**Spoiler Warnings**

As of right now (episode 13) I'm dropping this. I can't stand how this show makes me feel. It's driving me insane.
When I first started this, I thought this show was so cute and I thought the MC was so quirky but quickly that turned into pure overreacting annoyance. 
As a shy person, we may be meek but nowhere do we flail about when we are startled or scared. I hated how anytime something happened, she would jerk her arms around like someone just tazed her or something. 

I thought that would be the worst of it, but no... she has to chase the one person -- the ONE PERSON -- who doesn't give a crap about her. Everyone around her loves her and treats her so much better than he does. I literally do not understand why the hell she is so gaga over him. 

Now at episode 13 we have a new character - why? No idea. More over the top drama?  She popped up and instantly it's one of those "oh here the fuck we go. *eye roll*" moments. 

I really will say I stuck around as long as I did for Dori Sakurada. Say what you will, but I love that man. He makes every show he is on imo. Maybe I'm just biased.. maybe not. Doesn't take away from the fact that this show drove me nuts. 

I really tried to stick it out. I tried. But I can't anymore. I feel like screaming at my screen the whole time. Will I come back to this? Maybe someday, but not right now. Plus, I'm 99.9% sure I know how this will end. So i'm sure I won't be missing out on anything. 

UPDATE 2/22/21:
Oh holy hell was fuckery was that bullshit? I hate season 1 so much. All through this show FL is "in love" with the ML who couldn't give a damn about her. All through this show he literally treats her like shit on his shoes. Why would you treat your girlfriend that way? No, really. Tell me. Because any time he is around ANY OTHER FEMALE he is so sweet to them. I wish I was kidding, but nope. He is sweet ,talks to them like they are friends and doesn't mind being around them.. Meanwhile, Nao gets the cold shoulder all the time and brushed off. Everyone that meets her instantly loves her, and just look at all the guys that want to be with her, yet she wants to stay with Uehara. WHY?! I honestly don't understand! Make it make sense! She even say he is sweet to her and blah blah blah.... bitch, where?! Because he looks at you and has rare fleeting moments where he makes you smile BECAUSE OF WHAT HE DOES IN YOUR THOUGHTS?!? Literally.... only in your thoughts is he ever actually a caring boyfriend. He man reminds me of a gaslighting narcissist. And I can't get over when he was with that other girl and saw the milk pudding and said "I know someone who loves that stuff like crazy" --- I'm sorry, would it break you in half to say "girlfriend"? Especially when you're with another girl?
Just a few other parts that just drive me up the wall:

-S1E14; 24:28(?) "I guess our future together doesn't look good."
You, sir..... are a mighty BITCHY BLOODY CUNT!!

-"Being with you is really exhausting"
Ex-fucking-cuse me!?
-"I don't trust myself. I don't know if I can trust behave if we sleep in the same room."
You literally just told her she was exhausting to be around then say that shit? Y'all have slept in the same room before?! THE FUCK!? SHE'S SCARED, YOU JERK!!!
-"Don't worry, I'm not interested in anyone but you right now"
Are you... are you fucking joking right now? Is he joking? Is that supposed to be some kind of compliment? *beats head against keyboard* kdhfkdasuhfsdkhufvds UGGGGHHHH!!!!!!

Just so much is wrong with this show that it makes me want to scream myself raw. And before anyone asks why I kept watching, oh yeah... I pulled one of *THOSE* people. I watched it purely for Daichi Shinozaki. 
Don't hate. The man is amazing and dhwdiufhwiufhewiuf I love him. So I want to support him. Don't act like you haven't done it before. 

Now, the ultimate question, will I watch season two? I swore I wouldn't but I cheated and looked up how season 2 goes and from what I saw.... *chefs kiss* I just might actually watch it to see if that shit show really happens. If not, I'll just drop it .... again. lol

Also, yes, it ended exactly how I knew it would. No surprise there. 

If you have made it this far through the rant, thank you. While I hate this show with a passion, I love all of the actors. Don't mistake my hate for the show as hate to the actors, I don't hate them and I think the actors themselves all did a really amazing job and I give them hella props for that because I'm sure this show wasn't the easiest. Lol So please know I support the actors and staff. I just hate the story itself. lol
