Anzu Hoshino needs only three things in her life: video games, chocolate, and her beloved cat. Unlike other high school girls, Anzu has no time for or interest in romance. But as she begins playing a poorly programmed 3D otome game, a bizarre flying wizard named Riri emerges from the screen and calls Anzu "subject one," the first person who will experience a dating game harem storyline in real life.

Despite Anzu's fiery protests, Riri confiscates her favorite things to force her to focus on love. Riri orchestrates a series of unlucky incidents and romantic cliches that lead her to meet Tsukasa Kazuki, one of the most attractive boys in her school. Still enraged, Anzu is adamant about resisting Tsukasa's charm. As all the ridiculous fabricated scenarios help Anzu warm up to Tsukasa's pleasant nature, Riri throws other stereotypical pretty boys her way—and avoiding romance quickly becomes almost impossible.

One day, a wizard named Riri appeared out of nowhere in front of Anzu Hoshino, the main heroine, and deprived her of her three daily life necessities, Momohiko, her pet cat, video games, and chocolate, to force her into the situation of actually finding love interests and dating, as her love life was essentially non-existent prior to that??? I know what I just said is in the synopsis, but it is just the ...

The truth is I expected less from this series, I thought it would be a typical romantic series of the bunch and although sometimes it is, it also brings to the table an idea that is really interesting, which is harassment, this happens almost at the end of this season but seeing that it is in the series impresses me a lot that they will take risks, on the other hand there are generic episodes most of the time, I know that this is the purpose of the series since the girl does not want to have any love relationship with anyone but I think ...

This is the difference between satire and parody. After I announced my frustration with the rom com genre where I finally got fed up with its bullshit in Couple of Cuckoos, I saw the synopsis of this show about a girl absolutely refusing to be part of that bullshit. It was a parody of the genre and I was all for it. There were some really funny jokes in this show shitting on the tropes and cliches. Rom coms are almost always driven by coincidence and contrivances and so this show takes it to the max with literal magic manipulating the events to cause, what ...
