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. The series is being animated by OLM and directed by Ayumu Watanabe.
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.
New episodes will be released on a weekly basis every Thursday.
Komi Can’t Communicate episode release schedule
Episodes of the anime will begin broadcasting in Japan on October 7th, 2021, which means there is a two-week gap between the Japanese broadcast and Netflix release date.
The reason for the delay between the Japanese broadcast and Netflix release date is likely due to the number of nations Netlfix will have to provide subtitles for.
