Hello! Thank you for Tuning in to Green Tea anime. Today I’m going to review More Than a Married Couple, But Not Lovers and let you know if it’s worth the watch or read. if you dont like to read or just prefer a video instead please check out my youtube channel GreenTea to watch the review.


More Than a Married Couple, But Not Lovers abbreviated Fuukoi is a Japanese manga series by Yūki Kanamaru. It has been serialized in Kadokawa Shoten’s seinen manga magazine Young Ace since March 2018, with its chapters collected and published in nine tankōbon volumes as of October 2022. An anime television series adaptation by Studio Mother aired in October 2022.


Third-year high school student Jirou Yakuin is in love with his childhood friend and classmate, Shiori Sakurazaka. Thus, he hopes to be paired with her for the “marriage practical”: their school’s practice of randomly selecting boy-girl pairs to live as pretend married couples while monitoring and rating them on how close they have gotten. Meanwhile, the lively Akari Watanabe wants to be assigned to her crush, the popular and good-looking Minami Tenjin. Much to their dismay, Jirou and Akari find out that not only have they been paired together, but so have Shiori and Minami! Determined to be with their crushes, Jirou and Akari strive to earn as many points as possible, as the top 10 pairs earn the right to switch their partners—so long as both couples agree.


So before I start the review just know the anime is yet to be over but i got as far as 5 episodes that’s the amount out at the time. But I still have a lot to say I really enjoyed the show so far I like the setting and how they are forced by the school to live together it feels like a different take on the old anime trope. I enjoy good written love stories and this really makes you feel like your falling in love too because as they go through the story you’re finding out more about the characters just like they are. If you want that warm feeling in your chest this anime really gives it to you especially on the 3rd episode that’s when I felt it the most. If you have a partner I definitely recommend to watch this with them it’s a great couple show. I personally like the gyaru girls who are secretly nice cliche and the main heroine really plays that card well. I honestly enjoyed this anime in dub more because sometimes they will say something in English slang that kills me like it’s so funny one of the scenes he says he got lost in the sauce and I connected with that so much. The love square feels like Toradora! But by no means is that a bad thing. If you want a good new RomCom this should definitely be up there on the list near number one to watch. I’ll give the anime a 8.5/10 I really enjoyed the show overall.

Thank you for reading please donate if you enjoyed the review let me know in the comments what you think about More Than a Married Couple, But Not Lovers do you hate it or enjoy it.
