What is Bocchi The Rock about?

Bocchi The Rock is an upcoming slice-of-life comedy anime, an adaptation of Aki Hamaji’s original manga series by Studio CloverWorks (Spy x Family, The Promised Neverland, My Dress-Up Darling).

The series tells the story of Hitori Gotou, a high school student who spends her time trying to learn how to play the guitar.

She hopes that by learning the guitar, she can eventually join a school band and make some friends – something that she has been unable to do so far due to her extreme social anxiety and shyness around classmates.

However, her dreams may actually be coming true when she meets a girl called Nijika Ijichi, an excellent drummer who is looking for a new guitarist to join her band.
