2014 anime about boy who creates his own distractions at his school desk

North American anime licensing company Sentai Filmworks announced on Friday that it acquired the Tonari no Seki-kun: The Master of Killing Time television anime. The series will be available "on select digital outlets with a home video release to follow."

Takuma Morishige's original Tonari no Seki-kun (My Neighbor Seki) manga revolves around a girl named Rumi Yokoi who sits next to a boy 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.

The manga inspired the 2014 anime series with Yuji Mutoh directing at Shin-Ei Animation and Kana Hanazawa and Hiro Shimono heading the voice cast. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan.

Vertical is publishing the manga in North America.
