Synopsis for Kin no Kuni Mizu no Kuni
A long time ago, there were two neighboring nations that were on bad terms: “Your nation’s grass gets into mine every day.” “The sound of futons being banged around in your nation is annoying.” They argued over such boring topics as these. In the end, they went to war over the dog shit incident, and in the confusion, the gods intervened and brokered a truce between the leaders of the two nations. This is what they said to say: Land A will send the most beautiful girl in the land to Land B, And land B will send the smartest boy in the land to Land A, and they will both get married.
