Premise[edit]

On a snowy winter night, Nasa Yuzaki, a boy who was made fun of during his childhood because of his peculiar name, encounters a beautiful girl after he received his practice exam grades for high school. When he tries to approach her, he gets hit by a truck due to his lack of attention. However, the girl saves him, and Nasa miraculously follows her at a bus stop and proceeds to confess his love for her. The girl, Tsukasa Tsukuyomi, agrees to become his girlfriend, but only if they are married first. Nasa quickly agrees to her demand and then passes out, waking up in a hospital. Nasa becomes heartbroken when he cannot find her again, until his 18th birthday, where Tsukasa suddenly shows up at his doorstep. Tsukasa goes inside with a marriage form, starting their relationship and their marriage.

Voiced by: Junya Enoki,[5] Umeka Shōji (child)Ep. 1 credits (Japanese); Zach Aguilar[6] (English)
An everyday genius, Nasa grew up ridiculed for his strange name, similar to the American space agency NASA, although his parents meant for his name to reference the starry sky. He has a meeting with fate when he was caught in a terrible accident but was saved by Tsukasa. Declaring his love for her, on the day they met, Tsukasa agrees on the condition that he marries her to which Nasa immediately responded with an unshakable "yes". Two years later, Nasa reunites with Tsukasa carrying a marriage form which they turn in to the bureau, legalizing their relationship. Since marrying her, he becomes incredibly awkward around her, somewhat clingy to an extent because he is worried she would disappear on him again, but does his best to make her happy.

After saving Nasa, she agrees to his confession only if he will marry her. Disappearing for two years, she returns to Nasa's side with the paperwork necessary to legalize their relationship. During the early chapters, she makes a point of the legal name change she underwent upon becoming Nasa's spouse, initially teasing him with her now being named Tsukasa Yuzaki. After she marries Nasa, she begins showing new parts of herself, such as her massive love for movies and manga. She also does not like the idea of spending a lot of money for necessities. Later on, her thoughts while observing Nasa makes it clear she loves him for being such a pure hearted, kind soul. When Tsukasa got to meet Nasa's parents, his father privately thanked her for saving his life as both gave their blessings to their newlywed life. Throughout the story, layers upon layers of mystery are laid upon her and there have been many comparisons of her similarities to Princess Kaguya. The mystery is finally resolved with the revelation that she is the daughter of a character from that story, given immortal life through the elixir of immortality which her father was ordered to burn.

But before he was set to take the entrance exam, he was hit by a truck when he crossed the street trying to speak to a girl named Tsukasa Tsukuyomi. However, Nasa survived due to her intervention. After regaining consciousness, Nasa chased after Tsukasa, wanting to go out with her as gratitude for saving his life, and Tsukasa agreed only if they got married when they were old enough to do so. After getting discharged from the hospital, he took the entrance exam the following year, but decided to work instead of attend high school, hoping to come across Tsukasa.

While Chitose argues with the maids, Nasa slips out and tries to hide, but is found by Charlotte. While trying to get Nasa to submit, Charlotte accidentally breaks the nitrogen casing that preserves Tsukasa's precious moon rock, and Nasa uses his knowledge to fix it temporarily.
