Tonari no Seki-kun

Tonari no Seki-kun is a short length series that revolves around the eponymous Seki-kun and his attempts to make classes less boring, much to the dismay of his colleague, Rumi-chan. From Shōgi matches to magic tricks to doll playing to a fully functioning postal service, Seki-kun shows his resourcefulness and creativity by making use of everything at his disposal and transforming the classroom into a genuine playground.
Of course, all this goes on with little or no regard for the teacher or for the exasperated Rumi-chan.
I have also read the manga, and I have to say that I prefer the anime version for the reason that Rumi-chan's internal monologue is hilariously voiced by the prodigiously talented Kana Hanazawa-san.
She comments on Seki-chan's every movement with an impassioned voice that made me tear-up... from all the laughter. I wholeheartedly recommend watching this series. Seriously, you need to watch this ASAP! And make sure you tell your friends about it as well. :)
