Lies are forbidden and love is doubly forbidden. In the near future, when young people in Japan turn sixteen, they are assigned a marriage partner by the government. People don't have to go through the trouble of looking for someone, and everyone accepts that the country will find a compatible partner to make them happy. Yukari Nejima is fifteen years old. He lives in a small corner of the country, and just can't seem to get ahead in life. Both academically and athletically he's below average. But within him, he hides a heart burning with passion! In this world in which love is forbidden, what will happen to him when he falls in love?

"Whassup Homie"-Marie Fgo2k17. Hope you guys remember me. MAL took down my review because they feel that I didnt write down what I like about the series (even when I gave it a 2) and what I dont, with some info provided. Amazing, MAL, you took down my review and dont bother taking down someone else's who basically copied almost my entire review and post it on the page. (I'm not complaining but plagiarism is not allowed here right? And that review was written by me before I made some changes which was eventually deleted by mal.) Well, here I am to be more CRITICAL read more

What is a Lie?

Unmixed affection? Forbidden shallow or infatuated emotions? Could be both?
What's more suitable are it's situation entangled such selfish and greedy desire that you can't even takes chances to escape between miserable pointless scenario between your youth

I've seen any skeptical reactions when it comes to relationship about love triangle issues and force marriage.

Setbacks can be a little too frustrated since how these characters interact in each other which is a big excuse to take affection onto someone that gone to waste.Fast-paced romance at the beginning is a well good start since if they adapted less chapters from the manga or you don't really read more

This is just a PARTIAL review covering episodes 1-4 of Koi to Uso (Love and Lies)
This partial review will be Spoiler Free, Direct and Concise.

Firstly I will Categorize the scoring for the basic numeration for a standard scoring.
STORY: 9/10
*It focuses on a social economic real life situation where Japan is situated with its problems of low birth rates.
*How the government solves the crisis with arranged marriage and stipulating it with the problems of society.

At first a foreshadowing of the first scene will give us an idea on what will the outcome be.
The first episode will fell like it will be a cliche. For the development read more

Just after watching the first episode, the first thing you will notice is a very soggy art which was quite irritating. The concept is very different and different doesn't always mean good.

Pace is high, WAY TOO HIGH. I think in just first episode, the production managed to showcase big fraction of story which was supposed to be.

Comic timings were average enough. Depends on the mood you are watching.

Only this much I can say about the anime after watching it's first episode. I'll update the changes later.

Just a note, a friend of mine is reading its manga. He warned me not to attract spoiler to myself. read more
