Animation studio CloverWorks animates Bocchi the Rock! anime under Keichiro Saito’s instructions based on Aki Hamaji’s 4-koma manga serialized in Hobunsha’s monthly magazine Manga Time Kirara Max. The series is scheduled to release the fifth compiled volume on November 26, 2022.
Crunchyroll is streaming the anime this season and describes the plot as:
Hitori Gotoh, “Bocchi-chan,” is a girl who is so introverted and shy around people that she would always start conversations with “Ah…” During her middle school years, she started playing the guitar, and wanted to join a band because she thought it might be an opportunity for even someone shy like her to also shine. But because she had no friends, she ended up practicing guitar for six hours every day all by herself. After becoming an accomplished guitarist, she uploaded videos of herself playing guitar to the internet under the name “Guitar Hero” and fantasized about performing at the school’s cultural festival concert. But not only was she unable to find any bandmates, before she knew it she was in high school and still couldn’t make a single friend! She was very close to becoming a shut-in, but one day Nijika Ijichi, the drummer of the Kessoku Band, reached out to her. And because of that, her everyday life began to change little by little…
