RightStuf Synopsis:

Every day is a new surprise at the back of Rumi Yokoi's classroom. And she is consistently being inconvenienced by her neighbor Seki, at least he hasn't been caught... Or so she thought. Apparently someone else has noticed Yokoi and Seki back there, and this person can only imagine what that pair are conspiring.


This series is so fun and so adorable.
Yokoi and Seki are getting into lots of classroom antics again. Seki is blindfolding himself while creating a face on his desk. He’s making armies out of his food and boardgame pieces, trying to win jenga. Challenging himself to think of funny or sad memories. On a fieldtrip, he tries hiding his past games, inadvertently getting Yokoi to help. When he brings out his robot friends at the pool, Yokoi gets motherly and steals them again.
But they’re not the only ones anymore. The girl sitting behind Yokoi, not seeing what Seki is up to, starts thinking that they’re having a love affair. When Seki tries making a game involving the guy in front of him’s back, he’s almost found out. He’s almost caught by a teacher in the yard.
This series is so fun, and I’m always looking forward to reading the next one.
