The anime More Than a Married Couple, But Not Lovers is taking shape, with a preview of the opening and a new trailer.
The main trailer of the anime More Than A Married Couple, But Not Lovers was released this Friday via the project’s official website (Fuufu Ijou, Koibito Miman).
This trailer features a preview of the series’ opening song, “TRUE FOOL LOVE,” performed by singer Liyuu. For the final song, Nowlu interprets the title “Stuck on you.”
As a reminder, the anime will be released in Japan on October 9, 2022!
Takao Kato, in collaboration with director Junichi Yamamoto, is working on the project at the animation studio MOTHER. The script is written by Naruhisa Arakawa, and character design is done by Kobayashi Chizuru. The music is composed by Yuri Habuka and is directed by Akuzawa Naoko.
The anime More Than a Married Couple, But Not Lovers is based on Kanamaru Yuki’s eponymous manga, which has been published in Japan since March 2018 in KADOKAWA’s Young Ace magazine.
Jiro Yakuina, a third-year high school student, and three of his classmates: Shiori Sakurazakahis best friend, with whom he has been secretly in love for many years, Minami Tenjinone of the most popular boys in school, and Akari Watanabethe hottest girl in school.
All students must participate in an extraordinary ongoing assessment during their final year of study, which consists of living for a year with another student of the opposite sex in order to form the “ideal couple.”
Points are awarded to couples based on certain criteria, thanks to an automated system installed in the houses, points that obviously count in the year’s final grade.
Furthermore, the 20 students who form the 10 best couples in the school in the monthly ranking are given the option of changing partners by selecting a new one!
During the first couple draw, Shiori is paired with Minami, much to Jiro’s chagrin, while the latter is paired with Akari, who would have preferred to be with Minami.
Jiro and Akari quickly realise that there is only one way to turn the situation to their advantage: live together for a month like the most perfect lovers, in order to change partners…
This anime is based on Kanamaru Yuki’s manga of the same name.
