More Than a Married Couple, But Not Lovers manga
More Than a Married Couple, But Not Lovers or Fuufu Ijou, Koibito Miman TV anime is based on the manga series of the same name written and illustrated by Yuki Kanamaru.
The manga has been serialized in Kadokawa Shoten’s Young Ace magazine since March 2018. As of May 2022, eight tankobon volumes have been released.
The story follows Jiro Yakuin, a third-year high school student who hopes to partner with his classmate Shiori Sakurazaka for a course but instead gets paired with Akari Watanabe, someone polar opposite to him.
But as chance would have it, Shiori gets paired with Minami Tenjin, the person Akari has a crush on. And so starts this comedy as Jiro and Akari reluctantly decide to cooperate with each other in order to reach the top ten, which would give them the right to exchange partners if both couples agree.
