SENTAI FILMWORKS CHEERS “Tanaka-kun is Always Listless”

Tanaka-kun Is Always Listless 001 - 20160330

HOUSTON, MARCH 29, 2016Sentai Filmworks is proud to announce its acquisition of Tanaka-kun is Always Listless.

Adapted from the popular web manga series published by Square Enix, this unconventional, surrealist comedy follows an exhausted high school boy who, despite multiple attempts from his friends, still manages to spectacularly… sleep. Much to the chagrin of the energetic (at times bossy) Ohta, Tanaka is often found in a blissful state of lethargy, possessing the ability to doze off in any situation, especially in mid-sentence!

The series was directed by Shinya Kawatsura (Kokoro Connect, Non Non Biyori), with series composition by Akemi Omode (Get Backers, Tales of the Abyss) and character design by Haruko Iizuka (Inu x Boku Secret Service, School-Live!). Animation production was handled by SILVER LINK., the same studio responsible for WATAMOTE and Chivalry of a Failed Knight.

Tanaka-kun is Always Listless is scheduled for an April 2016 broadcast in Japan. It will soon be available for simulcast through select digital outlets, with a home video release to follow.
