Thankfully, fellow student Nijika Ijichi is a drummer in desperate need of a guitarist. The two meet and the pair of friends do their best to get their band dreams off the ground, despite Gotou’s timidity.
The series began in 2017 by creator Aki Hamaji. Bocchi the Rock! is Hamaji’s first solo project, having only been published before in several anthology manga alongside other creators.
At the time of publishing, an English premiere has not been announced and at the time not even the manga is licensed in North America.
