Hitohito Tadano meets Shoko Komi, a beautiful but quiet girl, on their first day at Itan Private High School. Due to her looks and quiet demeanor, Komi automatically becomes popular while Tadano becomes universally hated due to being assigned the desk next to hers. Tadano accidentally finds himself alone with Komi, who almost runs away when he talks to her, causing him to realize she actually suffers from severe social anxiety. As she cannot talk to people, Tadano suggests she write on the chalkboard and she is able to communicate that she wants to speak normally, but is unable to because of said anxiety. She apologizes for wasting Tadano's time and tries to leave, only for Tadano to write his own message on the board for her, allowing her to have her first real conversation with a friend. She reveals her dream is to make 100 friends and Tadano, now becoming her first one, promises to help find the other 99. The next morning, it is revealed the entrance exam for their school was a personality interview, meaning it is full of weirdos, loners, miscreants, and eccentrics. As such, the task will be harder than Tadano thought.

Tadano introduces Komi to Najimi Osana, his childhood friend who has the habit of switching their gender. Due to moving schools frequently, Najimi is the childhood friend of absolutely everybody. However, Najimi reveals they failed to become Komi's friend years ago, the shock of failure leaving them with difficulty being around Komi to this day, though they do agree to walk Komi home.

Tadano follows the two and sees that even Najimi struggles to have a conversation with Komi. Najimi is approached by the delinquent Maa, another childhood friend, who confesses his love. Najimi switches back to being male to reject him, but Maa is determined. Komi attempts to speak, but her stammering speech and unblinking stare convince Maa she is an assassin and he flees. Najimi decides to be Komi's friend for real.

Najimi begins eating lunch with Tadano and Komi, making Tadano even more unpopular. Tadano explains about Komi's desire for friends, so Najimi sends Komi to get a complicated coffee order by herself, claiming it is training to force Komi to speak. Despite several attempts, Komi gets the wrong coffee and cries, forcing Tadano and Najimi to apologize, though they both consider Komi's sulking cute.

Himiko Agari struggles to communicate and panics when Komi begins following her. Najimi advised Komi to befriend Agari since they both struggle with communication. Agari later thanks Komi for scaring her as it made it easier to communicate with her classmates. In gratitude, she decides to become Komi's lapdog.

Komi buys her first phone and is determined to ask everyone for their numbers. She manages to get Najimi's number, but Agari's lapdog routine puts her off from asking. Asking for Tadano's number is even more awkward when Agari accidentally ruins the moment.

Komi is elected class president against her will. Sensing her reluctance, Najimi instead has Komi voted class Goddess, while the more difficult role of president goes to Tadano with Najimi as vice-president.

Komi accidentally calls Tadano, leading to her awkward first phone call, which both she and Tadano are proud of achieving.

Komi is intrigued by the games played by popular students so Najimi invites her to join. However, everyone lets Komi win due to her popularity. Tadano sabotages the second game to spare Komi an embarrassing moment, adding to his unpopularity, but he is happy when Komi thanks him for helping her have fun.

During physical exams, Makeru Yadano, who hates to lose, is determined to beat Komi. Komi wins by having better eyesight, being taller, and weighing less. Yadano decides a physical exam proves nothing and insists the exam is a draw. Tadano scores completely average on the exam.

Ren Yamai, a popular girl, is obsessed with Komi and forces Najimi to introduce them. Tadano wakes up in Yamai's bedroom, Yamai having kidnapped him to keep him away from Komi. Najimi asks if she and Komi can visit Yamai's house and she agrees. Najimi finds Tadano in a closet, forcing Yamai to reveal her belief she would make a better friend than Tadano. She is shocked when Komi rejects her in favor of Tadano. Komi blames herself for what happened and asks if Tadano will still be her friend, even speaking out loud to him. Najimi brings Yamai to give a confusing apology for her actions. Komi decides Yamai can know about her social anxiety. Yamai is shocked to learn the truth, but decides being unable to speak just makes Komi even cuter and will help her find 100 friends. After a brief hesitation, Komi decides Yamai can be her friend too.

Komi is somehow even more attractive in her summer uniform.

Yadano is determined to beat Komi during fitness tests, but loses yet again. Komi is unable to shake her hand so Yadano becomes even more determined to beat her.

Najimi asks to visit Komi's house and they meet her very outgoing mother, Shūko. Najimi leaves Komi and Tadano alone together, but is disappointed that nothing happens. Najimi finds Komi's childhood photo album. Najimi sends Komi photos of their visit, which Komi saves in a photo frame.

Komi asks to visit a ramen shop so Agari takes everyone to Ramen Darou. There, Komi manages to follow all the unspoken rules perfectly, which earns her admiration.

Omoharu Nakanaka, a chūnibyō, claims Komi is Princess Komilia, her friend from a previous life. Tadano remembers acting similarly in middle school. Realizing Nakanaka is lonely, Komi volunteers to be Nakanaka's gym partner.

Najimi takes Tadano's umbrella and leaves a note, so Komi and Tadano share hers. She notices that he let his shoulder get wet to give her more cover. At a convenience store, Tadano realizes that Komi read Najimi's note and waited for him so they could share hers.

Komi attempts to tell a joke, but she has no situational humor or comedic timing. Tadano is similarly bad at joke telling, but Komi is impressed anyway.

Komi has never been clothes shopping before so everyone picks out clothes they think will suit her. Komi ends up buying a dress chosen by Tadano.

Komi goes to a beauty salon. Maki Karisu, the owner, knows Komi and can understand her, whereas her trainee, Kamiko Arai, thinks Komi's silence is a criticism of her customer service skills until Komi manages to thank her. The next day, only Tadano notices her haircut, making Komi happy.

Komi cannot sleep due to her overthinking about her failed conversations throughout the day, but eventually falls asleep thinking about Tadano helping her.

Najimi asks for help studying, but grows bored. After making too much noise in the school library, Najimi is punished. Everyone ultimately passes their exams. Yadano is furious Komi scored higher than her on every exam.

Over the summer, both Komi and Tadano spend the first week feeling lonely but are too nervous to call each other. Najimi unknowingly solves the problem by inviting them both to go swimming at the pool.

Despite feeling nervous, Komi makes it to the pool on time and wears the dress Tadano chose. Komi only owns a school swimsuit so Yamai forces her to buy a bikini. Komi later trips and scrapes her knee. Unable to enter the water, Komi sits alone. Tadano makes her feel better and pulls her into a shallow pool to keep her bandage dry, then panics when he realizes he held Komi's hand. After ending the day with a water gun fight, everyone heads home.

Komi decides to visit the library. Her father, who is also bad at communicating, goes with her and they get shaved ice. Through mostly non-verbal communication, they manage to talk about Komi's school life.

Komi finds a book but is too scared to ask to borrow it so she decides to read it. When her stare scares a baby, she manages to cheer him up. Tadano, who is also at the library, watches happily from nearby and forgets to return his own books.

Komi goes to a park and has fun while she is alone. A passing Tadano is awed by her beauty and again forgets to return his books.

Komi and her family visit their relatives. Despite being uneasy at first, Komi and her cousin Akira bond and play together. Komi is later summoned by her grandmother Yuiko to update her on her life. However, when asked if she likes a boy, Komi shakes nervously, which alerts her grandmother, who immediately discovers Tadano's name on her phone.

Komi and Tadano are invited by Najimi to a summer festival. Komi gets anxious, as she has forgotten to bring something to write on, prompting Tadano to say that he will help her. They visit some of the various stands and games, in which Komi beats Yadano in a shooting game and wins a video game console. Komi later manages to verbally compliment Tadano's look. While waiting for their friends, Komi writes with a stick that she really enjoyed her time alone with Tadano, only to quickly erase it before he can see it.

Komi, Najimi, and Yamai visit Tadano's home, where they meet Tadano's sister, Hitomi. There, they reminisce about how much fun they had during the summer. They notice Komi crying as she explains she actually does not want the summer to end for the first time.

The semester after summer vacation begins. Nokoko Inaka is distressed because she is from the countryside. After overhearing that Komi is going to buy Najimi a sandwich, she follows her to learn how to order food like a city girl.

Nakanaka invites Komi to hang out at her house. Nervous at having Komi at her house by herself, she invites Najimi, who brings along Tadano. They play a video game, and Tadano manages to teach Komi how to play.

On their day off, Najimi asks Komi and Tadano to help distribute tissues in a retail store. Despite a difficult start, Komi becomes more confident when she finally manages to give a tissue to a woman, and distributes the whole box by the end of the day.

Tadano shows up in class with a seed stuck on his face, but Komi is too nervous to tell him. After realizing that he calls Najimi by their first name, she asks him to call her by her first name too. Tadano is unable to do so. When told by Najimi to also call Tadano by his first name to set the example, Komi, embarrassed, fails at doing so as well.

Oblivious to the result of the race, Komi's friends come to her aid, much to Netsuno's delight.

Komi experiences jealousy for the first time as fellow classmate Nene Onemine is helping Tadano with his excessive class president duties. One evening, Onemine is helping Tadano before Komi arrives and offers her help, which Tadano accepts. Sensing Komi's affection towards Tadano, Onemine leaves the two of them alone. Onemine later befriends Komi and apologizes for interfering.

Komi goes to a mall photo booth with her friends, much to her delight. In an arcade, Tadano sees a cat keychain in a claw game, and wins it for Komi. Three days later, he wants to give it to her at school, but she already got one, so they exchange them. Komi arrives home from school, where she holds onto Tadano's keychain tightly.

Komi's class is undecided about what they want to do for the upcoming culture festival. Komi quietly confides to Tadano that she would like to do a maid café. The whole class hears this and immediately agrees.

Onemine and Kaede Otori, another girl from Komi's class, are entrusted with getting the materials for the festival. Otori asks Komi to help them, which she agrees. Afterwards, Komi reveals to Otori that she had always felt useless to her classmates back in middle school, and felt really happy when she asked her for help.

Komi, Najimi, and Tadano distribute flyers for the festival. Komi nervously hands them to people they have met, including the mother of the baby she befriended at the library.

The girls, including Komi and Najimi, surprise the boys with onigiri. When Komi realizes Tadano picked the one she made, she is elated, which Onemine notices.

Komi, Najimi, and Tadano dress as maids during the festival. While the boys feel uncomfortable around Tadano, Komi responds positively to his new look, as she thinks he looks adorable. Tadano is later made fun of by Hitomi, who takes a picture of him to show to their mother.

At the festival, Najimi decides to use shady tactics in order to attract more customers. However, they are caught and forced to provide refunds. Komi, Tadano, and Najimi later visit a haunted house and the school's rooftop confessions before Najimi is dragged away by the meditation club. Komi and Tadano then hang out with Onemine and Otori by visiting the various stalls and activities.

In the gymnasium, Komi's class is announced as the winners of the festival. However, thanks to Najimi's actions, they are not awarded the grand prize. Everyone later gathers for the dance party. Komi wishes to dance with Tadano, who nervously tries to lead to the way. They are then joined by an enthusiastic Najimi.

After the festival, Komi's class head to a karaoke bar. There, Komi receives praise for her singing, even though she was too nervous to actually do so. When it is Tadano's turn, he is ignored by almost everyone except Komi, which gives him the motivation needed to finish. Later at her house, Komi cherishes the friends she has made so far.

At school, after Najimi gently grazes Komi's cheek with their hand, Komi decides to do the same to Tadano. Outside their classroom, Najimi hands a small notebook to Komi, telling her to write the names of all the friends she has made so far. She nervously hands Tadano the notebook so he can write his name first.

Makoto Katai, a nervous new student, arrives in class. However, his intimidating appearance deters anyone from talking to him. Tadano ultimately endears himself to Katai when he talks to him.

Nakanaka invites everyone over to her house. When they arrive, Yamai gets on Nakanaka's nerves, prompting them to argue. When Komi responds that they are both equally important to her, an unsatisfied Nakanaka challenges them to play a video game, which Najimi wins.

During an exam, Komi drops her pencil, but is too afraid to ask the teacher to pick it up. Tadano sees this and helps her by intentionally dropping his own pencil. Tadano later realizes he does not have an eraser, so Komi decides to return the favor. Afterwards, they are both too embarrassed to concentrate. Back home, Tadano does not allow Hitomi to use the eraser Komi gave him.

Tadano's male classmates sit together, and each of them describes how a romantic relationship would look like with their female classmates. However, when they cannot think of one involving Komi, Tadano does so and he embarrasses himself as a result.

Komi, Onemine, and Otori visit a cat café. While Komi loves cats, none want to play with her, leaving her jealous of Otori. However, a black cat named Chocolat approaches and lets Komi pet her, delighting her as Onemine takes a picture.

Yamai and Najimi play the "I Love You Game" with Komi in order to see her response to the words "I love you" coming from different people. When it is Tadano's turn, he is interrupted before he can say it. Komi excuses herself, and outside the classroom, thinks about how she wanted him to finish the phrase.

On Christmas Eve, Komi panics when she reads a message from Najimi, challenging her to buy presents for all her friends. She brings Shousuke along. Meanwhile, everyone meets at the mall, where Najimi challenges them to buy a present that Komi likes the best. As they cannot decide, Tadano proposes to buy her a massive black cat plushie. Later that day, they arrive at Komi's house, where they present her the plushie as a joint Christmas-birthday gift, as her birthday is on the 25th. As they enter, almost everyone competes to decide their place to sit. However, Komi chooses to sit next to Tadano. They then play the King Game, where everyone is given a number written on a stick, and the King gets to order a number to perform actions on another. As they play, Komi is ordered to dress like Santa Claus by Najimi, while Tadano is dared to kiss Shinobino on the cheek by Komi's mother, as Komi watches attentively. When it is her turn as King, Komi orders everyone to remain her friend. After they leave, Komi sends a Christmas message to all her friends while caressing her new plushie.

Komi, Tadano, and Najimi decide to make snowmen. After Tadano makes a small snowman, he helps his friends create a much larger one. Komi then makes a snowman herself, and places it next to Tadano's.

Tadano and his friends engage in a snowball fight with a group of elementary school children, who are joined by a reluctant Komi. While Tadano's team easily eliminates the children, Yamai betrays her remaining teammates when they begin to take aim at Komi. As such, the children look at Komi with admiration.

Komi and her family visit Yuiko's household for New Year's Eve. Komi happily reunites with Akira, who teaches Komi how to play hanafuda. However, Yuiko arrives and wagers with Akira, stripping her of her New Year's money after defeating her. Komi then avenges Akira.

Komi accompanies her grandmother to a shrine on New Year's Day. While they pray, Yuiko asks Komi if her wish from the previous year came true, which Komi confirms. After one of Yuiko's friends explains one of his miko will be unavailable, Komi joins Inaka in attending the stall. Komi later thanks Inaka for her help, wishing for them to get along this year.

Najimi and Tadano call all their friends to visit the shrine. As they arrive, they all rush inside, but Komi stays behind with Tadano. They then get their fortunes read, where Komi ultimately reveals she got good luck this year.

Katai gathers his courage to invite Tadano to an ice rink. When he goes to meet Tadano, he is shocked when he sees Komi came as well. Tadano quickly realizes that Katai and Komi do not know how to skate. When he tries to teach Komi first, he becomes too embarrassed. Tadano then switches over to Katai, and after saving him from falling, guides him by holding his hand while a confused Komi watches.

Tadano is confined to his bed after he comes down with a fever. He tries to call Najimi for help, but accidentally calls Komi instead. He hears the doorbell and is shocked to see that Komi has come to visit him. She offers to cook for him, but she embarrasses herself when she tries to spoon-feed him. Sometime later, Komi notices that Tadano has fallen asleep, so she goes to hold his hand, only to be interrupted by an arriving Najimi.

Komi ponders if Najimi saw her holding Tadano's hand, so she writes a letter to them. However, she becomes embarrassed.

At school, after Komi hands Najimi the letter, Tadano asks her what she did after he called her, prompting her to flee. He then asks Najimi, who answers that Komi was checking his pulse. In the bathroom, Komi feels further embarrassment.

Shisuto Naruse, a narcissist, tries to approach Komi for the first time, but is overwhelmed by their classmates. He leaves the room nervously, and outside, Komi gives him his fallen handkerchief. Delighted, he asks for her contact information, but she bolts away. He instead resorts to sending his selfies to Tadano.

Tadano asks Komi what places they should go on their upcoming school trip to Kyoto. On their walk back home, Tadano notices Komi is feeling down, but she denies this. After they part ways, Komi calls Tadano when he is out of sight. She explains that she is scared of going, as she felt excluded when her middle school class planned their trip. Tadano tells her that she has real friends now, and invites her to go together. She accepts, expressing her newfound enthusiasm to go.

Komi arrives at the train station to meet with her friends. While on the train, the two girls in her group, Mikuni Katō and Ayami Sasaki, agree to make Komi's trip a memorable one. When class 1-1 arrives in Kyoto, they meet with their tour guide, Ryouko Tenjouin. However, she is quickly disheartened by the lack of interest from the class. Throughout the journey, Tenjouin keeps maintaining her composure, attempting to show the different locations to the class, to no avail. However, she is reinvigorated when she notices Komi and Tadano are paying attention. Komi and Tadano later break away from the group to admire the local architecture together, much to Tenjouin's delight. The class then arrives at their hotel where Komi and the girls take a bath, while she refuses Yamai's advances. Meanwhile, the boys ask Tadano to take pictures of them, and Komi finds herself confused when she sees Tadano's excitement. Back in their room, the girls have a pillow fight, which Komi takes part in. However, they all pretend to be asleep when the teacher checks on them. Later that night, Komi is unable to fall asleep.

Komi hangs out with Katō and Sasaki. However, they are late to accomplish their tight schedule. Before Katō and Sasaki can quarrel, Komi shows them their pictures thus far, which calms them down. Next, Komi dresses as a maiko and is made part of a street performance. Unaware of the situation, Sasaki "saves" Komi with her yo-yo skills. That night, Sasaki keeps denying that she was the person that saved Komi, but Katō finds evidence in her phone that she is a professional yo-yo artist. Sasaki finally agrees to show them her yo-yo skills when Komi thanks her for saving her. Later, while talking about crushes, Komi asks Katō and Sasaki what does having one feel like, so they try to explain. Realizing she does have a crush, Komi writes the first letter of their name. The next day, when Komi falls asleep on the train, Katō and Sasaki set up a ruse to get her and Tadano together. After she wakes up on his shoulder, an embarrassed Komi immediately apologizes. Tadano then asks her if she enjoyed the trip, which she confirms.

Onemine invites Komi to her house to make chocolates for Valentine's Day. Alongside Otori and Onemine's younger siblings, she bakes a chocolate cake. While they wait, the kids get Komi to talk, and plead her to use her voice more, which she accepts. At school, Komi receives chocolate from her friends and she gives the ones she made back. Meanwhile, Katai manages to give his to Tadano, while Komi feels guilty for being unable to do so. Tadano arrives home depressed, having not received any more chocolate, and Hitomi tries to cheer him up. When Tadano heads outside, he sees Komi. Sitting in a swing set, Tadano believes Komi will give him chocolate. However, she gives him a form sent by Najimi before they part ways. As Tadano wonders if Komi hates him, Komi forces herself to run back to him and shout his name. She then gives him chocolate, much to Tadano's delight. However, after Komi tells him how this chocolate is the best from the batch she made, she bolts away in embarrassment.

At school, Komi's friends thank her for the chocolate. However, she dreads facing Tadano when she recalls what happened. During class, a small tear appears on one of Komi's tights, and Yamai ultimately gives her a new pair in the bathroom, which Komi thanks. However, Yamai wears Komi's tore tights on her head and runs off while Komi chases her, as a confused Tadano observes Komi's bare legs and accidentally sees up her skirt.

Akako Onigashima, normally friendly and energetic, gets periodically angrier when things do not go her way. When her earphones get tangled, she reaches her limit, but Komi helps her. Onigashima then invites Komi to the batting cage, solidifying their friendship.

Amami Satou, a very sweet and calm girl, has trouble saying no to people. However, she finally learns to ask for help herself after she interacts with Komi and Tadano. As such, they help Satou clean the classroom every morning.

Komi and Tadano have a fight for the first time after they cannot agree on how to solve a shogi problem proposed by Katō. However, after they are made aware of their frustration by Najimi, Tadano apologizes to Komi, which she smugly accepts.

At home, Tadano thinks about what to give Komi for White Day. He asks Hitomi for help, but she believes his gift is meant for a boy, as she thinks Katai's chocolate was the only one he received. As such, Hitomi asks Tadano if he likes that person, to which he nervously answers. She then accompanies him to a department store. Tadano later goes to Komi's house, where he is greeted by Shuko and meets Masayoshi. However, Komi arrives and nervously kicks her father out of her room, and tidies it up. Tadano then gives her his gift, and Komi is delighted by the hand cream she receives. After Tadano leaves, Komi applies the cream onto her hands.

At school, Komi and her classmates play a game where everyone's erasers are placed on a desk, and players must bump enemy erasers off them. Near the end, Najimi prepares to eliminate Komi, but injures their finger, allowing Komi to win. After school, Komi and Tadano reflect on their approaching second year, but their moment is interrupted by Najimi. On their first day as second-years, Komi wishes that she and Tadano can have another good year.

Drama[edit]

An eight-episode live-action television drama adaptation was broadcast on NHK General TV from September 6[37][38][39] to November 1, 2021.[40] Aiko performed the series' theme song.[41]

Reception[edit]

Komi Can't Communicate won the 67th Shogakukan Manga Award in the shōnen category in 2022.[42][43] Polygon named the manga as one of the best comics of 2019.[44]

As of September 2018, the first ten tankōbon volumes had over 2 million copies in circulation.[45] As of February 2021, the first twenty tankōbon volumes had over 5.2 million copies in circulation.[46] As of December 2021, the manga had over 6 million copies in circulation.[47] As of June 2022, the manga had over 7.4 million copies in circulation.[48]

The series ranked first in a 2020 poll conducted by AnimeJapan of "Most Wanted Anime Adaptation".[49][50] The series won the Crunchyroll Anime Award for best comedy at the 6th Crunchyroll Anime Awards in 2022.[51] Shoko Komi was also nominated for the "Best Girl" category while the series was nominated for the "Best Romance" award.

Critical response[edit]

In a review of the first volume from Anime News Network, Rebecca Silverman called the series "a nice little story with humor and a distinct lack of cruelty that doesn't break any new barriers but is definitely fun to read." Faye Hopper considered that it is hard to tell if the humor of the series lies in Komi's "seemingly outlandish, absurd behavior" or if it is a "legitimate depiction of anxiety that we laugh at because we relate." Hopper also called the character of Najimi a "transphobic punchline", criticizing the jokes about their gender fluidity, calling them "extremely tasteless", and that they "undermines the book's message by making light of an already marginalized community." Nevertheless, Hopper stated that the series "succeeds in spite of a potentially noxious premise," pointing out that the other characters are "just as dysfunctional as the eponymous Komi, creating a solid base of compassion and doing a good job [of] not casting her as a weird social outlier."[52]
