Mysterious Girlfriend X Blu-ray
About Mysterious Girlfriend X Blu-ray
Mysterious Girlfriend X complete collection contains episodes 1-13 of the anime directed by Ayumu Watanabe.
When the oddly peculiar Mikoto Urabe transfers into Akira Tsubaki's class, he finds that life has thrown him the weirdest curve ball ever. While Urabe may be an anti-social loner who sleeps on her desk, carries a pair of scissors in her underwear, and breaks out in sudden fits of insane laughter, there's something about her that Tsubaki just can't quite put his finger on. ...Until he accidentally puts his finger in it, and suddenly the phrase "sharing spit with a girl" takes on an entirely new meaning!
Before he can wipe her drool off his face, Tsubaki is mysteriously addicted to Urabe, which isn't half as strange as the fact that she not only finds this normal, but already seems to have plans for her new drooling boyfriend. So, can a girl spitting in your face ever be a GOOD thing? Is this relationship bound for disaster or great expectorations? Find out as Urabe puts a spittle love in Tsubaki's heart and things get REALLY bizarre!

Ratings & Reviews
Fantastic anime, vocal delivery superb!
I bought the Blu-ray at Anime Boston, if you're wondering how I could review it before its official release. The cast is wonderful, the delivery of their lines makes the scenes ten times better than the manga (which you should also check out). There is a lot of innuendo, not said by the characters, but by the imagery. The music fits perfectly and the sound effects are well done. It's a comedy, but also a romance, the main characters can never really hide their feelings due to the bond they share.
Tsubaki has unbidden dreams about Urabe (and yes they are all sexual in nature), whether Urabe has the same, you'll have to watch to find out. Oh, and the first couple episodes will shock you, then you'll laugh, shake your head, and keep watching.
I can't stop myself from watching this over and over.
Fantastic show! Haha really hoping the price goes down to own it.
Although the idea of a show being centered around two teenagers exchanging spit into each others mouth can seem absurd and ridiculous... This show actually passes as one of the funnest and most entertaining love stories I have ever seen! Haha this show displays the struggles we face as teenagers to express ourselves in its own strange and hilarious way :) should you watch? Definitely! If you're not new to Anime and if you're open minded :)
Great animation and storyline
At first, I was a little put off a bit with the whole swapping of spit thing. As the story progressed I found myself really into the characters of Tsubaki and Urabe. Overall, like it says in my title, the artwork was impressive and the story was on point. This anime really deserves a second season, due to the fact I have read the manga and there is so much more content for this and adds more depth to the story. The only thing I have a problem with is that it does not include the OVA, granted it's only one episode, but it is a good one.

We all know everything there is to know about romance, don't we? Well sometimes it takes a shock to push aside our perceptions and make us reexamine the obvious. Mysterious Girlfriend X did just that by twisting an aspect of the evolution of teen romance and forcing me to starkly relive the pain, confusion, trials, and joy of falling in love and developing a relationship. This is definitely an anime to drool over!
One of the weirdest shows I've seen
by C.M. -
It's a show about sucking on drool. That's right. It was kind of hard to watch the first episode or two because of this, but once I got used to it, it turned out to be a great show. The dub was perfect. Something about the art style and the dub voices go really well together. If you can get past the whole drool thing, you'll love this show.
Worth the watch!

Based on the previous reviews, I went in to this expecting it to be different and strange.
When he 1st sees her drool and then dips his finger into it and then tastes it, I was wondering, what am I watching. Like everyone else has said once you get past that it is a wonderfully great series. Haven't read the manga yet, but from the best I can tell, this is based on the 1st 3 issues. The characters are great the story is great, their relationship does progress slowly, but there is still more to the story, hopefully we will get a season 2!!!
If you like pathetic male leads, this one is for you
by Wolf -
If you are anything like me, you're expecting something zany and otherworldly, with some interesting scissor choreography, and a bit of romance. What you get is the story of possibly the most pathetic male protagonist in anime ever (Akira) who attracts the attention of a cool, eccentric girl (Mikoto) by being a pervert and has to endure the sexual tension brought on by obeying her arbitrary rules regarding physical contact. I have never seen a portrayal of someone less deserving of another character's attention. There is no romance, because Akira does nothing besides display a desire for physicality and Mikoto says in the beginning that they are destined for sex, just not yet. There is very little action with Mikoto's ability with scissors. There is no interesting explanation regarding the spit swapping. It all just seems like a boring/awkward metaphor for sexual desire and restraint. Animation and character design are great. Disc/features average. Story/characters are awful.

This anime is strange, yet it makes you want to watch through the interactions between the two main characters. The art style reminds me of older anime but with a fresh layer of paint and flash. This series contains all of the episodes in the original release.
