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 extremely cute. I love everything about it. Of course, if you're looking for action this is not the place to be and many have called this anime boring. I disagree. 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 characters are really cute and lovable, which is helped by their character design. Oota is like a mother figure to Tanaka, and their interactions form the basis of the show, without giving off the impression that the other characters are unimportant. There's subtle humour in this anime, I feel like it flows easily throughout and there's no overused/exended jokes to get bored of. However there was nothing that really made me cry laughing, so I don't think the comedy is what has attracted me to Tanaka-kun. More than anything, I think this anime makes me happy because of the characters and the pretty animations, as well as the soothing atmosphere - helped by the music, which is always fitting with the mood. Overall I would definitely recommend this to slice of life lovers, or people who'd enjoy a happy and relaxing anime, but it is not for everyone. So, if you're looking for something that is super thrilling with lots of fan service; you've probably come to the wrong place.
If you are looking for something to send you softly pleasantly to sleep then... I have seen only the first episode. While it was not bad, there was nothing there the draw me into watching the second episode, so I left it. It is quite a nice softly pleasant slightly humorous show.A lethargic protagonist surrounded by lax friendly easy going people with no apparent story in sight is far too much listless for me. But if that is what you want then add two stars on to my review.
If you're looking for a plot heavy show this is not your best bet but it is honestly a great anime. The characters are loveable and unique and they play off eachother very well. It's very funny and a lot of scenes just genuinely bring me joy. It's not over hyped comedy or gags but just funny situations with Tanaka's character. The way they present the story and the sounds of the anime makes it very relaxing to watch though it might make some tired even if it's an entertaining scene. This anime is really not for everyone but if you appreciate some chill slice of life or just some plot less comedy then this is for you.
