「プール」 (Puuru)
“Pool”

Unless I get a nice surprise next week and discover another episode of Tonari no Seki-kun (or I’m enlightened by a legitimate source), this week marks the end of one of a great 10-minute anime that you may or may not have picked up.

Boy wouldn’t it be awkward if this wasn’t the finale?

「ラジコン」 (Rajikon)

If there’s ever been an episode where Yokoi was the absolute and undisputed winner, I think this one takes the cake.

「将棋(2) (Shougi 2)

After its one week hiatus, Tonari no Seki-kun returns with one of its best episodes yet. With a great follow up to a previous story and the animation looking cleaner than ever, it felt like everyone who worked on it gave it 110%.

Tonari no Seki-kun – 05

「消しゴムはんこ」 (Keshigomu Hannko)
“Eraser Stamp”

While I do love all the antics that Yokoi and Seki-kun get themselves into, sometimes its tough to get through some of the less funnier ones. Which is why even though this week’s gag wasn’t terribly funny, the introduction of a random third character shook things up a bit (in a good way).

Tonari no Seki-kun – 01

「ドミノ」 (Domino)

With only 10 minutes to tell its story, Tonari no Seki-kun did a great job at capturing the essence of what made the manga such a joy to read.
