I don't even know why but that introduction seemed fucking amazing to me!! It's just the sort of thing that I was looking for and although nothing too special, I absolutely adored that first episode.

It did not waste the first half a season establishing the scene. Instead it built everything up very quickly and effectively then dropped the cliffhanger ending on us like a fucking bomb! I can't wait for the next episode and I think that this could end up being anime of the season!!!

Predictability is not worth rating a show 1/10 after watching one episode. This could be the most predictable shit in the entire world and still end up being a masterpiece. Look at Toradora, it's the exact same situation. I can understand if you don't want to continue with a show but don't rate it 1 if you never gave it a chance, it just brings poor light to what could actually be very high quality

I was pleasantly surprised after going into the show with low expectations, loved the artstyle and soundtrack. As they said, story is like Nisekoi. Still, I enjoyed it.
The OP is damn addictive!

So... the desc makes me think of Kuzu no Honkai... And the main girl reminds me of Hanabi.
I feel like the romance was a bit sudden. I guess it is to kick things off. I like how it jumps right to it.... but hard to really cheer for them when barely any development even happens.
And the main character isn't very likeable to me. I like the female lead however.

Goverment workers casually passing through at 12am, especially when it seems that couples can get their notifications by phone xD

And of course messages don't match, something suspicious is going on or just that guy was high while reciving his info.


Also, kinda generic characters, let's see how it will look in next episodes.

Manga readers, I heard that the whole story is basically, "who will the MC end up with?"
Is that true?
If so, I'll drop the anime.

Honestly kinda neutral right now sure it has issues things like very impeccable timing i.e. The government agents, her showing up after 4 hoursabd him still being there, the notice at midnight although to be far there it's based on genetics so he just happened to have a match immediately unlike others who don't and have to wait. The notification process in general the mc got a hand delivered physical copy while his marriage parter got an email. With regards with people's complaints on the premise the law was passed in 1945 Japan even in real life that very well could have happened in Japan at that time. Now with regards to the marriage that young in most Asian countries people are married far younger than in the west as others have stated. Now in regards to there shallow version of love it makes sense because it appears dating before age 16 isn't really a thing and since you don't have to worry about marriage there really isn't a need to do most people won't know or ever know what our version of love is until they meet there marriage parter. Remember it's present day so it's been 70+ years since the law was put into effect so generally speaking no one would remember the old ways of dating and non physical love from a societal standpoint. So of course love is far shallower since they don't know any better

Yeah, the mangaka will drag the story for 130+ chapters to the latest with only little developments and still at the stalemate.

The anime and first episode is something that will make non manga readers like me to read it but it was a letdown after catching up.

I'm also hoping here for an original anime ending.

I won't be reading the rest of this thread, because I cringed few times reading only this page. I don't want to cringe even more.

What am I supposed to say. It was great, soundtrack is phenomenal, direction and narration too. I just hope for more drama, not comedy. This episode was heartbreaking, and I don't expect anything happy anything soon to happen.
Definitely looking forward for more.

Kind of mixed feelings about this.

Can any manga reader help me? Has that message which said the black haired girl's name been dealt with in the manga yet?

I will tread cautiously with this one. I get the feeling that this will be like any other love triangle and this setting is just to give it a different feel. But it would be a bummer for the message they tried to give here if he actually ends up with his chosen partner. Maybe they'll have some asspull at the end that the black haired girl was actually the chosen partner and by choosing the blonde, he actually chose against the government, if the author wants the blonde to win and try to maintain the message he was giving here. But I guess that wouldn't really cut it because he believes the blonde to be his chosen partner. I guess I should stop overthinking so much.


Anyways 3/5.

The character designs are a bit weird, but it's doing good on every other aspect and it's following the manga well. I think this will turn out alright if it continues what it's doing.

The premise seems good and while it's silly that they fell in love with each other over an eraser, I can't get over the fact that government officials came scrolling through the night to deliver the papers lol. I mean he wasn't even home! How'd they know where is was at EXACTLY 12:00am? Most people are sleeping at that time. Do they pay visits to people at 12:00am all the time? What if he went abroad to celebrate his birthday. Would they travel abroad to hand deliver them? xD

I felt uneasy watching this, it reminded me of Kuzu no Honkai tbh. But turns out it's not as raunchy as that. Art/animation is really pretty. Will be watching more because it looks interesting. People told me it's like Nisekoi which disappointing bc that sucks.

A great first episode. Reminds me of kuzu no honkai mostly because the girls look similar with even similar voices. I hope its not similar in story, I can tell this will have an abundance of heartbreaking moments but thats not what i want to see. These characters, especially the main guy, dont deserve this unlike kuzu no honkai where they were doing everything to themselves. Truths may be uncovered as i can see things that may be explained sooner or later. Like why did she lie to him by saying that she didnt remember? Why was his phone glitching out? Why did the people decided to give him the papers in person and not in the mail like everyone else?

While that's true the series is much shorter compared to many other manga series in terms of pages per chapter so it takes longer.

Hm, I wonder if the government officials intentionally took the couple apart and changed the matching on the spot. Maybe there's a danger factor to allowing couples to come together by true love.

It reminded me a bit of Kuzu no Honkai

Don't really like it visually but may get used to it

Interesting premise, so I guess they will be dating in secrecy then? And how much of her feelings she actually faked for him? (she probably couldn't remember the eraser.. or could she?) Can't wait to see where this leads to as there is certain chance of love polygon and although it's a bit predictable and I can already say main heroine isn't so ideal as she seems to be. And his classmate is probably destined to get her as his bride to fuck things up.

HanaKana was great as always and I'm already in love with her new character. Can't say the same for boy's VA, it's a little too high pitched for me.

Got strong vibes of Kuzu no Honkai from this, it's evident Liden actually tries to do something similiar with this anime (even though they can't beat it, that's for sure, but this can still turning into one very interesting series).

Dude I'm not calling Toradora a masterpiece XD I'm just giving an example of something that although predictable as hell, is still very good and rated very highly. You can hate Toradora and that's completely fine but predictability means fuck all as something can still be just as entertaining even if you are told the ending from the start

I thought it was an ok-ish 1st episode... I'm ok with the art of the manga, but here... err, I'm not feeling it for some reason.

OST is really good, but that's a given coming from Masaru Yokoyama. He got a knack for music, especially drama based series.

Having been reading the source for some time now, I got say that my expectations for this are low, unless they alter it for the better, but.. I'll keep watching it for the time being. If this gets worse than the manga in terms of pacing, I'll drop it and just finish the manga instead.

I didn't expect that I won't be the only one who'll be bothered by the huge eyes. Hahah!

In my opinion, I find the plot absurd. It's as if I'm watching a fan fiction. Like seriously? at the age of 16 your marriage will be decided? I'm feeling pessimistic about this but I hope I'm wrong because we all don't want to have a bad experience with anime right?

Also, I didn't like how late Misaki was. If you love someone, you shouldn't bear the idea of having them wait for you for hours!

I didn't think I will enjoy this episode this much
I love it
I like this premises and the context of low birth rate they tackling is a real issue in japan
The plot is pretty unique it caught my attention
I will definitely be watching it till the end
God I'm already shipping the main characters together They are so cute
The confession scene and the kissing scene were amazing Didn't though this will all happen in this first episode but I'm so happy that this happened
The soundtrack in this episode was so good
The character design might seem a bit weird but overall is okay
Can't wait to watch more :)

Was it just me that felt that entire romantic exchange felt really really forced and wrong. Even in terms of the ridiculous lengths anime will go to, to have two characters fall in love.
I'll keep watching to see where this goes, but my hopes aren't high.

So I just finished this first episode.

Can someone please tell me if this law/rule is limited to Japan? If this is the case, what happens if your destined/assigned spouse moves away to another country?

Now with that in mind, why didn't the two characters just move away? I know 16 yrs old is a restriction and limitation in itself but hey that's what parents are for!

Not a bad first episode! I like the concept and the commentary on the population crisis in Japan and I think it could be very interesting as the story progresses. I get the vibe of a little lighter version of Kuzu no Honkai where they anime touched on some very basic romance topics but in a very adult way. I think this series won't be as dark and depressing as Kuzu no Honkai but a very similar approach and with that it could be the best romance of the season or even possibly the 2017 year we will just have to wait and see if it can reach that type of potential.
I shall rule over the realms of anime and manga! Mwahhahahahaha!!!

I kind of like the premise but I think it's way too predictable and it's obvious how things are going to be. This series is definitely no "Kuzu no Honkai" but I have to agree with those who compare it to Nisekoi. The main protagonist is in love with Misaki who was his classmate in grade school. According to him, he has been in love with her ever since. He's not lying. He's really in love with her but his love kind of reminds me of Raku's love for Onodera. When his chosen partner shows up, I'm sure things will change and the main guy will start to waver between the two girls. For now, I don't really buy Yukari's love for Misaki and I find it quite shallow. He does love her but I see it as an infatuation more than love. If he really loves her, he will choose her at the end but I kind of doubt that. Well, I could be wrong but that is my two cents for now.

My question is how come Yukari received a text message with Misaki as his chosen partner but then right away the government officials show up and conveniently on the same place he and Misaki were in to hand him the envelope which had the name of someone else as his partner. Was the text message an error or did they change the name for some reason? I think there's something fishy going on especially that the government guy was looking at the lady while she was talking to Yukari in a suspicious way.
