ANIME & MANGA - Review
11:00 - 16th July 2016, by NEO Staff

Mysterious Girlfriend X

Who has a fringe that covers her face, a pair of scissors tucked into her knickers, and an obsession with making other people taste her spit? If you answered the protagonist of Mysterious Girlfriend X, then you get a prize! Open your mouth…

Already released in the UK as an anime courtesy of MVM Entertainment, Mysterious Girlfriend X comes to us in its original manga form this month from Vertical, a drooling romantic mess sure to gross out casual readers who can never quite get past the spit swapping.

But if you can manage to overcome the ick factor, you’ll find an outrageous yet sweet and funny tale of high school romance, which follows the budding relationship between the aforementioned heroine, Mikoto, and her always slightly bemused boyfriend, Akira. Ah, young love!

A gross concept, but a sweet and funny rom-com nonetheless.
SCORE: 4/5
