Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun Shōjo Anime's TV Ad Aired

posted on by Egan Loo
Robico's romantic comedy starring Haruka Tomatsu, Tatsuhisa Suzuki to debut on Monday

A television commercial for the Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun (The Monster Seated Next to You) shōjo anime began airing in Japan. The ad features the opening theme song "Q&A Recital!" by lead voice actress Haruka Tomatsu.

The anime adapts Robico's romantic comedy manga about Shizuku Mizutani, a girl (played by Tomatsu) who has absolutely no interests except for school and her plans for the future. A boy named Haru Yoshida (Tatsuhisa Suzuki) 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.

The anime will premiere on Monday with the ending theme song "White Wishes" by the female group 9nine. Robico launched the manga in 2008, and Kodansha published the 10th compiled book volume last month.
