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 ...

“It gets better”

Such a phrase is commonly reserved for multi-season (sometimes action) comedies which take a few episodes or most of a season to experiment before hitting their stride, as well as long-running shounens which tend to explode at a certain arc. That being said, it’s also often used for shows that leave a mediocre or abysmal first impression before allegedly picking up in quality according to a consensus. Chivalry of a Failed Knight, Gundam ZZ, and Symphogear are somewhat popular examples. Whether or not such an argument is convincing or even true is obviously down to preference and case by case basis, but personally, ...

I am minimally curious about how enjoyable this “marriage practical” thing would be if it actually was a real thing in real life. Things would be spicy in school, the tea would be spilling nonstop, and it would genuinely be really entertaining to watch the gong show unfold. Sadly, in this anime, this “spicy” premise of the marriage practical felt merely like a farce, and didn’t contribute much to the story other than the first few episodes. After that, it turned into a very generic romcom, but so, so frustrating to watch. Time after time I find myself pausing the episode just to facepalm and ...
