Mysterious Girlfriend X continues to surpass my expectation with this weeks episode involving kissing, test tubes, confessions, and being pantyless.
At the start of the episode, we see Tsubaki discovering that his best friend, Ueno, kiss a girl in a empty classroom. It was pretty obvious that he did have one but if you think about it, not many best friends in anime usually don’t get a love interest. As of now, Oka, Ueno girlfriend, hasn’t shown much of her character but it’ll all change once she starts hanging out with Urabe and helping her out in her relationship building.
After the kissing scene, Tsubaki wants to have a kiss with Urabe. Urabe agrees but not in the way he was expecting. Urabe spins around and proceed to put her drool in a test tube. She tells Tsubaki to taste it when he is going to sleep. And so he dreams of him and Urabe having a mouth to mouth exchange of candy. He notice, from the little exchange, had no feeling to it and so he tells Urabe that they should wait till they can truly understand each other. Despite having a relationship, the two haven’t exchange feelings with each other and would explain why Urabe doesn’t want any physical contact just yet. In a way this enforces that idea and it leads into the other part of the episode, a confession from another person.
Ogata, a classmate of Tsubaki and Urabe, confess to Urabe. He is popular with the girls at school, he’s on the soccer team, and has nice looks. All this makes Tsubaki worry about whether Urabe will choose him or Ogata. However, Urabe doesn’t care for looks or status, she cares for the bond and so she offers Ogata to taste her drool. When he does, nothing happens and so Urabe leaves him. When Urabe offers her drool to Tsubaki, his nosebleeds. Turns out Urabe wasn’t wearing any panties the whole day and only Tsubaki would know through the bonding. Its a pretty bold move on Urabe’s part, especially if Ogata did get an reaction to the drool. But nothing happened and Urabe was happy that her bond with Tsubaki is special. In the end, the two are getting closer and closer as they walk home hand in hand.
It impressive how the show can use these strange concepts and implement them so well in a romance build theme.
Next week, Oka X Urabe!
