School comedy anime premieres on October 6

The official website for the television anime of Tomohito Oda's Komi Can't Communicate (Comi-san wa Comyushō desu.) manga revealed three more cast members on Wednesday. The newly announced cast members are:

Junya Enoki as Shо̄suke Komi, Shо̄ko Komi's younger brother, who is capable of doing anything alone without the need for communication

Maaya Uchida as Hitomi Tadano, Hitohito Tadano's younger sister, who is not considered as "normal" as her older brother. She is polite and never misses greeting Komi and friends when they visit her home. She has an unfaltering mental and unworldly perception, and she is good at ventriloquism.

Previously announced cast members include:

Aoi Koga as Shōko Komi

Gakuto Kajiwara as Hitohito Tadano

Rie Murakawa as Najimi Osana

Rina Hidaka as Ren Yamai

Rumi Okubo as Omoharu Nakanaka

Yukiyo Fujii as Himiko Agari

Ami Maeshima as Makeru Yadano

Sarah Emi Bridcutt as Akako Onigashima

Kenji Akabane as Shigeo Chiarai

Yuga Sato as Taisei Sonoda

Kensho Ono as Mono Shinobino

Additionally, Noriko Hidaka is narrating the anime.

The anime will premiere on TV Tokyo and other channels on October 6 at 12:00 a.m (effectively, October 7).

Kitri will perform the ending theme song "Hikareinochi."

Ayumu Watanabe (Mysterious Girlfriend X, After the Rain, Children of the Sea) is the chief director for the anime, while Kazuki Kawagoe (Beyblade Burst God storyboarder and episode director) is directing the anime at OLM. Deko Akao (Snow White with the Red Hair, Noragami, Flying Witch) is in charge of series composition. Atsuko Nakajima (Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom, Ranma ½, Tokyo Ghoul:re) is designing the characters.

Viz Media is releasing the manga in English, and it describes the story:

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!

Oda launched the manga in Weekly Shonen Sunday in May 2016, after first publishing a one-shot version of the manga in September 2015. Shogakukan published the manga's 22nd compiled book volume on August 18. Viz Media published the manga's 14th volume on August 10.

The manga is also inspiring a live-action series that will premiere on September 6 at 10:45 p.m. JST on NHK General's "Yorudora" late-night drama block.
