Storyline

A third year university student in Kyoto, Japan feels like he's wasted his first two years of University on his current student club, having not yet found a girlfriend and having made only two friends: Ozu, who he deems to not have a single redeeming quality as a human being and Ms. Akashi, a stoic first-year engineering student. One night, the protagonist encounters a deity of matrimony during dinner. He tells him that Ms. Akashi will end up paired with either him or Ozu and it's up to him to take the opportunity that is dangling in front of him or not. Written by J M

Underwhelming and totally confusing.com
31 May 2019 | by IrishchatterSee all my reviews

I just thought the whole thing was rather boring because it was rather too complex to understand what's going on. The art wasnt that great either, it was actually rather sloppy and all over the shop which is likewise to its storyline.

I probably am going to be the only one that doesn't like this anime since I've seen positively great reviews on here as well also seen on MyAnimelist . Hey I'm not stopping anyone to not love this anime but it's just a pity that it didn't click with me, that's all..
