Love Against All Odds
The story of Tonikaku Kawaii follows Nasa Yuzaki, a determined young man aiming to make a name for himself in the history books. Topping the national mock exam and setting his sights on an esteemed preparatory school, Nasa believes he has his entire life planned out. However, fate has other plans. One snowy night, Nasa's eyes are captivated by an unparalleled beauty across the street. Drawn to her, he attempts to approach, only to be startled by an oncoming truck. Miraculously, the girl's quick actions save his life.
Bleeding beside an ambulance, Nasa watches as the girl walks away under the moonlight, reminiscent of Princess Kaguya ascending to the moon. Determined not to let this chance encounter end, Nasa pushes his injured body to pursue her and boldly confesses his feelings. Surprised by his audacity and unwavering determination, the girl accepts his confession under one condition: they can only be together if he marries her.
