Synopsis for Mamahaha no Tsurego ga Motokano Datta

A certain boy and girl, both in high school, became a couple, flirted with each other, argued over trifles, were frequently irritated with each other, and finally broke up upon graduation. And the two, Mizuto Irido and Yume Ayai, met again in the most unexpected way. It turns out his parents, both divorced, met, fell in love and married, making them now step-siblings. The ex-partner, aware of their parents' feelings, establishes a "sibling rule" in which whoever catches the eye of the other loses. But with so many contacts living together, can they really ignore each other?
