Romantic comedy A Couple of Cuckoos has received its first main trailer and main visual ahead of its newly announced April premiere.

Additional cast members were also announced, with Ryouhei Kimura and Youko Hikasa playing Youhei Umino and Namie Umino, the parents of protagonist Nagi Umino, respectively. Meanwhile, Toshiyuki Morikawa and Yukiko Aruga are playing Nagi’s birth parents Souchirou Amano and Ritsuko Amano respectively.

A Couple of Cuckoos is based on the manga by Miki Yoshikawa, which began in 2020 and has 10 tankoubon volumes as of January 2022. It is serialized in Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine and published under the Kodansha Comics label.


Kodansha describes the manga 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!
