Filled with incredibly designed and amazingly written characters, the show manages to give us an experience that we couldn’t have even imagined. Therefore, to appreciate these fantastic characters here’s a list of the Best Characters From Komi-San Can’t Communicate.


I hope you enjoy it.




1. Shouko Komi


shouko komi


Let’s start this list with the obvious choice. This is our gorgeous Komi San. She is a high school student who is known for her exceptional beauty and intelligence, but is also extremely shy and struggles with communication, hence the title “Komi-san can’t communicate.” Despite her social anxiety, Shouko is very kind and compassionate toward others and goes out of her way to help those in need.


She is often described as having long, flowing black hair and big, sparkling eyes that complement her striking features. Although she may appear to be unapproachable at first, those who get to know her, discover that she has a warm and caring personality and a quirky sense of humour.


Komi’s presence in the series and her personality overall is the heart of the anime altogether. And if she were to be out of the screen for a long time, it wouldn’t be incorrect to say that things will start to fall off for the anime as a whole. 




2. Najimi Osana


Najimi Osana


Next up on our list is the very beautiful Najimi Osana, a character that managed to take the audience off guard. They are a classmate and close friend of our main character, Shouko Komi.


Najimi is known for their outgoing personality and friendly nature, which often serves as a contrast to Shouko’s shyness. They are depicted as having long, curly brown hair and warm smile that lights up their face.


Najimi is often seen as the life of the party, always eager to make new friends and bring people together. They are an amazing listener who is always there to support all those around them.




3. Hitohito Tadano

Next up is our amazing boy Hitohito Tadano. Man, he is absolutely amazing for a contrasting main character in the series. Hitohito is known for having a very basic nature going on for himself.


And that’s what makes him so special to the audience. This man is known for having insane observational skills that allow him to understand the other person’s emotions very well.


Tadano’s realization that Komi san needs new friends, makes him an incredible friend himself. And the fact that this man took the time and effort to support Komi san in her endeavour to find new friends, makes him so special in the first place. 




4. Nene Onemine


nene onemine


This girl is filled with energy. And you can sense that right across the screen in the series. Nene is depicted as a supportive and caring person, often acting as an older sister figure to her friends.


She is shown to be observant and has a close relationship with Shouko. Throughout the series, Nene plays a supportive role and is a friend to the main characters, Komi and Tadano, as well as other members of the class.


She joins the class at the right moment and from that point forward, she goes on to make some remarkable changes to the overall flow of the anime, making her worthy of all the love and respect that she gets. 



5. Otori Kaede


Otori Kaede


She used to be a classmate in our anime. However, things seem to have changed now. Otori is known for having a gentle and lackadaisical attitude toward everything. With her long black hair and greenish tinge, her appearance captures the attention of the audience very well.


She seems to be a daydreamer who wants to enjoy life to the fullest. And that’s what makes her so captivating in the first place. Otori is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to her personality as we see in various chapters including chapter 5. And when Otori gets into doing something, she will go on and on.



6. Komi Shousuke


Komi Shousuke


Time to talk about the younger brother, ladies, and gentlemen. This is the story of Komi Shousuke who may look like a hentai protagonist at first but has a very calm nature altogether.


Just like his father and sister, he also chooses to stay quiet most of the time. However, unlike them, he doesn’t have any issues speaking whenever he feels like it.


And that’s what adds a layer of complexity to his character. He seems to be silent, not because he can’t communicate but because he is apathetic. And that’s why exploring his character in this narrative is so much worth it.



7. Ren Yamai


Ren Yamai


She is described as having a perverted obsession with Komi Shouko, her classmate, and acts as a stalker toward her. Despite her cute appearance, Ren has a dark side, as she is a yandere who has been known to stalk Komi and even kidnap Tadano, Komi’s friend.


However, her love for Komi is genuine and she tries to be closer to her, but her perverted behaviour often makes her plans fail. Ren is a leader in the girl’s group in Class-1 and is a member of Shouko’s entourage, whom she calls “Komi-sama”.


Despite her initial scheme against Tadano, she eventually learned to tolerate him and became one of Shouko’s companions. Throughout the story, she has attempted various tactics to get close to Komi, including taking panty shots and touching her.



8. Nakanaka Omoharu


Nakanaka Omoharu


This character is entertaining on so many different levels. And that’s why things are so engaging for the audience because of her. Nakanaka Omoharu happenes to be in a Chunnibyou phase.


And so, she calls herself “Arsot Les Primavera” and Komi-san “Princess Komilia”. Don’t ask questions about it. While it may seem like she has an offputting nature, a lot of people do like the way she behaves and that’s why she has such a popular name going on for herself.


After all, there’s nothing more entertaining than a girl who does some weird stuff on screen.



9. Rumiko Manbagi


rumiko manbagi


This girl caught the audience’s attention without breaking a sweat. And that’s what makes her so exceptional to the viewers in the first place. She is introduced in the second year of high school and quickly becomes friends with the protagonist, Shouko Komi, and Hitohito Tadano.


Manbagi is a cheerful and energetic girl with a gyaru fashion sense and bleached blonde hair. She is depicted as being somewhat naive and insecure, but also friendly and talkative.


She is a typical tsundere who has developed feelings for Tadano and therefore, she loses her mind at times, when she is in front of him. However, even if we keep Tadano aside, Manbagi’s character goes way beyond your typical tsundere.
