The official website of the television anime adaptation of Yuuki Yaku and Fly's Jaku-Chara Tomozaki-kun (Bottom-tier Character Tomozaki) light novel revealed on Wednesday additional staff members and the first key visual (pictured). The anime series is scheduled to premiere in January 2021.

This looks fucking awful

Ew. One of those Jump dramas. An older one too, which somehow apparently lasted nearly two decades and was trying to give Ah! My Goddess a run for its money on which would be progressing the slowest. Dude is a blank slate. Girl is manic pixie girl. Other dude is… also the same as the first. Other girl is… well, we've already seen the whole rainbow of personality types, assuming a rainbow is just shades of grey, so I guess she'll be the same as the guys. And here we are, for a drama with no drama, characters having a relationship with no relationships, and a story with no plot.


Wew, what a lot of buzz words and wild guessing but none of it is true! Actually the opposite of your description will fit this series better but of course you can always pretend you know everything just by looking at its synopsis at first glance. You really wanted to sound like a smart person here, but I think you're just going to make a fool of yourself. Cheers!

Ngl, I do like the art design. Not to mention the staff team is fine, Netoge and Ryuuou artstyle was good. Now I haven't read the LN of this series so Idk what to expect.

ah Horrible Character Art. that's clearly the first sign of an awful adaptation in making.

Finally! My most awaited School Rom-Com! Fans of My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU (OreGairu), you have to watch this.

Not a harem. The MC only likes one girl and by volume 7 of LN they start dating.
I don't know why mods tagged it as a harem, maybe @DatRandomDude can help telling the mod to remove the tag?

The original design is beautiful, nothing like this.

The anime staff is not really good. Project no 9 always have those ugly color design, this is what I dreaded the most. Shinsuke Yanagi has directed some anime, but he's not really that good and they're just bland. The character designer, Yano Akane is not really good too, I know she's being perceived by Japanese public as a "young and beautiful" animator, featured her in some tv show, etc... but in reality she isn't even a good animator to begin with. Her preference to loli design and overly moe style also doesn't help, look at Netoge, Ryuuou no Oshigoto, ChoYoyu... that's kind of design she made. On top of that, Tomozaki has the shortest production cycle. Since Netoge no Yome, Shinsuke Yanagi and Yano Akane's team have always produced anime within 1 year 9 months cycle, Netoge (Spring 2016) -> Ryuuou (Winter 2018) -> ChoYoyu (Fall 2019), if we're following this cycle Tomozaki should be out in Summer 2021. On top of that there's corona effect that made the team had to do their work from home too... so production wise, this bound to be a disaster.

Now my only hope is the guy who writes series composition, Fumihiko Shimo, doesn't rush the adaptation and just end it at volume 3.

I was expecting the animation to be close to Fly's illustrations
Here's another series which has a high chance of not getting a good adaptation
