LOVE and LIES

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.

What the hell did I just watch????? That was my reaction as soon as I finished the last episode. Up to half-way I was (hopefully but, alas, wrongly) under the impression there was some kind of intricate plot still to be developed, so I was trying to guess what was REALLY going on and at the same time trying to figure out what were all the LIES the title of the anime unmistakably promised. Then at a certain point I started having the feeling that, wait a second, maybe there was REALLY nothing to it after all and there were NO lies worth mentioning.  Don't get me wrong, there is a plot that gets developed. So it's not complete rubbish. But really, it's based on a premise that I find insulting to my intelligence (which should have been pretty clear just by reading the synopsis, so: my bad) and the ending is just as much an insult to the viewers' intelligence as the insane premise. My suggestion is to just steer clear of this.  The characters are not only clichèd, their reactions are inconsistent and illogical. The male is the typical lead everyone falls - incomprehensibly - in love with, wishy washy and indecisive, with no back-bone and the emotional intelligence of a four-year-old. One girl is a tsundere and the other the sparkly eyed childhood love. The utter senselessness of their interactions made me blush and cringe countless times. The pacing is bad, after the first couple of episodes it gets repetitive, hence boring and slow.  To summarise: terrible plot, terrible characters, ridiculous ending.
