Dat animation though. Was expecting a typical romance series, although I've never watched any before.
This seems fun. Stalker-sama.

Not very shaded/ graded art, comes across as flat.
Not sure if it's unappealing though, guess I'll see during 3-ep rule.

Maybe this is good for chilling the mood....
like dessert after those main courses

Might give a try, I am weak for romance...

Rom-Com! count me in

Wait, so she actually takes a photo of him right where he can see her? Great job, you're totally not opening yourself up to a lawsuit or something. But I can totally see the restraining order you're gonna get.

Honestly, I'm probably going to give this one a miss. It'll probably be a great anime for those who love cutesy little stalkers falling in love, but not for me.

Look at all the views already, and all the comments are pretty much exclusively Japanese. It seems to have quite the following there. Why, I don't know why. Looks painfully generic.
Then again, the Japanese aren't necessarily known for their good taste in anime.
lol and u are

I hate it when anime voice actors contort their voices to sound as "cute" as possible.

Her helium-voice will give me a headache. Nobody sounds like that.

Sep 4, 2015 7:47 PM by Red_Keys

Seems cute

Sep 4, 2015 12:28 PM by MaahHeim

Cute but I like my stalker this way

I don't think I need another series about 14 year olds discovering first love and being awkward around each other for 12 episodes.

Also why did the girl ask at the end if her loving the guy was something odd. ("Is my love weird?")
Surprise yuri inc? Doubt it though.


They just made a kind of pun: the kanji for love (恋) and the kanji for weird (変) are similar, and she probably means something like if her love is weird because she stalks her own boyfriend.

The animation looks kinda weird and this is not the kind of stuff I would usually watch but I guess I'll give it a chance...

Looks great.

Ugh. Not a fan of the girly character designs. Like, make the males look like actual boys please. Stop trying to satisfy the horny otakus who are also trap fans when the rest of the cast will have underaged girls.

Shinya Momotsuki: Nobuhiko Okamoto (Bakuman.)

hmmm maybe?
