Tonikaku Kawaii Synopsis
Nasa Yuzaki is determined to leave his name in the history books. By ranking first in the mock national exam and targeting a distinguished high school, you are confident that you have your whole life planned. However, fate is a fickle lover. On the way home one snowy night, Nasa’s eyes fall on unparalleled beauty across the street. Spellbound, Nasa tries to get close to her, only to be surprised by an oncoming truck.
Fortunately, his life is saved due to the girl’s quick action. Bleeding beside an ambulance, he watches the girl walk away under the moonlight, reminiscent of Princess Kaguya setting off for the moon. Refusing to let this chance encounter end, she forces her crippled body to chase her and asks her out. Surprised by his recklessness and sheer resolve, the girl accepts his confession on one condition: they can only be together if he marries her!
