A wraparound jacket found on the fourth volume revealed that manga Sakamoto desu ga? (Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto) will be receiving a TV anime adaptation scheduled to air in Spring 2016 on TBS and BS-TBS.

First year high school student Sakamoto isn't just cool, he's the coolest! Almost immediately after starting school, he began attracting everyone's attention. The girls love him, and most of the boys resent him. There's even a boy in the class who works as a model, but who is constantly upstaged by Sakamoto! No matter what tricks the other boys try to play on him, Sakamoto always manages to foil them with ease and grace. Though Sakamoto may seem cool and aloof, he helps others when asked, such as in the case of the boy in his class who was being constantly bullied. No matter what difficulties Sakamoto encounters, he moves through his high school life with confidence and class! (Source: MangaHelpers)

The series is drawn by Nami Sano and ran for four volumes from August 2011 to December 2015 in Kadokawa's harta magazine. It also won the Comic Natalie Grand Prize in 2013.

Nice,now I can start reading this.

Ain't going to expect much from the anime,feel the comedy is more suited for manga and it'll be easier to fuck up in the anime.

(30 characters limit blah blah)

Why the hell are you even watching anime anymore, you seem to be displeased by anything that isn't Monogatari. Just shut the fuck up, your posts are irritating and I'm sure I'm not the only one you're irritating.

Didn't think they'd have enough material to fill 20 min episodes, but I'm glad to be proven wrong.
Will definitely watch this. :)
I hope Sakamoto will be voiced by Ono D.

Hope this gets a good comedy staff. Also feel like this would suit being a short or half-length episodes. Feel like this should go to Sunrise/Bandai Namco Pictures or J.C. Staff. Wonder who will be the VA of Sakamoto.

I have not read this,but it looks cool :)

What I like is that they are adapting a finished manga. The anime industry definitely needs to consider adapting good 4-5 volume long mangas/novels into 12 eps series, rather than trying to do unfinished and rushed adaptations. (I know that they need to do a few cheap advertises to earn their money,but I think with the right marketing they could also make a bunch of money from good finished manga series.)

I'm not surprised at this, Japanese fans wanted this to be an anime for a while.

Oh wow it got finished, we may get the whole thing adapted then.

All hail Sakamoto! My goodness, this is a good surprise.
Hoping for a great animation studio (Madhouse pls.), I hope they don't make it a short anime, 24 minute episodes please. I also hope they cast Yuichi Nakamura or Mamoru Miyano for Swagamoto, as they are the only seiyuu I see fit to voice him.

I can already picture the episodes where he goes to school, he will always battle his PE Teacher before the opening sequence happens.

An already finished manga get's an adaptation, yet anime that a lot of people want a season 2 for don't get one because it's source material is finished. (though I'm sure more more reasons than just that)
Although, if your an optimist, you can see this as proof that a series, even if finished can still get an anime, or a season 2.

Oh and I am looking forward to this anime lol.
