Lies are forbidden and love is doubly forbidden. In the near future, when young people in Japan turn sixteen, they are assigned a marriage partner by the government. People don't have to go through the trouble of looking for someone, and everyone accepts that the country will find a compatible partner to make them happy. Yukari Nejima is fifteen years old. He lives in a small corner of the country, and just can't seem to get ahead in life. Both academically and athletically he's below average. But within him, he hides a heart burning with passion! In this world in which love is forbidden, what will happen to him when he falls in love?

As someone who just binged all the chapters up to the most recent chapter 86 of Koi to Uso, let me just say this manga is very frustrating. It's good but it's also very frustrating...

The initial story is interesting. Age 16, you get assigned a marriage partner using genetic, psychological, and a variety of other data (Go Science!) in order to find a perfect match and combat the declining birth rates in Japan.

The art is fantastic, though the trade-off for that is that the chapters are extremely short.

The frustrating aspect is that the MC is so stubbornly in love with Grill 1 read more

This is my first review, so bear with me.

I believe the entire plot/story of this manga is semi-fresh. There has been a lot of movies/tv shows with the same backstory which makes this manga sort of predictable in terms of events. Besides the semi-cliche backstory, the story line is very entertaining.

I believe I lack the ability to judge the artwork. I'm heavily biased towards certain styles. I believe this artwork is really great for this style.

The characters are extremely relatable and awkwardly charming.

Overall, I believe this is a good read, if you enjoy manga's that "pull at your heart-strings." If you enjoyed the more popular read more
