Welcome to the We Never Learn discussion thread where you can talk about the plot, characters and episodes overall.
We Never Learn Alias: Bokutachi wa Benkyou ga Dekinai, BokuBen, We Can't Study Studio: Arvo Animation, Silver Adaptation: Taishi Tsutsui's manga Genres: Comedy, School, Harem, Romance Episodes: 13 Release Date: April 7th, 2019 Streaming: Crunchyroll, FunimationNow, Hulu
Plot: His late father always said that a useless man should strive to be useful, so to that end, third-year high school student Nariyuki Yuiga dedicated himself to becoming a high-achieving student in his school, despite his history of poor grades. In order to give his destitute family a better life, his ultimate goal is to obtain the special VIP nomination, a prestigious scholarship covering all future university tuition fees. Although Nariyuki could feasibly be a shoe-in for the nomination, he is constantly overshadowed by classmates Rizu Ogata and Fumino Furuhashi in mathematics and literature, respectively.
To his delight, Nariyuki receives the nomination, but there's a catch: he has to tutor his two star classmates, who are each hopelessly mediocre at the other’s subject of expertise! To make matters worse, the subjects they are horrible at are the same subjects they want to pursue for their future. As the time to submit university applications draws nearer, Nariyuki must find an effective tutoring method for the girls before it's too late.
You know it is a love angle/triangle when there are two. When it is three or more, it is a harem.
Tutor anime - similar to Quintessential Quintuplets except we have 3 non blood related girls, two of them excel in one field buy fail everything else. The sport girl fails at everything and schools accept well rounded athletes. She is not part of the principal's task for the tutor.
Ep 3 - 2nd half has the cliche of making the tomboy feminine enough as her classmates help her woo the protagonist
1st half crams math girl with udon and literature girl who was sick. Both passed their midterms
I love the princess carry contest
A roughly balanced episode in terms of showcasing the girls
I think we continue and finish off the visit at the teacher's place only to run into glasses girl who was delivering noodles.
Because the protagonist's mother was sick, he volunteer to work at the lingerie store called "Jelly" something. He was in the mall mascot outfit and had to do some risque things until the blue haired girl saw him unmasked once the store manager arrive back from taking care of her sick daughter
This episode was full of harem cliches and fateful encounters but it was still good nonetheless. Didn't feel cheesy or old. I had fun.
Asumi Kominami is the new character introduced. She's the shortest one (like that scene where the 3 main girls meet her and glasses girl was comparing her height) and the senpai
I am confused with this show's characters. I thought it was 3 main love interests
The teacher had an episode with fan service. I dismissed it as the teacher wasn't really the love interest. When Asumi shows up, she reminded me of the teacher with harem antics as well. She even got him to pretend they are in a relationship in front of the doctor father.
It would be fair to say the anime is no longer equal on the three main girls in terms of representation. The blue haired girl was the wing woman. She was helping the swimmer girl and the protagonist fixed misunderstandings.
It was full of cliches like texting right behind them in the park. Yet, it still felt natural. This harem show is just a happy show. Not too ecchi. That would please people who can't tolerate ecchi.
Fumino Furuhashi gets the final spotlight (the two didn't get the last train and was forced to pretend to be brother and sister and share one bed in the same room and somehow holding each other) as everyone else appeared with minor scenes and fan service of the harem cliche which doesn't feel tiring for some reason during the festival
Old Man Dream: For the Pixar films from the poll I did up to yesterday, I'll be watching A Bug's Life first.

Taka: I'll be back later tonight. Hopefully, my internet will get better and stay stable. It's randomly disconnecting.

Old Man Dream: Something I hate doing when I had initially promised, but having second thoughts on the Pixar movie viewing I promised. Four months going through the retrospective has me itching to want to dabble back into older anime titles again.
Jan 12, 2021 1:28:38 GMT
Old Man Dream: Yeah, sorry guys. But I'm reneging on this. Been immersed enough in Disney the past four months and want to get back deep into things with anime. Maybe down the line, I'll do a Pixar retrospective if I have enough a case of anime burnout. But back to anime

Taka: Ok, my involvement with the Index Collab has finally concluded. Thank you and hopefully, we get more new members joining the site.

Taka: I was going to work on the simulcast guide. Getting internet problems again.

Taka: I'm not sure when to do the seasonal derby for Winter 2021 since Netflix or other companies might pop up a new anime.

Old Man Dream: Guess even with Weathering with You, Shinkai's still dabbling into his typical storytelling involving long-distance relationships, at least when it comes to Hina and Hodaka's circumstances. Only about an hour into the film thus far.
Jan 16, 2021 15:40:36 GMT
Old Man Dream: Hmmmmm.... And can't believe I'm saying this with my indifference for both: Your Name > Weathering With You.
Jan 16, 2021 18:32:40 GMT
Old Man Dream: Done with the film. Think there's enough with this where I can put a review together. Expect something up sometime later today.
Jan 16, 2021 19:19:02 GMT
Taka: Planning to watch Weathering with You. I don't remember if I watched all of the older Shinkai films. There is a shift from the sad romance to happier romance if I'm not mistaken.

Taka: Watching the Maleficent live action movie.
