Seems like it could be an interesting series about relationships. I like the character designs.

I have to be honest I tried reading the first 2 chapters and it came off as some really crappy NTR doujin rip off. How is it really wholesome?

I can't tell if you're trolling, you don't know what NTR means, or you just haven't read this manga and are confusing it with another.

This isn't NTR for several reasons:
Neither are in a relationship with the other
Neither are in this situation by choice, it was random by the school
Neither of the couples in question do anything obscene or malicious.

NTR is whe the guy's girl is seduced by another man and ends up being fine with it. That isn't this manga's premise at all. Fūfu Ijō, Koibito Miman is about Jiro and Akari working to try and switch to their respective love interests while slowly figuring out they actually work really well together. It's a romcom.

On a certain level I can imagine looking at this premise and feeling that way. The two main characters have crushes on someone. Those people are in a marriage simulation with people other than themselves. So there's slight vibes you can stretch to pick up.

But at the same time I agree. Neither are actually in a relationship, plus this is just a simulation. Their crushes aren't actually getting married. Whether they end up with their crushes in the end or just fall in love with each other, that's not what I'd call NTR. And honestly does sound pretty wholesome and a solid romcom premise.
