I remember when I first heard that Mysterious Girlfriend X was getting an anime. I couldn’t believe it. I was so excited. I couldn’t wait to see my favorite scenes become animated.
After only three episodes, my will to watch this anime has become stalled.
However, I think it’s more than that just that. I think it has to do with the fact that I have a fear of the anime going absolutely nowhere just as the manga has gone. I know there are people who would disagree with me, but the manga has simply not gone anywhere. Their relationship has basically stood still for years with something interesting happening every few months that basically accumulates to nothing. It’s like seeing the snow start the night before a school day only to wake up to 90 degree weather. It’s heart-wrenching to say the least.
Like I said, I’ve only seen the first three episodes of the anime and I believe that there are currently five episodes that have been subbed. I also have heard that the story isn’t being written by the creator. I guess that’s a slight glimmer of hope that their relationship might be different in the anime than it is in the manga, but those first 3 episodes have not helped in the least. They all have been carbon copies of the manga. Even the horrible NTR (imo) chapter was added into the anime. That chapter is just complete poison to the start of their relationship and I still can’t believe they felt it needed to be in the anime.
Someone on the anime team probably has an NTR Drool fetish and I hate them for it.
Maybe I’m wrong about it all. Maybe they feel that the manga was a strong start and they felt they didn’t need to change any of it for the anime. While I would agree on the one-shot being a strong start, I wouldn’t agree with anything else having the same kind of strength that the one-shot had. One-shot Urabe to me is vastly superior to the actual manga Urabe. I was hoping that One-shot Urabe would be the driving force behind anime Urabe, but my hopes have fallen after the first three episodes.
Maybe I should give it a shot. I’m not really watching anything this season with the exception of Haiyore! Nyaruko-san. I have the other two episodes ready to watch. I should probably just sit down and check them out to see if they’ve become any different from the first three. Here’s hoping they are. In closing, I want to leave you with this post from 4chan.
