Komi Can’t Communicate, Vol. 1 – Tomohito Oda


I’ve been meaning to pick this one up for ages and I’m glad I did.

The premise of this manga is exactly the title – Komi, the appointed “princess” of her class, has always been mistaken as an aloof icy girl…but in reality she just can’t communicate.

When someone talks to her or when she tries to talk to someone, she just freezes up.

And while it might look cool or snobbish or like she’s ignoring her classmates – the reality is that she just doesn’t know what to say or do.

Along comes Tadano – who on the first day of high school is determined to jump outside of his timid shell…and a chance encounter with Komi sparks their friendship.

Komi wants to make 100 friends and Tadano is going to help her!!

Overall, I felt like this one worked quite well.

The art was great, the storyline was compelling and I enjoyed watching Komi come out of her shell. I’m really excited to see where this series goes!!
