Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun episode 08

Another good episode, as is to be expected of Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun. Truthfully, there wasn’t as much progress between Shizuku and Haru as I had expected. I’m starting to get a little bit worried, because I don’t want the end to be another kiss between these two characters. I want more. I don’t want to waste more episodes to see something I’ve already seen during the first episode.

The episode started out pretty good. Everyone was busy with the school fair and Shizuku and Haru were both in charge of the haunted house. Perfect opportunity for Haru; a boy and a girl alone together in the dark. Anything could happen. But, sadly enough, my hope to see anything happen between them soon got flushed when the fearsome foursome, Haru’s ‘friends’, showed up to ruin everything.

Kenji, that blonde know-it-all, continued to interfere with their progress. He kept clinging to Shizuku, which ended up making Haru mad, which ended up in Shizuku accidently getting punched by Haru when he tried to hit Kenji. Seriously, what kind setup is that? Haru has it hard enough without people messing up his life any further.

Also, Haru’s brother, Yuuzan, is seriously starting to piss me off. He keeps messing things up. Why doesn’t he just go back home? He already achieved his mission, to make Haru stay in school and away from home. His excuse for that was because those two would kill each other, yet he keeps interfering with his life like that…

Still, I have a lot of hope left! Shizuku clearly still loves Haru as much as before, but she just doesn’t want to fall deeply in love like that again, because she fears that her grades will suffer once more. Shizuku, now also known as “study bug”, always puts her education before anything else. That is why she’s my favourite. She knows how to prioritize. It won’t be long now before Haru tears threw the wall around her heart and officially makes her his girlfriend.
