posted on by Egan Loo
Issue 1 of Right Stuf's 2015 Anime Catalog lists the My Little Monster (Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun) television anime in an English-subtitled DVD/Blu-ray Combo release for this spring. According to the catalog, the Complete Series Premium Edition will ship in a collectible box with a premium art book for US$59.49 from NIS America.
The catalog describes the story:
Nicknamed "Dry Ice," Shizuku is seen as emotionless and cold by her classmates. When she's tasked with delivering class printouts, she runs into Haru, who immediately decides that they're friends. Shizuku is touched by his innocence and his lack of knowledge towards human relationships. Though known as a violent and uncontrollable monster, Haru also has a kind and gentle side. He immediately declares his love for Shizuku, but it takes much longer for her to realize and accept her own feelings towards him. Together, the two previously unsocial beings help each other learn how to care for others and make friends.
The My Little Monster anime adapts Robico's shōjo manga of the same name. The anime premiered on Japanese television in October 2012, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. Kodansha Comics USA published the original manga's sixth volume in North America on January 20.
