Nazo no Kanojo X AKA Mysterious Girlfriend X Reveiw

YOISH! Hello everyone madarame here to share with you a comedy/drama series that just came out last month called Mysterious Girlfriend X sponsored by King Records!

The series follows the relationship of Akira Tsubaki and Mikoto Urabe. Mikoto is a transfer student who recently came to Alira’s school. After a series of strange events, Akira finds himself addicted to Mikoto’s drool. Once she claims the addiction as love sickness, the relationship slowly progresses, focusing on the odd bond that comes out of the drool attachment.Gives new meaning of swapping spit eh?

Akira Tsubaki (椿 明 Tsubaki Akira?) Voiced by: Miyu Irino The main male protagonist, Akira is an average boy by most standards. He lives with his sister and his father. His mother having since passed away when he was very young, put his sister to fulfill the motherly role instead. When Mikoto transfers into his class, he is initially intrigued by her, particularly after one outburst of her hysterically laughing. After school one day, he wakes Mikoto up from her desk, only to find a puddle of drool left behind. Absent-mindedly, he takes some on his finger and tastes it. Shortly afterwards, he falls ill. When Mikoto visits him, she claims that he is suffering from “love-sickness”, which he most likely got from tasting her drool. From there, the relationship begins, and akira quickly asks Mikoto to be his girlfriend. Although she accepts, he continually feels that there is too much distance between them. Although they rarely have any physical contact, the two begin a ritual where akira tastes a bit of Mikoto’s drool each day. The drool can transmit feelings, among other things, between the two of them. akira is not very aggressive in his pursuit of furthering his relationship with mikoto, slightly due to his fear of Mikoto’s scissors. He constantly compares his relationship to Kouhei’s and oka’s, and will occasionally try to emulate them. He develops a taste for girls who look like Mikoto, as evidenced by his collection of Mikoto look-alike Japanese idol Imai Momoka’s photos.

Bah, I think the whole thing with the photo’s is a bit over-exaggerated, although I have only watched up to the latest Ep. #5 of 12 so, maybe it shows up in 7 or 8? but watching the whole relationship progress and how it happens through the past 5 Episodes are quite funny and progressive. I’ve been noticing the season jumps from winter to spring and coming into summer. I’m thinking 6 will fall at the end of summer vacation and just in time for the fall festivals for the schools. I can’t wait to see how fall and then winter show up to the full circle then. Akira is a down to earth type of kid, but a kid nonetheless this trek to manhood is more of a comical run you’d see in ranma 1/2 or maison ikkoku, it does have a Rumiko Taki feel to it.

Mikoto Urabe 卜部 美琴 Urabe Mikoto Voiced by: Ayako Yoshitani Mikoto is the humorous Mysterious Girlfriend X of this series. Not much is known about her, as akira’s occasional visits to her apartments have never shown her parents to be around. She initially transfers to akirai’s school and gives off an unsocial air, refusing to eat lunch with her classmates in order to sleep. One day, she breaks out in hysterical laughter during class, falling to the ground. When later telling akira about it, she reveals to him that she heard a voice saying that he would be her very first intimate partner. Mikoto is very knowledgeable about the bond of drool that she and akira share. She displays her feeling through her drool, as her face is generally hidden behind her bangs. She has been shown to see akira’s dreams through his drool, as well as use her own drool to cause him to have certain dreams. As the series progresses, she makes friends with Ayuko Oka, who also happens to share a drool bond with Urabe. Although she generally keeps quiet about her private life, she has been shown to be very sincere to her boyfriend, akira. Among her many other quirks, Mikoto is notable for her skill with scissors. The scissors, which she keeps tucked in her panties, can be used to dextrously cut objects at high speed, like making a nearby hedge resemble Akira. The scissors are used as threats, displays of anger, and as a defensive measure. This is but one of the factors that keeps akira from being more forward and aggressive with their relationship, although he seems to be generally fine with following mikoto’s pace.

I find the whole Scissors schtick to be absolute hilarity (No spoliers). getting past the whole suck my drool fetish (Which it is!) its a pretty cool comical romance drama between 1st year high school students/friends. Pretty much a day to day with comical situations thrown in here and there.

Ayuko Oka  丘 歩子 Oka Ayuko Voiced by: Ryō Hirohashi Oka is Kouhei’s girlfriend and mikoto’s eventual friend. She was first introduced when Akira walked into his homeroom to see her and Kouhei kissing together. She is rather short 143cm tall, yet she has a body which resembles a model, which she seems to enjoy on occasion when she dresses her favorite clothes out of her boyfriend’s permission. After she sees the drool-tasting ritual between Akira and Mikoto, she befriends Mikoto, and it’s revealed that they share a drool bond as well. Oka is portrayed as slightly lecherous, given by her positive reaction to peeking down Mikoto’s blouse. She views her relationship with Kouhei almost as a competition with Mikoto and Akira.

Yea the whole connection thing between Oka & Mikoto in Ep.5 how it comes about and how it turns out is up to you to find out. Although between you me and the net, its funny finding out.

Kouhei Ueno (上野 公平 Ueno Kōhei?) Voiced by: Yūki Kaji Kouhei is Tsubaki’s friend and Oka’s boyfriend. When Tsubaki first walked in on him and Oka kissing, Kouhei asked him to keep their relationship a secret, as he is rather shy about it. He helps Akira by providing advice about relationships. Kouhei is shown to be very jealous of Oka, and doesn’t like the idea of taking her to the beach. He also tries to keep some control by dressing her more conservative in order to avoid other boys from seeing her.

He’s Akira’s best friend but even he’s a bit dense when it truly comes to women. You’ll realize this once you get into the series. but he is a true friend and does attempt to help akira out with his relationship with Mikoto.

Youko Tsubaki 椿 陽子 Tsubaki Yōko Voiced by: Misato Fukuen Akira’s elder sister. She considers it her duty to raise her brother properly since the passing of their mother, she refuses to consider marriage until Akira graduates and finds a job. She spends her day house cleaning, cooking, anddoing laundry. Akira’s occasional strange behavior from the effects of Mikoto’s saliva sometimes makes Youko worry about her brother. Youko has met Mikoto, but has not been told of the full extent of her relationship with Akira. Mikoto said she was only a classmate akira helps often at school, though some dialogue suggests she knows the truth.

I will give a thumbs up to her actions and duty as the oldr sibling and taking on the role of both sister & mother since their mother’s passing away. Their father so far hasn’t been seen in the series as of yet and I don’t know if we’ll see him in the Ep.’s but we’ll just have to keep watching to find out. I LIKE this series and give a ******** out of 10 Stars on humor and relatioships and just being a akwardly funny series.

      • I think there is a very fine line between warped sense of humor and liking a show where the concept is gallons of spit gushing from some girl you like??? Well Amanda told me this was good, so Ill give it 2 episodes and see what I think about it, but I dont expect it to be a warm welcome.
