A Couple of Cuckoos premiered in Japan on April 23. It is an adaptation of the romantic comedy manga by Miki Yoshikawa, which began in 2020 and has 13 tankoubon volumes as of July 2022. The manga 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!

The staff includes Hiroaki Akagi (Teasing Master Takagi-san Season 13) as chief director, Yoshiyuki Shirahata (Osamake: Romcom Where The Childhood Friend Won’t Lose storyboarder and episode director) as director, Yasuhiro Nakanishi (Kaguya-sama: Love Is War Season 13) as series composer, and Aya Takano (Teasing Master Takagi-san Season 13) as character designer. Shin-Ei Animation and SynergySP are the animation production companies.
