A Couple of Cuckoos’s Second Trailer Spotlights Nao Toyama’s Character

The upcoming A Couple of Cuckoos (Kakkou no Iinazuke) anime has received a second trailer, which spotlights Nao Tōyama‘s character, Hiro Segawa. The anime is set to release in 2022.

A second visual was also released.

A Couple of Cuckoos is based on the ongoing manga by Miki Yoshikawa, which began in 2020 and has seven tankōbon volumes as of July 2021. Kodansha describes the story as:

16-year-old super-studier Nagi Umino, second-year student at the Meguro River 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!

The staff includes Akagi Hiroaki (Teasing Master Takagi-san Season 1 and 2 director) as chief director, Shirahata Yoshiyuki (Osamake: Romcom Where The Childhood Friend Won’t Lose storyboarder and episode director) as director, Yasuhiro Nakanishi (Kaguya-sama: Love Is War) as series composer, and Aya Takano (Teasing Master Takagi-san Season 1 and 2) as character designer. Shin-Ei Animation and SynergySP are the animation production companies.

Meanwhile, the cast includes Kaito Ishikawa as Nagi Umino and Akari Kitō as Erika Amano.

Melvyn originally wanted to write about video games, and he did so for a few years, starting from his college days. He still writes about video games sometimes, but now focuses on anime-related news content and the occasional review. Some of his free time is spent self-learning Japanese, both out of interest in the language and because English-translated light novels and manga are expensive. Every anime season, Melvyn looks forward to discovering new standout episodes and OP/ED animation sequences, as well as learning about the storyboard artists and directors behind them.
