We Never Learn Manga Gets Anime Series Adaptation

We Never Learn Manga Gets Anime Series AdaptationTaishi Tsutsui’s manga We Never Learn (Bokutachi wa Benkyo ga Dekinai) will be getting the anime treatment, it was revealed today.

The announcement included a visual featuring its main characters.

We Never Learn centers around Nariyuki, a high school student who agrees to tutor two fellow students in exchange for a scholarship. Things get complicated when said students decide to venture far outside the fields of study they’re used to—and budding romance complicates things even further.

The anime adaptation will be directed by Yoshiaki Iwasaki (Love Hina, Hayate the Combat Butler) and feature story composition by Go Zappa (Beatless).

The manga launched in Japan in February of 2017, and digitally by Viz Media in English in April of that year. The publisher is bringing out a physical edition of the manga starting in December 2018.

Here’s how Viz describes volume 1:

When studious Nariyuki tutors two supergeniuses who are total dunces in their favorite subjects, he’ll get a crash course in love!

Nariyuki Yuiga comes from an impoverished family, so he’s eager to secure a full scholarship to college when he graduates high school. His principal agrees, with one stipulation—he must tutor the two smartest girls at the school and make sure they get into their target colleges! Rizu is a science genius who wants to study liberal arts. Fumino is effortlessly good at literature, but math makes her head spin. Nariyuki is stuck between a rock and a hard place, but who can complain about tutoring a couple of cute girls?

Nariyuki is facing the chance of a lifetime if he can just make sure that Fumino and Rizu excel and get into the schools they want to attend. He comes prepared to tutor them, but he isn’t prepared for burgeoning high school romance! Sparks begin to fly, no matter how much Nariyuki tries to avoid it—and things get even more complicated when a third girl joins the study group
