My Neighbor Seki is a collection of short stories that revolve around two classmates who sit at the back of their high school homeroom. In each chapter Seki devises a new way to kill time in his school desk, to best avoid boredom. And along the way, he ends up distracting the girl who sits next to him Rumi; who's mind goes wild as Seki pushes the limits of his disobediance. Seki's humor is extremely thoughtful and mainly visually based. Author Morishige has compiled dozens of creative ways to kill time, but has brilliantly rendered those everyday ideas to curiously work within the restrictions of a high school classroom.
