On Saturday, Mangamag reported that the limited edition Love and Lies 8th volume will include an OAD. It is scheduled to go on sale on November 9, 2018.

Love and Lies

The Love and Lies manga is written by Musawo Tsumugi and being published by Kodansha, with releases online by DeNA's Manga Box app in multiple languages. The first even volumes of the manga sold about 1.8 million copies. The manga inspired an anime adaptation by Liden Films that aired from July 4, 2017 to September 19, 2017. A live-action film was also released in October 2017 which, instead of a love triangle between one boy and two girls, focused on one girl and two boys.

Here's the synopsis of the series as per MAL:

In a futuristic society, Japan has implemented a complex system referred to as "The Red Threads of Science" to encourage successful marriages and combat increasingly low birthrates. Based on a compatibility calculation, young people at the age of 16 are assigned marriage partners by the government, with severe repercussions awaiting those who disobey the arrangement. For Yukari Nejima, a teen that considers himself average in every way, this system might be his best shot at living a fulfilling life.

However, spurred by his infatuation for his classmate and long-time crush, Misaki Takasaki, Yukari defies the system and confesses his love. After some initial reluctance, Misaki reciprocates his feelings in a moment of passion. Unfortunately, before the two can further their relationship, Yukari receives his marriage notice. He is then thrown into a confusing web of love and lies when his less-than-thrilled assigned partner, Ririna Sanada, becomes fascinated with his illicit romance.
