This unconventional, surrealist comedy follows an exhausted high school boy who, despite multiple attempts from his friends, still manages to spectacularly... sleep. Much to the chagrin of the energetic (at times bossy) Oota, Tanaka is often found in a blissful state of lethargy, possessing the ability to doze off in any situation, especially in mid-sentence!

Relaxing and "fluffy" for lack of a better word, but ultimately not massively memorable. The characters were charming and I liked the softer art style but it's probably not something I'll remember for long. Still, an enjoyable distraction and relaxing while it lasts.

This show postiviley surprised me with a lovely cast and for the lack of a better word "comfy" mood. The titular lazy main character really allows for a unique laid back comedy. Kudos to Silver LInk.

theres only 3 episodes out but this already reminds me so much of gekkan shoujo nozaki kun! the humor or the art isnt as good but its the same style and it makes me happy because ive been looking for something with a similar humor!
