Our former Simulcast Momokuri just wrapped up its first season earlier this week, so now that every episode has aired, you’ve got no reason not to just binge watch the whole thing! But in case you do need a reason, we’ve got 3 why Momokuri is the best series you’ve never seen:
Reason 1: Momokuri Don’t Care
Momokuri doesn’t care about the way things are supposed to be done. We’ve seen it a million times: boy meets girl, boy falls for girl, boy and girl live happily yadda, yadda, yadda… What if we told you there was another way? How about girl meets boy, girl adamantly studies boy’s facial expressions, daily habits, schedule, physical traits, and preferences. When girl finally confesses to boy… boy says yes! But at what cost?
Reason 2: Momokuri Got Style
With all the anime on the market these days, it’s important for shows to differentiate themselves from the rest of the pack. A great way to do this is by employing a unique art style, which Momokuri has got in spades. The series employs non-descript backgrounds for much of the action, allowing the viewer to concentrate on the characters and their over-the-top chibi reactions.
Reason 3: Momokuri = Seriously Adorable
Really. Just look at those chibi little expressions. Kawaii? Yes. Too kawaii? Maybe. But the brilliance of Momokuri is that it manages to balance this cuteness with just a twinge of stalker creepiness. But who hasn’t done a little crush stalking before?!
Do you really need any other reason? Momokuri is the best series you’ve never seen.
