One of many main promoting factors of Komi Cannot Talk is the budding romance between Shoko Komi and protagonist Hitohito Tadano. What began off as slightly crush in Season 1 is being developed right into a full-blown romantic attraction in Season 2, with each Komi and Tadano wrestling with their feelings. Extra anxiety-inducing but? They’re each struggling to specific their emotions for each other. In Komi’s case, it is as a result of she has excessive social nervousness. Tadano, in the meantime, would not need to come off as a creep, particularly since he hasn’t purchased into the concept of Komi being in love with him.
In one among Episode 14’s extra important scenes, Tadano eavesdrops on a dialog three of his male classmates — Shigeo Chiarai, Taisei Sonoda, Mono Shinobino — are having in regards to the feminine classmates they’d date. Chiarai shares his fantasies about Najimi Osana and Himiko Agari, Sonoda shares his fantasies about Ren Yamai and Omoharu Nakanaka, and Shinobino shares his fantasies about Nokoko Inaka and Makeru Yadano. In fact, Tadano notes that each one of those fantasies are unrealistic — particularly Sonoda’s about Yamai, whom Tadano is conscious is a yandere.
As he elaborates additional, Tadano footage consuming a meal with Komi at a eating desk and enjoying a recreation of jankenpon (rock, paper, scissors) to find out who’ll wash the dishes. His fantasy ends with each him and Komi doing the dishes collectively, and this thought alone sends him right into a panic.
