Tanaka-kun is always listless, and probably in need of medical attention (and I don't mean dental work).

Episode 1 nearly put me to sleep, but it did have some fun moments.

I'm curious to see if/how they bring in other characters to make this more interesting--and I have to trust they'll do something more with this because right now the premise seems better suited to a series of shorts rather than full-length episodes. If it's all pretty much the same joke, well, I'd rather be lying outside under a tree listening to birds chirp.

Ep 1

I liked this more than I expected. Tanaka is the opposite of Sakamoto, but despite his listlessness I actually found this funnier. I'm not sure how the jokes will continue, but for now I loved the pace of the humor. It felt like the comedic timing was far better than most shows. I want to see what effect the other characters will have on the silliness of the premise. So far I like the cast, and Ohta is the greatest friend ever. I'll be sticking around for sure.



Being lazy is hard work.

The cast in the OP look interesting, but the routines between Tanaka and Ohta just feel flat to me. Neither has enough energy to make the interactions amusing.

With the first half devoted to rapid-fire lazy jokes, I just couldn't keep enough interest to keep watching. Seems to be riding heavily on the bishounen factor, with the only other thing propping it up is the deadpan comedy. I can see where this might be a hit form some people, but to me the jokes are awful.

I actually enjoyed this a fair amount. A few good laugh out loud moments. In contrast, I couldn't make it through the entire episode of Sakamoto. All those jokes fell flat. It was interesting to watch them one right after the other to see the difference in humor. I do wonder where they are going to go with this for an entire season though.

Cute so far. Reminds me of how I would like to be at times. Not to the same degree though.

...but when the girls moved and he got that breeze he needed...from desk to floor.

Episode 2

So much for praying for an uneventful day as Miyano wants to be Tanaka's apprentice in listlessness. That Miyano sure is hyperactive and so intent on being just as listless as Tanaka, but being listless just isn't her style. Anyway, that was cute seeing Miyano always switching modes between being hyperactive and being listless, and it can happen in a snap like when she almost walked through yellow tape. Now, Tanaka has been issued a challenge. At least this episode was eventful with Miyano barging onto the scene like that, but still I'm feeling listless watching this show. I'll give it one more episode at least.

Episode 2

Funny episode but I don't like the voice of that Miyano girl much.

The entire thing was basically about apprenticeship lol and wow, I almost thought she would change entirely for a bit until the final few minutes.

Tanaka has a very energetic apprentice in Miyano. I like her character. She's very cute.



She tries to be listless like Tanaka but it's just not her style. She comes to school looking very listless and Tanaka & Ohta are curious how she got that way since it's such a huge change from the way she was. Worrying about the mascots made her more listless than Tanaka and she didn't even know it. Very fun episode. Looks like Tanaka is being challenged next episode.

I honestly don't know how you guys can call this boring, I was laughing through the whole thing. Miyano's voice was perfect for the character: obnoxious, abnormaly enthusiastic and a little grating.

To each their own I guess...

I had actually started to wonder if there were schools that big in real life, Looks like it'd be easy to get lost a few times.

Tanaka-kun is Always Listless Ep 2 / Apprenticeship Application

That was much better I get the Dry ( Momotone ) Humor Like Steven Wright

Steven Alexander Wright (born December 6, 1955) is an American comedian, actor, writer, and an Oscar-winning film producer. He is known for his distinctly lethargic voice and slow, deadpan delivery of ironic, philosophical and sometimes nonsensical jokes, paraprosdokians, non sequiturs, anti-humor, and one-liners with contrived situations.

Miyano a relative of Aoi Yamada ( Working) Their haircuts are similiar XD / even their expressions

^^ Yeah right the schools inside looks like a mall

I actually really like this show as its easy going and a break from all of the other more serious anime. Ive developed a soft spot for these kind of slice of life shows. This show, flying witch, and Kuma Miko all seem to have a similar feel as there is light humor, pastel colors, and just feels relaxing to watch
