Anime Review: Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun



Mizutani Shizuku is the type of person who only cares for her own grades. But when she accidentally delivers lesson notes to Yoshida Haru, he becomes convinced they are friends.

Haru turns out to have a very innocent personality, but who would’ve thought that Haru would actually confess to Shizuku?

A cold-hearted girl and super-troublemaker romance with a fresh new perspective. (Source: MU)

First of all, this anime needs a second season… Very bad! I like how different the story is from all the other shoujo anime I’ve watched. All the characters are weird in their own way. I like how Shizuku is cold hearted and nerdy, and how Haru is is dense and friendly. They fit together perfectly. Their love story is so cute. I love how the show talks about all the characters not just Haru and Shizuku. The anime was also very funny. The only bad thing about the anime was the ending… Even though I usually like these type of endings. I think it needs a second season.

Overall Rate: 7/10
