Now, let me introduce you to the school from the More Than a Married Couple manga, where students are trained to have a happy married life.

How so? Well, a girl and a boy are paired to live together as spouses, and marks are provided based on how amiably they stay.

More Than a Married Couple, But Not Lovers, the weird shoujo manga in question, has been greenlit for an anime adaptation. So, you’ll be able to know all about this bizarre ‘married couple training’ soon.

Check out the latest teaser visual of the anime where the protagonists, Jirō Yakuin and Akari Watanabe are shown in dynamic poses. The visual oozes the personality of these two as Akari is an extroverted gyaru while Jirō is an introverted gamer who has only ever dated 2D women.

Both the protagonists have vastly different personalities and their own crushes. Naturally, their training did not start well.

If you ask me, the pairing seems absolutely horrible, people are getting paired with the ones they hate, and they can’t even change partners until they are ranked at the top.

Thus, Jirou and Akari’s best bet is to act like a super clingy couple and trick everyone so that they can rank and change partners as soon as possible.

Studio Mother is animating the series and has just revealed the main staff members for this project:

Now all that’s left to do is wait for the trailers to drop as the release date creeps up on you. Can this unlikely couple fake their way out of this training? Or will they actually start liking each other?
