Synopsis

The boy who sits next to Yokoi in class, Seki-kun, is always up to something at his desk. He manages to somehow play very elaborate games without attracting the teacher's attention. From dominos, to shogi, to go, to mecha models, to playing with cats and more, he always has something new to do. Yokoi often finds herself getting reluctantly interested in his games, even though they always seem to end up getting HER in trouble with the teacher!

Tonari no Seki-kun is about a girl trying to be diligent and pay attention in class but she keeps being distracted by the guy sitting next to her. He never talks to her, or says anything over the entire course of the manga. She gets distracted by the weird and wonderful games and distractions he cooks up during class. These include things like modelling a miniature driving school complete with handmade driving license for when he finishes. Or dramatic re-enactment of historical betrayals and wars through the use of shogi pieces. Try as she can to continue paying attention in class, she can’t help but read more

Have you ever got bored on a class? Probably yes. And you probably have tried to do everything but listen the class, setting your own games with what you have in hands. That’s how Seki, the main character, passes his days on school. To minigolf with cracks on the table to a war game with pieces of chess. But what if someone on the class notice what are you doing and try to go along? And so you have Yokoi, the classmate which is the only one that noticed Seki and his games, and do some sort of narration for them, which are also the read more

im new to making reviews so forgive me if i make mistakes ^.^

this is like one of those slice of life where it doesnt really have a plot but its funny and interesting so i'll read it anyway

its about a strange guy who does not listen in class..he is like in a world of his own..creating things and everything right on his desk..some nearly imposiible..and he always gets away with it..

then there's this girl seated beside him who for some reason the only one who notices him..and somehow gets caught up in seki kun's plot and hobbies and the one always caught by the teacher

Ok I randomly found this manga at my local B.A.M when going to the mall (yes when I go to the mall I always go to the bookstore for books instead of clothes-sue me)
Anyways I find this manga to be very cute and hilarious. It defiantly exceeded my expectations of when I was just reading the back. This is some type of Phenius and Ferb stuff. Instead of the Candace trying to bust her brothers it's the main charter Rumi. Who is just trying to pay attention in but instead is distracted by Seki.
That's the basic formula and you think it would be bad or read more
