I really wanted to like this, but this just felt so...ugh.
I love the plot but this kind of relationship and dynamic between the two characters felt ever so unrealistic.
Initially she tells him that she doesn't remember him. He almost backs down, and then freaks out and tells her to meet him at 6:30pm after school. In my mind, she didn't know who he was and was probably creeped out, and so I wasn't surprised that she didn't turn up.

...except she did turn up, 4 hours late, having kept his rubber in her pocket for the past 5 years? And happens to like him too? Seriously?
I know there's going to be some explanation but at that point but this isn't for me and the visuals aren't helping much either.

Did she think he would still be waiting for her at 10:30 in the night? (Even though he was, admittedly). I mean...what? They literally haven't said a word to each other for 5 years...

The fact that he literally fell in love with her just from giving her half an eraser also makes this pretty shoddy - it's obviously just a schoolboy crush and feels really, really superficial. I can't see any reason to support it. He hasn't even gotten to know her before. He doesn't know anything about her (as far as I can see).

I guess the sudden romance here really didn't make any sense, it suggests that it won't last at all and so I feel less inclined to watch it. Sure, love's like that sometimes, but this is just ridiculous.

I feel like this will be one of those stressful animes where the main character has to fight for the girl he loves. I don't like those kinds so hope I'm wrong.

the eyes are very pretty, wtf is everyone talking about lol

anyway i wasn't going to watch this anime cause i thought it would be depressing to see this, but i guess it might actually be nice

the confessing scene was pretty adorable but we all knew how the episode was going to end

actually, would anyone wait for like 5 hours after the promised time?...also the police just left and didn't catch them again?

i still hope for them to get together at the end
even if that would be 1 of those "1 in a million chances" that i criticized so much on re:creators, at least it wouldn't be as bad as the Mamika scene


then again i think i wouldn't mind an arranged marriage since that way i wouldn't need to find a girl myself LOL

What a weird MC. I mean I know Anime logic and all but damn keeping your eraser for 5 years for some crush? Damn, that's almost creepy.

And lol those goverment officials just happen to show up at the park. What are they stalking every kid that turns 16 years old?

Ok, gotta say that I loved the first episode, but I didn't expect an early kiss from the get-go though, lol. And a French one at that, lmao.

Might turn out to be something I really enjoy. Absolutely loved the OST, that's for sure. Reminded me of Kuzu no Honkai's.

interesting, so the Government decide who marry who if their citizen reach age of 16 because of the Low Birth Rates and they forbid their citizen to make their own love. sounds like a delicious NTR tag for me, slurp sluurp.

the eyes so big lul, well i will get use to it eventually.
wow, that kiss tho.
Misaki so cute, i like short hair girls it really refreshing to watch.

Add in the fact that Kana Hana is Misaki as well...I was thinking Toradora but yeah it's going to be just like Nisekoi. He'll end up falling in love with blonde and that will be it. If antyhign the broken sMs gives you hope...but come on let's face facts we know how this anime will end.

Im only interested in it now if Neji does something like rebel against the government...but it seems to be not that serious of an anime.

I see there's already a huge split between opinions on this series.
I'd agree though.. So many flaws in this episode.. But I think it's not that bad. Though the huge eyes are a bit bothering me but I know I'd get used to it real quick. Yes, I'm going to stick with it for a few more episodes and I'll see from there. xD

nisekoi -> romance comedy
koi to uso -> romance drama
please pay attention to the storyline before grouping something together. just because they have blonde girl, doesnt mean that it will become similar to nisekoi

Hmm, really liking that opening theme. I read a manga with a similar idea to this one time. Except it was ecchi, stupid, and the very first relationship was incest. Anyway, this seemed quite enjoyable though their faces bugged me a bit, but I'd say this was pretty good and it was sweet as heck and WOW THEY TOOK THAT RELATIONSHIP FAR IN THE FIRST EPISODE. I was happy watching this up until the end when the feels hit me like a bat to the face. I look forward to this series.

Don't correct me if I am wrong (looking at you manga readers) but i just wanted to get this out there;
I think that Takasaki (purplish-black haired girl) is a part of something, like in cahoots with the government or somewhere along those lines. This is b/c:
1: She was hella late to their meeting point (10:00! Holy shit that's a long shit)
2: She "lied" (maybe) about remembering him (She might have forgot completely and somehow got reminded that from someone?)
3: Never explained why she was late and ran off abruptly after the two agents came in contact( I understand she might just be sad and couldn't bear the thought of her crush marrying someone else)

But hey, that aside it was a 9/10 episode
Soundtrack is legit af
Art-syle quirky but i'll get the hang of it

Most definitely one of the gems imo

A couple things. First, please don't say it's predictable. You can call it predictable and criticize the anime after it actually happens. Second, please don't be spoiling other manga/anime. You're very lucky that I know about the end result for Nisekoi already; otherwise, I would be extremely disappointed. Please delete your comment or put a spoiler tag. Thanks a bunch man.

What happened at the end. Is it the government hack Nejima document changing his companion or the SMS that being received by Nejima is fake?

Actually, Kuzu no Honkai's end is good besides the fact that the Yuri ship sank, Mugi x Hanabi ship is bound to sink coz it's overrated and shallow and forced

The moment his phone turned off at the same time the officials came..totally not planned.
Best girl already appeared too; we are off to a good start.



I think from that picture, she also doesn't like it to be paired by the government.lol

Ok, that was actually fucking great! There clearly is something suspicious going on with the notification. I knew this would be in good hands since it was being done by the Yamada Kun and the Seven Witches director. The OST was shockingly good. Beautiful art style, I enjoy what the director did.

At the first, I thinking that Koi to Uso was just like Kuzu no Honkai. (yeah,maybe because the art style of the anime was almost same). By the way, it almost just feel like that the scene was just the end of the story. I like the kissing scene though :). It was just too fast for a first episode. MY GOD.... I didn't know that Takasaki was voice covered by Kana Hanazawa. Damn... I'm a big fan of her actually. Overall, nice anime though....

I wasn't expecting that the first episode was almost same scene as Kuzu no Honkai.

Hmm quite an interesting first episode. Interesting theme of using sponsored marriages to combat population decline though. Interesting law as well. Hmm so the marriage partners are matched according to genes eh but at least it seems to have stabilized the birth rate. Though i guess not everyone will be happy with this system. Nice opening theme as well. Lol quite a funny vow though. Population stability vs individual happiness eh. No one can all in love without being brave though and i admire Yukari's determination. Interesting how when he's nervous Yukari can create some interesting objects. Well at least she did arrive in the end though she almost ran out of time. Its nice that in the end Misaki did remember the rubber and what it meant though. Nice confession scene as well and it was really sweet and cute to see. Its cute how they both fell in love because of the eraser though. But too bad that was interrupted by the notice though. Hmm i guess that Yukari actually had another girl assigned to him then. I feel sorry for Misaki though hearing this news now though. Nice ending though and im glad that he managed to catch her. Things will be hard from now on though.

Maybe Takasaki lied and cried because she already got her government notification. The way the phone crashed and how the people in suits found him was weird. Maybe there are conspirators. Though, they somehow knew Takasaki’s birthday, which makes me think Takasaki sent a fake notification. Also suggested by the way she reacted. Anyway, it was a good episode 7/10. The character’s emotions were well felt. The only part that I felt nothing in was when Nejima confessed in the park, which was meant to be embarrassing. Though, that meant just be because I am immune to cringe. I like how they mentioned the increase in average intelligence. It goes well with an anime that questions the system. For anyone who questions the implementation of the system, asian culture is different from westerner’s, so it is possible for such a system to become law.

It's a nice concept, but it seems to me that the seriousness in the story is going to be a bad match with the art style. I wish it was less.. idk... shiny?

I like the story so far, though, and the OP was nice!

I'm neutral on this anime at the moment. It can either turn out good or turn out bad from here. Of course, a lot of people are talking about how unrealistic this anime is (how his phone glitches, how a system would exist etc.) but come on, this is anime. Of course it's unrealistic, and it doesn't really bother me thus far.
I like how the MC likes burial mounds. It's completely random, I know, but unique to his character, making him less like the average MC. Some may call it a gimmick, but I like it.

Wasn't expecting such beginning, holy shit. Even the art with big eyes is not my favourite - I got used to it pretty fast, especially after seeing those beautiful tears.

Amazing start, I hope they'll keep it up and somehow get together, they looks like an amazing couple.

Finally! An anime where the male character has some balls and actually kisses the female character! Wasn't expecting that in the first episode. You'd be lucky to have that in the last episode, but dang! I'll definitely stick around to watch the rest, it seems interesting.
