Summary
  • Socially anxious high school student Shoko Komi would love to make friends, but her shyness is interpreted as reserve, and the other students keep her at a distance. Only timid Tadano realizes the truth, and despite his own desire to blend in, he decides to help her achieve her goal of making 100 friends --
  • V.1. Timid Tadano is a total wallflower, and that's just the way he likes it. But all that changes when he finds himself alone in a classroom on the first day of high school with the legendary Komi. He quickly realizes she isn't aloof - she's just super awkward. Now he's made it his mission to help her on her quest to make 100 friends
  • V.2. It's time for the national health exam at Itan High, and the excitement of eye exams and height measurements have fanned the flames of competition for the unremarkable Makeru Yadano. She's determined to beat the class idol Komi in the health test, and Komi's total obliviousness to their impassioned duel just feeds Makeru's determination. As the epic battle heats up, how will Komi hand her first rival when she's barely made her first friends?
  • V.3. Summer is about to begin, and Komi would love to be able to spend the long, hot vacation days hanging out with her friends. But even though she's made great strides in her personal quest, she still has problems communicating. For instance, making phone calls is so anxiety provoking that it keeps her up at night. Thankfully, Tadano always seems to know how to help her calm down
  • V.4. School is out for summer, and Komi is still getting used to this strange new world of having friends. She's discovering that friendship with a person doesn't automatically save you from awkward situations with them. But it does turn even an emergency homework session into something fun. And for the first time in her life, Komi isn't anxious for summer to end
  • V.5. Komi's friendship quest just hit its first major obstacle - the green-eyed monster. Tadano and a girl named Onemine have been hanging out a lot lately, and Komi doesn't know how to deal with her sudden flood of jealousy. She can't eplain what's wrong, so she ends up spying on them from the shadows. Will her creepy peeping lose her a chance at a new friend or push Tadano away?
  • V.6. Komi and her friends had an eventful cultural festival, so Najimi suggests they all go to karaoke to finish off the day with a song. Komi loves hanging out with everyone, but the stress of worrying about singing in front of them is threatening to ruin the whole outing for her. Can Komi find a way to overcome her fear, or will karaoke end the misery
  • V.7. Najimi's sudden declaration of a Christmas Eve party at Komi's house sends the friends into a flurry of last-minute gift shopping and Komi into a fit of worrying. But when her friends all turn up with good cheer and a giant stuffed animal for her, it turns out Najimi wasn't just being impulsive - there's a special surprise for Komi too
