We Never Learn

So for a while now I’ve been watching and enjoying “We Never Learn” (or Bokuben, but I find the English title easier to remember). It’s a cute slice of life/romance comedy anime about a guy trying to tutor three girls. It’s one of those shows with a lot of misunderstandings and relationship comedy, but it stands out to me as being particularly good at presenting likable, funny characters who I just enjoy watching. There’s a couple other girls in the show I’m pretty fond of (and the main guy is also cute, if a bit boring compared to the girls), so maybe I’ll do more from this show in the future. At the very least I wanted to do something with these main three. From left-to-right we have Uruka Takemoto, a swimming athlete who needs to improve her grades all around to get into her college of choice and the main guy’s childhood friend with a long-standing crush, Fumino Furuhashi, a literature genius who sucks at math and science but wants to work in astronomy and is super sensitive about her smaller bra size, and Rizu Ogata, a math and science genius who wants to learn liberal arts so she can learn how to better connect with people. They’re all three precious to me in their own ways, and maybe I’ll do more with them in the future. I don’t think this show has gotten too much attention, so I’m expecting these girls to be new to most people, but if y’all like them it’ll help motivate me to return to this franchise more. I really like Uruka’s design and would like to draw her more (possibly with the main boy, possibly with her swimming buddies), and Rizu’s got a science rival with a crush on her I’d like to try pairing with her. There’s also a cute teacher character that could be paired with anyone for some teach taboo fun. Anyway, hope you all like the pic!
