Nazo no Kanojo X Chapter 92 Discussion
Sep 24, 2014 4:02 PM
THIS IS A MANGA ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS ANYTHING BEYOND THIS CHAPTER.
So Akira finally got a photo of her mom. For this final chapter, I think that's fitting. But even after 92 chapters of teasing, still no kiss although they told the readers why..
Damn it though, that was so close. It's basically the manga saying "deal with it XD!"
Heh. This has been a fun little journey I guess. 7/10.

Well then. Well well well well well well well then. Well then. Then then then. Haaaa....
What a typical Japanese ending- not truly satisfying. How disappointing. How enraging. How... Scornful. Well then everyone, grab your sledge hammers and we're taking a trip to Japan! Current destination, the Ueshiba Residence!
Just kidding. I was at least happy that the ending didn't have some stupidly bizarre plot twist- like Urabe actually turning out to be an alien like our suspicions caused us to believe and saying she has to return to her home planet or something... Or her being Tsubaki's long lost sister... Or one of them dies... Or a breakup... I suppose this could be much worse than what we got. Nonetheless, this was such a bland and uncreative ending, you'd think that the author would put more thought into the ending of a series with TEN years in the making. I'll be sad to see this series go, but I'll likely consider it my second favorite franchise for a while.
I suppose we could use this as a reminder of God; he's never going to end, nor disappoint us. Just keep that in mind and worries will always be put to rest.

I loved the anime back in 2012, so right after it ended I started reading the manga. I liked the manga too, there were some unforgettable scenes (like Urabe's smile at the last chapter of the Movie production arc). But this ending was really disappointing, not only for the lack of a kiss, but it felt somewhat rushed, no explanation at all about the "drool power" (like Urabe's ability to see Tsubaki's thoughts just by tasting his drool), and what about the city inside Tsubaki dream? Did it have a meaning at all?
Well, even with all this shortcomings, I still enjoyed it, so 7/10 for this manga.

After thinking about the whole series and that last chapter it really all fits. In story line time by then was perhaps 4-5 years hard to tell with multiple summer breaks and winters. Tsubaki is totally dominated by Urabe, after multiple years isn't allowed to hold Urabe's hand in public and is satisfied with that. Urabe defines early on that any expression of affection by Tsubake will be met with a scissors attack.
The last two chapters foreshadow the future with the revelation of Tsubaki's sister Youko having a warm high school relationship only to fall apart after graduation, after she dreams of a loving long lasting relationship. The author even points out that moment of sunset beauty admired by Youko. That scene is repeated by Tsubaki in the last frame of this final chapter after he refuses the opportunity to kiss, and after Urabe expressed the thought of long term hopes to Youko but not to the presumed man she loves but in fact she simply dominates. The future is well laid-out. When she wants to kiss, he will be reluctant, when he is ready, she will waffle. That is their default paradigm. In a comment on the anime page of this series on this site someone asked how it will all end. I suggested that they will drift apart and she will become a Special Forces instructor for advance scissor attacks and he will become a monk and they will both die virgins. Nothing offered with the final chapter leads me to believe otherwise. A totally dissatisfying ending.
As an aside I actually read the manga on the Kissmanga site. I like their format and page layouts, makes reading the manga easy. I offered comments on that forum similar to what I've written here and it was removed after a day.
Life happens, we move on.

I discovered the anime a few days ago, literally a day after the 10 year long manga series finished. I finished the anime pretty quickly and blew through the entire manga series in half a day.
I'd probably be more pissed if I spent the last 3-4 years patiently following the manga chapter by chapter but to be honest I'm mainly just disappointed. The manga didn't answer any of the questions I had from the anime and was packed with fluff. Mysterious Girlfriend Urabe is still a complete mystery. What's with her parents? What's her back story? What's happening after high school? etc. How will they cope and how will their relationship evolve/mature?
This series had so much potential to tell a bizarre and unique love story but instead they settled for 92 chapters of stale flirtation and a cutesy, vapid ending.

I were just fishing for anime last week and i found this....after i finished it and found out that the anime had a unsatisfying end and no second season i craved for more so i instantly picked up the manga and read everything in a couple days....
And i have to say i'm not very surprised about the ending.... but i enjoyed the ride ;)
He probably wont kiss her before they are on the altar ;3
What bothered me the most tho was that there is No Core Storyline Progression here ( if you don't count the Live Concert and Movie Production arcs...which sucked anyway).......yes we can all agree that the main characters have matured but the core story plot have not moved a inch since chapter 0 .........Which means that a majority of the manga just seems like a bunch of random OVA's cobbled together with a touch of ecchi here and there.... what amazes me is that at least 2 years have passed in the manga and they are still 17 years old and in class 2-A -_-
If the manga started at the end of the summer and the start of the second year in high-school then they should both be 18 and close to graduation by the time it ended....yeah that's right, let that thought sink in for a moment...
But on another note it really sucks that it just ends out of the blue... just like Sopranos ;_;
it is just like the author says "F*** it, i'm done" and it just ends.....
It would be great if the author would have continued for another 10 years....but to be honest....all anime that releases one chapter per month from a solo author is usually doomed to fail....i'm surprised it lasted this long....
I thought i was too old for romance manga's now but to be honest this manga warmed my heart just like Love Hina when i was in High-School 7-8 years ago.... i really feel like a kid again after reading Mystery GF X ;D
This Manga gave me a warm and refreshing yet mysterious feeling... I'd say 9/10 despite the hollow ending.

What a shitty ending. I discovered the anime about 7 months ago and I liked It. So, I started reading the available chapters and back then I was already disappointed but the idol arc, the movie arc and the way too much forced ans pointless love triangle and the story line being stuck in the Endless Eight always reapeting the same year of high school.
But still it was not too bad to wait the realeases in Crunchyroll and I consider it as an experience to see if I can read a manga without waiting for the last chapter to start reading it. (The experience failed, luckylely I still have a lot of complete manga to read)
Many times Tsubaki express his desire to kiss Urabe so it doesn't make any sense to refuse it when Urabe is fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinally is in the "mood" and throw some bullshit excuse as a decline of the offer. And Tsubaki tell him that they will be kissing each other every day, he should be happy but for some "reason" he prefers to keep sucking her finger. So he doesn't consider that kissing will deepen and improve more their relationship.
Such a disappointement 5/10

I enjoyed the series....it did lag a bit between the idol arc until the movie arc and then it picked up a bit during that arc, but after that it started lagging again.
I am sad it didn't go on for longer because they still could have built on some things....basically it is a bit of wasted potential. I'm glad they didn't kiss...it would have thrown off the idea of having this emotional bond without any sort of physical affection. They seemed to be really close at the end so I wouldn't say that their relationship "stalled"...they could have done an epilogue though.
It needed a few more chapters to explore the characters' pasts more. ESPECIALLY Urabe. Seriously.....so much more could have been done in general. I wish they had more notice about it ending since they were only given 2 chapters to wrap everything up.
4/5 for me because some chapters felt more like filler...they could have been used more effectively if they looked at character development more instead. It was a joy to read even though it was slow at times...I hope another manga/anime comes out that has a similar theme to it.
I enjoyed the fact that they cared so deeply about each other despite not even kissing at all. A lot of pages are wasted on sex scenes in other mangas to be honest if you read other manga...that is why it stood out for me despite the drooling thing (which I got used to after a few chapters).
