Main cast announced:

Seki-kun: Shimono Hiro
Yokoi-san: Hanazawa Kana

Kind of make me wonder: Does Seki-kun ever say anything in the manga?


Wasn't he called on by the teacher to read something? But I think that only happened once. Maybe background noises or random grunts when he's doing his usual shenanigans qualifies for the need to have a VA haha :)

Also, KanaHana for Yokoi is perfect.

I just found the manga, loving it and what do you know, it's getting an anime.

It is really one of those manga that know what they are and entertain A LOT without needlessly steeping out of their comfort zone. And despite its repetitiveness, it doesn't get boring. We have a fantastic Boke and a great Tsukkomi and they work so perfectly together. A simple fun, but that doesn't make it any less fun. Will be watching.

Not sure if it is low budget or 13 episode, but I wonder how you get the idea that this anime is "female focused" ?


Anyway, for reminiscence reason, I found this old PV for the manga which I find quite interesting:
