The declining birth rate in Japan has led to a significant decrease in the sparkly innocence of human children, a vital energy source for the magical world. With businesses closing due to the shortage, a resolution is passed: a lasting romance will be created for humans who prioritize their hobbies or careers over falling in love.

Before this policy is enforced nationwide, the magical fairy Riri selects high school student Anzu Hoshino as a preliminary test subject. Primarily preoccupied with her video games, beloved pet cat, and her obsession with chocolate, Anzu is the perfect candidate. Unfortunately for Riri, Anzu is vehemently against this idea and actively works to thwart the magical world's vain attempts at forcing her into a romance.

Even with her distractions confiscated, Anzu stubbornly tries to evade her new predetermined fate, only for it to backfire when she collides with Tsukasa Kazuki, a hot guy from her school. Now unable to avoid the boy she had not even noticed before, Anzu wonders if her sabotage tactics will prove to be futile.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

This manga was an interesting read. I thought of it as a parody of shoujo romance tropes and in some ways it is. The plot is Anzu loves her cat way too much, loves video games, and chocolate. Her parents end up going away due to 'reasons' and from there a magic being/fairy with the goal of a project has setup scenarios 'or so it seems' to get her to find love. If she does I won't say. If you think the fairy is like Be Gata H Kei annoying, I'd say they could but they aren't narrating/repeating what event happened in that way. They ...

A romance school anime where the main character doesn't want to have a romance? How cliche can this story be. Well no, the truth is that it comes with many surprises.

-The story is very good, there are no time skips and everything is fluid where you don't have any boring moments.
-The plot itself is very simple, but the protagonist is in charge of turning everything around so that it becomes more complex and you don't see what is going to happen coming.
-I don't consider it to be a unique story, even what "has to happen" is very predictable, but as I mentioned, the protagonist breaks ...

Preliminary (2/39 eps)
It seems that Japan's birth rate problems are caused by chocolate, games, cats and people who live theirs life in peace... nice plot.
Speaking of plot, the author needs an annoying magical character to justify every encounter between characters because she is not able to create organic ones, so... nope.
The art style is rather simple and boring in details, a matter of improvement.
The only good thing is the protagonist who reflects quite well someone in the same situation.
If you're looking for a series that generates cliché situations in forced ways because a crappily drawn creature wanted it that way, you're going to love it, sorry.
