According to Crunchyroll here is a summary of the series: “Miki Koishikawa’s parents have always been strange. While deeply caring for their daughter, they’re prone to wasteful spending, oversleeping, and even taking extravagant trips. And their latest trip to Hawaii has brought back something truly outrageous: love. Not for each other, but for a different couple entirely! With her parents planning to divorce and swap partners with the Matsuuras, Miki’s life is turned upside down with a new, highly abnormal family all living together in one house. To top it off, the Matsuuras have a son named Yuu exactly Miki’s age, and he’s too gorgeous for words. For better or for worse, this is Miki’s life now, but adjusting won’t be easy when jealous rivals and old flames enter the mix! Dip into the pot of classic shoujo with this first collection of Marmalade Boy, containing the first 38 episodes! This includes the original Japanese language with English subtitles, and the English dub.”

The manga’s description: “Little did Nao Kogure realize back in middle school that when she left an umbrella and a box of bandages in the rain for injured delinquent Taiga Onise that she would meet him again in high school. Nao wants nothing to do with the gruff and frightening Taiga, but he suddenly presents her with a huge bouquet of flowers and asks her to date him—with marriage in mind! Is Taiga really so scary, or is he a sweetheart in disguise?”
