Synopsis: 29-year-old Toda Suzuko (Becky) writes manga for girls. She has been completely unlucky in work and in romance lately. Christmas this year is finally around the corner. Even so, Suzuko believes that Jiromaru Hiroyuki (Hasegawa Tomoharu), the editor in charge, is the man of her destiny and takes a romantic interest in him. At this moment, she is introduced to an intriguing website called ‘Matching Love’ by Jiromaru. It is a matchmaking site which is able to find members of the opposite sex who have the same values about love just by answers to questions related to love. With Jiromaru’s encouragement, Suzuko makes the decision to plunge into the world of ‘Matching Love’ to find the person of her destiny. She and her assistant, Kudo Misato (Okamoto Rei), are baffled by the matching programme that starts all of sudden. After they nervously choose their answers, more than half of the people on the screen disappear before their eyes. In this programme is a system where people who do not have even one matching value about love will end up disappearing from the world. While Suzuko and Misato are shocked and bewildered by this system, an enigmatic man Iwasawa Ryutaro (Hiraoka Yuta) appears in front of them. He has been stranded inside this programme due to some circumstances. Once a person enters the world of ‘Matching Love’, he or she will not be able to get out until the end. Can Suzuko find the man of her destiny?
