Tanaka-kun is Always Listless

Adapted from the popular web manga series published by Square Enix, this unconventional, surrealist comedy follows an exhausted high school boy who, despite multiple attempts from his friends, still manages to spectacularly… sleep. Much to the chagrin of the energetic (at times bossy) Ohta, Tanaka is often found in a blissful state of lethargy, possessing the ability to doze off in any situation, especially in mid-sentence!

This anime is about Tanaka, and Tanaka is listless so what you expect? Watching his efforts to get through everyday tasks with minimal effort is very entertaining to me, and if you like that sort of thing, this show is for you. The... read more
