More Than a Married Couple, But Not Lovers is based on the manga series by Yūki Kanamaru.
Studio Mother is in charge of anime production.
The anime tells the story of Jiro Yakuin and Akari Watanabe, who are paired with each other in a high school couples simulation. They are then forced to live together as a pseudo couple, with the top couples in the class allowed to exchange partners.
As both Jiro and Akari wanted to be paired with the people in their class that they have crushes on, they work hard.
But, as the simulation continues, they find themselves liking each other more and becoming closer because of it.
Mark your calendars for the More Than a Married Couple, But Not Lovers premiere.
