It’s been a big month for Akumi Agitogi’s My Happy Marriage light novel series, which is now confirmed to have a live-action film in the works as well as an anime series!
A “super teaser” visual was released, along with the main cast, staff and a Spring 2023 release window:
Ayuko Tsukahara is directing Snow Man idol group member Ren Muguro as Kiyoka Kudo in his first theatrical role and Mio Imada as Miyo Saimori, while Tomoe Kanno is writing and Reiko Imayasu is producing the film at Toho.

Yen Press, who publishes the light novels’ official English version, describes the series 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.
