Kids fall in love and then are assigned different marriage partners by the government.
It’s a pretty good adaptation of a great manga. I do like the manga better— the show seemed to take its time, while the manga felt like a dramatic rollercoaster ride. But my favorite part of the manga still carried over, how it calls into question the entire premise of star-crossed lovers. It’s a show about love where no one is truly able to understand one another’s feelings, largely because they aren’t able to understand their own feelings. Assuming they have any true feelings in the first place, that is.
It’s also rare in that it’s the kind of love triangle where it’s really hard to pick a side. I’m leaning towards team Riri but at the same time I suspect what’s best for Riri is for her to lose in the love triangle. It’s that kind of show.
