Uzaki-chan (abbrev.) is a unique twist on what you would typically consider an 'ecchi'. Writer of the manga — Take — focused primarily on the comedy aspect and added healthy portions of romance. The only ecchi in the entire show is that Uzaki seems to have two small planets attached to her torso and given her height, 4'11 (150cm) it can be rather alarming at first. Keep your eyes peeled, the words within the brackets [ ], not parentheses ( ) will spell out a surprise; post it in the comments if you spot it.

Synopsis/Summary: Sakurai is an atypical college student. He likes to exercise alone, play sports alone, play video games alone, go to the movies alone and even works in a quiet little café where he feels at peace. [You're] Over-all, he's a nice person, albeit a little socially awkward and gloomy looking. He finds great comfort in renting his own apartment where he can be alone.
Sakurai's days of solitude are forcefully brought to an end when his old kouhai (underclassman) from high school, Uzaki arrives at his campus after his first year. Within her first year there, she notices that Sakurai is always alone and so she approaches him during her second year and the sparks begin to fly. Though Sakurai is 6ft. (180cm) tall, an athlete and has a resting mean mug, so most people are naturally intimidated by him.

Uzaki is a hyperactive socialite of a college student who is well-meaning, albeit a tease in every sense of the word. She seems to dislike being alone and is almost always with a (group of) friend(s). She's almost never at home with her Mom, little brother and two cats though, oddly enough.
During her time in college, she makes it a daily activity to jokingly tease Sakurai out of love. She — like Sakurai — is unable to admit her affections and so there's always teasing, [the] competitive tension, hilarious and/or sweet moments between the two. With the uninvited help and guidance of their friends and co-workers Uzaki and Sakurai start to become more familiar and aware of one another.

Sakaki's style of helping them out is the hands-on approach — giving advice, setting up scenarios and asking the uncomfortable questions Uzaki and Sakurai haven't addressed. He's a bit pushy with his approach, but he means well and just wants his friend Sakurai to not regret his college years in solitude.
Ami Asai's approach is more hands-off and she usually only offers advice when asked, otherwise she just enjoys watching the two interact like an old married couple. She's the daughter of Mr. Asai, owner of the café that Sakurai works at as well as his friend and co-worker. Believe it or not, Mr. Asai also enjoys watching Uzaki and Sakurai's romantically frustrated bantering and bickering.
Image: Season 2 is confirmed but not released.
It's theorized that season two will be released between March - September this year, but that's not set in stone. All I can say for now is give this anime a shot. Uzaki might take [winner] some getting used to if you're new to anime, but it's well worth the watch just for their chemistry alone if nothing else.

TL;DR VERSION: At the start of her 1st year in college, Uzaki reunites with Sakurai, an upperclassman who was in the same club as her during her high school. However, the once active senior has ended up becoming a [winner] "loner" student, preferring to spend his free time in quiet peace.
Uzaki does whatever she can to keep Sakurai from being "a loner." While Sakurai finds her irritating and tiresome, he still goes along with Uzaki's hijinks and shenanigans.
Even so, as time passes, their relationship gets better, to the point where people around them misinterpret them to be a couple. At any rate, whenever Uzaki wants to hang out with her upperclassman, fun and adorable wackiness is sure to follow!
I keepgetting folowed by scam link bots. No wonder . only like 5 of my folowers are real people
Me:goes to grab tissue
Me:grabbing the cactus instead
My skin: perfectly fine no needles in it nothing no bleeding no pain
The logic of me accidentally grabbing cactus instead of tissue cactus not hurting me cactus is weak
