On her 16th birthday Kobeni is told that she has a fiancé. As a kid she has been engaged by her grandfather with Hakuya. Now Kobeni is forced to live together with her fiancé and his little sister.

There are only 5 chapters released on the mange so there is not a lot of progress in the anime. We see Kobeni and Hakuya growing closer together and Kobeni tries to recall her memories of when she was a kid and met Hakuya.

In my opinion it is a rather ordinary romcom show like there are already many out there.
The main character, Kobeni, is rather plain as well and Hakuya is rather amusing with his expressionlessness but still not above the ordinary. HOWEVER, the biggest stars of the show are the little sister Mashiro and the always pervy big sister Benio who steal the spotlight whenever they appear. Most of the humor from the show derives from these two.

''I hate sundays, they are so boring.'' *Dances*

So overall it is a decent anime to watch in between some other shows.

***This is a spoiler free review***


Kawaii, kawaii, kawaii, kawaii, KAWAII, KAWAII!!! And Moe.

Story: 6/10

There is a story and I have to say even though it is just your run-of-the-mill high school drama, they did do a pretty good job injecting some of the unique nuisances that pertain to the non-human characters. The fast run down of the plot is that a side of Kobeni's family descend from a sort of animal/human hybrid race and it has been deemed that Kobeni must marry into the family. Thus begins her awkward adventures with her fiancé Hakuya and her aunt-in-law Mashiro. Things happen in the story but you see them coming a mile away. What really brings the show together is the humor that is present. The gags between Mashiro and Benio along with the sexual jokes pointed at Kobeni were pretty much "lol" worthy each time. This is also most definitely a kawaii heavy show as there are just way too many cute girls present.

All that said however the plot is generic feeling and the plot points are not groundbreaking.

Animation: 8.3/10

I really liked the animation, the character models looked really good, action scenes (though rare) were very fluid, and backgrounds looked great. The comedy scenes had the usual exaggerated plain looking style in order to bring out more laughs.

Overall a very good looking anime.

Sound: 9.5/10

The voice actors did a tremendous job. No I mean a spectacular job! They were so in tuned with their characters and a lot of scenes showed off how well they worked with the other characters in the show. The opening and ending for each episode was way too catchy and well done (the ending has been stuck in my head for around 3 months now). Music in-show was also very fitting.

Characters: 10/10

I don't normally give out perfect scores but the cast in this anime were so in tuned with each other. EVERY scene felt like it was worth watching for either an awkward teen love moment or a funny gag. The back and forth between Benio and Mashiro or the funny but extremely accurate insights of Mayura were a blast to watch. This is an anime that you do not watch for plot; you watch for the kawaii awesome cast interactions.

Overall: 8.5/10

Overall this show was an amazing watch. Yes the plot was a little dubbed down but the interactions between characters, the catchy soundtrack, amazing voice performance, and very well done animation had me anxiously waiting for each week's release. This is a muct watch if you like Moe and comedy.

Enjoyment: 9.4/10

Thanks for reading my review! If you liked my writing style, would like to see some other reviews, or just want to talk, please stop by my page!

I really liked the characters in this anime, but the plot was very slow. I stuck through it until the end, but I wasn't completely satisfied by the finale. I think the storyline is still funny and it was a nice watch. It just left me feeling that this anime could have been condensed to half the episodes it used. It's not something I would reccomend binging on. Rather it would be good to watch an episode when you just need something to relax to.

Short Review:

This anime will keep every viewers entertained. The blend of comedy and romance are surreal. The MC is cool and compose which takes the anime to a whole new level. This is worth your electric bills so stop worrying about your tuiton on school.

I'm not sure what this anime is..Is it a deadly disease that eats you from the inside out or is it a fetishist's dream?

From my experience thus far it's a bit of both.Now this review might contain spoilers,although i cannot see the reason why anyone would watch this apart from pure curiosity but then i'm sure people will watch it,cause it has a loli character and some moe vomit all over it.

And loli and vomit pretty much describe the entirety of this atrocity.For one it says somewhere that it's a romcom..Now for those who don't know what a romcom is it's romantic comedy..And i'm sad to report that on both fronts it has failed spectacularly.You know that feeling when you bring a lady back to your pad and starts taking her clothes off?Well you wouldn't cause you spent time watching shit like this LOL!!!!Imagine then taking her panties off and.........SHE HAS A FUCKING DICK!

If you're into that then by all means watch this anime.If you aren't then...Go away,run like the fucking wind.

Is it so bad Dion?Well yeah?For what other reason would i be here going nuts?Because it's fun?Do you find harming yourself fun?What are you,emo?

I cannot find anything redeeming..The characters are as cancerous as..Cancer?!You can die from that shit,you know!

The female MC is nothing special,the male MC is as bland as a bland wood plank,his sister the loli is annoying as fuck and the only ray of light in this whole mess is the female MC's sister...Mind you she is a siscon but that's not the reason i liked her..It's just that she's the only comedic element in here.

As for romance?That's where things go south,deep into the deepest circles of hell.The way they deliver the romance is idiotic to say the least.How can a romance evolve from nothingness when all you do is nothing to change that..The male MC rarely speaks only to utter 2-3 words and that's it..What's more,the female MC wasn't all that for the whole arrange marriage thingy...So..Yeah..They just wanted to release a shitty anime and hoped that people won't notice the pure stupidity surrounding this anime.

Honestly i don't care if the animation was done by the gods of art(it wasn't) or if the music was done by 4 hot brazilian chicks.All i care is if the anime is worth my time and this anime just isn't worth shit.

Wanna watch it and make a decision for yourselves?Fine by me,we live in a free world..Most of us do..
