No one in this show is normal: Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun


Good evening! My second completed series of the week.

Originated from a manga, 13 volumes in 5 years (2008-2013). The anime lasted for 13 eps with 1 OVA.

Storyline can go out of control sometimes, but thats what makes it very enjoyable and entertaining. Its unique in its way and the comedy just comes pretty naturally. It felt pretty neutral but there are actual fun in watching them. The ending felt really incomplete and the OVA is really pointless. There is no proper conclusion in the series, that might be one of the few flaws in this show. Haru might be one of the most weird male character I have ever seen. Doing things that doesnt make any sense and doing things without thinking, very illogical this dude, I wonder how girls in the show actually likes him… Sigh. All the characters does not have any traits to be the “normal” person in the show, all of them are either damn extreme or just plain.

Animations done by Brain’s Base. Quality is pretty decent for its genre but the Kawaisou quality will be welcomed. Character designs were pretty ok too.

Music is a mixed bag. OP is on and off for me, ED totally no.

VAs are a list of pretty legit people. Tomatsu Haruka, Tanezaki Atsumi, Suzuki Tatsuhisa, Osaka Ryota, Terashima Takuma, Hanazawa Kana, Nakamura Yuichi, Yahagi Sayuri, Koyasu Takehito, Murase Ayumu. But I find the drama CD cast more suitable for some of the roles. Suzumura Kenichi is definitely better than Suzuki Tatsuhisa in voicing Haru. Tatsumi Yuiko can voice quite a legit cute voice for Asako, but Atsumi did a good job too. Hayami Saori maybe can be better than Hanazawa Kana in voicing Chizuru.


Story: 8/10

Art: 8/10

Music: 6/10

VAs: 7/10

Recommended? Idk, its really hard for me to intro to people for this series, it REALLY relies on personal taste.

  1. It sucks when animes don’t have a conclusive ending. I read the first volume of this manga and thought it was pretty average.
