Sentai Filmworks announced the English dub cast for the Tonari no Seki-kun: The Master of Killing Time anime on Wednesday. The cast, under director Brittany Deans, includes:

  • Monica Rial as Rumi Yokoi
  • Blake Shepard as Toshinari Seki
  • Andrew Love as Adachi

  • Corey Hartzog as Uzawa
  • Jad Saxton as Tomako
  • Caitlynn French as Sakura
  • Carolyn Medrano as Naka
  • David Wald as Narrator

Sentai Filmworks will release the full series of shorts on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on April 12 for US$39.98 and US$49.98, respectively.

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.
