My favorite page is chapter 61, page 15. To me, it was among the few times that Tsubaki himself showed some kind of psychic power, when its usually Urabe that has a higher affinity towards psychic phenomenon, especially in the last chapter when she revealed the vision she had of Tsubaki's past. Nevertheless, Tsubaki unconsciously used some kind of power to make Urabe feel better.

Here the drawing I made that is a representation of that page.


EDIT:

Mysterious girlfriend is up there among the greatest romantic stories I ever read, which includes the really great manga Love Roma.

And just to show the process, here's the sketch before it got inked:

I love both manga's so much and it was hard to decide which one to draw a page for! Both manga artists (Keishi Nishikida, Riichi Ueshiba) are big inspirations for me in one day becoming a manga artist too!

Chapter 0 Page 22! I love this scene because it's how the story starts! If Tsubaki never tasted Urabe's drool, they never would've really developed the bond that they share (metaphorically and literally) haha.

I'm really sorry that I did not ink it but I was running out of time and thought "Hey, pencil is so much easier and quicker!" But I was wrong haha

Thank you so much for this contest! I really appreciate the opportunity to win these truly astonishing, dream come true prizes!!

chapter 88 pg. 19
In this scene Urabe realizes that she has to dress in such cloths as a towel to get Tsubaki to blush for her. This is after he take up Urabe's offer for a sip of her drink, then finishes it. This scene shows how much there relationship has actually grown, and is just a good scene for Urabe...

I became a big fan of My Wife is Wagatsuma-san when I started reading it around summer time. I had just gotten an all-access membership to CR and I was browsing the manga that was available. I was interested by the premise of the story and ended up reading all of the chapters that were available within a week. The many characters that were in the story were very easy to relate to and I found myself loving all of them. As sad as it is to see the series end, I'm glad that the ride to its conclusion was very fun.

Anyway, my favorite page is page 11 from chapter 72 - The Power of Love. Throughout the entire series, Aoshima is trying his best to become closer to Wagatsuma. In this page, all of Aoshima's hard work finally pulled off as Wagatsuma agreed to go out with him. I just felt very happy reading this chapter when Aoshima was able to get the girl he loved.



Here's the picture before I colored it in.



Best of luck to all the competitors!

Funny thing about my favorite page is that the poster in the background is a reference to a photo I once saw years ago of two guys holding an aliens hands. Did anybody else recognize any of the paranormal references in the manga?



In the next page, you can see on Urabe's shirt, it says "MOTH MAN" and has a picture of the entity.

When I was a kid, I was in West Virginia for a few days, miles away from the area where the series of sightings happened decades ago. This makes the page all the more awesome.



Whats scary, is that native americans have artifacts that are hundred of years old, shaped like mothman.

The author is really well versed in the paranormal. That was another reason why I liked reading Mysterious Girlfriend X, lots of awesome paranormal references in it. I wonder how many people where able to spot them?

Moth man info here for those that don't know: http://www.boudillion.com/Moth/mothman.html

If there's a sequel, I wonder if Tsubaki and Urabe become paranormal investigators, search for the unknown, or find aliens? Or perhaps they live out there days peacefully as normal adults, with the only mysterious things being the strange happenings and psychic phenomenon that occur in their relationship?

My Wife is Wagatsuma-san.
Chapter 48.
Page 3.
I remember when Crunchyroll Manga became a thing, this series was my go to.
For my representation: I picked my favorite page of my favorite chapter of my favorite CR manga.
Ran Itou is my favorite character. She is probably the second most important female character in the series, and I also think she is the most dynamic character. From her introduction to the end, her personality and appearance change more than most of the others.

This girl becomes smitten with the unpopular Aoshima, an idea that is somewhat foreign to him. Potentially, a relationship with her would last ten more years than one with Wagatsuma. However, as I just have watched HIMYM, and it was the episode where Ted and Barney want to adopt a baby together (season 7, episode 11), I have learned from a lesson at the end of that episode, that the one you're going to marry is worth the wait. Similarly, Aoshima must work harder and wait longer for the one he loves. Ran Itou is a hurdle that Aoshima must face and overcome more than once, and I seriously applaud him for it. I know if I were him, this would be the last arc in the story. True Story.

On a much shallower note, in my opinion, she is much cuter and funnier than the other heroines.



For those who don't like the coloring:

I really enjoyed reading My Wife is Wagatsuma and atleast it ending on a good note. Hopefully it will become an anime. Seems like it would be fun to watch as it was to read the manga.
