This anime is the "what happens when 2 young high school students like each other" scenario, along with lots of foreheads taking up the screen. It is pretty episode based with each episode divided into 3-4 small skits lasting around 5 mins each, the main variation being the locations or activity. It starts out amusing for an episode or 2, but once you realize that what happens in episode 1 is what you get for episode 2-12, the enjoyment decreases and things get rather repetitive. It's all about the girl teasing the guy, and the guy overthinking everything in an attempt to get back at her. It's cute at first, but just wears your patience as everything becomes really predictable. This makes it get less funny and more annoying, like when you use or do something too often, it gets stale. In terms of story or progression between the characters, there really isn't much. The actions between the duo don't go anywhere exciting, not even in episode 12. Maybe it's left off like this for a possible season 2, but we don't really need another 12 episodes of this. Either way, it's just the same thing over and over under different scenarios such as at school, park, swimming, biking, etc. There is a trio of girls that get a few of their own scenes, but they really aren't interesting or shown enough to where they have much of an impact in any way. There isn't much else to say, it's just the same thing over and over. The charm and comedy of it loses its appeal more with each episode and watching the guy overthink things constantly just drags things out when you know exactly how it will turn out. It might be more enjoyable for younger viewers, but as an adult it just kind of makes you roll your eyes as you now know better and don't play these games anymore. Putting on a romance element or progressing their interest in one another is what is missing to keep it appealing in the long run. Overall, it's watchable if you view 1-2 episodes a week, not something you would watch several episodes of at once. The excitement wears off quick and if you are older, you may not find much interest in the comedy as it comes off aimed at the far younger viewers. It is important to know that what you see in episode 1 & 2 is what you get from 3 - 12, so if you aren't into it then, don't bother with the rest.
