The official website for the television anime of Taishi Tsutsui's We Never Learn (Boku-tachi wa Benkyō ga Dekinai) manga began streaming a new promotional video for the anime on Saturday. The site also revealed a new visual for the anime. (Note: The video on the website is region-locked to Japan. A region version is embedded below.)
Previously revealed cast members include:
Ryota Ohsaka (Attack on Titan's Marco Bodt, Ace of Diamond's Eijun Sawamura) as Nariyuki Yuiga
Haruka Shiraishi (Himouto! Umaru-chan'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
Madoka Asahina as Asumi Kominami
Lynn as Mafuyu Kirisu
The series will premiere on April 6. The show will air on Tokyo MX, Gunma TV, Tochigi TV, BS11, and AT-X on April 6 at 24:30 (effectively April 7 at 12:30 a.m.), before airing later that night on MBS and on April 9 on TV Aichi.
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 10th compiled book volume shipped on February 4. As of last May, 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.
