Synopsis

When timid young maths genius Kenji Koiso is asked by older student (and his secret crush) Natsuki to come with her to her family's home for a 'summer job', he agrees without hesitation. Natsuki's family have gathered to celebrate the 90th birthday of the spunky matriarch of the family, Sakae and Kenji soon discovers that his job is to pretend to be Natsuki's fiancé! But when he receives a strange maths conundrum on his phone, his masterful solution ends up causing a bizarre parallel world to collide with Earth, and it's up to Kenji and his new 'family' to put reality back in order.
