What is My Stepmom’s Daughter Is My Ex about?
When they were in middle school, Mizuto and Yume were a normal couple and despite the occasional argument between the pair, they were content to stay together until high school. Then, they decided to break up and lead separate lives…for all of about two weeks.
Sadly, for their social and love lives, it turns out that their parents are getting married to each other! For Mizuto, “What was supposed to be a sanctuary of peace where I could avoid ever seeing her again has become a living nightmare!”
“Everywhere I look, I see her—in my house, in my school, in my class. There’s no escape! She even claims that she’s the older sibling. Like hell she is! But I won’t lose to her. After all, I’m the older brother in this new family situation. That’s right, we’re family now. No matter how much we may have thought we loved each other before, we saw one another’s true colors and realized we weren’t meant for each other. That’s why even though we may keep up a buddy-buddy sibling act for the sake of our parents, things will never go back to the way they used to be.” – Synopsis, via Anime News Network.
