The My Happy Marriage anime adaptation has received another trailer ahead of its July 5 premiere. The new trailer focuses on Kiyoka Kudou, the main male character of the story and the fiance of heroine Miyo Saimori.

Aside from the trailer, more cast details were released as well. Toshinari Fukamachi is playing the role of Kazushi Tatsuishi while Akira Ishida is playing Takaihito.

My Happy Marriage will be streamed on Netflix worldwide. The anime is based on the KADOKAWA-published books written by Akumi Agitogi and illustrated by Tsukiho Tsukioka, which began in January 2019 and has six volumes as of July 2022. 

Yen Press describes the books as:

IS THIS MARRIAGE A BLESSING? OR A CURSE?

​Born talentless to a noble family famous for their supernatural abilities, Miyo Saimori is forced into an existence of servitude by her abusive stepmother. When Miyo finally comes of marriageable age, though, her hopes of being whisked away to a better life crumble after she discovers her fiancé’s identity: Kiyoka Kudou, a commander apparently so cold and cruel that his previous would-be brides all fled within three days of their engagements. With no home to return to, Miyo resigns herself to her fate—and soon finds that her pale and beautiful husband-to-be is anything but the monster she expected. As they slowly open their hearts to each other, both realize the other may be their chance at finding true love and happiness.
