One thought on “My Neighbor Seki, Vol. 2”

  1. Macam Rumi cakap-- Seki is such a cheeky jerk. In a cute way, of course. I always find it amazing on how Seki could survive doing all that stuff while in class. Tapi menariknya hubungan sahabat Rumi Yokoi dan Seki ini buat saya rasa pelik pula kalau tiba-tiba Seki acting all normal. Rasa kasihan sungguh saya dengan Rumi. A fun and cute read, sama macam yang pertama. Entah apalah Seki nak buat selepas ini.

  2. So the total ignoring of class continues!In this volume, we have what you've come to expect if you read volume one. There's really no need to read volume 1, since there's no overarching story, so it's not a problem if you skipped the first one.This volume has a few chapters outside of the usual classroom and a new character to shake things up. If you enjoyed the first volume, you'll probably like this one too.

  3. Such a fun manga. Love the anime, but glad I get to see some of the manga didn't make it into the anime, so I could really enjoy the manga too. I think my favorite was the class trip. Seki is such a little devil.

  4. More ridiculous hilarity as Seki plays more ridiculous games that disturb Yokoi. But now there's a third classmate, Goto, who has only seen part of the goings ons, and has developed an entirely different reason for Yokoi's intense glances at Seki.

  5. Seki is up to his usual tricks. What I like is the way the perception of the class as a whole is filtering into the story.

  6. The appearance of Goto adds to the ridiculous hilarity plus I love how reluctantly Yokoi gets so immersed in Seki's antics. Heh.

  7. When I realized this was a manga series available through my library, I just put a hold on the first two volumes, because why not. I think this one included more episodes that I was unfamiliar with, since they weren't adapted for the anime. The developing misunderstanding of Yokoi's and Seki's relationship by Goto is amusing. I think in the anime it came up in just one episode, but it appears to a recurring theme in the manga, so I will probably read more.Also, I love the font and back covers sh [...]

  8. In a way, this reminds me of Krazy Kat or Charlie Brown trying to kick the football. Endless variations of a simple situation.

  9. Seki's efforts to entertain himself (and Yokoi?) when he should be paying attention in class continue. Again, many of his activities tell stories - like when Seki pretends to be a Titan eating hot dog warriors, or when he creates snapshots of the life of a Lucky Laughter Game man. Yokoi can't help but get caught up in his stories, sometimes even to the point of getting directly involved and trying to rein in Seki's more sadistic tendencies in order to make his stories happier. In this volume, we [...]

  10. If you can imagine Calvin and Hobbes as told from Susie Derkins' point of view, you'll have a good idea what My Neighbor Seki is like.Rumi Yokoi is a good girl, a diligent student who wants to pay attention in class and get good grades, but she's had the misfortune of getting assigned a seat all the way at the back of the room, right next to Seki, the class goof-off. Now Seki isn't the disruptive class clown type. No, he prefers to take advantage of his location to play around without his teache [...]

  11. ~4/5This 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 [...]

  12. Action, adventure, romance? This quirky manga has none of those, but I loved it anyway. It is about a school girl and the kid that sits next to her in class. I've tried to think of a good way to describe it, but I'm at a bit of a loss. I mean nothing really happens. Seki wiles away the school day playing games, while Yokoi wishes he would concentrate more on his studies. Instead of getting Seki to mend his ways, she finds herself caught up in whatever crazy enterprise he has going from card tric [...]

  13. Masih tetap selucu jilid 1. Rumi dan Seki masih tetep aja sibuk sendiri pas jam pelajaran. Entah yah, punya teman samping kayak Seki ini asyik atau musibah. Seru sih ngeliat dia sibuk main-main pas jam pelajaran, tapi kalau diperhatikan terus, pelajaran malah bisa amburadul :))Di sini bertambah lagi 1 karakter ke dalam lingkaran Rumi dan Seki. Cuma di sini karakternya itu malah salah paham. Dia kira Rumi dan Seki itu pacaran :)).

  14. Even more stories not found in the anime, and every one is hilarious. Yokoi must deal with a school trip to a place Seki-kun visited in his youth, Othello of the Undead, a shy girl named Goto assuming that her and Seki are dating, and the return of the Robot Family.I don't give five stars easily, but this series is just as wonderful as the anime, and is well worth buying. It's especially wonderful in that it is all ages, and makes a great intro to manga reading.

  15. Neighborly CharmLove this fun series! Innocent and full of make-believe charm, it tugs at the child within us all (even within the grouchiest). As Rumi participates more (reluctantly, willingly, and otherwise) in Seki's games and play, are they getting a bit closer? Maybe not as close as new friend Goto thinks! Note: The second bonus mini-chapter about getting a hair cut is hilarious!

  16. I had my doubts about whether or not Morishige could keep going with the same joke for a second volume, but he continues with the same humor that makes the first volume so fun and adds a new device (Yokoi's friend mistaking her relationship with Seki) as well as a new setting (the field trip up the mountain). Can't wait to read the next volume!

  17. Wahahaha.Mangaka-nya sudah pasti sama kreatifnya dengan Seki-kun dalam menciptakan berbagai permainan yang bisa dilakukan selama jam pelajaran. Jangan-jangan pengalaman pribadi? :DDi jilid ini, bertambah satu orang pengamat lagi. Tapi kali ini pengamat Rumi yang selalu mengamati Seki (permainan Seki, maksudnya), sehingga malah timbul misunderstanding yang kocak :P

  18. Even I would be distracted by a classmate like Seki. Although with his playful imagination and the interesting scenes displayed through his playfulness I think I'd want to videotape it for later viewing. Seki is hilarious and Yokoi's reactions are just as hilarious. The school trip. Pfft. Oh man. I belly laughed so hard. "Dragon killer."

  19. Yokoi and Seki strike again. I was laughing as much as I did in the first one. The mini golf episode was one of my favorites and I cheer out loud (literally) whenever the emergency conscious robots make an appearance. Clamoring for more

  20. di sini kyknya yg kelebihan imajinasi si Rumi sama Gotortama, Rumi yg merhatiin Seki main, Rumi bikin cerita sendiri di pikirannya, trus si Goto yg ngeliat Rumi sama Seki, bikin cerita sendiri soal hubungan mreka berdua. :D ada2 aja :D

  21. This volume is similar to the first, with Seki doing the most random of things during class, but I like that there's a bit more going on, such as with a girl assuming Yokoi and him are in love and etc. I enjoyed this one more. ^^

  22. After volume one, I was concerned with out well this would translate into additional stories. I'm thrilled to see my concern was unfounded! Still kookie. Still sweet. I'm hooked on this series.

  23. Seems this just keeps getting more adorable and makes you want to keep reading. And the covers for these are also good.

  24. parah! bodor banget lah ini komik. kasian Rumi-nyaa. mana kocak banget dengan imajinasinya si Goto terhadap Seki-Rumi ><
