The anime series is currently streaming on Crunchyroll and it describes the synopsis as:

Hitori Gotoh, “Bocchi-chan,” is a girl who’s so introverted and shy around people that she’d always start her conversations with “Ah…”

After becoming a skilled guitar player, she uploaded videos of herself playing the guitar to the internet under the name “Guitar Hero” and fantasized about performing at her school’s cultural festival concert. But not only could she not find any bandmates, before she knew it, she was in high school and still wasn’t able to make a single friend!

She was really close to becoming a shut-in, but one day, Nijika Ijichi, the drummer in Kessoku Band, reached out to her. And because of that, her everyday life started to change little by little…

Bocchi the Rock! and its protagonist Hitori Gotoh are also currently ranked fourth on Anime Trending’s Top Fall 2022 Anime Charts and Female Characters Charts respectively. Vote them into the Top Anime rankings HERE
