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.
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.
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.

Notable: This table assumes that the anime will air 12 episodes per season. There is no break in the middle of the season. These dates are subject to alter.
Shouko Komi starts her first day of school at a highly regarded private high school. She quickly rises through the ranks thanks to her stunning looks, long stature, and black hair. However, she’s terrible at communicating and scares away other students. Hitohito Tadano, another student, realizes Shouki's poor communication skills and has not had one friend. He makes it his top priority to make Shouki a hundred friends in order for her to overcome this communication disorder.
Anime fans can look forward to watching a highly exciting cast in action for Komi Can’t Communicate.
