My Plain-looking Fiance is Secretly Sweet with Me
“Onii-san, congratulations on your marriage. This person is your bride.”
“M-my name is Watanae Yuuka… I’m in the same class as you…”
My name is Sakata Yuuichi. I’m in my 2nd year of high school.
Due to my parents’ circumstances, I’m suddenly getting married..?
Furthermore, my partner is a plain girl, Watanae-san.
During my 3rd year of middle school, I went through a bad experience. Ever since then, I’ve only been interested in 2D heroines. There’s absolutely no way I’d ever be interested in a 3D girl.
That was what I thought, but…
“…Well then, who’s your favorite heroine right now?”
Turns out, she was actually an otaku and she becomes very talkative when you get to know her.
She’d always happily engage in our conversations. She showed me things I’d never have expected from a girl in my class.
“Err, since we’re going to be living together… Is it okay if I call you Yuu-kun?”
And, the moment I let my guard down, she’d instantly try to shorten the distance between us.
“Just between you and me, I’m actually the voice actress for Yuuna Izumi from 『Alice Stage』. Thank you for always supporting me!”
It’s a secret from everyone else, but it turns out she’s actually my favorite heroine’s voice actress?!
I am only interested in 2D heroines!
But, Yuuka’s true self, which she only shows when she’s alone with me, is nothing but cute!
This is the story of me and Yuuka, starting as fiancees. A heartwarming and chaotic romcom!

1 LN Volume (Ongoing)
Fujimi Fantasia Bunko
This sounds great and very cute. I want this
has lots of potential!
Thankfully JNC does have connections at Fujimi Fantasia Bunko, but the only properties they've gotten there are really old or stalled. I would love for JNC to get a slife-of-life without supernatural stuff from Kadokawa :)

Oh my goodness this sounds cute/interesting.
I'd be down for a cute, fluffy romcom series
Yes, all of the romcoms. Especially the ones that start out with romance? No haremerino? Just plain, wholesome lovin'?
@rawon Man, and you mentioning "No harems, just romcom" immediately makes me think of My Love Story. Is there a manga or something of that one? Asking for
@thegrimlich I genuinely don't know, but would like to! What's "My Love Story" anyway?
(Idly, the title of this series should probably be "fiancée," since it's referring to the girl and girls get an extra "e" for...reasons.)
@rawon My Love Story is this:
It's the story of Gouda Takeo, a 1st-year High School student who's so big everyone thinks he's in college, and his girlfriend... who he met in a fashion similar to how Momo met Hime in "Are You OK With A Slightly Older Girlfriend". Like, the only difference is that instead of implying the guy was groping a man, Gouda grabbed the guy's hand and wound up getting suspended for punching the guy after he said the girl deserved it... while in the presence of a police officer. It's the story of their relationship, and I first learned of it through the anime.
So now I've got three series I've got to purchase through Viz I guess, since Wikipedia says Viz has the manga license.
People seem to really like this one (I know I heard middling things early about volume 1, but maybe it gets better as you go cause reception seems pretty good rating wise from English folks able to read it). I'd be down to try it.
An another classic 'plain' heroine that even when she's supposed to look plain still looks top tier.
I guess this is our version of Hollywood homely trope lol.
Still, I do like me.some fluffy romance so id go for this
The third volume is set to release on September 18th, 2021.
@shipteaser Maybe it's "plain" as in a more staid personality, rather then her actually being of average appearance?
Because yeah, just sticking glasses on a pretty girl doesn't make her not pretty.

Seems interesting and fluffy enough.

This sounds super cute. Though I just wish it was a natural relationship rather than the cliché arranged marriage from your parents.
