Manga Review: My Neighbor Seki, Volume 6, by Takuma Morishige

Rating (Out of 5): ~3.5
Publisher: Vertical Comics
Release Date: January 2016
Volumes: 9+
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 5. 7.

Goodreads Synopsis:

School Day Shenanigans

Seki's complicated games manage to distract Rumi... even when he's absent from school. Not only does Seki try to literally rewrite history, he performs surgery (on stuffed animals), and brings live creatures to cooking class. Meanwhile, Rumi focuses on saving the Earth itself.


I do enjoy this series quite a bit, though it’s more of a fun one-off to pick up for a little fun reading. There’s not an overall plot to follow. It’s a reprieve, really.
Seki is causing more and more trouble to Rumi, as she keeps getting caught up in the game that at this point she’s barely paying attention to class either. I enjoy the ongoing jokes and themes, like the robot family that Rumi is protective of. Rumi’s friend in class is still believing they’re having a love affair, and is even worried that Seki is bad for Rumi. Seki’s sister visits class, and Rumi tries helping, while we get to see how similar the siblings really are.
I don’t really have much to say about each volume of this series. It’s fun and easy, what you should be looking for when you pick it up.
