My Little Monster
1 January 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Protagonist Shizuku Mizutani is a hard working student who dedicates her time to her studies; then one day she meets Haru Yoshida, a student who is in her class but rarely bothers to attend school. Haru has a reputation for being rather scary as he is always getting into scrapes; he isn't a bad person though and they soon develops feelings for each other even though neither want to admit it. Over the course of the series they struggle with their feelings for each other and Haru gets jealous when another boy takes an interest in Shizuku even though she tells him that she has no feeling for him.

This may be a shojo anime but that doesn't mean you have to be a girl to enjoy it; the characters are fun, especially Haru who is constantly providing a laugh with his behaviour. In her own way Shizuku is fun too as she is almost the opposite of Haru. There might not be much of an ongoing plot but that doesn't matter as the characters day to day lives are entertaining and realistic enough to be believable without being boring. The animation is distinctive and looks pretty good. Overall I'd say this series is worth watching; especially as it can currently be watched legally online on Crunchyroll.

These comments are based on watching the series in Japanese with English subtitles.
