A Couple of Cuckoos might remind experienced anime fans of titles such as Nisekoi, where a young man and woman find themselves in an arranged relationship or marriage — but their false romance just might become the real deal. Years ago, the Amano and Umino families accidentally swapped their newborn children in the hospital's maternity ward and ended up raising each other's child. Hence the series' title, alluding to how cuckoo birds trick other bird species into raising their young in the nest. Now in the present day, the Amano and Umino families have crossed paths once again.
It's not enough for these families to raise each other's son or daughter. To help fix this awkward situation and bring the families together, all four parents decide to get Amano Erika and Umino Nagi engaged — whether the teens in question like it or not. Now Erika and Nagi face the ultimate challenge to find domestic happiness together before marriage, all while their minds are on someone else entirely.
Erika wants to impress a certain someone with her Instagram modeling, while Nagi is enamored with the ace student Segawa Hiro. And even if Erika volunteers as Nagi's magical girl wingman to capture Hiro's heart, she just might have a change of heart herself and reassess her relationship with her fiance. Nothing is ever easy for these tangled families.

The manga version of A Couple of Cuckoos has a fairly limited release so far. Even so, the English release is up to Volume 7 as of this writing, with Volume 8 slated for release on July 5th, 2022. Release dates for volumes beyond that are not yet known.
A Couple of Cuckoos is not yet available in physical print volumes, but that might change in the future. In the meantime, the manga is available in digital format, and in many cases, digital volumes are cheaper than physical print copies anyway. Interested rom-com manga fans can find these digital A Couple of Cuckoos volumes at Barnes & Noble's online catalog with the Nook e-reader function, as well as with Amazon.com's Kindle & comiXology system.
These volumes are not yet available as omnibuses, selling only as digital individual volumes. This means that RightStufAnime does not currently stock the A Couple of Cuckoos manga, though it does have some character figurines available for pre-order.
