This was just as entertaining as the first book, I laughed so much, it was hilarious. There were more characters and I loved all of them. The plot just gets better and better and I can't wait to see what's going to happen next. I'm interested to see what roles the characters will play in the next volumes. And I can't wait to catch up to the part I was in the anime.

I'm always just waiting. Waiting for someone to reach out to me. But at the same time, I'm really self-conscious and a coward.

I'm having some difficulty getting into this manga, though I'm not entirely sure why; I believe one reason is the wishy-washy feelings of the protagonists - a more accurate way to describe this would be that they themselves come off as wishy-washy, particularly Shizuku. Still, I did enjoy this volume. There was a smidgen of information revealed about both Shizuku and Haru's pasts, and I'm especially curious as to the latter's - I'm also hoping his relationship with his brother is built upon m

Still cute, still funny and slowly building up the characters for more :)
Haru is so ODD!
i really like him but there's something that makes me not LOVE him. Difference to Shizuku who I love already, she is not as blank and clichè as she could have been (I think I already pointed that out but it is bc I'm really happy about it) I mean she didn't ignore her feelings (what I thought she was going to do) and she went for it, and when things didn't go as she wanted she kept her cool. Kudos to you gi

First of all, can someone explain what exactly Haru's brother wanted from him? Did he want Haru to come with him to their father or not? Does he want him to dropout of school and go to his father?

Anyway, I'm just confused at the part otherwise, the story is OK. Still, I can't wrap my mind with this series.

There is a love rival for the protagonist and Haru seems to not understand his feelings towards Shizuthani.

Also, I feel like its Sawako and Kazehaya-kun all over again in a slightly different

Series rating 5.0 starss!

I read this series on a whim while waiting for Ao Haru Ride updates.
I never expected to love this one so much!! I love the illustrations of the mangaka and the plot of the story too. It's filled with cutesy scenes and such (though not all of it).

The story starts with a misunderstanding on Haru-kun's side, as he thinks that Shizuku is a friend of his. The guy is pretty dense on just about everything though, so that explains it. From this encounter then starts a rollercoa

My Little Monster continues with Haru avoiding his brother. There's a great amount of animosity he projects concerning his brother. He even lashes out because of his issues with his brother. With this volume we learn more about Haru's past, a connection with one of his friends, and a little understanding of why Mizutani cares only for her grades. I'm sympathizing with these characters now which is really wonderful because I really wanted this second volume of the series to be excellent which it ...more

No segundo volume de ‘Tonari Kabutsu-kun’ a gente vê os laços mais profundos que eles vão criando entre si.

Na verdade, mesmo nesse ‘lenga-lenga’ da gente não saber se eles se gostam o bastante ou não, a amizade deles vai evoluindo demais.
Shizuku, como sempre, esta preocupada demais em suas notas, mas diferente de antes, começa a se envolver mais no mundo a sua volta. Ela que sempre esteve sozinha na biblioteca, agora é acompanhada (e atrapalhada) por seus novos colegas.

Tem as férias de verão

Series review! 5/5!

I've gotten fed up with tsundere characters so I went out to test/read more of this other subtype known as kuudere (google: kuu "cool" + dere "lovestruck"; literally: cold and emotionless characters that slowly show their feelings). A quick google search of top rated/favorited ones included this (and Akuma to Love Song, which I stopped reading a loooong way back and must re-read again soon) so I did.

And I am pleased. Very pleased. One of the reasons why I stopped reading shou

I want to love this series. And I am enjoying it. But it just doesn’t have me super excited for it.

It’s cute, there’s some good humor in this. Maybe I’m just not attached to the characters enough. And I don’t really love any of them. Mizutani isn’t bad, and I do like seeing her grow and figure out her feelings. I don’t mind Haru, either, although I think I thought I would find him more adorable or something. There are other minor characters, and I li

I love this series, and I'm only two books into it. Can't wait to read the next volume. Haru and Shizuku make quite the pair. I love Haru's reactions to things. I wish there was more of a interaction between him and his brother. I have a feeling this won't be the last we see of Yuzan, but it was kind of a let down when all he had to say was that he just wanted Haru to stay in school. I thought maybe there would be something deeper and bigger. I still have a feeling that there is something, and ...more

Akhirnya nomor 2 keluar! Yah, sudah dari minggu lalu sih tanggal rilisnya. Cuma baru lihat komik ini tadi.

"Gap" antar panel yang saya rasakan di jilid 1 sudah tidak terasa lagi di sini. Terjemahannya bagus dan saya suka terjemahan pas Ooshima "marah" ke Haru.

Btw, kovernya ini sesuatu yah. Apa yang ada di pikiran orang-orang yang gak ngeh cerita komik ini saat melihat kovernya yah? (view spoiler)

Kinda dragged in the middle, but still really enjoyed it!
I don't really like the other girl right now, she felt a bit flat for me. I'm guessing she'll be around for the rest of the series so we'll see if my opinion about her change later on. Also, I'm so intrigued with Haru's brother. I'm so hoping to see more of him!

Anyway, that was such a cliffhanger in the end!!! Whaaat, is Shizuku giving up?!?!?! Noooo!!!

oshima is a delight

i thought i was indifferent but no. her outburst at haru and mizutani's complete failure to communicate showed me the light. i am so happy natsume adopted her because it gives me scenes with multiple favs, it's gr8

also haru's brother showed up which is a thing i guess. w/e, call me when you have learned to be amazing like oshima. truth bombs for everyone!

Aún voy por los volúmenes que tuvieron la oportunidad de ser adaptados en el anime y me gustan tanto o incluso más que allí. Esta historia de verdad me gusta mucho y no sé muy bien porque, ya que es una típica historia romántica.

Básicamente, lo que más me gusta es el matiz cómico de la misma y que aprendí a amar estos personajes, aunque en este volumen es que aparece como tal Ooshima y de verdad que a ella no la soporto; quizás más adelante en el manga me caiga mejor, pero por ahora no.

Continuing from Vol. 1, this story picks up from where the girl now thinks she likes the guys, and the guy thinks he just wants to be friends. I still gave it 4 stars, but if things continue to develop as they have been future volumes won't be rated so highly. The character development is just weird. Why did she suddenly like the guy? Why did he suddenly not like her? Makes very little sense.

kyaaa. There are so many scenes that shows Haru's cute expression, and Shizuku's too. This volume is so sweet I've melted all the way when read this. Can Haru realize his true feeling soon? I can't wait only for 1 day to tow reading the next volume!

I liked the second volume very much. The characters are given a bit more depth and the plot picks up nicely as well. I believe this volume sets a very good path for what is to come in the following volumes. The comedy is just as cute without being overly done and the fluff is just perfect as well.

Un second tome aussi bon que le premier :) ! J'aime assez leurs jeu suis moi je te fuis, fuis moi je te suis. De plus le mystère s'épaissit autour de la famille de notre héros.
Affaire à suivre. Aout me semble déjà trop loin!

I liked this one a bit better than the first volume. The story is moving a bit, there are new characters, motivations are a little less creepy and more understandable.
