posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The We Never Learn (Boku-tachi wa Benkyō ga Dekinai) romantic comedy manga is getting an anime adaptation by Love Hina director Yoshiaki Iwasaki and no one is more excited than its creator Taishi Tsutsui.
Tsutsui shared his happiness on Twitter on Monday with a live-drawing video. He draws a quick inked sketch of the manga's heroines Ogata and Furuhashi.
今週のジャンプで告知されていましたが、なんと「ぼくたちは勉強ができない」をテレビアニメ化していただくことになりましたー!— 筒井 大志@ぼく勉8巻9/4発売! (@Taishi_Tsutsui) August 27, 2018
Yoshiaki Iwasaki (Love Hina, Hayate the Combat Butler!!, Last Period: the journey to the end of the despair) is directing the anime at Studio Silver and Arvo Animation. Go Zappa (A Bridge to the Starry Skies, Beatless, Myself; Yourself) is in charge of series composition. Masakatsu Sasaki (Saki, Seiyu's Life, A-Channel) is designing the characters
Tsutsui launched the manga in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in February 2017, and the seventh compiled book volume shipped on July 4. The eighth volume will ship on September 4. As of May 2, the series has 1 million copies in print.
The manga's story centers on Yuiga, a student who is aiming for a scholarship because he comes from a poor family. His school gives him a condition: he can have a recommendation for a scholarship if he tutors his two beautiful classmates to help them get into the schools of their choice. Ogata may be a science genius and Furuhashi a literature prodigy — but Ogata is aiming for a liberal arts school and Furuhashi is aiming for a science school. And they're both clueless outside their fields of expertise.
Viz Media previewed the first three chapters of the manga for free as part of its "Jump Start" initiative, and added the manga as a regular series for its digital English edition of Weekly Shonen Jump in April 2017.
