Nazo no Kanojo X – The Mysterious First Date
The Mysterious First Date takes place in the summer the boys are outside playing soccer while the girls are swimming. The boys in class aren’t rating looks but boob size.
Each boy is assigned a girl to go and sneak a look at them in their bathing suit. When its Akira’s turn to look at Mikoto in her bathing suit, he fails.
The rest of the episode takes place on Akira and Mikoto’s first date together at the beach.
Characters in this episode seem to go in reverse, Akira and Mikoto are on a date but they don’t really talk to each other, they do some things that couples do at the beach but they seem to be distance from each other. Also its like meeting Mikoto for the first time again cause she hides her face, all we really see is her eye.
Again Mikoto’s voice saves the sound cause to be honest nothing really great in terms of sound, Ive heard it all before.
Mikoto’s new tanned look is just great, really a nice change to the series and perhaps better animation on her in this new look.
I’ll be honest, I hate anime beach episodes, so far no series that has done a beach episode Nazo no Kanojo X is no different then the rest. I wanted to actually skip this episode soon as I seen previews and said “Shit not a beach episode” I just feel these episodes are just made and used for fan service that has to be the only reason for them.
I think the only thing I liked about this episode is the fact that Mikoto is in a swimsuit and unlike Mei’s in Another’s beach episode its a two piece so there’s some bonus points and if I was in Akira’s shoes when Mikoto shows why she’s wearing the skirt I would get a nose bleed as well!
