It was announced that Musawo's manga from Manga Box's Koi to Uso will get a TV anime adaptation for Summer 2017. The anime will be directed by Seiki Takuno (Udon no Kuni no Kiniro Kemari) and produced by LIDENFILMS.

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 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? (Source: Manga Box)

Koi to Uso is simultaneously published in Japanese, Chinese, and English (as Love and Lies) on DeNA's Manga Box app since August 10, 2014. Kodansha Comics USA has licensed the series in print and will release the first volume on August 22, 2017.

I remember trying to read the manga and it's absolutely garbage, don't even try.

I'm skeptical whether do they have enough content for the anime or not. 22 chapters so far....... doesn't sound like a good piece of news.


At least one thing I can be assured of: It won't be rushed since there isn't even enough content to begin with.

There is no need to argue in the comments..
It is pretty similar to nisekoi if we're honest; but this doesn't necessarily mean it's the "rip off". It has some different characteristics but despite people saying the girl the mc will chose is not obvious, wasn't that also the case for nisekoi. We were pretty sure he would chose chitoge but not certain.

This type of stuff, I'd rather have them showing how they got to this point. I mean, surely people would protest lying and love (of all fucking things) being illegalised. I'd much rather have that than a forbidden love story.

why is everyone so negative about this show lmao
it may look like a nisekoi ripoff but it's way better imo and unlike most harems, the mc actually kisses one of the girls like 5 chapters in smh

still, mixed feelings with overall series... the premise is interesting, but plot is weak AF... the character also nice, but not mixed together...

but still, am i the minority who ship MC with nisaka yuusuke? (YES, GAY FTW!!!)


omg no, i ship them too <3

all of them already popular without anime... there is no reason to animate them to begin with...


Terra Formars was 10th in top selling manga without anime even being released. that's very popular, and yet it got anime adaptation

terra formars before anime was 70K per volume IIRC... it's after anime it become hit...

anime adaptation is hit or miss... if they don't see high possibility to become succesful or high TV ratings, especially for high costing action packed series like this, it's too risky... and industries will automaticaly avoid something like that, but still, there is always exception to the rule...

I was planning on reading the manga so I’m not sure what to expect from this as now. It seems decent enough (or at least hope so).

I gotta say that Misaki and Lilina’s eyes are pretty frightening on that PV... those eyes will eat your soul if you stare at them long enough. I don't like them...

I found odd how they didn’t show the male MC in the PV... Instead, lets just have him as a voice-over... I mean, he is just the MC these 2 girls will love and fight over, so it’s no big deal. Yea, forget the forgettable.

I’m neutral about the director... I didn’t like how he handled Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo, but will see.

Read a few chapters.. Watched the PV.. Lol I'm not going to miss anything. Garbage. I'll pass, thou I'm sure if it gets popular, the shipping war will be hilarious just like in Nisekoi.

No it does not....
Looks like they're using the "love isn't allowed" premise as an excuse to have a lame ecchi wannabe harem love triangle, and when real cultures exist that kind of actually do the same thing with arranged marriages, it comes across as not only trashy and cheap, but insulting.



Yeah, LOOKS, but that doesn't mean that any of that is true. Actually give it a chance before you shit on it.

Sounds kind of interesting but the anime-basic MC and the line " But within him, he hides a heart burning with passion!", as well as the fact that the cover only shows two girls who at first made me assume this was a yuri, with one's tits literally the same size as her head, really turns me off.

EDIT: wow that PV looks like complete trash.

You people are so close-minded.

> Calling others close minded because they avoid things they don't like
Only tsundere fags can enjoy that kind of anime



You're both close-minded because you're avoiding it and calling it bad for basically no reason.
