MORE THAN A MARRIED COUPLE BUT NOT LOVERS SEASON 2: RENEWAL STATUS+ RELEASE DATE PREDICTIONS

More than a Married Couple but Not Lovers Season 2, is it renewed?

High school is that stage of life where we’re not really sure what comes next. We have some idea of where we’re going after this, whether it’s college, a part-time job, or staying off time, and figure it all out.

The one thing which remains a looming question is what kind of love life will one get and who will be the chosen one? Sadly, high school doesn’t provide a prescribed answer to the question.

But what if your high school had a marital practice exam in which you spend your final year living with someone of the opposite sex randomly chosen by your school.

You’re watched and graded over how well you perform as a couple together; do you fall in love out of convenience, or do real feelings form throughout the entire year together. 

Welcome to More than a Married Couple but Not Lovers, which by its namesake aptly describes the rom-com by Yūki Kanamaru.

The story follows a shut-in and introvert, Jirouu Yakuin, who prefers playing video games to form meaningful relations. The only person Jirou has feelings for is his childhood crush, Shiori Sakurazaka, who he hopes to get paired with in the school’s special program aiming to develop social skills between students.

Unfortunately for Jirou, instead of Shiori, he gets paired with Akari Watanabe, a gyaru who is gorgeous, confident, and extroverted. 

Similarly, Akari was hoping to be paired with school idol Minami Tenjin but on realizing neither Jirou wants his company, both work together to score enough points to switch partners. 

Although initially averse towards each other, Jirou and Akari get on well and consequently begin to harbor feelings in the pretentious relationship.

Complications begin to occur when Shiori reveals her love for Jirou, and Tenjin explains to Akari that she is in love with Jirou.

Once an introvert, hikikomori now has his childhood crush and the school s’ beauty falling for him. Can Jirouu decide who he likes the most is the central plot of the show.

Currently, the first season of More than a Married Couple but Not Lovers is on air, but fans have already started wondering whether a second installment is on the cards or not.
