Viz Media is releasing the manga in English, and it describes the story:
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!
Oda launched the manga in Weekly Shonen Sunday in May 2016, after first publishing a one-shot version of the manga in September 2015. Shogakukan published the manga's 23rd compiled book volume on October 18. Viz Media published the manga's 16th volume on August 14.
The manga also inspired a live-action series that premiered on September 6 on NHK General's "Yorudora" late-night drama block
