Masuo Fugano is a 24-year-old virgin Salaryman, and Unlucky Everydude with a capital U. He's tired of being single, and grows despondent when a fortune teller seems to predict he has no chance in love. Despite this, he decides to try a marriage interview... where he meets the beautiful kindergarten teacher Nagisa Shiozaki, who has rather the opposite problem: Too many selfish Jerkasses chasing her have colored her opinion of men in general, and driven her close to giving up on finding a loving husband. But is this seemingly wishy-washy Extreme Doormat of a Dogged Nice Guy really a better prospect?
Thus begins Yamahana Noriyuki's Yume De Aetara (If I See You In My Dreams), 17 volumes of Cannot Spit It Out, Poor Communication Kills, Takahashi-level Belligerent Sexual Tension... and Aw, Look -- They Really Do Love Each Other, Love Bubbles, and Crowning Moments Of Heartwarming

- Oh Crap: .Masuo has an epic one around mid-way in the series, realizing he's caught between Nagisa and Hamaoka's father, who also happens to have high influences on the company Masuo works at. Just to drive the point home of how much he's screwed, he gets shot by the Space Battleship Yamato's Wave Motion Gun!
- Tsundere: Nagisa can give Naru a run for the money. However, Masuo is willing to call her out when she's going overboard on the tsun side.
