    Default Nazo no Kanojo X

    One of my favorite manga of all time, Nazo no Kanojo X(Mysterious Girlfriend X in English), by Ueshiba Riichi, is about drool. Yep. Drool.

    Akira Tsubaki, in a daze of passion, happens to taste the drool of Mikoto Urabe, asleep on her desk in school. This leads to a mysterious "illness" that can only be temporarily offset by more of her drool.

    That semi-paranormal element aside, the story follows their simple and developing relationship. NnKX separates itself from similar such series by focusing on the relationship itself; cutting out excessive drama, and keeping to a small cast of characters including Tsubaki's sister, and Ueno and Oka, friends of Tsubaki and Urabe, respectively, who are also in a relationship. The bond between the characters is noted for being realistic in both its nature and its progression, and slightly Natusume Ono-ish in style.

    The series began in 2004 and is published monthly; a one-shot which inspired the full series had been published several months before the series began.



    Primary characters:

    Akira Tsubaki:


    Mikoto Urabe:

    News came out today that the series will be receiving an anime in 2012; no date was given, but it'll likely be a summer series, maybe a spring series.

    I believe huzzahs are in order.

    Going to give this a bump since the anime is airing now.

    The voice actor for Urabe isn't monotone enough...she seems sort of...off. At least the art direction is pretty good; they're mostly sticking to Ureshii's style.

    Though I haven't actually read the manga I watched the first episode of the series last night. seems good especially with the art style but it's gonna take a while for me to get used to the drool. I'll probably continue following it regardless since I don't drop shows though.

    A while back, I read the first 7 volumes from the manga, and yes, it's not easily what one would think. It's actually a reasonably realistic and mature, as well as fun and gradually very addictive series.
    I trust we understand that "mature" means "thoughtful and constructive", not "smutty and delinquent".


    The point in the series is not really fetishizing drool or a "creepy" girl, but like Gjallarhorn said, it focuses on the central relationship (and other relationships) in a somewhat realistic and more interesting way than the average relationship between teenagers you'd see in anime and manga these days. The characters gradually deepen their relationship and explore sexuality, and I can say it has a better example of friendship (Oka) than the typical "POWER OF FRIENDSHIP" series. It also handles the coming pinches in a light-hearted and refreshing (yet very addictive) way; it's not an angst-and-melodrama series. And despite some cliche tropes, everything brings something to the table here.

    Overall, if you can get over a couple superficial things, it's the kind of series that contemplates things and is pretty awesome and addictive, so don't miss it. I highly recommend reading the manga; there are some things I can criticize (I might talk about them in a later post), but it's still easily one of my favorite relationship mangas, despite still being somewhat short and in-progress.

    I didn't watch the anime episode yet, but I'm gonna break my rule of not touching 13-episode seasons until they're over and watch the first episode when I come back home tomorrow or something... at least because they're saying that the sound is great, and there seems to be a new face performing Urabe's voice, which piqued both my curiosity and anxiety. In any case, I reeeaaaally hope they make it as good as the manga for the season.

    Watched the first episode, was a little creeped out at first, but it was, you know, so bizarre that I just wanted to see what the heck else happens to this guy and this girl in the future, and I thought that I gotta read the manga, so that's what I'm doing now.
