One hot, midsummer’s day, Shun Nanami’s sister drowned to death. It’s a memory he will never forget, which has become lodged forevermore in his heart. He decides from then on to live in her stead, to make up for the life she never got to lead.
Time passes, his agonizing childhood behind him, and he currently spends his days attending school like always. Then, another sultry summer comes around, reminding him ever-so-slightly of his sister once again…
Just then, he hears a piano’s melody far off in the distance–a tune she always adored. He follows this music to its source, only to find his sister standing there.
“Please take care of me from now on, Onii-chan.”
His little sister passed away long ago, but now, an android who looks exactly like her has appeared before him, “TRINO.”
Sweet Young Bride ~ Our Married Life Begins
This is a story of a government-sponsored marriage program that has become a normal and accepted part of everyday modern life. Average people like Kouta, who figures he’ll have to search for a wife of his own, really want to take advantage of this program. One day, he is contacted by agents from the Program, announcing that he’s been selected to participate. He’s introduced to a girl named Hazuki Izayoi, the two are quickly married, and now they start their newlywed life together.
What kind of life awaits Kouta and Hazuki, who have married each other as complete strangers?

Tamamori came to Tokyo with his sights set on getting accepted to the Imperial University. However, he doesn’t pass the entrance exam, and is so undisciplined and wrapped up in endless fantasies that he’s kicked out of his boarding house after only two years. Through a stroke of luck, Tamamori begins to live and work at Umebachidou, a used book store. There, he enjoys whiling away his time as a “student preparing for entrance exams” and taking advantage of friends who are also from his hometown. But one right after the other, mysterious deaths befall those friends and, realizing he’s been repeating the same rainy three days over and over again, Tamamori finds himself racing throughout Jinbochou to save them.
In this pop-occult mystery that surrounds the deaths of his friends… What is real, and what is a hallucination?
