Tanaka-kun is Always Listless

Tanaka is a high school boy who sighs (with a hand on his chin), dozes and sleeps just about anytime and anywhere: in classroom, in PE classes, and even after school hours he is too lazy to move. In contrast, his friend Ohta and other classmates around him are quite energetic, despite of their numerous failed attempts to “wake” Tanaka up. (Synopsis from Anime News Network)

Tanaka-kun is Always Listless is an anime adaptation of a slice-of-life comedy web manga, written and illustrated by Nozomi Uda, which is being serialized by Square Enix in Gangan Online since April 2014. The manga currently has seven (7) volumes.

The anime adaptation was directed by Shinya Kawatsura, who also directed the Non Non Biyori anime series, while Kyou Kara Maoh scriptwriter Akemi Omode handled the series composition. Haruko Itsuka, who worked on Little Busters! anime series, handled character designs, which was produced by SILVER LINK.

The anime series premiered in Japanese television on April 2016.
