Third-year high school student Jirou Yakuin is in love with his childhood friend and classmate, Shiori Sakurazaka. Thus, he hopes to be paired with her for the marriage practical: their school's practice of randomly selecting boy-girl pairs to live as pretend married couples while monitoring and rating them on how close they have gotten. Meanwhile, the lively Akari Watanabe wants to be assigned to her crush, the popular and good-looking Minami Tenjin.

Much to their dismay, Jirou and Akari find out that not only have they been paired together, but so have Shiori and Minami! Determined to be with their crushes, Jirou and Akari strive to earn as many points as possible, as the top 10 pairs earn the right to switch their partners—so long as both couples agree.

The synopsis of "More than a married couple, but not lovers" suggests that this show probably won't be anything deep, but rather light, enjoyable, relaxing rom-com. For real - how can so ridiculous concepts like "marriage practical" be treated seriously? This premise, however, seems to be pretty original, comparing it to other similar shows. The closest matches are probably Nisekoi and Koi to Uso (forced marriage/pairing), but none of these shows treated this theme in this type of way.

I appreciate the original take when it comes to marriage practical theme. Even if it seems funny, or even stupid in the synopsis, it works ...

Mixed Feelings
The amount of internal brain hemorrhaging while watching this show is truly a testament to how annoying and critical the story is in making a decent show.

Best way to describe this show is like this, "Rent A Girlfriend Anime, With a Decent MC, with 2 characters that can be considered love interests."
The problem is not that the story is horrible, it's just the fact that the "Marriages" are very cliche, like Romeo and Juliet, but the MC can't decide whether he wants one or the other, like he wants his cake and to eat it too. But at the same time the love interests ...

Well tbh i didnt have a lot of hope while starting the first episode but at least i've been lured by the fact it's a seinen to believe it might be mature. Well ngl i was wrong, this isnt mature. Sometimes it's borderline ecchi but it's not really different from a shounen slice of life.
It's been a while now i review those romance animes/mangas and it becomes increasingly boring and hard to find inspiration while writing because it's just a taste of deja vu for me. Like a feeling that everything i write for 75% of those animes could be switched with other animes ...
