Have you ever wondered looking at someone saying ” Ah I wish I can fall in love with him/her or I wish he/she can become my life partner”?. Every human being in this world wants to fall in love with each other and wants to spend life with each other until the end but only few will become success. What if you find out that the person whom you loved for a long time loves you back and you were already engaged by that time? That feeling is worse right? On one hand there is a girl whom you love and wanted to spend life with and on the other hand there is a girl who is ready to marry you and thinks you are her world? So whom do you want to choose? It’s hard right? This anime is all about that.
In the near future, children who have turned 16 years old are assigned by the government to a partner based on compatibility calculation, in order to increase the country’s birth rate. Those who do not follow the government rules of going with their assigned partner suffer severe penalties. Yukari Nejima finally confesses his love to schoolmate and long-time crush Misaki Takasaki and discovers she has liked him back. However, when he turns 16, he is assigned another girl, Lilina Sanada. Lilina is not that thrilled about being assigned, and is very willing to let Yukari freely relate with Misaki so she can learn what being in love is really like. The story follows their adventures of the teens as they try to relate with one another while keeping up appearances with the government.
Yukari is unable to understand what to do as he may spoil the life of Lilina if he go against the government and reject the marriage and on the other hand he is unable to let go of Misaki’s feelings for him. In between we will come to know that Misaki told a lie and which is kept as a secret and I am still waiting to find out that secret which Misaki told in order to find her happiness.You will really feel bad for Lilina when she tries to encourage Yukari and Misaki’s relationship when she has feelings for Yukari. While watching this anime you don’t know whom to cheer up Lilina, Misaki or Yukari.
Even though we know that love is painful we still fall in love in a hope that we may find a happy ending. It is not that easy to tell someone how you feel when you know that it is not possible to stay with that person.
Sometimes, I wonder why people fall in love. Why do we abandon ourselves… to these painful and burdensome feelings? -Yukari Nejima
I really enjoyed the first half of the anime and felt little unsatisfied when Yukari was unable to decide between Misaki and Lilina and I am quite not happy with how it ended. This anime has one season of 12 episodes and the manga is ongoing. The anime haven’t covered the entire manga and I think it’s better to read the manga before watching the anime and I think you will enjoy reading the manga than watching the anime.😊
I give this anime 8.9/10.😁
