Netflix will debut the anime outside of Japan on October 21, two weeks after its Japanese premiere, with weekly new episodes. Netflix will stream the anime in over 190 countries and territories in eight languages dubbed and 31 languages subtitled.

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.

Atsuko Nakajima (Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom, Ranma ½, Tokyo Ghoul:re) is designing the characters.
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!
