Following up on the recent exciting announcement that the Blue Period anime will be released on Netflix on a weekly basis, the streaming service has revealed that a second anime, Komi Can’t Communicate, will also be released weekly on Netflix starting in October 2021. Below is everything we know so far about Komi Can’t Communicate, including the plot, cast, trailer, and Netflix episode release dates.

Komi Can’t Communicate is an upcoming internationally licensed Japanese Netflix Original anime series adapted from the manga of the same name by author Tomohito Oda. Ayumu Watanabe is the director and OLM animations are used.

Since the manga made its debut in Weekly Shōnen Sunday in May 2016, there has been a total of 22 published volumes.

When is the Komi Can’t Communicate season 1 Netflix release date?

The first episode of Komi Can’t Communicate will have its Netflix debut on Thursday, October 21st, 2021.

It’s currently unknown how many episodes of Komi Can’t Communicate will make up the first season. But it’s our assumption that the season will have approximately 12 or 13 episodes like traditional anime seasons.

Every Thursday, new episodes of the show will air.

Komi Can’t Communicate episode release schedule

The anime episodes will start broadcasting in Japan from October 7, 2021. There is therefore a gap of two weeks between Japanese broadcasts and Netflix releases.

Due to the fact that Netlfix has to subtitle for many countries, the delay in the Japanese broadcast's release is probable.
