Bocchi the Rock Anime Scheduled for 2022

Bocchi the Rock

The anime adaptation of Bocchi the Rock has been announced for sometime in 2022.

Originally announced earlier this year, Bocchi the Rock! is a slice-of-life comedy series that follows high school student Hitori Gotou. Gotou dreams of being a guitarist, but her overwhelming shyness and anxiety makes it hard to make friends, let alone join a band.

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.
