Synopsis

For high school student Tanaka, the act of being listless is a way of life. Known for his inattentiveness and ability to fall asleep anywhere, Tanaka prays that each day will be as uneventful as the last, seeking to preserve his lazy lifestyle however he can by avoiding situations that require him to exert himself. Along with his dependable friend Oota who helps him with tasks he is unable to accomplish, the lethargic teenager constantly deals with events that prevent him from experiencing the quiet and peaceful days he longs for.

Tanaka-kun is Always Listless. A very basic on the surface, but very entertaining anime.
Reminds me a lot of Aharen-san wa Hakarenai (Aharen Is Indecipherable).

Its about a school boy Tanaka. A boy with no enthusiasm, who never gets exited.

Oota; his always serious best friend who always supports him (literally carrying him around).
Oota is the most helpful person in the world. Always willing to go out of his way to help others.

Rino; Tanaka’s little sister who has a crush on her older brother, wants her brother all to herself and wants to keep Oota away.
Coincidentally Rino’s best friend is Oota’s younger sister.
Rino has a similar uninterested ...

The characters were all stereotypical with no intention of trying anything new and the development was minimal. The anime tried to be a comedy-focused one but utterly failed to do so because of forced comedic scenes ...

TIAL is about Tanaka, who is a lazy as fuck student who wants to do nothing but sleep. In ...
