Sinopsis de Koi to Uso
In a future where Japan struggles to combat its low birth rate, the Japanese government implements the “Yukari Law,” a matching system based on genetic compatibility for all young people who reach sixteen years of age. Hailed as “the red strings of science,” it is a well-accepted policy that promises a fulfilling life to those who adhere to it and penalizes those who defy it.
At sixteen, time is short for Yukari Nejima, who decides to confess her love to the beautiful and popular Misaki Takasaki, whom she has loved for the past five years. To her surprise, Misaki responds to her feelings, but just as the couple share an intimate moment, Yukari receives her notice from the government. He will marry his assigned partner, the outspoken Ririna Sanada, and will now find himself thrown into a world of love and lies, while still trying to convince himself that his feelings are the right direction.
