As we get to know the characters of the A Couple of Cuckoos TV anime, not everything about them and their stories can fit inside the 24-minute episodes. To get around the time limit, the series is releasing special illustrations of memorable moments that the staff hasn’t been able to fit into the main storyline over on the series’ Instagram account with two released as of writing.

The anime adaptation of A Couple of Cuckoos began on April 23 with Hiroaki Akagi (KARAKAI JOZU NO TAKAGI-SAN) as the general director of the series and Yoshiyuki Shirahata (episodes of Great Pretender, Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle) as the director. Crunchyroll is streaming the series, describing it as such:
Mixed up with another family’s child as a baby, high school student Umino Nagi is finally meeting his biological parents. On the day of their meeting, he happens to encounter Amano Erika, a high school student at a prestigious and wealthy girls school. At her request, he’s half-forced into pretending to be her boyfriend so she can avoid marrying her fiance….However, not only were they the babies who had been mixed up, they’re also engaged to each other! The loving parents of both families officially recognize their engagement, and the couple begins living together. Nagi is in love with his classmate Segawa Hiro, and Erika is determined to rebel against her father, so the couple agree not to get involved with each other. The mixed-up and chaotic romantic comedy starts now!
