Crunchyroll to Simulcast "Tanaka-kun is Always Listless" Anime

Series premieres on Saturday, April 9 at 7:00am Pacific Time

Crunchyroll's latest spring 2016 anime announcement is Tanaka-kun is Always Listless. The anime adaptation of Nozomi Uda's comedy manga is set to premiere this Saturday, April 9 at 7:00am Pacific Time. 


Tanaka-kun is Always Listless will be available to Crunchyroll members in the following territories: USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Scandinavia, the Netherlands, Turkey, and Latin America.




Based off of the manga Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge by Nozomi Uda, the anime adaptation is being produced by SILVER LINK, the same studio behind Non Non Biyori and WATAMOTE ~No Matter How I Look at It, It’s You Guys Fault I’m Not Popular!~. Shinya Kawatsura, who also worked on Non Non Biyori, will be directing the series as well. 


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!
