MYSTERIOUS GIRLFRIEND X

Posted by RommelS On September - 22 - 2013

MYSTERIOUS GIRLFRIEND XSYNOPSIS:
When the oddly peculiar Mikoto Urabe transfers into Akira Tsubaki’s class, he finds that life has thrown him the weirdest curve ball ever.  While Urabe may be an anti-social loner who sleeps on her desk, carries a pair of scissors in her underwear, and breaks out in sudden fits of insane laughter, there’s something about her that Tsubaki just can’t quite put his finger on. …Until he accidentally puts his finger in it, and suddenly the phrase “sharing spit with a girl” takes on an entirely new meaning!

 

Before he can wipe her drool off his face, Tsubaki is mysteriously addicted to Urabe, which isn’t half as strange as the fact that she not only finds this normal, but already seems to have plans for her new drooling boyfriend.  So, can a girl spitting in your face ever be a GOOD thing?  Is this relationship bound for disaster or great expectorations?  Find out as Urabe puts a spittle love in Tsubaki’s heart and things get REALLY bizarre!

Hazuki may be near-sighted, but he knows true beauty when he sees it and the delicate form of flower shop owner Rokka draws him in like a bee to honey.  So, hoping to cultivate a relationship between them, Hazuki takes a part-time job at her shop, only to discover two huge thorns preventing the nurturing of any romance.  The first, the fact that Rokka is still grieving for her late husband Shimao, would be enough to snip most men’s ardor short, but it’s the second that really threatens to make Hazuki’s forlorn hopes wilt.  Because while Shimao is most definitely deceased, he hasn’t yet departed, and his spirit is still living in Rokka’s apartment!

 

Except… only Hazuki can see him, which leads to a very strange romantic triangle indeed.  Are Hazuki’s chances with Rokka as dead as the man who still lives in her house?  Or can he somehow make love blossom even though there’s an interloper pushing up the daisies between them?  One way or another, the ground’s going to be rocky and someone or something’s likely to get cut off in the bud!
