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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
