Excitement For Komi Can’t Communicate Season 3: Inside Shoko Komi’s World
While the official announcement for the third season is still pending, given that the anime clinched the Crunchyroll Anime Award for Best Comedy in 2022, the demand for another season is evident. Typically, there’s a gap of about a year and a half to two years between anime seasons.
As the second season concluded on July 13, 2022, there is a waiting period. It’s plausible that an announcement for the new season might come by the end of 2023, with a potential release on streaming services in 2024.
Shoko Komi possesses undeniable allure, making her the object of admiration in her high school. Despite her appearance of perfection, she grapples with a significant character flaw—severe social anxiety that renders her incapable of talking to people.
Despite her stunning beauty and stoic demeanor, no one attempts to engage with her due to their own intimidation. The story unfolds in the year 2023, where Komi’s external poise contrasts sharply with her internal struggles.
