With the anime adaptation of the Boku-tachi wa Benkyō ga Dekinai manga by Taishi Tsutsui underway as We Never Learn, Viz Media is taking advantage of that to drive people to the manga itself. They’ve got a couple of volumes out with more coming but have put the first two up for sale digitally where they’re half the print price, which makes it easy to sample while not worrying about storage. The sale runs through April 15th, 2019 here.
Check out our review of the first volume of the manga.
Yoshiaki Iwasaki is directing the anime 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 Japanese cast 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, and 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.
