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


Yep, you do get the distinct impression that Oka is a bit tri-sexual - if it is has to do with sex, she wants to try it! LOL!

TRI-sexual? What else is she into that I missed. Shes got a boyfriend, shes somewhat obviously into Urabe, and...?

Glad to hear there will be a second season of MGX. As Zensunni suggested there is ample material left in the manga for future magic. As for tri-sexual, well, I guess you'll just have to read the manga....

Whoa, there! Where did you hear that there will be a second season? If you mean comments in this arc, those were wishes for a 2nd season, not anything definitive. If you heaad from somewhere else, please share your source! I would soooo love to hear that!

I really enjoy this series. It's my current favorite. Urabe is a tease but she could be doing it incoherently. I still tremble when droll is exchanged. Can't wait to see the ending.

Ooooops,I meant "drool",,,,! In EP, 8 It was interesting how Urabe fondled her boob and transferred the sensation to her boyfriend with the spit. They're getting ready to crank up the ecchi factor finally !

Really awesome series. Just when I think nothings gonna happen or progress further..dead wrong. Ep 8 example..boob grabbing and ear licking?? Didnt expect that. By chance is the manga just as good for anyone who is reading it? Think I might pick it up.

I enjoy it.

I think Zensunni said it best:


I absolutely love the way the director is adapting the manga! He is taking a great slice-of-life manga, putting it into a coherent order, and providing continuity to the plot.

For those that haven't read it, the manga has serious issues with seasonal stories that defy rationality, while having an overarching story that needs continuity in terms of the order of the stories. I was really worried that the anime would be all over the place because of that, but this director is doing it extremely well!

Yes! The manga is just as good. So far, the anime has been extremely faithful to the manga, with only a few additions and very few chapters skipped. What it has done, is switch around the order of some of the purely slice-of-life manga chapters to make a more coherent time-line and to improve the story. (For instance, the two major events in episode 7, the athletic festival and Tsubaki getting sick, are from two totally unconnected chapters in the manga . (Chapter 17: Mysterious Athletic Festival and Chapter 10: Mysterious Wonder Drug) By putting the content of Chapter 10 in the middle of the Athletic Festival story, they had enough material to make a full episode and were able to tell a better story, giving Urabe more of a reason to want Tsubaki to recover from his cold faster than normal. (So he could watch her run in the Athletic Festival. Sure, she acts like she doesn't care about that kind of stuff, but she still wants her boyfriend to see how awesome she is!)

This was a masterwork of adaptation! Taking the content of the manga and massaging it into an even better story than the mangaka wrote!

I highly suggest reading the manga, but at this point, I would wait until the end of the season. [SHAMELESS PLUG]If you are interested in how the episodes relate to the chapters, I am logging it on the "Mysterious Girlfriend X Anime" club over at MyAnimeList. (I am also the creator of the club, and we do have some cool GIFs from the episodes and stuff like that too...) [/SHAMELESS PLUG]

Awesome ya I think I will wait then because there is no way I want to ruin this show really into it. Would you say the manga is better then the anime? One thing I like about this series is how odd it is as far as the characters and the plot

I wouldn't say that the manga is better than the anime. At this point, they are about equal, but if I had to pick one over the other, I might pick the anime, because of some of the subtle details that the anime has that are not in the manga. (The best example I can think of is when the shot pans down to Urabe's legs while Tsubaki is licking her ear and shows her knees buckling:

This is a tiny detail, but it let's the viewer know precisely what Urabe is feeling as her boyfriend licks her ear. That is not shown in the manga. Of course, it is really hard to show a subtle movement like that in manga form. Multiple panels of her legs would seem a bit odd.)
The other thing the anime has going for it over the manga is Ayako Yoshitani! Her voice is so perfect for the character of Urabe it is almost criminal!

Interestingly, when the anime adaptation was announced in the manga, Ueshiba-sensei wrote:

I wonder just how the panty-scissors will look once they are animated? They look great in just still images, so once they're moving they will be unbelievable! Just what kind of scene will play out once they've added sound and color and movement to the City of Dreams? I'll be waiting with 300% anticipation for the broadcast!

I don't want the viewers to say the anime version of "MGX" is more interesting than the creator's original manga, so I'll be doing my best with the serialized story!

I would have to say he was spot on about the panty-scissors, and the city of dreams is amazing! I just hope he keeps up his end of the bargain and keeps the manga up to the level of excellence it has set for itself and the anime is setting!

I still think the people who were freaking out about the spit swapping was sensationalist and troll-bait for the most part. Why do you think youre doing when you kiss someone (and I dont mean kiss on the cheek)? At least its just spit and not... liquids from down below after sex.
