Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun is a rather interesting manga to me, since while it does have extensive Will They or Won't They?
it is created using an excuse other than denial and Can Not Spit It Out
The main couple have both already confessed to each other early in the manga, yet they still aren't together. Apparently because they both have some rather severe emotional issues due to their parents being screwed up.
Also great opening line for the male lead: "You brought this on yourself! Now Mark is going to die!"
The female lead is almost as good: "I have a dream: To make 10 million Yen a year. To achieve this goal, there is only one thing I can be interested in... Calculus."
Also, I'm a bit confused as to if it's shoujo or shounen, since it seems to use mainly shoujo tropes but with a shounen type twist to them... if that makes any sense.
I'm curious as to what others think of it.
