I wanted to hold off on putting my views on this anime down and with 3 episodes out, it feels like a safe enough time. This is one of those anime that need a little time to be understood properly. Now that I see where this anime is going, I feel comfortable enough to comment on it. Fuufu Ijou Koibito Miman is quite an easy anime to misunderstand. But once you get down to it, it could be quite good.
So welcome back to another one of my “first impressions” articles, today we are talking about Fuufu Ijou Koibito Miman. Before I even get into my views on it, let me start off by saying this anime is not for everyone. A lot of people don’t like this kind of anime and to be fair, I understand where they are coming from. But, if you’re fine with stuff like Domestic na Kannojo or Kuzu no Honkai, you’ll be fine with this as well. So let’s start right away.
What do I think of the anime so far?
Ok, first off Fuufu Ijou Koibito Miman has a very “out there” kind of story. Like seriously, what kind of school pairs together boys and girls as a “practice for married life”? No, I am not kidding that is exactly what happens in this anime. And as you may expect, both the MCs aren’t paired with the people they like, instead, the people they like are a pair. So yeah, they “work together” to maintain their fake relationship so that they can get a good score and switch partners. Things get complicated from there. Hence, the title of the anime.
So after the initial shock of the plot/setting, Fuufu Ijou boils down to characters. And it has some really good characters so let’s start with it. First off is our MC, Yakuin Jirou. He’s somewhat of a creep at times but he’s at least honest, straightforward forward, and shows signs of growth unlike a certain other rom-com MC. Next up is Watanabe, our 2nd MC, and because of whom I started the anime. She’s exactly as she looks, typical gyaru on the surface, a softie at heart.
Going forward, I’d like to more character development for Shiori and Tenjin though. Especially Tenjin, he’s portrayed as the “main rival” but basically has nothing to his character than being an ikemen. Seriously, even Yakuin’s best friend Kamo has more character than him. The main pair though is definitely the center point of this anime and they’re quite well-written.
All in all, Fuufu Ijou Koibito Miman is quite an interesting anime. It is not for everyone but, those who can handle stuff like this are sure to find enjoyment in it. For now, I’ll score it a fair 6.5 or 7 out of 10. Of course, this rating will change depending on how the anime goes from here.
That is about it for now. Of course, being a Keqing simp since 1.3 I really appreciate Watanabe and all her steamy scenes. So I very much do like her. Let me know what you guys think in the comments though. I’m sure this anime will elicit all kinds of takes. With that said though, I will take my leave here. I’m a bit behind schedule. See ya!!
