4/10. absence of decent story line was not even compensated with moe


What does moe have to do with this series?

I must admit I am confused with the expectations of people in general. Weird.

7/10 - Decent characters and I like the animation style. The music is fitting and decent.

I do think it's a bit lacking in the plot. I'm not really fond of a plot that's only premise is romance. I'm fine with romance, but romance for the sake of romance and nothing more is a bit boring.

I really enjoyed the last episode, they visited some of Akira's family which is nice.

This anime was certainly one of my favorites throughout this season. Admittedly, the plot needed a bit more work, but nevertheless, I looked forward to each episode. It was nice to finally learn a bit more about Akira's family and see a bit more of Urabe's character (and damn, that was a pretty smile). Lookin' forward to a 2nd season; maybe we'll learn a bit more about Urabe's family and see them kiss for once. (づ。◕‿‿◕。)づ

And so...*drumroll*...

...9/10.

I would normally give it an 8 due to its lack of plot (I prefer anime like Acchi Kocchi or Lucky Star when it comes to lack of plot), but the lack of tits in my face and upskirt shots was seriously appreciated; it's a nice break from the anime series that utilize a ton of fan service. Plus, the slice of life aspect of it was truly well done.

Certainly one of the most fun anime this season. Probably my top 2 or 3.

I agree with you there. Definitely has one of the best closures I've seen in this season. 9/10 for the series. :D

I liked every episode, this series is a bit different from the others. I hope for a S2 too and I'll try to read the manga.

8/10

Loved the show.

However, I want to rename it "Mysterious Dad X." Where the hell they were hiding him all this time is beyond me.

I wouldn't go as far as calling that real closure. It's a very, very open ended end for a very weird but somehow great story. Well done for season 1, though (I need to believe there'll be a season 2! >_<).

Gonna miss it as much as Acchi Kocchi and Sankarea..ahh :'(

can you really say it lacks in plot because it dosn't have the type of plot you like?

I thought I was going to drop it after episode 1 but mysteriously I found myself watching it every week.

I loved the old-style art and animation, the bgm and the opening, ending and of course the characters and the interesting relationships between them but I never got used to the drool thing...

7/10 ~

I'm sure he works a ton, maybe even in another town or something. He shows up in two chapters of the manga that I can think of.

...he has a dad?


rofl this was my first thought. like, wth? where has that dude been until then?!?! I read the manga but don't remember any mention or glimpse of his dad it it hahah

I was getting really FED UP with this show for like 4 episodes, but the last one was a bit better, and this one was WAY better imo, nice mix of stories (the sister one a little bit, and the grave visiting). I'm glad there was no 'competition' or that titty troll oka in this one, hahah.

I guess, I also "liked" this episode cause I utterly abhorred 8-11. Also they had sorta set the sister side story/detour up when she tried on her old school uniform in a previous episode so I was surprised and glad that they actually did show a bit of it (the manga gives you an entire chapter of just his sister but that would have been jarring and confusing in this setting). Of the things they could have ended on (from the manga) I think this was the best choice, even if it's not renewed for a second season.

A great series. Really well-made and interesting. Tsubaki x Urabe is my spring season OTP (aside from Niiya x Yuuko). The final episode was probably the best in all series, somehow moved me. Overall score: 7/10.

I think this was a pretty nice closing episode, some quality bonding between the main characters in their own quirky way (though the drool tasting in front of the grave was probably more disturbing for me than the whole drool fetish in the show). 4/5. It's nice to finally see a father in a show, parents so rarely appear.

I should have enjoyed this series more...however, after the first few episodes I wasn't really interested in either Tsubaki nor Urabe. The retro feeling of the visuals and the relationship progress was great though. 6/10.

I enjoyed every single episode. Not super happy about the last one though.

I'd say 9/10 if S2, 8/10 if not :p.

I don't comment alot but when i do, its for a unique anime such as this. Great series and am seriously hoping for a season 2. Usually at the end of these kinds of animes i get a little depressed, but the outlook on the last episode was very positive.




*edit* actually getting a little upset i cant watch another episode

I really hope for a second season. I think this was a really good romance genre of the season in a truly unique way, as it does seem the drool exchanges has become second nature. I thought there would be more to the ending, but this is pretty well heart warming because of the special relationship they both have with each other.

I give it a 9/10. I was truly fascinated with the art and the theme songs. They have this sort of nostalgia thing where it seems like it was from the 90s, and they brought it to 2012. I enjoyed the character's personalities very much, and I very look forward to e OVA!

Great series. The problem is that it's really hard to get someone to give it a fair chance. Most people are instantly turned off by the drool thing. Anyways, this sums up my feelings

a really interesting an unique spin on a romance, really liked it! As I said in my first post on the first episode... I watched this anime purely just because the synopsis was so unusual, and then that lead to me thurally enjoying this, the drool didn't even bother me at all after the first couple of episodes at all, and I loved what Urabe could do with it (feel emotions etc etc)

and the last scene in the graveyard was a nice touch and a very satisfying ending for me, really hope there is a second season and it progresses further, and will definitely be reading the manga at some point

very high 8/10! :)

I really liked it, but i'll only give it 6/10 because the MC is a spineless prick.

Now, for my usual mini-review...
Video: 7/10 - Good, but does not quite measure up to my expectations for a 2012 anime.
Audio: 7/10 - The vocals are good, but the BGM could have been done better.
Plot: 9/10 - It scores big points for being unique and interesting, but not full marks because there were too many moments that left me thinking "YOU IDIOT" towards the male MC.

Overall, it deserves a 8/10, but I'll give it 6/10 purely because the MC pisses me off to much.

At least Akira is committed to his one girlfriend, unlike most harem anime where there's too many girls going after the MC while clearly displaying idiocy of not seeing their feelings. >_>

Well that's true. Even if he's an idiot, at least he's not an indecisive idiot.

I haven't read the manga, so don't make fun of me. But, I totally thought she was going to end up being an alien. They kept zooming in on the ufo key chain on her school bag and her ufo pen. I thought it had to mean something since they did it so many time. Tsubaki and Urabe even had space/alien posters in their rooms(Star Mars lol). That was the only thing I was disappointed about, because I was expecting it since the 3rd episode. Besides that it was a very good. It was weird, but that's what makes it unique. Now we just have to wait for the OVA!

Some people think she is a descendant from Atlantis civilization wihich would make sense as they were able to transmit feelings through water.

That would SUCK if she turned out to be an alien. Would ruin the entire show for me. Anyway I think its highly unlikely.

It was a very cute love story.
The whole anime was theatrical enough and showed different hooks and cliffhangers which kept my attention up all the time (such as those small flying saucers reminding us of the word 'naze').
Differently from any other ecchi anime I've seen before, it was pretty oneiric. Somehow it reminds me of Fellini's movies, which are something you should definitely see if ecchi and oneiric suits you.
Ah, I should write a review ^^

I would totally say new anime's are starting to get looking alike around the comedy and high school section, but this one, my goodness, Original storyline and original bond. I totally loved it. I hope there will be a season 2 as the ending wasn't really like an ending. But Urabe's smile was soooooooo cute and it's one of those anime moments where you kind of... you know... wipe your eyes after watching it and stuff.
Looking forward to the OVA.
You guys will argue over anything.

9/10

To be honest, I didn't expect much from this. I was bored one day and just clicked on a rather recent anime at random and this was it. But then after the first episode, I was intrigued. For one part, I love the s**t out of the opening and end credits songs. That alone had got me to watch the second episode just for the music. (I went and learned both songs)

After that, I was hooked. The whole drool concept was odd, but not gross to me. And this was such an innocent romance story. After I finished ep 13, I realized that I really needed more because all I could think about was "What's next!?". So, I read the entire manga up to date in a day. Now I'm sitting here eagerly awaiting the 9th manga and the OVA that is supposed to come out next month. This series has just earned itself a lifetime fan. It's not super action packed, but it isn't dull. All sexual references were tastefully done. And it's super adorable.

Some people are saying that they doubt a second season is going to happen. I think as long as the feedback on it is overall pretty good, and the manga continues going strong, there is no reason to say that they wouldn't. Especially since they already have enough content in the manga to fill another 13 episode season. But, who knows, I can hope can't I? :)

If I have only one complaint about the series (manga/anime), it's that Urabe isn't as mysterious as they made it sound like she'd be. HOWEVER! It's not a deal breaker for me at all, because, she's just odd enough to make you wonder still. So really, it's just a matter of mislabeling I think. Still a good anime.

Cute series with a fascinating character. The ending leaves a lot of stuff unanswered so I'm hoping for a second part.

It took some while for me to complete but this anime has been a great ride, loved it! It's sad that it ended, at least we'll get an OVA though but hopefully a second season in the future.

damn this show was awfull and after the first episodes i was really looking forward to a well made and refreshing romance.
but in the end the characters were boring and the story was predictable and had less progress than the slowest slice of life show.
And while the saliva exchange had a really nice erotic appeal in the beginning it beame boring very fast too since it was always the same.
I am disapoint
