More Than a Married Couple, But Not Lovers
Yakuin Jiro – Our male protagonist. Jiro is often referred to the virgin. He’s an introvert in love with his childhood best friend.
Watanabe Akari – Our female protagonist. Akari is opposite of Jiro. She is extroverted and confident.
Sakurazaka Shiori – Jiro’s love interest and childhood friend.
Tenjin Minami – Akari’s love interest.
Our four main characters go to high school together. In this bizarre world, high school students are paired with a student of the opposite sex and forced to live together as a married couple as part of their education. Our male protagonist, Jiro, is paired with the popular and outgoing Akari making him the envy of a lot of males. Jiro and Akari have only one thing in common. They’re both in love with other people. As they work through the assignment, feelings begin to change.
Fan service. If you like it, you will gravitate toward this anime. I will express that the fan service isn’t overdone but overtly there. Akari is well endowed and uses her endowment to tease the virgin Jiro. Akari is definitely sexualized, so if you’re into that kind of thing, you’ll enjoy that aspect. With the sexualization aside, the story is bizarre. High school kids living together pretending to be married for grades? That was almost too much for me to stomach. I know that anime isn’t exactly “real life,” but it was such an out-of-left-field concept. It, however, did not detract from the show. The phrase “opposites attract” applies to this anime. Despite the fan service and the bizarre concept of the show, it’s actually an enjoyable romcom.
