lol @ the weird dream, like Tsubaki-kun said.

So, Mikoto is transfer student, who got assigned to sit next to Tsubaki. Mikoto is such a soft-spoken, my-pace girl, but is really straightforward with Tsubaki-kun.

That does not look like "accidentally" to me!!

lol @ the boy who runs next to Tsubasaki-kun is KajiKaji's character (and I instantly recognize the voice)!

And she knows all about his sickness and babbling about how he loves her just because he saw her whole face.

lol @ that whole dream with her, and the whole starting of relations.

No OP but ED was... ok.

Well, this should be a very unique watch.

Well after watching, unique would be an understatement. But it's taking off far better than most romances, a confession on the first episode, a mutual understanding of feelings, and very little melodrama. And as of right now, no introduction to a ceaseless love triangle. The OST was also really good, it fit the mood perfectly; but, the art and animation was somewhat dated, but, that could just be the style.

Was enjoyable.

Well, it's better than I feared, but worse than... wait, I barely hoped for Hoods to make a half-decent adaptation, and then suddenly, it comes out pretty good.

Yep, this will be one interesting anime to watch.

Liked all those posters in Akira's room which are spoofs of real movies.

Well, interesting episode. A lot better than I thought.

I think Mikoto Urabe's drool can cure cancer...

Impressive Voice Actress btw considering she's new to the industry. Anyways, going to continue watching this

The first episode was surprisingly good. It had a nice pace, the art and animation was good, and while strange the whole drool thing is, it allows for some interesting aspect of love between lovers. A good start for Hood's first show that isn't super crazy fan-service.

God help him if he gets addicted to some of her other bodily fluids.

This show is trippy and cute. I'm kind of liking it so far.

Although Mikoto seems to give off a creepy vibe. Similar to Senjougahara from Bakemonogatari.

I have to say that this series will []have me cringe badly for the following part in the spoiler
that will be my #1 problem. Regardless the following,

Was PLAIN GROSS! Despite that on the opposite side we have an ecchi innovation that presents none the less the “New Nose Bleed” so to speak. Instead of blood, it’s drool when the girl is happy on top of that. Joy is the trigger whereas normally it’s ecchi. Interesting concept to try out TBH.

About Urabe Mikoto, the very first thing I noticed of her is that her foot work is military in nature. Thus I wonder if she is some military person. Loved her first appearance with those blue strands on her hair. The design of the teacher here was plain and kind of reminded me Love Hina style there. Lovely depiction of Urabe in the spoiler
in general I like her composure there. What’s this? Oh dear, she sleeps in class. Well that was not expected but it’s nice there are girls to want to be friends with her. When Urabe ROFL in the spoiler
so did I! Remember that her Seiyuu is brand new to the industry and so I APPROVE! Her voice may be deep but I liker her laughter. It’s nice. It’s amazing how long Urabe can sleep but it’s even more amazing the whole tasting of the drool by your truly Akira in the spoiler
That shit contains germs and diseases beyond anything. I WOWed that’s all. I did like Urabe’s face there with drool. In fact it has to be the following,

That’s what made me change that girls with drool can be MOE despite the weird showing of that. Another thing I noticed of Urabe is her UFO stuff in the spoiler
both bag and pen are in part of the theme. As much as I applaud of Urabe for having the gut to suddenly jump on Akira’s bad here. I have to decline the drool tasting part. However I did like the part in spoiler
despite being drool tasting time, it was setup as romantic.

About the fan service, for those wondering WTF is up with that in this series? Well I checked the manga and yes the mid part where it gets really ecchi. My results:
  • Now in the beginning the results in the spoiler
    should make it all clear. BlankBs and BlankVs all around. Like in Symphogear. Now that is mighty good and will have less problem with censors.

  • Panties of Urabe in the spoiler
    are going to be a plenty. IMO that’s what will be a lot around.
Other than that, nudes with blanks and that’s all. Check chapter 30 around there. Less they change it around.

About the ED, I liked a lot the ED for its showings of the girls in the spoiler
those are mighty fine depictions of characters.

About preview, expect more panties in the spoiler
for which I do mention it will recur. Can’t wait to see Urabe’s scissor work on the paper here. So much Akira gets surprised. Perhaps some naked Urabe here? Not sure of censors but Symphogear did that so why not in this series?

BTW Image Stitches are done in the spoiler
nice ones of Urabe and groups

Intermission in the spoiler
is pretty nice and artful.

Obligatory GIF of Urabe’s fan service in the spoiler
now that’s not bad. White panties and she is a virgin. Now if someone can open a club of this, I could put more of them there.

I'm so happy they did a adaptation of the manga... I really like it

The animation is well done its close to the manga's art style
I really like the VAs they chose for the cast especially Urabe.. fits her perfectly

what to say about this... imo her VA is a little wierd, the rather deep voice is kinda unusual, but everything about this series seem to be like that so maybe it will make sense as the series progresses.
Good Stuff, looking forward for the rest

word. got that exact same feeling as i watched it. did get me more interested too

about this first ep. pretty good. thought it wouldve been fanservice filled due to the "accidentally tasting her drool" i read on the description. while i thoguth it was gross it did move the plot a lot. her vomiting drool made me say oh hell no. wtf lol. although she is a unique character i liked her from her first appearance. haha when he got better after getting his second dose of her drool i thoguth " OH SNAP U GOT DA AIDS"

will keep watching. dont let the description fool you.

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 make her resemble a carnivore examining her prey... And there is her boldness in terms of sexuality, of course.

It shows that this show has the same director as Uchuu Kyoudai. The amount of little details is unrivaled, however, they always add something to the mood instead of detracting from it.

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 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.

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.

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.

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 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.
