The show centers around our main character, Kobeni Yonomori, a 16 year old at the start of the series when she finds out that she has been engaged to a boy from the mountains. Thus later that day the boy, who looks considerably older than Kobeni, and his sister, who looks more like an 8 year old drop by. Kobeni's mother, who for the rest of the series is less than a supporting character, tells her that her grandfather , long dead now, engaged them when she was very little. What follows in the next few episodes is how, Kobeni handles this news, and how read more

"Dust in her eye? I'm gonna kill it!" - Hakuya Mitsumine.

Over the last few years, Rom-coms have become stale; the violent tsundere, a harem, the childhood friend, unrequited love, all of the shows seem to have these itsy-bitsy things. As such, the comedy becomes stale, they become increasingly dull to watch and you automatically know what is going to come next.

But not with Mikakunin de Shinkoukei.
I repeat, you will not be able to predict what will be coming next in this little anime.

Mikakunin de shinkoukei is REALLY unpredictable. It drops the bomb on huge things like it's no big deal and makes a big deal read more

*This review will contain minor spoilers*

Mikakunin de Shinkoukei is one of many romantic comedy, slice of life anime that doesn't bring anything new to the table, but still manages to be a highly enjoyable series and a fun watch.

Story - 8/10
The story isn't really about how both characters meet and start to love eachother, but instead is how Kobeni deals with this new situation suddenly brought up to her since she never knew Hakuya and has no feelings for him. At the start, Kobeni is really embarrassed doesn't want anybody to find out about the engagement , but as the episodes go by, she starts read more

I have watched 47 anime shows (completed) and I never really bothered to write reviews. However, Mikakunin de Shinkoukei lit a spark in me. Inspired me to write about it, I suppose.

~Story~ (9/10)

Nowadays the typical idea for manga is that the characters suddenly meet. I got used to that and honestly, that was what I was expecting. However, in this case it is different. 16 year olds Hakuya and Kobeni find themselves caught in an arranged marriage. It was set up by Kobeni's deceased grandfather. As some shows do: Hakuya moves in with Kobeni. He has read more

Anime dealing with arranged marriage. In Nisekoi, the main characters must be a couple in order to stop rivalry between mafia groups. In Mikakunin de Shinkoukei aka Engaged to the Unidentified, our main couple are engaged due to an incident that happen in the past. Both anime deals with school, life, romance, comedy, and drama. Add love triangle to spice things up. Both anime airing this year.  
In both shows, you can find:
- A girl with red hair as lead character, both of whom are very attractive to look at (though with almost entirely opposite builds – Chiyo is small in both regular size and boob size, while Kobeni is taller and quite well-endowed)
- A somewhat atypical, even unusual teenage romance (between either the leads or the side characters), the extent of which becomes more clear as the show progresses
- A somewhat stoic, even dense male lead (which is mostly played for comedy in either show)
- Interesting, funny, even quirky side characters.

Also, Doga Kobo is responsible  read more

Both are romantic anime where the main protagonist doesn't know that they has a fiance. In the anime the fiance arrives suddenly and make the life enjoyable. I recommend to watch both. 
Love takes on an innocent style. For both Aichi Kocchi and Mikakunin de Shinkoukei, it follows group of friends at school and home as they live life at fullest. Within the centerpiece of their stories involve the concept of love, a concept that becomes complicated through each episode.

There is a lighthearted background with humorous dialogues between the characters. They also follow more of a slice of life format as opposed to a linear story. 
An idiosyncratic finance moves into the house of the main character in episode one and the romantic comedy progresses from there.  
I`m adding this purely because both Anime`s have the best Comedy and are simply adorable. The story of both anime are completely and utterly different, but for those looking for comedy and good laughs should try both of these out.
