[Mysterious Girlfriend X Episode 12]

All good things must come to and end. While it was great that this manga was animated, it is sad to see it go. The directing on this show has done a great job of making the romance between Urabe and Tsubaki so enjoyable, as they learn about each other, explore each other’s feelings, and fumble things up from time to time. So on with the finale.

Until now, the series has completely ignored both families. We’ve met Tsubaki’s sister, and made reference to Urabe’s dad, but the parents have never been met. Having your parents meet your significant other can be a nerve racking experience. But leave it to Urabe to find a creative way to meet the Tsubaki’s parents. When she runs into Tsubaki’s sister, it’s an opportunity she can’t pass up. Fortunately, the situation turns into some girl bonding time. Tsubaki’s sister is so great, being some a great substitute mother. You can tell that Urabe has respect for her, and it’s cute. But it make’s Urabe wonder where their Mom is.Nazo no Kanojo Mysterious Girlfriend X Urabe and Tsubaki Sister

When Tsubaki explains that his mom is dead, Urabe asks to go visit the grave. I’m not sure how they think of this in Japan, but it seems like a odd way to go about a date. Urabe even puts on her pretty, but parent friendly clothes to impress his mom. It’s very sweet and heartfelt, and catches Tsubaki off guard. And at the grave site, Urabe offer’s her best dish. To me, this moment is almost like a wife visiting her mother-in-law. There is a sense of commitment from Urabe to be in this for the long run.Nazo no Kanojo Mysterious Girlfriend X Urabe Saying Prayer

And to finish their visit off, as the two of them are standing there, a beautiful moment happens. Not a kiss, but a mutual exchange of drool, where each others thoughts at that moment are exchanged. It’s a great moment for the two of them, something that the director created that isn’t the manga. And when Tsubaki asks if that was inappropriate, Urabe’s cutely responds that that is only the beginning of the inappropriate things to come.Nazo no Kanojo Mysterious Girlfriend X Urabe Tsubaki Share Drool

This show has been great. It has had people loving it, hating it, and everything in between. As an avid fan of the manga, I was proud to see the director not only stay true to the story, but even improve things with little details here and there. If you haven’t already, I would encourage to read the manga, it goes quickly, and is well worth it. I would rate this anime with an “Approval” rating, on a scale of “”Approval, Ambivalence, and Disapproval”

    Agreed, great way to end a great series.

    Question: The manga is still ongoing, isn’t it?
    Question 2: About what percent of the manga was covered in the anime?

    itwas strange and endearing. different enough to keep my attention but familiar enough to be something i’d watch. I will have to pick up the manga and read it while someone comes to their senses and puts out another season. I want more :)

      The manga is definitely a good read. While the anime follows the manga, it does not follow it in order, while mixing different chapters together. There are some great arcs, that are hinted at in the anime, that a great read in the manga. Tktranslate does a great job each month getting out a good scanlation. Check them out!

      • do you by any chance know if there’s a torrent or something of all the tktranslate mysterious girlfriend x releases? I want to read from the beginning on my ipad

        • JoeAnimated says:

          I think I have almost every one downloaded already. I can look at doing something. as an FYI, WRL will be closing up (see the main page). I’ve ported this post over to my new blog (animeaudiolog.wordpress.com). We can continue the discussion there.
