Komi Can’t Communicate Episode 12 Review- See you Later, Komi-San!
In case you missed the news, I’m happy to inform you that Komi-san isn’t leaving our screens for a long time. Komi Can’t Communicate Season 2 has already been announced for just three months from now, as it starts in April 2022. It appears that the show was popular and high-quality enough for the corporate big-wigs to notice and order another season of. I couldn’t be happier about this news, and if any other series has earned a sequel more, I do not know of it.

It has been a seriously impressive run of 12 episodes for this show, and the show went out with a bang, as most people expected. The show’s finale had big promises to fulfil after setting up an entire school festival in the previous episode and starting its first two-parter that way. While that setup was fantastic on its own, the execution of this episode blew everything out of the water with how charming and funny the entire thing was.
The episode began with the conclusion of the Maid-Cafe segment with an amazing performance by Najimi’s voice actress that filled the scene with enough comic timing and personality to last us the entire three months the show will be out. The voice acting in the show is great in general, but Rie Murakawa’s Osana Najimi is the standout whichever way you look at it. The energy she brings to the table is so infectious that it brightens up the whole show when she’s around. Her being funny as well is just a bonus.
Speaking about brightening up the show, there were a ton of Komi shenanigans in Komi san Episode 12. If you expected anything different, I don’t know what to tell you. The confession/advertisement, enjoying the other classes’ festival offerings, especially the dance, was well done. Komi makes people root for her like few other characters have been able to in the past, and that’s a testament to how well written she is. The show is taking the Tadano-Komi relationship really slowly, which is fine since we have another season to fill now.
The final segment of this season was a celebratory karaoke session with all the friends Komi has been able to make so far. It was thematically a perfect end to the show, with everyone’s personalities being showcased organically one last time in the season. It also incorporated the opening and ending themes in a fantastic way, leading to a lovely post-credits scene that announced the next season better than I’ve ever seen anyone do before, save for My Hero Academia. Overall, Komi Episode 12 was the perfect end to a perfect anime season.
Komi Can’t Communicate Episode 12 ended this season in a manner that can only be called perfect. It managed to showcase all the characters and connections the shoe has made so far organically while remaining entertaining and funny like always. Season 2 can’t come soon enough.Follow us on Instagram & Facebook to keep yourself updated with the latest news and reviews.
