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.

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.

This story is the usual rom-com anime. I don't remember how I ended up watching this anime, I just did. And I am happy that I did. I usually love romance and this one is one of my new favorite romances.

~Contains some spoilers~

Some reasons I didn't like this anime:
It ended as a cliffhanger and left me with a lot of unanswered questions. I was really surprised that it was that short with a cliffhanger ending. It really is in need of a second season. Though, no second season has been announced it really needs one. I also didn't like that Haru beats up so much read more

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.
