In Aharen-san wa Hakarenai, it seems that Aharen is a quiet student who appears to ignore everyone. Raido, her seatmate, thought he hated her after trying to pull off a conversation with no response at all. Can Aharen speak? Is she mute? Or does she have social anxiety like Komi from Komi Can’t Communicate?
Aharen-san wa Hakarenai is about Aharen and Raido, first-year high school students who are seated beside each other.
Raido struggles to make friends and tries to talk to her but completely ignores him, or so he thought.
In one instance, he discovered that she’s not ignoring him. He just couldn’t hear her.
Can Aharen Speak in Aharen-san wa Hakarenai?
It was established in episode one that Aharen can speak, but she whispers all the time. She is indeed indecipherable unless Raido moves closer to her.
He discovered that she was shunned by her classmates because she was timid, awkward, and clingy, He then decided to befriend her and help her come out of her shell.
Since then, Aharen has been following him and clearly forgets personal space.
The series will follow their journey with tons of comedic scenes to entertain viewers.
Why Can’t People Hear Aharen Talk?
The reason people can’t hear her or find her words indecipherable is because of her soft voice. It seems like she whispers whenever she talks due to the trauma that she has, which was revealed in episode one through a flashback.
Also, her classmates have been avoiding her because of her personality which kind of explains why she doesn’t like to speak much.
With Raido by her side, there might be a chance for her to overcome it eventually.
Aharen-san wa Hakarenai is an interesting slice of life series set in school. The anime mainly focuses on these two and their relationship.
There might be hints of romance along the way but as far as the anime goes, viewers are enjoying the comedic scenes between the two.
The series can be streamed on Crunchyroll for those who are interested to know more about these too and to find out how Aharen got her trauma.
