What happens when you take a Ice cold robotic-like emotionless bitch and a quick angerd Ninja like reflexes hyperactive child mindset guy you get this shit of a anime. Tonari no Kaibusu-Kun( The Monster seated Next to me) Follow the Lives of Shizuku Mizutani (Mitty) and Haru Yoshida (Haru) and their Cluster fuck of a romantic relationship. This anime is based of the Shoujo manga of the same name. I usally don’t Like shoujo Anime or manga unless it is good, has interesting plot, or is a Yuri other than that i really don’t bother with the typical high-school drama bullshit slice of life cluster fuck they try to pass off as a shoujo anime/manga nowadays but, I tried to give some a chance like i did this one. now their are a few funny moments and it is a good show if you are into shoujo anime my only and huge problem with this anime is the relationship with Haru and Mizutani!! First she doesn’t like him but he love her in a “sexual way”,then she like him but he doesn’t because he is scared of loosing her, then she hates him because her grades are suffering and decide he is becoming a “distraction” from her studies, then fuck haru decided that he fucking love her again and tries to convice her to love him. Their relationship is fucking overly complicated when it need not be. then you get the people who are thrown in there to add drama (I.E mysterious bro Yuuzan, Probably glasses stealing boyfriend Ooshima, and Probably blond hair no sense of direction stealing girlfriend Kenji) The rest of the characters are Blah and bland and are there to add comic relief.
In all honesty the story.. there is no real story. It just about those two and the cluster fuck of their relationship
There is little to no character development even with the indivual side character no growth.
The art in the anime is good No doubt. Haru, Mizutani, and the other were drawn very well but it mean nothing when the story is lacking
It not bad but it not good it has it flaws. The dialog is just as normal as your typical high school romance anime can get. The back and forth indecisiveness on both their part makes me not like it fully but if you like people like that then this is your anime.
*but like all good thing that come from book the manga is better
