A little weird at first, but ultimately worth watching

I think this show is pretty great. Yes the whole drool thing is really weird (let me fill you in if you don't know what I'm talking about. Basically, our main character, Tsubaki, decides to taste his classmate's (Urabe), drool after he sees it on her desk after school. He ends up becoming addicted to her drool and the two begin a relationship.) , but if you can get past that, you'll have a rather good show on your hands. It's nice to see something unique with a little originality. It isn't a very stereotypical and lazy romance anime. The whole drool aspect, as weird as it is, does bring something new to the table. That being said, there is one major issue with this show. Tsubaki's and Urabe's relationship moves very, very slow. Infuriatingly slow actually. So infuriating that at the end of the show you will most likely be screaming "THAT"S IT!?". I wish there would have been more episodes so we could have seen this relationship grow. I would have no problem with this relationship going as slow as it did, but with only 13 episodes, their relationship doesn't go that far at all. Besides that, I'd say this show is certainly worth watching. Just try to get past the drool thing and don't expect their relationship to move very quickly.
