Komi-san's new friends
comes from a previous episode in which there was no new member in the friends list comicin Komi-san cannot communicate 2 – Chapter 5 added some. Starting with the snowball fight for elementary school children. Although I would have liked a bigger presentation from the start, I liked that they did it by showing the relationships between them.
How they finally became friends comic I don't have much to say. It was natural. Not only thanks to the personality of each of the children, but unlike the characters shown so far, they didn't see divinity comic at the beginning. So there was no pressure or nervousness in that regard. Although of course that changed after seeing them in action. This time with a little "help" from yamai.
About now inaka. to the friends list of komi-san He missed 87 in the beginning, including the cat chocolate Missing would be 86. After that, I don't recall adding another name to the list, so inaka It should now be on the list with only 81 missing names. That's why I would have liked to see that comic to give the list inaka sign up for it, especially since he didn't have time this time Tadano next to her for support. Even if this was not in the original source, the manga.
But, as with children, the friendship between inaka Y comic Somehow it came naturally to me. be equal inaka the one who approached comic to help her when she needed it. Aside from her own fear of being recognized as a countryman and realizing that some facets of comic they are not what they seem. At least acknowledge that comic She was upset because many other characters would have believed otherwise. With the little time that has passed inaka Next comicI think I would win a duel"What is Komi-san thinking?"a Nakanaka Y yamai.
Personally, I liked the way it looked much better, by the way comic dressed in miko than with the kimono. Both were pretty good options.
entering the environment
Something I appreciate Komi-san cannot communicate 2 - Chapter 5 is that there was more than one moment where they managed for me to create an environment where I could feel more "alive". More specifically, there were two such moments: the snowman mini-arc and the snowball fight while putting michi.
I liked the first one for the fact that they kept a moment with almost no vocal involvement from the characters and let the soundtrack and sound effects follow the events. This is something I haven't found much to like after watching some scenes from "Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san" and his own "joshikausei“. In addition, this style perfectly suits the anime with Komi, of course, on rare occasions. For example, this mini-arc seems perfectly understandable to me, even if the few words on the screen weren't subtitled. The characters' reactions and body language were more than enough.
As for the second, I found it odd and funny that they gave it such a dramatic touch at the point of elimination michi. The soundtrack certainly underlines this fact, but the atmosphere seemed to have been hit well in its own way. I found it with more emphasis on drama without losing the touch that they are in an anime comedy.
I like the way they have progressed Komi-san cannot communicate 2 in technical aspects, be it animation or music. I hope, of course, that they continue in the same quality or even "improve" them. Also, I'm a little excited for the next chapter because if they don't skip it there should be at least a good mini arc to come.
