Nariyuki Yuiga, an impoverished third-year high school student, works tirelessly to receive the VIP nomination, a scholarship that would cover all of his college tuition fees. In recognition of his hard work, the headmaster awards him the renowned scholarship.

However, this scholarship is given under one condition: he must tutor the school's geniuses in their weakest subjects! Joining his new brigade of pupils are the math maestro Rizu Ogata, who wants to study humanities; the literature legend Fumino Furuhashi, who wants to study science; and Yuiga's sports-savvy childhood friend, Uruka Takemoto, who is hopeless at everything else.

Bokutachi wa Benkyou ga Dekinai follows Yuiga as he tries to teach his three eccentric tutees in a series of strange and comedic antics. But as Ogata's and Furuhashi's ambitions conflict with their talents, will Yuiga be able to help his students achieve their dreams?

Well, they've made it impossible for me not to watch the second season.

Oh well.

We Never Learn: BOKUBEN has a pretty normal plot, akin to that of the Quintessential Quintuplets.

However, while the Quintessential Quintuplets focused more on family bonds, We Never Learn: BOKUBEN went more into the delightfully absurd and nonsensical end of the harem anime spectrum. I'm not telling you what it is, but it certainly made the anime a tiny bit more interesting. Also, its ...

Very fun, well animated and with captivating protagonists, this is a somewhat controversial anime due to its creativity in avoiding an objective conclusion and also due to its difficulty in pleasing the majority of the public; I believe that when working with a harem — or something close to the concept — it is natural that everyone has their preferences and an objective conclusion can create a rupture with part of the public. Having said all that, for those who are interested in comedy (having a good laugh), twists ...

It is the typical series with a good premise but quite badly presented, it is pure and clear love where you are not going to look much into the protagonists or what they think, there are going to be many scenes that will become a bit uncomfortable for some people and others are going to like it a lot because it will involve a lot of misunderstandings between the girls and our protagonist, which is what this whole season is based on and I think the whole series, there are many better options than watching this series and several are superior in many Aspects, if ...
