Hey everyone it that time of year when seasons change and so does anime. The anime I will discussing today is going to be “My Little Monster” or “Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun” in japanese. This anime really seems to take strides and a new form of romantic comedy in the anime genre, circumventing the typical formula of animes and generalization. First off the anime starts with what most animes build up to end on, the inevitable fact that the main characters fall in love with one another and confess they’re love for each other, that’s right that is how this anime starts.
Next is that the characters are very goofy(more so than typical anime characters for at least the main characters), almost like the love story the comic relief characters. These typical goofy characters never convey much feeling in animes. So, yes, it is safe to say this anime is out of the ordinary without breaking the rules of reality with human looking aliens, other-worlds, or hands turning into a tiny naked girl.
This anime is based of a manga which can be a good thing or a bad thing, meaning they have source material and won’t really have to write much but can stifle creative minds which makes for deviation from the source upsetting any cult followings already existent. Though rarely the case it has happened and can happen again. I for one will be watching this anime progress and really look forward to its success.
