More Than a Married Couple, But Not Lovers Plot
Jiro Yakuin is a high school student who has a crush on his childhood sweetheart Shiori Shakurazaka. However, his life takes a different turn when the school carries out a couple of training programs for the students.
During the mandatory “Couple Practical” course for third-year high school students are kept under video surveillance using which they are graded. Every candidate must demonstrate that they have the skill set to live with a partner of the opposite sex in harmon
Jirou Yakuin was hoping to partner with Shiori Sakurazaka.
Unfortunately, random chance brought his slightly subdued self into contact with the polar opposite, the Gyaru Akari Watanabe. Akari on the other hand hoped to be paired with her crush Minami Tenjin.
Their hopes are doubly dashed when they find out that Shiori and Minami are assigned together. Thus, they reluctantly decide to cooperate to reach the top ten, which would give them the right to exchange partners if both couples agree.
