Synopsis Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun: The story of a strange youth surrounded by many friends

A true friend will never think of taking advantage of you. Instead, he will accept your every weakness and strength. The same is true for what is depicted in the film.Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun“.

Based on the manga of the same name by Robico, the film Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun tells the story of a high school student named Haru Yoshida (Masaki Suda). On his first day of school, he got into a fight with some students and since then, he hasn’t even appeared in class since the admission ceremony at his school.

As the person sitting next to Haru, a girl named Shizuku Mizutani (Tao Tsuchiya) is asked by her teacher to deliver Haru’s student documents to her home. Shizuku was a determined and diligent person, and her face was almost expressionless. Even though he didn’t give any response to his teacher, he still carried out his teacher’s request and went to Haru’s residence.

Shizuku arrived at a batting center which is listed as Haru’s address, but he doesn’t find Haru there and leaves the documents he brought with someone who guards the place, Mitsuyoshi Misawa (Mokomichi Hayami). On the way home, Shizuku met Haru for the first time. Haru also invites him to meet and make friends, because Shizuku is the first friend to visit his house.

One day, Haru suddenly forces Shizuku to go hang out with him. While they were eating, suddenly a group of students came and asked Haru to lend him the money. Haru, who thought they thought of him as a friend, gave them some money happily.

Haru also said that he didn’t want to come to school, because his friends were always afraid or thought he was weird and stayed away from him. Shizuku then reminded her that people who were truly friends with her would not use her presence as a source of money. Unfortunately, Haru got angry with Shizuku’s words and doused him with water. Unexpectedly, Shizuku splashed Haru back.

Unbeknownst to them, a classmate of theirs named Sohei Sasahara (Gaku Sano) saw the incident and was amazed at Shizuku’s courage. He also asked Shizuku to persuade Haru to want to go back to school, because he was once indebted to Haru. Not only Sohei, the teacher also asked Shizuku to convey that Haru would be expelled if he continued to play truant.

Shizuku returned to visit Haru’s residence and again she only met Mitsuyoshi. However, at that place, he met a group of students who often asked Haru for money. He overheard their conversation and as Shizuku expected, they were just using Haru’s money. Shizuku was angry and asked them to be more sincere friends with Haru. Shizuku didn’t know, Haru heard their conversation from inside the house. He rushed out to save Shizuku who was about to be hit by one of the students from the mob.

Haru feels so happy, because there is someone who wants to defend him. While dropping Shizuku home, Haru suddenly said to Shizuku that he liked the girl, not as a friend, but as the opposite sex. How would Shizuku deal with that? Will Haru return to school thanks to the girl he fell in love with? Watch the sequel in the movie Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun. Enjoy watching!
