We learned during the summer of 2018 that the Boku-tachi wa Benkyō ga Dekinai manga by Taishi Tsutsui was getting an anime adaptation as We Never Learn. With it recently set for an April 6th, 2019 debut, Aniplex USA has revealed that they’re bringing the show out on that date to three services with Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Hulu lined up for it. Yoshiaki Iwasaki is directing it based on the series composition by Go Zappa. Masakatsu Sasaki is handling the character designs with Studio Silver and Arvo Animation handling the animation production.
The previously announced cast now includes:
- Ryota Ohsaka as Nariyuki Yuiga
- Haruka Shiraishi as Fumino Furuhashi
- Miyu Tomita as Rizu Ogata
- Sayumi Suzushiro as Uruka Takemoto
- Madoka Asahina as Asumi Kominami
- Lynn as Mafuyu Kirisu
The Weekly Shonen Jump title, which got a Jump Start preview as We Never Learn through Viz Media, began in February 2017 and has seven volumes out so far with new volumes landing roughly every two months. Popular properties from the magazine generally generate a good bit of content quickly for a single-cour and can boost the sales of both the magazine with people jumping on for more as well as the compiled volumes.
Plot Concept: The series follows 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.
