    Hypothetically speaking, what would you say if I told you that Tonari was in my top ten anime for 2012 (as number ten of course) even though I found Haru and Shizuku unlikable? Hypothetically, of course. And what did you think of Sukitte (If you even watched it) since it alos has unlikable leads?

    • Oki says:

      Well, with Sukitte it’s different. When the MCs are stupid, there is an air of OH THEYRE MISUNDERSTANDING EACH OTHER LIKE IDIOTS and it ends with me liking them more cause of it? I mean I only watched some because my friend told me it was super better later? But eh.

      But when it comes to Tonari…I dont know what else I can say but I disagree? I mean I’ve made it pretty clear here. I HATE THIS SHOW. But we’re all entitled to our opinions. . .I just cant understand in any way??

      • MCAL says:

        For me, there was a certain charm to the series and the characters as a whole that was hard to resist. And of course, if you aren’t won over by charm, then there is not much left to like. The pacing was bad for sure, but I can’t say same for writing (Again, the charm). I might also have been slightly persuaded by other blogers as it seems like a vast majority of them had this show in the top of the season. (Might I suggest lookng at some of them) Personally, I think its slightly biased, but they make logical points. I just couldn’t hate this show, all things considered, but like you said, to each their own opinion. Horray for the 1st admendment!

        • Oki says:

          Naw, this show is legit terrible and I’ve already read all the other blogs. Thanks for commenting though!

    I won’t lie, I felt that was a crappy ending as well. But hey, I sat through this show for Natsume, so I didn’t really expect much from Mitty x Haru anyway. Yamaken, Yuuzan and the other supporting characters were cool.

    …At least Haru didn’t accidentally hurt anyone this time?

    • Oki says:

      I hate this show so fucking much and I’d almost rather watch Blood C again than have to sit through a show where people are lauding it for the worst fucking reasons.

      • MCAL says:

        Even if I did hate the show with a burning passion, to say that people are lauding it for the worst reasons really isn’t fair to them. Their points make perfect sense and I don’t see anything inherently wrong with them. Perhaps they were disagreeable reasons? Sorry if I sound like I’m being annoying here too.

        • Oki says:

          Look, I will state this once. I have read their points and I think they’re all completely off base, and if I wasn’t a head figure posting on a blog? I would be arguing with them. It’s not in my agenda to make enemies online. The reason I’m not arguing with you is the same reason, I value you as a reader on the blog. I completely disagree with your opinion on this and nothing can defend this show, I have *tried*. But honestly? Have you seen my posts? Read them all? I detail quite nicely why I dislike this show and I don’t want to make it a personal vendetta. That’s all, I don’t want to name names or make you feel personally offended. Honestly I’d rather just call opinions wrong than call people wrong, that’s why I’m not just calling it out.

          Point being, I value you as a reader but I hate this show and nothing you or anyone else says has impacted that opinion. That’s all. :)

        • Hideki says:

          I have to agree with oki on this one. This is by far one of the most boring, irritating shows that i’ve come across. And yeah, people really ARE lauding this show for the worst reasons. Oki, HILARIOUS and incredibly accurate review! Keep it up! If they make another season i might just watch the horribleness JUST to read your reviews!

    The best thing about this show was reading Oki’s annoyed comments afterwards. I actually started watching Tonari because I had ran into one of your reviews and I was really curious to understand why you were so angry about it. And I have to say that nothing goddamn happened in the whole series. I mean I watched the last episode and didn’t even realize it was the last until I read it on some blog one week later. Ok, Natsume was great in the last two episodes and Yamaken is a nice character, but the show… well, you said it all in this last review.
    I actually think that the story had a lot of potential for tragedy. I can see Haru killing somebody in the end because it seemed to me he never learned his lesson. But maybe I’m a bit of a sociopath myself and can’t understand the ‘love changes people’ concept. Yes, that must be it.
    Anyways, your comments always made my day, so I’d say it was worth it. I’m still laughing after the ‘my shoes’ picture (nice shoes, btw).
    PS: Mentioning a handsome attorney (whom I know nothing about) to attract my attention really isn’t fair. Now I have to look him up.
