The official website for the television anime of Miki Yoshikawa's A Couple of Cuckoos manga posted the first English-subtitled main promotional video and the main visual for the anime on Monday. The video unveils more cast members, the opening song, and the April premiere for the anime.

The newly announced cast members are:

Ikimono-gakari vocalist Kiyoe Yoshioka performs the opening theme song "Dekoboko" (Rough), as heard in the video above.

The anime will premiere in April in the NUMAnimation programming block on TV Asahi and its affiliates.

Kodansha Comics publishes the manga in English, and it describes the romantic comedy:

16-year-old super-studier Nagi Umino, second-year student at the Megurogawa 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 anime will star Kaito Ishikawa as Nagi Umino, Akari Kitō as Erika Amano, and Nao Tōyama as Hiro Segawa.

Hiroaki Akagi (Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san, Those Snow White Notes) is the chief director of the anime and Yoshiyuki Shirahata (episode director for Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle, Great Pretender) is directing the anime at Shinei Animation and Synergy SP. Yasuhiro Nakanishi (Kaguya-sama: Love is War both seasons, Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun) is overseeing the series scripts, and Aya Takano (Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san, Polar Bear's Café) is designing the characters.

Crunchyroll will stream the anime outside Japan.

Yoshikawa (Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches, Yankee-kun to Megane-chan) launched the A Couple of Cuckoos (Kakkō no Iinazuke) manga in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine in January 2020. Kodansha published the manga's eighth compiled book volume on September 17. The manga received a novel that shipped on April 14.

Shueisha's Young Jump magazine revealed in February that Yoshikawa's manga will have a collaboration with Aka Akasaka and Mengo Yokoyari's Oshi no Ko manga.
