We Never Learn Anime Reveals Main Cast

posted on by Karen Ressler

The official website for the television anime adaptation of Taishi Tsutsui's We Never Learn (Boku-tachi wa Benkyō ga Dekinai) manga revealed the show's four main cast members on Sunday.

Ryota Ohsaka (Attack on Titan's Marco Bodt, Ace of Diamond's eijun Sawamura) as Nariyuki Yuiga

Haruka Shiraishi (Himouto! Umaruchan's Kirie Motoba, Golden Kamuy's Asirpa) as Fumino Furuhashi

Miyu Tomita (Made in Abyss' Riko, Aikatsu Stars! Yume Nijino) as Rizu Ogata

Sayumi Suzushiro (Hi Score Girl's Akira Ōno, Kōya no Kotobuki Hikōtai's Kirie) as Uruka Takemoto

Yoshiaki Iwasaki (Love Hina, Hayate the Combat Butler, Last Period: the journey to the end of the despair) is directing the anime at Studio Silver and Arvo Animation. Go Zappa (A Bridge to the Starry Skies, Beatless, Myself; Yourself) is in charge of series composition. Masakatsu Sasaki (Saki, Seiyu's Life!, A-Channel) is designing the characters. Additionally, Satoshi Motoyama (WorldEnd, Oreimo) is the sound director at Magic Capsule, and Masato Nakayama (You and Me., My Little Monster) is composing the music.

The manga's story centers on Yuiga, a student who is aiming for a scholarship because he comes from a poor family. His school gives him a condition: he can have a recommendation for a scholarship if he tutors his two beautiful classmates to help them get into the schools of their choice. Ogata may be a science genius and Furuhashi a literature prodigy — but Ogata is aiming for a liberal arts school and Furuhashi is aiming for a science school. And they're both clueless outside their fields of expertise.

Tsutsui launched the manga in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in February 2017, and the eighth compiled book volume shipped on September 4. As of May 2, the series has 1 million copies in print.

Viz Media previewed the first three chapters of the manga for free as part of its "Jump Start" initiative, and added the manga as a regular series for its digital English edition of Weekly Shonen Jump in April 2017.
