Momokuri

Stalking and kleptomania has never been something that I have considered in itself cute. I have always considered it a creepy and disturbing hobby, yet, Momokuri has turned this disturbing act into something completely different. They have made it as cute as a couple of fluffy bunny ears.

The anime is about a girl called Kurihara Yuki. She is stalking a short boy called Momotsuki Shinya, nicknamed ‘Momo-kun’. She takes photos of his expressions and collects items he has touched. She decides to tell Momo how she feels when she hits two hundred pictures. Momo accepts her feelings and the anime is about them progressing their relationship.

The one positive thing that kept me watching this anime was its innocence. They don’t kiss, he only walks her to the bus stop and they do wholesome activities like a BBQ and studying. The clothing that they wear are even more adorable. Momo and his friends wear corduroys and cardigans, whereas the girls also wear cardigans and dresses.

This is where the negatives come in. As adorable and charming it might be, it lacks any reality. The ability to relate to any of the characters are lost the moment the episode starts. Furthermore, the colours are pastel and bright, the art is simple and the voices are incredibly high pitched. One of the factors I take into account when watching anime is the art. Making this rainbow anime unforgivable. You can watch an anime which is simple, yet this was too simple.

4/10
