The English dub of the Komi Can’t Communicate anime—based on the manga by Tomohito Oda—is officially available to stream on Netflix, so now we know who will be voicing the characters of the fan-favorite adaptation. Leading the charge is Amber Lee Connors in the role of Shoko Komi, and according to her announcement she couldn’t be more excited for the opportunity.
Here’s what Connors had to say on Twitter:
I’m beyond ecstatic to announce you can hear me as ✨Shoko Komi✨ in ✨Komi Can’t Communicate✨ This role is incredibly special to me, as someone who grew up with severe social anxiety & worked hard to overcome it. You can check the dub out on Netflix now!🐈⬛ pic.twitter.com/lbLGhmf9uv

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!
