Recap of Komi Can’t Communicate Season 2 Episode 4

Komi is bored at home as she tries to figure out what she should do on Christmas Eve as she hasn’t prepared anything yet. That’s when Komi gets a call from Najimi, who tells her that everyone is coming to her house for a Christmas party and that she should buy gifts for them as soon as possible. Komi panics when she realizes they will arrive in a few hours and seeks assistance from her brother Shousuke.

He reluctantly drives her to the nearest shopping mall, but he is uninterested in assisting her in selecting gifts for her pals. As he prepares to go, Komi insists on waiting a little longer and agrees to limit the present possibilities to just three. Shousuke is unimpressed when he discovers that Komi has chosen ornamental candles, a flower arrangement with a reindeer motif, and a dancing Santa figure. Fortunately, after a long search, she eventually finds the perfect present, but she then tries to hand over her purse to Shousuke so that he can pay and she can avoid talking to a stranger.

Meanwhile, Tadano, Najimi, and Komi’s classmates are hunting for a gift for the birthday girl. Najimi turns the process of selecting a present into an enjoyable game. Everyone has a budget of up to 5,000 yen, and the winner will be the person whose gift most excites Komi. With that out of the way, everyone starts looking for the perfect present for the titular protagonist. While some of them are at a loss for ideas, Yamai declares that she will gift herself to Komi. Onemine chooses pickled plums, whereas Yadano believes that whey protein is the perfect present.

As they begin to communicate their opinions, it becomes evident that they do not agree with one another. Tadano, on the other hand, purchases a large stuffed black cat toy for 8,000 yen. He proposes that instead of selecting gifts independently, they should give Komi with the stuffed toy as a group, which will also be less expensive for them individually. Everyone seemed to like the concept, and they eventually purchase the stuffed animal. Komi’s pals arrive at her house in the evening and surprise her with the gift.

When they get to the house, everyone starts playing a hilarious mind game to figure out where Komi would finally sit so they can be with her. She, on the other hand, decides to sit with Tadano. To spice things up, they start playing the King Game, in which participants are handed numbered sticks and one of them becomes the king, who can order anyone to do whatever at random. When Najimi has the opportunity, she dresses Komi up like Santa Claus. While this isn’t difficult when Komi’s mother also joins and becomes king, she insists on Tadano kissing Shinobino on the cheek.

Season 2 Episode 4 Ending: Does Komi Like the Birthday Surprise?

When Komi’s pals arrive at her house and surprise her with the large gift, she merely clutches on to the plush toy and doesn’t say anything. While some of them think that she did not like the gift, this was not an unusual reaction by the titular heroine, who suffers from a communication impairment. Komi, on the other hand, does not even try to thank them for the gift, even when they spend time with her at her residence. Later, when they say their goodbyes and return home, Tadano and his classmates begin to suspect that she didn’t like the gift and that there would be no more worries about it.

A weird disappointment washes over them quickly, but the silence is soon broken by the noise of cellphone notifications. Komi has sent them all a text message in which she expresses her heartfelt gratitude and thanks them for sharing her birthday with Christmas. She even stresses that people should not evaluate her feelings about the present based on her initial reaction, an allusion to her social shyness and inability to express herself correctly.
