This review is separated into 2 sections: a spoilers-free review for new readers of the series, and a more critical analysis for those who has read or seen Kakegurui (main story) before, containing minor spoilers. Feel free to scroll down and find the one you're looking for.

After my 3rd time re-watching the series, I've decided to write a spoilers free review. I genuinely do not believe Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun deserve a rating lower than 7.8.

Seeing as you're reading this review, I'd assume you've seen plenty of other 4-6 reviews. Out of disbelieve, I've read through the majority of them, and I consider the majority extremely biased, or downright false.

In case you're wondering why the score on season 3 on this particular website is so low, it's because certain people were upset that Chihayafuru 3 was the HIGHEST rated show of the season, when there are much bigger titles out there. You can easily find proof on weekly records of the ratings.

I've never written a review, I think there are better places for reviews to be, but a score below 7 (6.9 atm, 29/11/19) just goes to show how jealous some people can get. If anything, a score this low reflects more about the website, than it does for the anime.
