Komi Can’t Communicate is finally back for Season 2 in Japan, and the series has celebrated its new episodes by debuting its full opening and ending themes for the new season! Hitohito Oda’s original manga franchise was one of the most anticipated adaptation debuts last year as fans were drawn to the titular Komi and he journey to making 100 friends. The first season of the anime was just as much of a hit as expected, and thus it was no real surprise to see that there were already plans to bring the series back for a second season just a year later.
While Komi Can’t Communicate‘s second season won’t start its run with Netflix around the world until later this month, the series has begun airing its episodes in Japan. This means fans have already gotten to see the new opening and ending theme sequences in action, but now fans everywhere can check them out too! The new opening theme for the season is titled “Ao 100 Iro” as performed by Miko Ito, and the new ending theme is titled “Koshaberi Biyori” as performed by FantasticYouth. You can check them both out below as officially released by ShoPro:
Directed by Kazuki Kawagoe for OLM, Komi Can’t Communicate is now airing Season 2 in Japan as of this writing but will begin its international release on Netflix on April 27th. Like the first season, new episodes will be dropped on a weekly basis once they start so fans won’t be that behind the new season’s original run in Japan!
