Synopsis

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 in 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?

Koi to Uso is one of the worst paced manga I've ever read, yet interesting and intriguing enough to keep me reading all the way up to the current chapters.

But, I think that it wasted it's potential of greatness for the novelty of being a weekly series, as Manga Box manga tend to do.

[Some Spoilers Ahead]

The plot is the initial thing that gets you interested in this manga. In this alternative governmental structure of Japan, there is a government run arranged marriage policy that, like the name entails, arranges marriages for people 16 and older based on genetics.

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 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 despite read more
