Check out more reviews @ Perspective of a Writer...
Komi is super popular despite her aloof reputation. Only timid Tadano seems to notice that she doesnt talk... ever! When she reaches out to him on the first day of class he quickly realizes its awkwardness holding her back. Now hell become her first friend in her quest to make 100 friends.
I cant help myself when I learn a character is awkward I just relate too much to pass them by... so I HAD to read Komi Cant Communicate vol 1. I totally fell for Komi just like every other fool in their school. She had the best look, a wonderful combination of stern superiority and cool elegance. Who can resist that?! Stronger readers than me! And I really relate to her communication disorder. I dont have it near as bad as she does but it can be very isolating. She is quite brave to speak up at Tadanos easy friendliness.
I love the range of things that Komi experiences through Komi Cant Communicate vol 1. This has a feel of a slice of life because time at school simply passes and its only the different situations she gets into that shows passage of time. But its not all about making friends. Its also about social situations that will bring pressure onto Komi due to her social anxiety! I love the way Tomohito Oda at times shows these situations from one POV in one chapter and another in another chapter. It gives this unexpected edge to what could feel like your typical situations.
I totally relate to every instance of communication overload that Komi experiences in Komi Cant Communicate vol 1. And I adored that Tadano would follow her on her missions to see how she did. It made my heart melt. Social anxiety is really hard because people look at you like youre a freak when you cant respond the way they expect. Because she is so popular this isnt a wide spread problem she deals with... but it does infringe on her ability to befriend others. As we see with Osana!
Actually Osana is one of my favorite characters after Komi. Her exact opposite this trans character is so refreshingly social that is makes for super funny situations. It also allows Osana to push Komi where Tadano would have dithered.
The intriguing thing is the way Komi Cant Communicate vol 1 is set up. The chapters are the shortest Ive ever seen. They arent the one page deals like found in Satoko and Nada lacking in any sort of plot (thank goodness). But they arent like your typical manga with long chapters (there are 4 times more chapters in Komi than in most other mangas). At first I was worried but I found I really loved these short chapters. They were fun and held one idea that propelled the plot forward. This is the type of manga you have around to flip through when you need a break from heavy reading.
And I did quite enjoy the visuals! I loved the detailed backgrounds and the exaggerated expressions. And the character designs quite captured me, especially Komi. I loved the contrast of her situation to her appearance. Komi Cant Communicate vol 1 really was quite enchanting from the art to the story!
Komi Cant Communicate vol 1 is about a girl with social anxiety. Its hard for her to even talk to others, as a result, even though shes quite popular at her school she is isolated and friendless... Until she meets Tadano! The perfect boy to help her make friends and take the steps needed to full communication mode. I cant wait to see what they get up to in volume 2...!
