After the first two promotional videos, which focus on the main heroine Erika Amano and another heroine, Hiro Segawa, the official website of A Couple of Cuckoos (Kakkō no Iinazuke) has released a 35-second third promotional video. It introduces Sachi Umino, the sister-in-law of the protagonist Nagi, voiced by Konomi Kohara.

The anime is scheduled to premiere in 2022. The studios Synergy SP and Shin-Ei Animation will produce the anime. The series is directed by Hiroaki Akagi and Yoshiyuki Shirahata. Aya Takano is responsible for the character design and Yashiro Nakanishi for the composition.

Miki Yoshikawa published the manga in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine in January 2020. Kodansha published the eighth anthology of the manga on September 17th.

Kodansha USA presents the story as follows:

Sixteen-year-old super student Nagi Umino, a sophomore at Meguro River Academy High School, was swapped at birth. On the way to a dinner at which he is supposed to get to know his birth parents, he runs into the brash, outspoken Erika Amano, who is determined to make Nagi her wrong boyfriend because she never really wants to get married. But when Nagi makes it to dinner, Nagi finds that his parents have decided to break up the hospital swap by conveniently letting him marry the daughter his birth parents raised ... who turns out to be none other than Erika herself!
