Is it ironic that we’re learning about a show called We Never Learn?
On December 22, fans of all things Shonen Jump flocked to the Makuhari Messe Convention Center for Jump Festa ’19. During a stage show at the event, the We Never Learn anime staff showed off a new teaser trailer and visual, and confirmed a pair of cast members.
We break the details down below.
The three-minute teaser introduces the main plot concept, with series lead Ryota Ohsaka narrating, as character dialogue cuts in to preview the major performances.
A short version of the promo was also revealed, though the video is region locked to Japan.
The new image features the main characters, posing against a smattering of mathematical and geographic diagrams.
The series will add the following:
- Mafuyu Kirisu: Lynn

Yoshiaki Masaaki (Hayate the Combat Butler!!, Love Hina) will direct the series at Studio Silver and Arvo Animation, with Masakatsu Sasaki (Seiyu’s Life!, A-Channel) providing character designs. Go Zappa (Blend S, Beatless) is in charge of series composition.
