Summary of Koi to Uso
In a future where Japan is struggling to cope with its low birth rate, the Japanese government is introducing the “Yukari Law”, a matching system based on genetic compatibility for all young people who reach sixteen years of age. Known as the “red thread of science”, it is a well-accepted policy that promises a full life to those who adhere to it and punishes those who confront it.
At sixteen, the time is short for Yukari Nejima, who decides to confess his love for the beautiful and popular Misaki Takasaki, whom he has loved for the past five years. Surprisingly, Misaki shares his feelings, but just as the two share a close moment, Yukari receives a notice from the government. He marries his assigned partner, the unbroken Ririna Sanada, and is now plunged into a world of love and lies, still trying to convince himself that his feelings are the right course.
