Tanaka-kun is always listless ep 10


It’s summer time for Tanaka and Ohta which means it’s time for the swimming episode. Tanaka and Ohta are by the pool about to go in when Tanaka decides that this is the perfect time to tell Ohta that he can’t swim ( ha better late then never).  He has his trusty inner tube with him so he tells Ohta not to worry. When he has the idea of using Ohta as a float he quickly gets shut down XD.


After attempting to stretch and failing Tanaka decides it’s time to get into the water. Once in the water some little kids start harassing Tanaka about using an inner tube at his age. They decide to take his float from him even though they know that he can’t swim (not cool at all). Ohta shows up just in time to save the day, and tells off the bad little kids. Seriously don’t steal a float, especially from someone who can’t swim attempted murder much. Continue reading

Tanaka-kun is always listless ep.9


The episode starts of with Tanaka and Ohta standing in front of a Wc Donalds (McDonalds in case it wasn’t obvious). Ohta really wants to try their new limited edition strawberry sundae, however Tanaka doesn’t like the fast food restaurant atmosphere and is worried he’ll feel to much pressure. All that changes though when he sees that you get a mini toy cleaner with a happy meal, I understand that temptation very well.

Sensing how giving Tanaka a milk shake to carry could go wrong, the female cashier decides to bring the drink to his table instead. That’s a really nice Mc Donalds, mine isn’t bring you anything.

Hey all I’m back after a short hiatus. I’ll explain more about that in another post, any who onto Tanaka-kun. In this episode Tanaka has to survive school without the help of Ohta, sounds impossible right that’s because it kind of is lol. Ohta is absent from class and Tanaka is given the task of bringing a worksheet to his house. When he leaves the classroom and see’s Echizen, he asks her  to do it instead since she lives next door to him. Which is not a bad idea but still he’s his friend, I was happy when she headbutted him after that. Seriously he carries you to school everyday and back home, you can at least bring him his worksheet haha. Continue reading
