Goro, who saw the news on the internet news, was worried about Ai. One day, a certain girl appears when Goro examines him as usual.

Geniuses’ love brain battle?” and Yokoyari-sensei of “Kuzu no Honkai.” Viewers will be drawn to the innovative introduction of her favorite idol being pregnant and coming to see her maternity hospital in secret. Ai’s lines, such as “Lies are a weapon in this entertainment world” and “Lies are the best love, aren’t they?” already have a “dark anime feel.” What kind of lie is Ai telling? Also, will the pregnancy partner be revealed? The OP theme is “YOASOBI,” and the ED theme is “Queen Bee.”
