The wraparound jacket band on the sixth volume of Yomi Hirasaka's Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai romantic comedy light novels is announcing this month that a television anime adaptation of the series has been green-lit.
The story revolves around Kodaka Hasegawa, a half-Japanese/half-British transfer student whose delinquent-like blonde hair scares people, and a seemingly perpetually sullen girl named Yozora Mikazuki. The two decide to form Rinjinbu, a club for people with hardly any friends.
Media Factory's MF Bunko J imprint launched the light novels in 2009 with art by Buriki (Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko), and the artist Itachi has been drawing a manga adaptation in Media Factory' Monthly Comic Alive magazine since last year.
Update: Writer Misaki Harukawa and artist Shōichi Taguchi have been serializing another manga, Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai+ in Shueisha's Jump Square magazine since last year. Thanks, TarutoClown93.
Update 2 Media Factory's blog has listed the cast list.
- Kodaka Hasegawa: Ryohei Kimura
- Yozora Mikazuki: Marina Inoue
- Sena Kashiwazaki: Kanae Itō
- Yukimura Kusunoki: Nozomi Yamamoto
