The Kuchisake-onna, Miroku-san is the bride-to-be of high schooler K?ichi Sano to regain her powers?! And for some reason, K?ichi is totally on board with the engagement… The exciting life of the Kuchisake-onna at the mercy of her high schooler fiance starts now!


Setting aside the random question marks in the one character's name... What is going on with this story synopsis? Hopefully the text of the manga itself is handled better.

Koichi's name is displayed just fine in the manga's translation
(And the translation itself is perfectly fine)

The summary it's fine, but not exactly right: Koichi fell in love with Miroku and she's the one not too keen of the idea of marrying a humanspoiler[at first, now they quite in love.].

Based on other posts, I'm guessing the name was supposed to be Kouichi / Kōichi, and the ō character got garbled along the way. So that's probably more in the process of creating the write-up on this site, rather than anything from the manga release itself. As for the synopsis, the writing style is pretty typical of "translated directly from Japanese marketing synopses" text.
