Tonari no Seki-kun's New Promo Videos Promote January Debut
posted on by Egan Loo
The story revolves around a girl named Yokoi who sits next to a boy known only as “Seki-kun.” During class, Seki-kun completely ignores everything around him 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 (Japanese chess) pieces.
The "Blackboard" video has schoolgirl Gotō writing:
Tonari no Seki-kun
Anime Adaptation Green-Lit!!
Premieres January 2014
Via TV & Streaming!
The second "Robot Family" video once again follows the denizens of Seki-kun's table, as seen in popular installments of the manga:
Robot Son: I wanna see the anime Tonari no Seki-kun!
Robot Papa: Isn't it a late-night show?
Robot Son: I won't be able to see it…
Robot Mama: We robots don't sleep, right?
Robot Son: That's right!
The rest of the characters include:
Yuji Mutoh (Crayon Shin-chan films, Green Green) is directing the series at Shinei Animation (The Knight in the Area, Doraemon films). Masae Ōtake (Kuromajyo-san ga Tōru!!) is designing the characters.
The television anime will premiere in January, and the fifth volume of the manga will bundle an anime DVD on January 4.
