Synopsis from Koi to Uso

In a future where Japan is struggling to combat its low birth rate, the Japanese government is implementing the “Yukari Law,” a genetic compatibility-based matching system for all young people over the age of 16. Hailed as “the red thread of science,” it is a universally accepted policy that promises fulfilling lives for those who adhere and punishes those who oppose it.

At 16, time is running out for Yukari Nejima, who decides to profess her love for the beautiful and popular Misaki Takasaki, whom she has loved for five years. To her surprise, Misaki reacts to her feelings, but just as the couple is sharing an intimate moment, Yukari receives her message from the government. He will marry his assigned partner, the outspoken Ririna Sanada, and now plunge into a world of love and lies while still trying to convince himself that his feelings are the right way to go.
