In order to increase birth rates, Japan implements a capability calculation that assigns partners to young people when they turn 16. Those who deviate from their assigned partners are severely punished. Yukari Nejima has been in love with Misaki Tazaki since grade school, and finally confesses to her on his 16th birthday, only to find out he has been assigned to Ririna Sanada. Originally not thrilled, Ririna agrees to allow Yukari and Misaki to continue their illicit relationship in hopes of learning more about love. Things get complicated when Love and Lies start to intersect.
Seiki Takuno (Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches, Poco's Udon World, Sekkō Boys) worked with LIDEN FILMS again as the anime's director. Musawo launched the manga in DeNA's MangaBox app in both English and Japanese in August 2014, and within a month, it ranked as the app's most popular work with 3.5 million viewers.
Manga Entertainment will also release Digimon Frontier, the fourth season of Digimon: Digital Monsters, on DVD.
