Tanaka is an average high school boy, with his best friend Ota. But unlike others, Tanaka has made being listless his life goal, going to extreme measures to make sure he can be listless in peace, while Ota is there to carry him around and make sure Tanaka is properly cared for. The anime series explores the everyday yet exciting adventures of Tanaka and Ota, as well as their various classmates as they deal with their own forms of listlessness and enlightenment. It has been a while since a nice, slice-of-life, feel good anime like this has come around. Amidst all of the shows that tug on your heart strings or take you on an emotional roller coaster of excitement, there aren't very many mellow ones that you can just curl up with on a lazy day, or when you're tired late at night and can't sleep. Tanaka-kun is Always Listless is a peaceful anime that is still able to provide the drama that most anime viewers crave. A wonderful series that I would highly recommend. It may not have all of the adventures and romance and suspense, but it really leaves you feeling better about life in general and satisfied.
