Switched babies at birth and arranged marriages are tropes that should not work in the 21st century. However, A Couple of Cuckoos adapts the tropes through its rom-com genre.
Who knew that such age-old cliches could support each other so well?
Nagi and Erika have been switched at birth. However, before they could even meet their biological parents, they became entangled with each other.
They are not the most easy-going couple around, but the pure absurdity of the situation is sure to make you giggle.
A Couple of Cuckoos’ anime adaptation will premiere in 2022. A brand-new trailer is out for the upcoming anime!
The trailer begins by showing how Nagi and Erika are a pretend couple. Of course, Nagi was forced into this one-sided deal, but little did they know that their engagement was already fixed!
As this cute couple was switched at birth, the upcoming anime will be one hell of awkward and sweet chaos. Erika, the teen SNS celebrity, and Nagi, the introverted bookish guy, are total opposites of each other!
A cute new visual has also been revealed for the upcoming anime!
Erika and Nagi are seen awkwardly posing for pictures together. Life sure isn’t easy when you have to pretend to be boyfriend and girlfriend when you are total strangers in reality.
The main cast of the anime are revealed to be:
|Nagi Umino||Kaito Ishikawa||Tobio Kageyama (Haikyu!!)|
|Erika Amano||Akari Kito||Nezuko Kamado (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba)|
A Couple of Cuckoos is being animated by Shin-Ei Animation and Synergy SP. Its main staff members are quite the pros:
|Chief Director||Hiroaki Akagi||Those Snow White Notes|
|Director||Yoshiyuki Shirahata||Great Pretender|
|Series Script||Yasuhiro Nakanishi||Kaguya-sama: Love is War|
|Character Design||Aya Takano||Polar Bear’s Cafe|
A Couple of Cukoos’ mangaka, Miki Yoshiwara, is also the original creator of Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches.
The original manga of the upcoming anime is both funny and sweet, and we hope that the anime can bring these moments back to life!
