The latest update also revealed a new cast addition and the opening and ending theme artists. Shinichiro Kamio (Kuro Kiryu in Ensemble Stars!, Rio Mason Busujima in Hypnosis Mic: Division Rap Battle) is joining the anime as the voice of Makoto Katai, pictured below.
The opening theme song for season 2 is “Ao 100 Iro” by Miku Ito, and the ending theme is “Koshaberi Biyori” by FantasticYouth.
Netflix streams the anime, and VIZ Media publishes the original manga in English. Here’s the synopsis:
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!]
