Yuki Kanamaru's More Than a Married Couple, But Not Lovers Romantic Comedy Manga Gets Anime



It has been confirmed that an anime adaptation of Yuki Kanamaru’s romantic comedy manga Fuufu Ijou, Koibito Miman / More Than a Married Couple, But Not Lovers is now in the works. How and when it will be distributed is currently unknown. The manga has been serialized in KADOKAWA’s Young Ace magazine since April 2018 and its latest seventh tankobon volume is set to be released in Japan on December 3, 2021. 


Its story is set in Seisun Academy, a high school where students are forced to live as a pseudo couple as a part of a curriculum. Jiro Yakuin is paired with Akari Watanabe, who is the complete opposite of him, in the traditional “marital training” class. At the suggestion of Akari, they start living as a pseudo couple in order to get the right to exchange pairs, which is given to the top performers. They practice various activities such as the first kiss in order to earn points, but as they come to understand each other’s personalities and thoughts, they unintentionally become closer and come to like each other.


With a congratulatory illustration, the manga author wrote on Twitter, “It’s all thanks to your support! I really, really appreciate it!” and “I’m so happy to see everyone from Seishun jumping out of the manga panels and shining in the new stage of anime! I’m going to do my best to make Fuukoi a work that you can love for a long time without forgetting my initial intentions, so please give me your warm support!”
