Just an ordinary teenager, Kobeni Yonomori receives quite the surprise on her 16th birthday—a fiancé and a sister-in-law she never even knew she had. As a result of an arrangement that her late grandfather made, Hakuya Mitsumine and his younger sister Mashiro have moved from their countryside home to the Yonomori household in order to deepen their relationship with their new family members.

Mikakunin de Shinkoukei follows Kobeni's "love life" with Hakuya as she tries her best to adjust to the abrupt changes forced upon her. However, as some extraordinary secrets regarding the siblings come to light, Kobeni will find her life changed forever.

Mikakunin de Shinkoukei originally premiered on Japan's ABC station, and also aired on Tokyo MX, BS11, and AT-X. The series was simulcast on Crunchyroll and several other websites outside of Japan. Sales for a six-volume DVD set of the series began March-August 2014.

Although the anime follows the manga closely, the final episode is original to the anime.

"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 ...

Mixed Feelings
This anime was cute, yet frustrating. The main characters that are engaged never actually get any alone time to talk to each other and when they do, Kobeni just mumbles and doesn't actually talk about anything.

The story was very vague and didn't have any strong points and was disappointing. The ending was a let down in my opinion.

The sound was pretty cute. They had little piano parts here and ...

So we have a slife of life romance about dogs and people or is it... i wouldnt know BECAUSE THEY NEVER ACTUALLY TURN INTO DOGS.

This title translates to, engaged to the unidenitified and good ...
