Robico's Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun Shōjo Manga Gets Anime

posted on by Egan Loo
Romantic comedy about school-obsessed girl & a "friend" she makes by chance

The July issue of Kodansha's Dessert magazine is announcing on Thursday that an anime adaptation of Robico's Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun (The Monster Seated Next to You) shōjo manga has been green-lit. (The illustration of the manga is on the righthand side of the pictured magazine cover.)

The romantic comedy centers around Shizuku Mizutani, a girl who has absolutely no interests except for school and her plans for the future. A boy named Yoshida would be seated next to her in class, but he has been constantly absent for one reason or another since the first day of school. By chance, she is sent to deliver class printouts to him, and that leads Yoshida to believe they are friends.

Robico launched the manga in 2008, and Kodansha published the ninth compiled book volume this past March. Dessert is also announcing that Kanae Hazuki's Suki-tte Ii na yo. (Say "I love you".) manga is getting an anime.
