When fans are debating over extended romantic comedies, the manga of tomohito ode, Komi-san wa, Komyushou Desu (Komi Can’t Communicate) always comes up. Originally promoted as a school comedy cut, Komi-san’s story isn’t really focused on romance, this being the reason why some followers of romantic comedies are constantly stressed with the null advancement of the romantic relationship of the protagonists.
To enter into context, it must be remembered that Shouko Komi and Tadano Hitohito officially became a couple and declared it before everyone in Chapter 306, published in June 2021. However, the relationship between the two had not “taken the next step” until now, since, although they had held hands and shared many moments together, they had never kissed until the most recent chapter. Yes, that was the surprise that Oda finally delivered to those who waited more than two years: Shouko Komi and Tadano Hitohito have finally kissed. This was the case in Chapter 411 of the play, more than a hundred chapters after they became a couple! More than two years after they got engaged! It was certainly a surprise to everyone, since the development of the most recent chapters did not give any indication that this was going to happen.
And it is that we remember that Komi-san wa, Komyushou Desu is not a romance manga, but focuses on presenting comedy situations often starring secondary characters. And these characters are not few, there are dozens and dozens of characters that eventually appear again in the new chapters! After all, Shouko Komi’s goal is to make a hundred friends (and now a boyfriend) at school, so it’s understandable that there are so many side stories that slow the progress of the main story.
Anyway, in this new chapter, Tadano and Komi had a date on the last day of a regional festival. Since it was the last day, it looks like they were unlucky. Both of them were late for the appointment and the food stalls were completely depleted of resources. To make matters worse, it began to rain heavily, so both of them had to take shelter under a nearby roof. And so, without warning, they both closed the chapter with their first kiss.
And let’s check out the comments from people who are still reading this popular manga: “I can’t contain my happiness, it’s as simple as that.” “This chapter was amazing, it’s all I needed to be able to trust Tomohito Oda again.” “I am very sorry for all those who stopped reading this manga before being able to read this blessed chapter.” “Yes, you have to admit that all the stuffing in Komi-san is impressive in quantity, but these kinds of surprises really make you forget all of that.” “I can finally die in peace, it took two years for this moment to come.” “I love how, even though everything went wrong, they’re both completely happy that they’re together.” “I’m 43 years old and the father of two children, I shouldn’t have a lump in my throat reading that, but I do and I’m not even ashamed.” “What the hell was going on? I am very satisfied with all this, nobody expected that it would happen! Yes, this chapter really sums up what life is, yes, even if you prepared for everything or maybe planned something that you are sure of, there will always be a storm to blow it away and maybe a bit of bad luck and timing. . All we have to do is move on with the sadness of knowing it’s worthless or make the best of it and make it worth it, because at the end of a really bad day, if you want enough, you’ll get something as sweet as a kiss”. “Oh! I can’t believe this moment has finally arrived!” Yes, this is what I really wanted to see. The romance between the two protagonists!». “Komi-san certainly re-establishes itself as the best romantic comedy, and it’s not even its main genre!” “While Komi-san is already kissing her first love, Nagatoro has to wait for Senpai’s coward to fulfill his conditions.” © オダトモヒト (著) / 小学館
