Adaptation based on manga by Arata Aki hits Japanese TV and Crunchyroll in Winter of 2020
Just when you thought it was safe to study, a new key visual (below) has been published for A Destructive God Sits Next to Me (known in Japan as Boku no Tonari ni Ankoku Hakaishin ga Imasu.), an upcoming Crunchyroll Co-Production TV anime based on the manga by Arata Aki about an ordinary boy who is trying to keep his grades up despite being constantly distracted by his extremely chuni classmates.
The original A Destructive God Sits Next to Me manga is serialized in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Gene shojo manga magazine. Crunchyroll describes the story of the series as follows:
High school student Koyuki Seri has a disposition for whipping out witty retorts... but hates people who wait for those retorts! Much to his dismay, he had caught the eye of Hanatori Kabuto, who suffers from a terrible case of delusions of grandeur and everything about him could warrant a retort. Seri swears that he will never utter a retort about Kabuto, but he just can't hold back. Not to mention, there seem to be even more strange people gathering around him... A high school boys' comedy that'll make you laugh and laugh (but can also be cute at times) is about to start!
The A Destructive God Sits Next to Me TV anime is directed by Atsushi Nigorikawa and features animation production by EMT Squared. The series will broadcast in Japan beginning in the Winter of 2020, and it will also stream on Crunchyroll in territories worldwide (except Asia).
