Synopsis

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.

Smooched
It is a shame that rom-coms today are completely infested with harems, where an ordinary guy pimps multiple beautifully-pixelated girls. Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun, my friends, is how a romantic comedy should strive to be. First of all, there are two key elements that make up for a successful romantic comedy: romance and comedy. I don’t consider romance to be: “I love you because you are the main character of this story, and there is no particular reason why.” I also don’t consider comedy to be constant sexual innuendos and sexual harassment. It is not funny, not to mention overdone.

Satire
Too many times have I seen the redundant case in anime where a show will conclude at what feels like the midpoint of the series. Although providing quality artwork, animation, and satiating my thirst for lighthearted romantic-comedy, Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun (My Little Monster) falls victim under this unfortunate plague.

The plot of My Little Monster resides mainly in the perspective of the two main characters, Shizuku and Haru; both are social outcasts and have no friends at the beginning of the series due to their own respective personalities not meeting the standards of the social norm. They are both very weird characters, but maybe that's read more

Recommendations

Both are shoujo anime, feature a love build up between characters and lots of comedy in between.
They are both romantic comedy series with funny peculiar characters.
