Yukari lives in a society where love is forbidden. When you turn 16, the government will assign your marriage partner. Yukari is an average student who doesn’t even stand out enough to be bullied. He’s in love with Misaki, the most popular girl in school. There’s just one problem: He’s 15, one year away from receiving his government-assigned marriage partner.
