One of the best things about ‘Bokutachi wa Benkyou ga Dekinai’ (also known as ‘Bokuben’) is its characters and also the fact that its source material has been running for so long. It also manages to maintain all of its fun elements by releasing consistent content. Many rom-com shows go on a long hiatus right after their first season and that itself creates a negative impact on the flow of their overall stories. With ‘Bokutachi wa Benkyou ga Dekinai’, that is certainly not the case.
Overall, despite being clichéd, what makes this show enjoyable is its sitcom styled shenanigans, decent fanservice and its heartwarming moments. If you really enjoy watching harem rom-com shows that take more of a formulaic approach but are still fun to watch, check this one out. ‘Bokuben’ is now two seasons down , and if you have been following it all this while, you must be wondering if it will return with a season 3. Here’s everything we know.
We Never Learn Bokuben Season 3 Release Date: When will it premiere?
‘We Never Learn Bokuben’ season 1 premiered on April 7, 2019 and with a total of 13 episodes, it ended on June 30, 2019. Despite being quite a generic rom-com, the show did get popular and also managed to get a fairly decent rating on most platforms. But more than the anime, the manga from which it has been adapted, is doing really well. As of February 2019, close to 2 million copies of the manga have been sold and that’s probably one big reason why many anime viewers still want more of this show.
Even its second season, which aired from Oct 6, 2019 to Dec 29, 2019, has received a fairly good response and has been rated higher than its first season. However, despite all of this, a season 3 seems unlikely. The second season of the anime concludes with an ending that is way ahead of the timeline of its source. Moreover, even the creator of the manga, Taishi Tsutsui, has already hinted on his Twitter account that the manga’s end will not be similar to that of the anime. He wrote: “Thank you for watching the last episode of the anime. Thank you very much for making such a wonderful animation with the cooperation of many people. Regarding the relevance between the last episode of the anime and the future development of the original story… No comment (laughs). I hope that the original story will continue to be enjoyed. Thanks!”

Season 3 is only a possibility now if its creators decide to adapt some previously skipped chapters of the manga. As of now, the third season of ‘BokuBen’ has not been greenlit. In the unlikely scenario of the show getting renewed, you can expect ‘We Never Learn Bokuben’ season 3 to release sometime in 2021.

She still has a father who teaches Maths at the university but her relationship with him has not been so great since her mother’s death. This is where Nariyuki comes in and he not only helps her with her studies but also rekindles her relationship with her father. To pay him back for everything that he does for her, she becomes his confidant every time he runs into any sort of girl problems.

To overcome this weakness, she tries her best to learn all about human psychology.

Asumi is a very tiny student who is often mistaken as a middle schooler.
