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.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

tldr; this is a moe anime and it makes you feel moe well, so it's good. 9/10.

This anime ain't gonna make you feel. It ain't gonna make you be amazed with intricate story plots and heart wrenching scenes. This ain't that type of anime.

It's a moe anime. If you're looking to say "d'awww" and be smiling while watching these two lovebirds be shy and cute, this is the anime for you!

Don't listen to the other reviews where they rate it badly because of the lack of story or they don't find an intricate plot where there's not meant to be any. This anime is read more

You know this type of anime that are so cute that one can't help but say "awww, this is adorable!"? Momokuri is one of it's finest examples.

Yuki Kurihara is a girl that is absolutely obssesed with Momo, mainly just because he's extremely cute due to his short height and a bit girly looking, calling Yuki a stalker doesn't make justice to her character, she knows everything about him: what he does, what he likes and dislikes... all before they start their relationship during the first seconds of the anime and without him knowing about it.

While this might look creepy and the perfect concept for a read more

Every anime that focuses on romance requires some sort of unexpected developments within the story and plot. It should feature sudden developments that could have a devastating effect to the characters along with the events or narrative. There should be drama, emotional moments full of dialogue, and although optional, should introduce a cast of characters that you can fantasize together for your fan fictions that nobody cares about. Lastly its’ crucial that there are characters that viewers can make a personal connection with to understand them better! Momokuri throws away the standards of the typical romance anime, and curb stomps it to the ground while read more

Art/Characters: When first seeing this art, I was a little hesitant, but overall it looked pretty cute and the characters seemed to be interesting, so I gave it a go. I was not disappointed after watching just one or two episodes. The colors are really bright and cute and the animation is fluid and easy to follow. Overall I felt that this show was really easy on the eyes. One of the other things that I really appreciated about this art style is how crisp the characters look. The surroundings are the same way, and because of this, it didn’t look like the characters were read more
