Synopsis: A beautiful girl named Guri, who has a mysterious item that forces two random people to kiss and turns them into couples, appears in front high school student, Aino Seiji. Despite being dressed up as a shinigami, she’s actually cupid. Suddenly, Guri tries to kiss Seiji, and then… Unavoidable and uncontrollable–A forceful love comedy that starts with an angel and a kiss!! – Crunchyroll

I really have no clue what I want to say about this one. What the heck did I just watch? So, it seems that there is this item called the “Kiss Note”, any two peoples name written in it will kiss within 24 hours. Not only that but it seems they’re also destined to be together after that. This whole episode was interesting because of course they are setting up for the series and giving you background information that you need but man, they throw a whole lot at you in this short amount of time that it’s just leaves you scratching your head saying “WTF did I just watch?”

Guri is a Cupid who likes to cosplay as a Shinigami. She is a special one, just writing names in the Kiss Note, especially if they are two guys. She really like the Yaoi and Yuri scene. It’s really comical how everything plays out. Aino Seiji, has no clue what’s really going on and when Guri explains the workings of the Kiss Note she really doesn’t do it all that well. Hiyama Akane is the popular girl who Aino has liked for a while, though she is really obsessive and psychotic, if you ask me. You don’t want to be in her way because she is very likely to stab you with her two swords. Yeah, seriously. These three end up in a love triangle and it all just goes crazy from there.

While this episode was super crazy, I want to see how this all works out because of all the craziness. I’ll be following this one just to see what more crazy they can stuff into it, I have a feeling it’s going to be a doozy.
