The series will be directed by Yuji Mutoh (Crayon Shin-chan films, Green Green). Masae Ōtake (Kuromajyo-san ga Tōru!!) is handling character design and Shinei Animation (The Knight in the Area, Doraemon films) is producing the animation.
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.
