Seems they took out the scissors thing from the manga, which I'm fine with...thought it was a lame gag anyway that only works kind of awkwardly in manga form, in anime form, it be too out of place.

unless it does show up later...

If I remember correctly she doesn't do that major drool spill often in the manga (I actually forgot she could do that...)

It only once that she did it, which is good because then it'll be too much of a running gag. However, the saliva will be used in different and interesting ways.

Finally got around to watching the first episode.

Since I've read some of the manga, none of what happened was surprising. I think they did an excellent job with the art direction and character design. The whole drool thing is still strange, but that's not the only thing this show has going for it.

I was really surprised, however by the VA of Urabe. It fit the odd character perfectly. The roughness of the replies to the classmate's attempts at casual conversation, the confidence, and amusement to her voice after the laughing fits. For me, Ayako Yoshitani worked well as her voice. She did not sound like a typical anime voice, and that fit so well for such a mysterious girlfriend.

I give you, the drool alliance:

Alright, I'm putting my foot down. All of you complaining about the drool, for those of you who have lovers, when you kiss your partner passionately, aren't you technically doing the same thing? Urabe and Tsubaki are technically doing the same thing only more of a direct approach. In fact, I think the whole drool sucking with the fingers is technically more hygienic. So get your asses out of your plastic bubbles there germophobes and embrace the weirdness.

It's all about context.

For instance, my mouth is filled with saliva at all times. Yet I wouldn't spit on a plate of spaghetti and then slurp it up. That I'd find nauseating. Generally when something has left the mouth, I don't fancy putting it back in, be that drool, a half-chewed piece of food etc.

Germophobia doesn't even enter into it for me, it's just gross on a visceral level.

I thought so too. Then again, I don't speak Japanese, so I'm not able to pick up on the subtleties in her acting that well. She was sort of emotionless, but I found that fit the character's obvious weirdness well.

Very retro look, but otherwise quite interesting, the girl's voice especially is really refreshing

Another thing I liked about the episode, did anyone else get that, Hayao Miyazaki Spirited Away vibe from Tsubaki's dream? or was it just me?

I'd call it the most direct indirect kiss you could have, if that makes any sense.

Not really, there's a lot of germs on one's finger's, as opposed to getting it from the... direct source?

There's more bacteria growing in your mouth than the underside of your foot or between your ass cheeks.

That's why proper dental hygiene is important in romantic relationships.

Exactly my thoughts. Her VA is debuting and sounds different from the usual, so that alone gives the character a welcome uniqueness already.

First episode was quite intriguing. It's not my usual kind of anime, but the mood and art style got me hooked. I want to see where this goes.
