posted on by Karen Ressler
The official twitter account for the upcoming anime adaptation of Takuma Morishige's Tonari no Seki-kun comedy manga reported on Friday that the series will premiere in January. In addition, the tweet revealed that a big announcement regarding the series will appear in the October issue of Media Factory's Comic Flapper magazine, which will ship on September 5.
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 Comic Flapper in 2010. The manga was nominated in the 5th Manga Taisho Awards last year. A set of live-action commercials were aired in Japanese bookstores and trains in 2011.
