The latest wraparound jacket band for Takuma Morishige's Tonari no Seki comedy manga revealed that an anime has been green-lit. In addition, a website titled “” was registered last month.

The original manga revolves around a girl named Yokoi who sits next to a boy only known as “Seki-kun.” During class, Seki-kun continues to not pay attention and instead creates amazingly throrough little distractions, such as a detailed golf course with the course's hole being a dent in his desk, or an entire dramatic war being played out by paper shogi pieces.

Morishige began his manga in Media Factory's Comic Flapper magazine in 2010. The manga was nominated in the 5th Manga Taisho Awards last year. A set of live-action commercials were aired in Japanese bookstores and trains in 2011.

Here's to hoping it'll actually be a full fledged anime, and not one of those 5 minute short shows. Looking forward to this.
