FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SENTAI FILMWORKS LICENSES “TONARI NO SEKI-KUN: THE MASTER OF KILLING TIME”
HOUSTON, DECEMBER 17, 2015 – Sentai Filmworks is proud to announce its latest acquisition, Tonari no Seki-kun: The Master of Killing Time. Based on the original work of Takuma Morishige, the series was directed by Yuji Muto, with character design by Masae Otake. Shinji Kawai (STUDIO UNI) acted as Art Director.
During class, a schoolboy named Seki-kun is always creating things to entertain himself. All he cares for is creating things with an artist’s level of perfectionism and a craftsman’s attention to detail. Real dominos, shogi with original rules, a flip book with sounds…
Even Yokoi-san, who sits next to Seki-kun, always gets sucked into watching his games!
Based on the unique original work by Takuma Morishige – Japan’s one-and-only manga about not paying attention in class – this anime is about the silent battles the two have practically all the time. Please look forward to seeing the games Seki-kun breathes life into and seeing Yokoi-san’s reactions!
Tonari no Seki-kun: The Master of Killing Time will be available on select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.
