize and make at least one hundred friends.
Sadly, the teenager is in for a world of surprise as he had not even managed to get her to talk to him so far. The comical and captivating journey of Komi and Hirohito that follows is sure to make viewers fall in love with them. If you are looking for a light-hearted romantic-comedy anime, then look no further, ‘Komi-san wa, Comyushou desu.’ is all set to entertain you soon.
