The upcoming romantic comedy A Couple of Cuckoos has received a second main trailer and an April 23 premiere in Japan. The new trailer previews the newly announced ending song “Shikaku Unmei” by Sangatsu no Phantasia.

A Couple of Cuckoos is based on the manga by Miki Yoshikawa, which began in 2020 and has 11 tankoubon volumes as of March 2022. The manga is serialized in Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine and published under the Kodansha Comics label.

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!
