Ridiculously long title. Will be henceforth referred to as OreShura. Also, the opening is misleading.
As a fair warning, this is likely a harem romantic comedy. So our main character is Eita. He’s a pretty sensible guy: focuses on his studies, stays clear of love trouble. Actually, he’s more like anti-love. He had been abandoned by both his parents, who each went away to live with their new partners. So in that sense, he sees romance as utter crap. He spends his high school life then studying in preparation for trying to go into med school. (A relative was kind enough to take him in).
But of course, that doesn’t make for an interesting show. So we add into the mix a childhood friend, whom he treats as kind of his little sister.
But then, that in itself isn’t very interesting. So let’s add another girl, who’s like the campus idol.
Eita seems to have bad luck in the sense that he gets transferred to a seat beside this girl, Masuzu, drawing unnecessary attention to himself. That, in effect, kind of ruins his peaceful life of studying.
Even worse, Masuzu nonchalantly asks to walk home with him one day, sending the entire class nuts.
Of course, Eita cries foul, and he manages to make Masuzu confess what she’s up to privately. She’s getting tired of all these confessions and invitations she’s been getting, so she plans to have Eita as a fake boyfriend. She figured that he was the best candidate for it, since apparently they’re both very anti-romance. Moreover, she has some blackmail material on him in the form if his journal notebook.
Naturally, Eita is forced to agree. And thus begins his new tumultuous life of being the fake boyfriend.
It’s a pretty fun show so far. I’m a sucker for romantic comedies, and as long as the show doesn’t do anything over the top, or anything stupid, I have a tendency to enjoy it. And so far so good for this. Even better, I like the main character. Not the typical useless yet nice and naive leads we usually get. We seriously need more smart characters. Seriously.
Points to Note: There’s two more girls to be added to the mix according to what I read.
