[blue]Hmmmm.......The entire time I have watched this they seem to imply that she is an alien. Then the drool thing makes some sense.

I have high hopes for a 2nd season, though that is only a personal hope at this point. I have heard nothing about the shows reception in Japan or sales figures on the BDs/DVDs (if they have been released... Anybody know?)

There is more than enough material for a 2nd season in the manga, that is for sure!

Episode 8 was superb! Very faithful to the manga, but more intense it seems, with the actual sounds and little touches like the way Urabe's knees buckle when he licks her ear:

when Oka tells her about falling in love changing her senses:

and when Tsubaki pinches her ear at her request:


It really made the idea of what that "sensation she had never felt before" that she was talking about with Oka very clear! I believe that sensation is centered somewhere directly south of the navel and north of the knees and the watering of her eyes is being used as an analogy for ... something else...

The voice acting prowess of Ayako Yoshitani is on full display in this episode. The sound of her voice as the ear licking incident is occuring; her breathing and sub vocalizations in various points of the episode; and the slight lilt in her voice when she tells Tsubaki that she doesn't need to appologize for the fact that he has "changed her senses" (saying "I don't mind this sensation. In fact, I find it..."); they all are extremely well done! Notice that she doesn't tell Tsubaki exactly what she feels about this new sensation, but her tone of voice certainly tells him, and us, that she finds that sensation extremely enjoyable!

All i can say is bravo for this series for taking an old trope and making something so bizarre/fun to watch. It is premature from my early review but I can say that the series overall is a solid 4/5. Don't hate on because of this the drool aspect keeps it from becoming perfect due to the threshold that a few will not be able to overcome.

Well, if 2chan is any indication of an anime's popularity in Japan, then I think MGX is somewhat popular. Ive been seeing fan art pop up on there fairly regularly. I hope theres a second season to this.

Its such a refreshing if screwy take on an old trope.

I had heard that the full OP wasn't coming out until summer, possibly with one of the DVD/BR releases hpulley mentioned, now that I think of it.

If you are interested in a series that honestly and openly explores the emotional roller-coaster of young love in an atmosphere that is offbeat, slightly kinky, yet, at the same time, remarkably sweet, MGX would be a good thing to watch.

If you like extremely detailed backgrounds, old school art, and light eechii content, MGX would be a good thing to watch.

If you like romance stories but are tired of shows that tell them in the exact same way, with the exact same characters, doing the exact same things, MGX would be a good thing to watch.

If you are interested in seeing a show that is one of the most talked about shows of the season, is highly regarded by many, often despite the fact that the initial 'hook' of the show is somewhat ... off-putting, and is generally hailed as being one of the most unique and original shows to come out in a long while, even by people who lack the intestinal fortitude to watch it due to the "drool factor", MGX would be a good thing to watch.

If you are interested in seeing one of the best female lead characters ever written for anime or manga, MGX would be a good thing to watch.

If you think that "drool is soooooo icky" that just thinking about it makes you want to, "like, totally barf!"*, don't like shows that have eechii content, even if it is very tame, or can't stand romantic anime in the first place, MGX is probably not for you.

I personally think it is the best show of the season, with Kids on the Slope coming in a very, very close 2nd.

[*] Yes, those quoted sections in that should be read with a valley girl accent

MGX is a really cute and sweet anime, if you can get past the boy eating the girls spit, then you will I think, love it. It's slight on the kinky side and theres definitely a yuri undertone between Oka and Urabe... if only one sided on Oka's part. lol

If you can get past your initial reaction to the drool it's a wonderful series filled with some amazing imagery and metaphor and a really entertaining story.

it's just leaping over that first hurdle that causes some problems for some folks.



like people who had a problem with naked baby in Beelzebub. Once you get past that you can just enjoy the show.
