Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun Afterword

Ash back with another Afterword. It’s been awhile since I’ve posted one of these, but I feel that this little gem of a series deserves this kind of recognition. Spring Break has ended for me and I return to classes tomorrow. There’s about 8 more weeks to go and then I’m out and done. The feeling is still pretty tense, but I’ve found a bit more joy in my life in the past six months. Between meeting a few new friends and interacting with older ones, I’ve begun to understand more and more about the wonders of life. I’m tryin to be optimistic here, but as a student on the verge of leaving that area of comfort, what can I say?

I’m not too sure about how this blog is going to go about in the next few months. I had originally started this as a “whatever” blog and now it seems most of what we post is anime. That isn’t necessarily a problem, but I want to vary it a bit more.

Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun focuses on the relationship between Shizuku Mizutani, who has absolutely no interests except in studying and her plans for the future, and a boy named Haru Yoshida, who sits next to Shizuku in class but rarely attends school. After Shizuku is tasked with delivering class printouts to Haru’s home, she meets Haru, who immediately greets her as a friend, starting their new relationship.

Yes I know that it’s not over, but I’ve made a decision and decided to review it as of episode Seventeen. I hope my reasons for abandoning the series are clear.

Yūta Togashi is a boy who, during junior high school, had ‘adolescent delusions’ (中二病 chūnibyō?, lit. “junior high school second grade illness”), believing that he possesses supernatural powers and dubbing himself the ‘Dark Flame Master,’ therefore alienating himself from his classmates. Finding his past embarrassing, Yūta attempts to start off high school where he does not know anyone, free from his old delusions. This proves to be difficult, however, as a delusional girl in his class, Rikka Takanashi, learns of Yūta’s past and becomes interested in him.

As the plot progreses Rikka becomes more attached to Yūta, who despite finding her delusions irritating and embarrassing, accepts her. He helps Rikka with a number of things, including founding and maintaining her club and tutoring her. When he joins her on her summer vacation, Yūta learns that when Rikka was very young her father, whom she was very close to, died unexpectedly due to a terminal illness, causing her to fall into her delusions. After Yūta agrees to help Rikka search for the ‘eternal horizon’ (which she believes will lead her to her father) she becomes romantically interested in him and vice versa.
