  • One of the most funniest anime I've watched
    Tonari no Seki-kun is so funny how Seki hardly, no, NEVER gets in trouble while Yokoi gets in trouble for saying things out loud. At first, this was nothing and scrolled past it, but when I watched it, I laughed my ass off! It's how he makes a simple game of chess into an show! I wonder how nobody ever notices it

  • Tonari no Seki-kun: A fun time
    Tonari n Seki-kun is an episodic anime revolving around what the male lead (Seki-kun) has decided to kill time with, and how the female lead (Rumi) reacts to to it.Now Seki-kun wastes time by playing games with a different twist on them every episode.What Seki-kun is doing is explained through Rumi's perspective and her imagination,as throughout the entire anime Seki-kun never says a word.Yet what ...

  • short and sweet comedy gold
    you remember those long, boring classes in school, right? the ones where the teacher drones on and on and that hour seems to last forever? well, imagine that's you on the left in the title image. because it is certainly how you'll feel when you see what antics Seki gets up to in these slice-of-life comedy shorts.

  • The master of killing time, is a good way to spend time
    I have to say I am getting to rather enjoy short (<10 min) episodes.

    The story is simple enough, but entertaining, Rumi is distracted by Seki's antics for killing time at his desk during class. She tries to pay attention in class but is inevitably drawn to see what Seki is doing. That being said, every episode is unique in it's own way.

    At 7 minutes per episode, you can watch the who ...

  • I'd say, Master of Distraction :D
    Awesome anime, too bad is only seven minutes long; five if you take out the intro and ending songs.
    Is concise and entertaining, every episode is clever, simple and chaotic in their own particular way.
    Seki-kun will do thing that seems on a first glance only for his own pleasure; from there the title. But as the episodes advance you will notice that his work is the art to distract his nearest ...

  • This is an awesome anime
    Simple straight to the point and no complicated plot. For 7 minutes an episode, you cannot beat it. The shogi episodes are definitely my favorite. For people who don't watch anime normally, this is a perfect one to start with. It can get suspenseful and when you least expect it... it was for nothing at all.

  • A pretty good way to kill time
    Just as the title of the series denotes, this series is good for killing time. It's not the MOST exciting show, but then it's not really supposed to be. The episodes are pretty short, which I think works in the show's favor since there is very little dialogue; most of the show is from Yokoi's perspective so it's the only words you really get are her inner monologues of the action. Over all it's a ...

    This guy takes it to a new level!
    There are multiple levels of time slaying-

    #1. Not paying attention.
    #2. Fiddling with your surroundings.
    #3. If you get caught you get detention.
    #4. If you have this much time you should go do something productive.
    #5. If you get caught you they won't even be mad because that is just plain, old impressive!

    In this series you will see all of this, from one man. Seki-kun, the ...

  • It is a good break from your average anime.
    To be honest, I didn't give this anime enough credit when I started watching it. It took me after watching a few episodes to understand it. As the title of my review says, It is a great break from anything serious or long with anime.

    With its short episode times, its good for breaking the ice with boredom. I could go as far as saying if you feel down, this anime will not stop bringing you ...

    Seven minutes to brighten your day
    Of all the micro anime that I have watched to date this is my favorite. Even though it is the same basic idea repeated throughout the shows the comedy had me laughing out loud many times through the series. It was perfect for when I needed a quick pick-me-up after a long day at work.
