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.

This series will make you blush the whole time.
Momokuri is a romcom anime about two lovebuds falling in love and they are together from the start.
One thing I like about this anime is it has no dramas,breakups,love triangle and other tropes we see in most romance anime.
It is pure wholesome stuff.the description may be a little's not about some girl stalking over a boy shamelessly.
It's only seen in first episode and later in the series is acknowledged as a bad thing.So no yandere-bullshit tbh.

Story-9/10 the story is wholesome and seems relatable.the story also focuses on couple's insecurities about their relationship which is such a ...

Mixed Feelings
Main girl (Kurihara) is interested in the main guy (Momotsuki) and confesses to him and the couple – Momo-Kuri – is created. So we have a very cute couple happening right in the first episode. The show doesn’t seem to waste time.

The only focus afterwards is about Kurihara being obsessed with her boyfriend, taking secretly pictures of him, stalking, having cringy fantasies and stealing his property to ‘worship’ it.

Momotsuki is regarded by his friends ...

Preliminary (10/26 eps)
Momokuri is just a show that's trying really hard to be the cutest thing you've ever seen. Shy kids having a clumsy relationship full of forced misunderstandings and awkwardness. And that's it. There is nothing else to this show, once sentence is literally all you need to describe everything.

But while it's not depth incarnate, it does succeed in portraying some legitimate heart warming cuteness. At first you may find the gags make you giggle or at least smile. The chibi style drawings are pretty adorable and the voice work is excellent. There's some goofy recorder music ...
