One day, a strange transfer student appears before Tsubaki. Urabe Mikoto is an antisocial girl, whose hobby is just sleeping during class-breaks. One day, Tsubaki goes to wake her up and accidentally tastes her drool... And gets hooked on that!

After that, he starts going out with her and gets to know her better. Her second hobby, as it turns out, is carrying around scissors in her panties and cutting paper into flowers...

After looking at the first sites of manga i thought: "What the bloody..?!", but since I had exactly nothing to do I started to read it, and, obviously, became addicted.

I don't know if author had some serious memories coennected with drooling girls in school or what, but he made a fabulous comic.

Not much too tell about it. Two young people in their school years. Anything other can by explained with tags. There should be also an "ecchi" tag, though.

Oldschool. A bit like "Ranma 1/2".

Although the plot is a bit.. paranormal.. you might say, that all characters seem like if they could really live in normal read more

Well first of all, if you don't like to be bewildered by a transferee student with short hair, long bangs and has a weird hobby of cutting different shapes with scissors, then don't take this!

The story begins with Urabe being introduced to Tsubaki's class. She does not attempt to be sociable with her fellow classmates, choosing to sleep at her desk during lunch, and soon earns a reputation as being strange. One day, Tsubaki wakes Urabe (who was again sleeping at her desk) late after class to tell her the building will be closing soon so she needs to go home. After she has left, read more

For me this has been a long time coming, or at least it's felt that way. Like a lot of people, I only began to read the MGX manga after watching the anime; I needed more of the very sweet and honest relationship I'd become obsessed with in the day it took me to marathon the series.

I've never cried before while reading or watching anything until I read MGX. I have never been as emotionally invested as I have in a piece of media before.

I picked it up at a weird time. The second (and final) major arc had just ended, allowing me to steam read more

After reading the first chapter i had to ask myself one question; What in the world am i reading? It was hard for me at first to determine if this mange would be any good. So, giving it the benefit of the doubt, i decided to give this one a chance. And it urns out i made the right decision!

The story starts of like about every school themed manga/anime out there. The protagonist, named Tsubaki, leads an average life, until a strange exchange student (Urabe Mikoto) appears. She's quiet, sleeps during breaks and generally covers her face with her bangs. It doesn't last long until read more

I was amazed at how much the premise of these two mangas are alike. Both stories revolve around a guy who's pretty much under the complete control of a girl as far as sexual relationships go and their girl counterpart has no shame in exploiting it. Despite both being seinen, Sundome contain much more graphic, ecchi and smutty art than Mysterious Girlfriend.

The main characters are somewhat similar. The male lead and female lead have strange connections to each other. In MGX, Tsubaki and Urabe share each other thoughts by transferring saliva to one another, which is Mikoto's "ability." In Teiougaku, Moriguchi and Harunabara share images that Harunabara sees in her thoughts, when they come into contact with each other.
Both of these titles have underlying supernatural circumstances that push characters to swap saliva.
Both main characters kind of look the same at a distance but the difference is that in one series the girl is ugly while in the other the girl is hot (But both characters still look cute) . Both characters are kind of weird and have a rather awkward social life.

Both series also share a similar setting and are both pretty funny and amusing because of the unexpected events that happen
A Girl and a boy share an atypical bond that is triggered by kissing/saliva. The girl also is not your typical schoolgirl, somewhat strange in their own way.
Both are about school boy who wants to make friends with a little unusual girl.
