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.

OP1: “Kanashii Ureshii (かなしいうれしい)” by Frederic (フレデリック)
ED1: “Can’t you say” by Roys


Largest eyes I’ve seen since Clannad.


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


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


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


Mc is trash. Misaki best girl.


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


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
