A new trailer revealing the adaptation was released on Tuesday, showcasing some of the animation style and a brief look at footage from the show as well.

Viz Media, which publishes the manga, summarizes the story as such

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!
