Nazo No Kanojo X (Mysterious Girlfriend X)
Posted 6/10/11
Not a very popular manga, but currently my favourite without a shadow of a doubt
Nazo No Kanojo X (Mysterious Girlfriend X) by Riichi Ueshiba, its about the complicated relationship of the high school couple Tsubaki and Urabe.
I find that the manga covers very adult topics of relationships, such as fantasies of your partner, without using any explicit dialogue or imagery, but using metaphors that when looked at directly just look rather silly and childish, but can be interpreted in many ways relevant to the real world

I was wondering if there are any other fans, as there doesn't seem to be any forums for the manga, and I don't know anyone else who reads it. If there are, please share your favourite moments from the manga, and well anything you want to say about it

I am a big fan! There is a group over at MAL that discuss it, but it has been pretty quiet lately. The movie arc was starting to get on my nerves, but I liked the way it ended. Now I just want more!!!! (and more anime from it...)

The Japanese is really easy to understand, vocab is pretty similar in most chapters if you want to read the original text.

Yes, MAL overall seems more active so I have started posting there too.

I pray for a second season or a bunch more OVAs at least. The Imai Momoka arc would be awesome as anime, good opportunity for music too. The movie would be good too.

Unfortunately, as much as I would wish otherwise, its just too expensive to order everything I really want from Japan. I'm going to have to wait for most of this stuff to be licensed.

I find most times the price including shipping is the same. Most manga is ¥400-600 per volume and in large enough orders shipping is less than that. About $8-12 each, same price as Viz assuming free shipping or local store. Not more expensive and I don't have to wait months or years for it to be translated, if it gets licensed at all. I still spend too much on it but I gotta have it!

Most people read scanlations So far I have found one more person on MAL who buys and reads Japanese manga like me. I don't know how those shady websites survive...

Yes, I too was waiting for movie arc to end but I'm glad it happened. There were a lot of sweet moments in it. I'm glad that Chapter 71 went back to its roots though.

I love it! But I showed my close-minded heartless mother the manga and she TRIED to block it on my computer. Said it was vulger and then vomited, but if anyone should read it it's her.

I couldn't wait for the tenth book, I bought Afternoon magazine October, November and December 2012 with chapters 69-71 and January 2013 with 72 just shipped, should have it in a day or two. Absolutely love this manga. Some other good stuff in the telephone book sized Afternoon too!

I will still buy the tenth volume when it comes out, I hope they are making another OVA too, perhaps just dreaming...

Manga and anime. Love both! The drool thing you get used to quickly, it is a unique part of this story which is really quite sweet if you follow it. Too bad some are put off by it.
