Engage Kiss Synopsis
Veyron City is a mega-metropolis created from the discovery of new sources of energy. Shuu, a young man who owns and runs a small business in the area, leads a meager life due to his reckless spending. Kisara, a girl who visits Shuu’s office and house because she is constantly worried about him. She works while attending high school in Veyron City, doing everything from clerical jobs to housework. Ayano, Shuu’s ex-girlfriend and co-worker at the company she previously worked for, is also worried about him. Thus begins the slapstick romantic comedy of three people in a slightly unusual relationship that takes place on an artificial island in the Pacific Ocean.
