In Japan, the birth rate has declined to a point where the country's future is in jeopardy. So to help solve the problem, government official Hizuki has chosen a school to test a new, totally reasonable approach: each student will be implanted with nano explosives that will detonate if they don't pair off by summer's end! For Daichi, who'd rather be dating his 2-D girlfriend, and eight other students, the decree is too muchof a hassle and they refuse to participate, escalating the situation even further! Now, thanks to their defiance, Hizuki adds extra deadlines and challenges to ensure that the nine will somehow fall for each other, lest they become literal dust in the wind. But with an odd number of students, whose loveless life will become a mushroom cloud of despair?
As japan is going through some serious birth decline, the government decides to take some radical actions.
That's the basic plot of both series, so if you though it was interesting when you were reading one of them, the other one might prove to be just right up your allay.
Both series give that Truman Show vibe and I'm sure that's more than enough reason to recommend them to each other. Also both have a high school setting of sorts (actually it doesn't really resemble a high school manga at all).
