Tanaka-kun is Always Listless




I have been a fan of this manga for a while, so I’m happy that it now has an anime. The main character Tanaka-kun goes to extreme lengths to be listless and lazy. He has his best friend Ohta is kind of his caregiver, he makes sure that Tanaka gets to class on time and even drags him to the dentist if he has too. This is a slice of life anime with no plot, however you do get to enjoy Tanaka’s weird personality and Ohta’s dotting father figure throughout the anime.


This anime is based on a manga of the same name, that currently has 6 volumes out in Japan. This anime is one of my favourites this season.

The anime follows Tanaka-kun and Ohta. Tanaka goes to extreme lengths to be as lazy as possible, and he is relatively useless as a human being. His best friend Ohta, is essentially his caregiver. He bring Tanaka where he was to be, makes sure he stays awake in class and even makes sure that he eats. Throughout the anime, we get to see what hyjinx these two boys get into with their group of friends, as well as who develops feelings for the boys.

The anime is very silly, and a little over the top, but I love it. if you like slice of life animes, you’ll love this show!
