    A Little Over 7 Minutes of Excellence
    The show may only have two central characters and 7 minutes (give or take) to draw you in but it does so with little effort. The humor and characters just naturally come appealing. Aside from Rumi's narration and disapproval to Seki's antics it mostly revolves around Seki's activities at his desk.

    It is actually great pacing and timing in which the comedy comes at you. It doesn't need to be ...

    Perfect For All Ages
    "The Master Of Killing Time" truly lives up to it's name. The animation is subtle, the comedy is golden, and there isn't a hint of any anime cliche's whatsoever.

    It reminds me a lot of the American Show "Phineas and Ferb", about two guys who do and build the craziest things over summer vacation, yet never get caught; not even by their sister who watches everything happen. So yeah, you could say ...

    Watching Seki kill his time is the perfect way to kill mine.
    So like, were you ever sitting in class trying to focus while a friend was sitting next to you goofing off and it was seriously keeping you from focusing? Well, that’s basically what this show is about. It follows a boy (Seki) and a girl (Yokoi). Yokoi is always trying to focus in class when Seki does something horribly distracting and Yokoi, as hard as she trys not to, basically finds herself ...

    So Cute, short and sweet
    IT is a super cute anime, but it won't leave you sitting there wanting to through up, even though his little extraction's are extravagant, they are only toped by her reactions to them. it is short to keep your interest yet long enough to convey the story.

    SIMPLICITY works well!!
    I shall continue watching this because of its simplicity and taste in comedy. Very unique in a way because I never would've imagined an anime literally being about a dude that DOESN'T EVEN talk, use his time in a hilarious manner. Rumi the female character really does shine since her mono/dialogue is what provides the show its comedic feel. I will definitely continue watching :DD

    ~~~Stay Toasty ...

    A Thoroughly Enjoyable Comedy
    This anime is thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish. The story follows a girl named Rumi and her classmate, Seki, as she tries to not get involved in his shenanigans.

    Right off the bat, the story sounds very old and overdone, but this anime is able to present it in a very fresh light. Each episode is only 7 minutes long, and each one follows one of Seki's antics.

    Both of the characters ...

    Tonari no seki-kun, master of killing my time
    Tonari no seki-kun the master of killing time, is a show about a boy who sits in class and wastes his time, and the person who sits next to him wasting her time watching him waste his time, and i waste even more time watching her waste her time watching him waste his time. This show is funny, and even teaches you things, and is extremely good and is short and sweet.

    Killing time..................................................................
    I love this anime because it's so fun and.....helps you kill time. It's really uplifting and great because it's not that time consuming! I am always waiting for another episode (too bad it's ending soon for non premium members like me...)! (づ。◕‿‿◕。)づ

    Highly enjoyable 7 minutes well spent!
    I like this series a lot.

    Very simple.

    You are led down a road of curiosity by the chick who is cannot believe her eyes at what the kid next to her is doing during class. In doing so, she adds story to each element and uses her own imagination as if she becomes part of the curiousity.

    Specifically there is a robot family also... with their own theme song.

    It is purely imagination ...

    Best way to kill your time (when you need it)
    I looked up Tonari no Seki-kun as a passing recommendation from a friend & have fallen in love with the series.

    For those who are current in school (or have moved beyond that), you can totally relate to this series as you may have, at one time or another, done something in class just to kill time instead of studying. Seki here kicks it up a notch to the ridiculous (& potentially ludicrous) ...
