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.

Synopsis
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.

guys, give this anime a try. this is seriously one of the funniest manga i'd ever read.
on a side note, it'd be great if Angel Densetsu can be adapted into an anime... It's comedy is pure gold!!!

Currently reading the manga. It's not the most funniest thing out there (Gintama and Nichijou are better imo), but it's pretty damn funny at times. Sakamoto is a god, lol!

It is. Gintama is hit or miss. Sakamoto is hit or hit.


In your unpopular opinion ofc.


I don't know about Gintama being a hit or miss or Sakamoto being hit or hit, but note that while the best a volume of Gintama made in 1 year was selling 590k copies, Sakamoto was 890k copies. 300k more.

So is not hard to believe it isn't an unpopular opinion. Or at least just the part that Sakamoto is amazing and an hit or hit.

I suppose not all hope is gone for the industry.

Sakamoto was rated higher than Gintama's manga before lmao


haha, you want to imply that ratings count? Fine, then I'll play that game.

gintama's manga was ranked in the top 50, before a dumb mod merged it with all of sorachi's one-shots. which explains the 8.26 rating and the 5,512 users who somehow finished it despite the publishing status, either way it's still rated higher than swagamoto lol.
