Mysterious Girlfriend X

Mysterious Girlfriend X

Mikoto Urabe is...an odd one. As a fresh transfer student into Akira Tsubaki's class, it's expected for her to be shy at first; what he gets instead is an anti-social loafer that carries scissors in her underwear and breaks out in insane fits of laughter! An innocent kiss throws Tsubaki for a loop, when he discovers that he has become curiously enamored (or addicted) to Urabe, and she knows JUST what to do with him. With a new toy to play with, there's no telling what's in store for Tsubaki, as "swapping spit" takes on a whole new meaning in Mysterious Girlfriend X!
