About

Origin

Bocchi first appeared in "chapter 0" of the manga series. In the chapter, she's in middle school and wants to find a place where a gloomy, loner person can be famous. Watching TV one day, she learns about a rock band in which one of the members used to be gloomy before becoming popular. She then tries to play the electric guitar with her father (shown below, left and right).
