Haru Yoshida from the anime/manga series “Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun” by Robico is such a great character. Haru is one of the protagonists in the story and is the love interest for the main character, Shizuku Mizutani, a girl who spends all her time studying.
Haru is introduced as a violent boy who doesn’t go to school and is much feared by a lot of people. In reality, Haru’s feelings get hurt easily and when he found out his “friends” only hung out with him for money, he was extremely hurt.
After Shizuku gets him to go to school, Haru later reveals that he’s a goofy character who has a hard time reading the mood. He’s kind of awkward and seen as eccentric by his other classmates. Haru doesn’t know much about socializing, so he often makes weird comments or does odd things when around people. Despite this behavior, Haru is not dumb and is one of the top students in his class. He’s very kind, but very lonely and it seems like he has family troubles. Haru’s brother, Yuzan, is carefree and bold, but he and Haru don’t get along.
I like Haru’s character because he’s goofy and just a really interesting person. People misunderstand Haru and I feel bad for him. This series is ridiculous, but it’s also very bitterly sweet.
