"Mysterious Girlfriend X is mostly subtle and kind of sweet, even when it creeps toward lewdness, and manages to have an addictive quality that can only be attributed to that damn drool.”
"This is the most absurd way to tell what is actually a touching love story of two seemingly socially outcast individuals falling for each other. It minces no words over its belief in the fate that is true love, but doesn’t stumble doing so.”
