Koikimo’s first episode was disappointing to say the least and creepy to say the least. In the first episode, we meet a man named Ryo who nearly dies after being pushed into a train station. A passing high school girl who happens to be his sister’s friend saves him at the last minute. When he sees her again that night, he offers her his body as a reward and she decisively rejects him… which makes him fall in love and actively and creepily pursue her.

Koikimo Episode 2 Where to watch online
You can watch this series exclusively on Crunchyroll.
This series got off to a very difficult start with the first episode. While it tries to play off the romantic angle for laughs, it fails on pretty much every encounter with how the creepy Ryo comes across. He may have good intentions (or not), but that doesn’t stop him from coming off as a complete creeper trying to romanticize and eventually put a high school girl to bed.
With luck, this series will realize just how bad Ryo comes across in each of his interactions with the young girl he’s watching. It doesn’t help that the poor girl is being pressured by both her friend and her mother to accept his affection when she has repeatedly said that his advances are not welcome.
