A new official website was created to announce the anime adaptation of Miki Yoshikawa’s A Couple of Cuckoos (Kakkō no Iinazuke) manga, which is set to premiere sometime in 2022.
The anime’s cast includes Kaito Ishikawa as Nagi Umino and Akari Kitō as Erika Amano.
The main staff includes Hiroaki Akagi (Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san, Those Snow White Notes) as chief director, Yoshiyuki Shirahata (Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle, Great Pretender) as director, Yasuhiro Nakanishi (Kaguya-sama: Love is War, Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun) as script supervisor, and Aya Takano (Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san, Polar Bear’s Café) as character designer. Shin-Ei Animation and Synergy SP are in charge of the animation production.
A Couple of Cuckoos (Kakkō no Iinazuke) launched in Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen Magazine in January 2020.
Kodansha Comics publishes the manga in English and describes the story as:
16-year-old super-studier Nagi Umino, second-year student at the Megurogawa Academy high school, was switched at birth. On his way to a dinner to meet his birth parents, he accidentally meets the brash, outspoken, Erika Amano, who is determined to make Nagi her fake boyfriend as she never wants to actually marry. But once Nagi makes it to dinner, he finds his parents have decided to resolve the hospital switch by conveniently having him marry the daughter his birth parents raised…who turns out to be none other than Erika herself!
