The anime stars high school student Jirō Yakuin (CV: Seiichiro Yamashita) who has a crush on his childhood friend Shiori Sakurazaka (CV: Saki Miyashita). However, his school has implemented a couples training (夫婦実習, Fūfu jisshū) program which pairs him up with a gyaru named Akari Watanabe (CV: Saori Ōnishi).

Jirō and Akari don't like each other first, but they agree to earn enough points so that they can switch partners to the people they really like.

The second PV also features the opening theme song True Fool Love by Liyuu. Meanwhile, the ending theme is Stuck on You by Nowlu.
