Summary Edit

Raku Ichijō and Chitoge Kirisaki have known each other since kindergarten, yet never seem to get along—in fact, they are near-complete opposites of each other. When they are forced by their fathers to fake being in a relationship for the sake of their gangs, which are on the brink of war, they have no choice but to resolve their differences for the sake of peace, which leads them to face an incident that happened between them years ago and is the reason they are at odds now.
