Komi Can’t Communicate Synopsis
Viz Media hold the license for the English version of the manga and has added a synopsis for the series:
Komi Can’t Communicate is a slice of life, school-based rom-com. Shouko Komi is what is known as a bishoujo, or a stunningly beautiful girl. But as it turns out, her elegance and stoic demeanour is rather misunderstood. She is an awkward person and does not know how to communicate, thus the title. In this coming of age story, Komi slowly grows to learn how to make friends and communicate with people around her.
