Anzu is forced to participate in the Wizarding World’s project to reverse population decline when the wizard Riri suddenly appears. This romantic comedy explores what happens to Anzu when she is surrounded by attractive men instead of spending her life engrossed in her three passions: video games, chocolate and cats. Anzu is firm in her assertion that she never wanted to live in a dating simulation game. She meets a handsome guy who is so popular it hurts, a clean and athletic childhood friend, and a handsome rich young man who is naive about the outside world. Upon meeting Anzu, they all begin to change gradually.
