Tanaka-kun is Always Listless : He seriously needs a help!

Tanaka kun is Always Listless

Konnichiwa! I am Mishi! How are you, everyone? Today I want to talk about a new anime for 2016. The name of this  anime is Tanaka-kun is Always Listless (田中くんはいつもけだるげ/Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge). It is a very very relaxing anime that will put you to sleep. Zzz(=ω=*) Let’s take a look at this anime’s story before I fall asleep! ⊂⌒っ´∀`)っ




Tanaka is the main character who is a high school student. He doesn’t have an active life even though he is a teenager. His life is all about being listless. He doesn’t want to do anything but sleep. Whatever he does, he will get tired and try to fall asleep. Even when he eats too much food, that makes him sleepy. He is barely able to live his life by his own.

As he is who he is, he has a friend to look after him. His name is Ohta who is a classmate in his class. When Tanaka falls asleep everywhere, he carries him back to their class. Basically, that is his job. That is why Tanaka can act the way he does.

The story is for Tanaka who makes an effort, not to make an effort, and the people who are around him. Let’s see how people will react to him and be affected by him!

My review


Tanaka-kun is Always Listless Recommendation Chart

This anime is so so slow and very very quiet! Sometimes you feel like time has stopped. ヽ(゚□゚\*≡*/゚□゚)ノYou might want to check the calendar real quick lol.

There are many scenes that will make you laugh, but those won’t hit you hard to laugh. It will make you laugh quietly. This anime is like you will really like it or definitely you won’t like it. It will split your opinion into pro or con. Fortunately, I like anime like this so I enjoy watching until I fall asleep like him! (o_ _)o.。oOO

If I describe Tanaka as an animal, He would be a sloth. You get your eyes off of him and next moment he is sleeping or being lazy. This guy doesn’t want to do anything! He also doesn’t want people to pay attention to him so he can study and get good grades, but on purpose he tries to get average scores! What is his problem? Lol, I need to know his daily life from waking up to going to bed. I am so interested in his life but on the other hand, I am worried about his life, even though I am not his mother! (´。` ) =3 I am so glad that he found a good friend to take care of him!

It is really up to you to like this anime or not. If you like this anime, I am glad that I introduced you to this, but if you don’t like it, sorry for that! I will say sorry instead of Tanaka lol. (I can hear that Ohta says sorry too lol.)

Watch this anime and let me know! Let’s end this post now because I am too sleepy from explaining lol! See you soon~! Zz(´-ω-`*)φ
