I’m Bored: Talking About The Covers of Komi-san wa Komyusho desu

Komi-san Wa Komyusho Desu (Komi-san can’t communicate) by Oda Tomohito.

Magazine Published: Weekly Shonen Sunday

Summary (According to Mangakakalot): Komi-san is the beautiful and admirable girl that no-one can take their eyes off her. Almost the whole school sees her as the cold beauty out of their league, but Tadano Shigeo knows the truth: she’s just really bad at communicating with others. Komi-san, who wishes to fix this bad habit of hers, tries to improve it with the help of Tadano-kun.

Why do I recommend it: A really fun story with the interactions between the main characters being the star of the show.

The Signature Style of the Covers: Komi looking at us when she is at an event.

Warning: Spoilers Abound up until Chapter 70, and discussing about my thoughts on the characters who appears in the cover.

Warning to the anime viewers, spoilers abound.

Although specifically, I’m focused on manga about dancing & sports in general (recently, I have just finished all the chapters of King Golf which available online in English, really recommend it for a really great protagonist) and today I will be reviewing the 2 dance mangas that has been finished, Coda and Tetsugaku Letra, even though this review is according to my memory of 2 months before.

[Plus, this is a really sad excuse as I keep repeating some chapters of  Welcome To The Ballroom]

How the post came by during a long break: Browse at Manga Here, interested at the cover page of the Welcome to the Ballroom, spend my entire morning reading the chapters (strangely except for the first chapter) published, then looked at TvTropes for that page, see a manga with a similar premise called Straighten Up! Welcome to Shika High’s Competitive Dance Club, spend my entire afternoon reading the chapters (which are longer) published. And now we are here.

[Note: This is never a professional review]
