Average Rating

In a futuristic society, Japan has implemented a complex system referred to as "The Red Threads of Science" to encourage successful marriages and combat increasingly low birthrates. Based on a compatibility calculation, young people at the age of 16 are assigned marriage partners by the government, with severe repercussions awaiting those who disobey the arrangement. For Yukari Nejima, a teen that considers himself average in every way, this system might be his best shot at living a fulfilling life. However, spurred by his infatuation for his classmate and long-time crush, Misaki Takasaki, Yukari defies the system and confesses his love. After some initial reluctance, Misaki reciprocates his feelings in a moment of passion. Unfortunately, before the two can further their relationship, Yukari receives his marriage notice. He is then thrown into a confusing web of love and lies when his less-than-thrilled assigned partner, Ririna Sanada, becomes fascinated with his illicit romance.

ED1: “Can’t you say” by Roys





Techaru

Largest eyes I’ve seen since Clannad.

Slashfic

Big ol’ anime eyes and an interesting plot. MC is light novel tier trash

Sabre

Beta male MC stubbornly pursues a girl despite already being shipped off with best girl Lilina who is extremely accommodating towards him.

Zoos

Many overused tropes and weird eyes (with a side of fanservice), but pretty nice in general.

GiacomoR

Mc is trash. Misaki best girl.

stepper

Watch how the main character completely chooses the wrong girl the whole season.

RCAnime

A unique expression of contracting cancer, finding a cure to it, but deciding to stick with cancer.

    “When do you think people die? When they are shot through the heart by the bullet of a pistol? No. When they are ravaged by an incurable disease? No. When they drink a soup made from a poisonous mushroom? No! It’s when… they are forgotten.” – Dr Hiruluk, One Piece
