Well people have been screaming out for more original characters and less cliched expys of older ones, so why the hell aren't more people watching this.

And the 90s style artwork gave me this feeling like I was watching an anime movie, never felt this way from watching other anime series.

Tonight... we are young... so let's set the world on fire, we can burn brighter, than the sun...

Rally don't like Urabe's VA...

Apart from that okay first episode. But only 13 episodes? So they're most likely not even gonna make it into the Idol arc. Which might be for the best, as it was pretty dragged out, but still kinda sad.

Next episode panty scissors? Sure hope so.

that was truly amazing - so fun to get to fall in love with urabe all over again! great adaptation of the manga, my only problem being it seems like they condensed it a little too much, but that's to be expected...music was amazing as well - very romantic score with lots of classical instruments - nice change from most anime these days - also, urabe's seiyuu, ayako yoshitani, does an amazing job - spot on as to how i imagined she would sound - best show of the season (so far)!!!

Well that might have been the weirdest thing I have ever seen. In addition to it being one of the grossest. Seriously...that is just gross. Too much saliva man...just yuuuuuuck.

Anyway, it is very different imo. Throwback art style and unique female lead, especially the VA. Very different. That said, hopefully their is some solid plot and not just copious amounts of saliva. Hope the sex is handled well and isn't to brash but given the male lead I think it should be alright since he does balance out her weirdness (although he did lap up on that saliva first?)

Not the best show of the season thus far but interesting enough to follow.

Wow, Urabe's voice is cool in my ear.

This should be interesting.

YES! Thank you Anime!

Turned out to be better than expected. I like Urabe's voice. It is kinda deep and has a reserved tone on it. Looking forward for more weird fetishes in the coming episodes.

Good adaptation.
People who complain about mediocre shows should try this.
Fresh yet Weird in some meanings.

Urabe's voice is very deep, but not bad. Actually this new seiyuu is doing pretty good job channeling emotions in.

This is Hoods debut on non-explicit fanservice?

Yes. I was a bit worried when I saw how they had her skirt hiked up in that promo pic.

Art was better than I expected. But the Dream World scenes were very disappointing. Looks like they chose not to even try to render it as in the manga (prolly for fear of getting wrist cramps), and just did brief "flyby" type shots of a different vision.

Best first ep of the season by a long shot.

Artwork was pretty amazing, especially in the dream sequence.

Nazo no Kanojo = 40% average school anime, 60% mindf*ck.
Also, I'm pretty much sure the girl from the photo is Urabe.

This is WEIRD (and to some extent gross). Might watch another episode.

3/5

I've been reading the manga since the original one-shot and I even found it a bit unappetizing to watch the drool in animated form. Looks a bit thicker than it was in the manga. I'll get used to it, though.

4/5: for the Dream World being brushed over and the somewhat rushed pace. Hope they wont make a bunch of changes. Already spotted one but it doesn't effect the overall story.

There is something extremely appealing about Urabe despite her rather plain face.
It's probably the VA as she sounds really different from the usual female voices you hear, it sounds deeper and more sensual.
Furthermore Urabe's sudden movements from time to time (up to here)

You described what I have in my mind, thank :)

Feel like watching Welcome to NHK & Hen Zemi at the same time.

The 4th out of 5 manga that I'm reading that's being adapted this Spring.
The manga art was retro and old school already. I didn't think they would stick to it even in the anime. I like it. Feels really different from the lineup this Spring.
Urabe's voice is pretty cute but I imagined a bit differently, more like Misaki Mei's voice. Tsubaki was fine, props to MiyuMiyu.
The music is really good and so is the pacing of the show.
I admit I was disgusted too when I first read this but when it went on I just got used to it. Plus these drool interactions leads to really sweet moments. It's more about the connection they will be forming with every interaction and less about the drool tasting itself.
I'm looking forward to more of this. Can't believe this is the same studio who brought Seikon no Qwaser...

Lol i think everyone's reaction is the same as i was when i am reading the manga it is really weird at first but i live.

I never thought the confession will be on the first episode, but with 13 episodes i guess it makes sense.

I'm kinda disgusted because the drool looks weird.(Wouldn't have a problem if this was a bit less and thinner) But it's an interesting watch nonetheless. I hope I can get used to it xD

I completely agree. I found myself quite intrigued, but I'm very saliva-conscious, so all that saliva licking wasn't really a pleasant sight.

I think they are exaggerating the drool. Well, it's good though I don't really remember that bursting out laughing in the Manga.

EDIT: Why is a kid raging here Lol. If you don't want to update your list then don't log in as a member in MAL. Btw some of us is using MAL Updater so it automatically updates our list while watching the Anime ^_^

Love at first saliva how sweet. Had no plans on watching this one but it looks like it could turn out to be a decent series. The first episode was entertainingly weird and l love the nostalgic look its got going on.

Apparently, it taste sweet if you eat alot of fruit...no wait i'm thinking of something entirely different.

Blaming someone for weabooism on jap-pop-culture related site is so funny. And this kanji in your signature makes it's more delicious. I think the only weebaoo here is you, cutie :3

Jeez, amazing series, amazing episode. Everything is so perfect mixed up. Also quite rare post-confession anime.

Heh, not bad at all. I really can't wait to see how the rest of the manga will be covered. That say when Urabe had... saliva overflow issues, that was kinda unusual. but oh well. It seems like they are following the manga decently well. Artwork is perfect though, at least for this type/mood of anime.

Urabe's got schizophrenia, or something? I mean, a voice hallucination told her: "Tsubaki-kun is the first boy ever you're going to have sex with." xD

Also, why don't they just make out? Will they? Or Urabe doesn't wanna taste Tsubaki's saliva? If they make out, both will get to taste each others' saliva, obviously, and both get to feel satisfaction, I suppose. At the moment it's only Tsubaki who gets to feel satisfaction, as long as Urabe's satisfaction isn't Tsubaki licking her finger.

so it starts....droll tasting...getting sick....and back again.


i have to say tho, her voice seems to be far too energetic for her demeanor. for some reason i expected her voice to be much softer and more quiet.

Wow. this and Kuroko no basket seem to be the only 2 adaptaions that really follow their manga to the dot. I was really expecting some crappy un -cannon fillers to be added but no, nazo no kanojo exceeded my expectations. The animation is fluid and the voice acting are very fitting. I hope they keep up the good work.

The drool was made like that so it looks like sweet nectar or honey. Probably to meld it into the guy's view of what it looks like.

This was kind of gross. I'm sorry that I'm not as broad minded as everyone else in this topic seems to be, but if somebody tasted my drool, I'd be disgusted and certainly wouldn't go ahead and stick my finger in their mouth. Ew. Genuinely picked this up for the 90s feel and because I heard a few good things about the manga.

Still, I'm hoping they'll slowly leave the drool bit alone and it becomes more romance rather than some weird shit fantasy. Either way, I guess the fact I'm not dropping it right away proves that it wasn't badly executed, even if the plot is rather disturbing.

Btw the female voice actress is amazing.

Yeah i'm not gonna lie I don't really mind the whole saliva thing, but jeez, the damn sound affects are a bit gross. And yeah, I think Ayako Yoshitani was a good voice actor for Mikoto.

(oh, I spotted a troll, and a bad one at least that doesn't know its place!)

Episode was as expected: exotic and refreshing.

People who are grossed out: everyone has saliva in their mouth.
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.
