A short review, as this isn't a series that really needs to be picked apart, as it really is a 'what you see is what you get' kind of production.

But finally, a tsundere-esque lead I didn't instantly want to punch! And this helped me to relate to the main protagonist's struggle to embrace her burgeoning sexuality and the unavoidable emotional growth that adds an innocent, accessible charm to a pretty 'all-or-nothing' journey. They went with 'all', and it was done very well.

As long as you can accept that a normal, 15 year old girl would have such lofty ambitions to have 100 'sex friends' as the catalyst to this tale of typical, emotionally underdeveloped miscommunication, awkward erections and raging hormones, then you may enjoy this series as much as I did.

An ecchi/school life/sexual content/romance... recipe for disaster? Not this one.
Aside from being laugh-out-loud hilarious more than once (especially towards the end), it was a story that was almost entirely honest with itself, which went a very long way to making it work so well. The execution gave enough of everything to leave the impression of a well rounded-off series, without the 'too-neat' finality of a story with such a direct premise.

At times, the sheer lack of logic and emotional honesty between the two main characters can feel like it's pushing the limits, but as the overarching honesty of the telling just keeps blossoming, it ends up serving to place what seems to be the perfect element of depth and real-life reflection to the story.

Would recommend to anyone looking for a lighter, well animated comedic pit-stop.
