A page at the end of Takuma Morishige's fourth Tonari no Seki-kun manga volume announced that a special edition of the fifth volume will bundle an anime DVD this coming winter. A recent wraparound jacket band on the light novel volumes already revealed that an anime has been green-lit.
The original manga revolves around a girl named Yokoi who sits next to a boy only known as “Seki-kun.” During class, Seki-kun continues to not pay attention and instead creates amazingly throrough little distractions, such as a detailed golf course with the course's hole being a dent in his desk, or an entire dramatic war being played out by paper shogi pieces.
Morishige began his manga in Media Factory's Comic Flapper magazine in 2010. The manga was nominated in the 5th Manga Taisho Awards last year. A set of live-action commercials ran in Japanese bookstores and trains in 2011.
