Synopsis

After taking one hundred secret photos and observing him from afar for months, second-year high schooler Yuki Kurihara has finally mustered up the courage to ask out her first-year crush Shinya “Momo” Momotsuki. Although taken by surprise, the bashful Momo accepts; however, he does not know the profoundly abnormal truth. As her strait-laced friend, Norika Mizuyama, has observed, Yuki has developed some unnerving—but nonetheless sincere—habits: taking pictures of Momo in secret, doing extensive research into his personal life, collecting his used straws, and even going “Momo watching.”

Though Momo remains blissfully unaware of his new girlfriend’s peculiar habits, he does notice some oddities in their daily conversations. Still unsure and nervous about his first relationship, Momo finds himself regularly getting into awkward interactions due to his inexperience, but nevertheless resolves to make his new girlfriend happy.

Momokuri follows Yuki and Momo as they shyly explore their newfound love, and also deal with the problems that arise from it.

Review

This is probably the most relaxing and peaceful anime about a stalker you will ever watch. The main girl stalks Momokuri and obsesses over him, then she asks him out and he says yes. Then we get to see their relationship develop and great humour through the girls stalkerish tenancies even though they are still going out.

I can’t say that I remember a lot of it but they introduce some other fun characters as well and deliver a genuinely good romantic comedy.

    • It’s a bit creepy but I don’t really mind. The show doesn’t take the stalker aspect very seriously anyway and uses it as more of a punchline than anything else. Her stalkiness is unobtrusive and legal, she just takes pictures of him and collects things he throws away, she’s nothing compared to Yuno from mirai nikki or something like that.
