Chapter 0 and chapter 1 and on are completely different, in fact I'm not even sure if chapter 0 and chapter 1 actually exist in the same universe or if chapter 0 is only a oneshot that isn't going to be a full fledged series.

Basically, chapter 0 is about
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Yuuichi Sadagana and how he lives in a country where marriage is voluntary, however it is strongly advised to accept a fixed partner that the government selects for you and that you are introduced to at 14 years old (partner selected for the sake of "the best genetic match-up", as to have the most capable offspring possible), the story mainly has him dealing with the pressure of accepting or rejecting his partner who is someone that he really, really didn't expected to meet in there in the least. Basically is a story about the weight of "true love" with a pretty obvious strange quirk (which is spoiled by the chapter title) and a situation where the views of society aren't 100% the same as ours

After chapter 0, the rest of the chapters are about Jun Kamiya and Mai Maeda. Personally I found more interesting chapter 0 than the other story, also chapter 0 is not conclusive per se, so perhaps more chapters about that stories are going to be written by the author in the future or something.

One shot

In my personal opinion, I think that the one shot is much better than the actual story. I was waiting for the manga to pick up where the one shot left off, but it did not and instead created a new boring one. I just could not get into the actual story at all. The one shot is like a 9 and the manga is a 6. It was really just kind of there.

Toothache-level sweetness

The oneshot, as stated by those below, is pretty good, but it's not something to write home about. I don't understand why the others glorify it, because the story isn't significantly better than the rest of the manga. Although the rest of the chapters are about an entirely new couple, I find it quite interesting as the relationship progression isn't as predictable as one might expect. The comedy is well-placed and in general it seems like the beginning of a heartwarming romance for multiple couples. Don't expect any overarching messages or extended angst periods.

I definitely would give it a go if you are even remotely interested in shounen romcoms. Expect lots of blushing and innocence.

don't stop because chap 1 isn't as good as chap 0. there are actually a lot of different stories. the first two are too sweet for people with diabetes, be wary. And the rest is deeper( just a little ) and frankly very cute. it keeps getting better. sad it ended in 4 volumes

Lovely artwork and a unique romantic premise well told. I would love to see more from this author. For a debut short series this is impressive and I'm surprised that it hasn't gotten the attention it deserves. This mangaka should be given opportunities to do more. I'm surprised its considered shounen however, the story is really within the shoujo genre despite the artwork style being more rounded.

Maybe I expected too much but the entire premise and the interesting part of the series wasn't utilized very well. The artist could've used the matchmaking gene element in a lot of interesting ways, but ended up just using it as a convenient way to get couples together fast. They were all pretty bland too, or maybe since I'm not a big fan of tasteless and nonsensical ecchi, I didn't like reading this at all. I actually skimmed through the chapters since it was a chore to read. If you like very simplistic, unrealistic, and cliche couples go ahead and read this. Or you could check out Tsurezure Children which also has multiple protagonists and couples but has much much better storytelling.
Oh, also the author's a fan of incest as two pairings out of four (I think?) were incestual pairings.

Good premise, dialogue erratic

Good premise. Oneshot was creepy, the continuation also creepy.

It would have been interesting to develop the characters (Jun and Mai) prior to the matching - have a scene where they discover each other during the matching - and show a slow progression of acceptance.

Instead we have a really erratic pace where everything just falls into place clumsily for the sake of completing the story/arc.

I don't like the pace, but I do like the art.
