What is the story of Kokkou No Iinazuke?
Nagi Umino and Erika Amano, two 16-year-olds whose lives intersected on the day they were born, are the protagonists in A Couple Of Cuckoos. Nagi Umino is an ordinary high school student. But one day he discovers that his parents are not his blood relatives. While he eventually accepts the truth, he also resolves to find his biological parents.
When he finally makes contact with them, they invite Nagi Umino to dinner. On his way to their house, he meets Erika Amano, a beautiful, popular, and daring young woman who is attempting to flee an arranged marriage established by her parents. To get away from it, she asks Nagi Umino to pose as her fake boyfriend.
Erika Amano, on the other hand, is the biological child of Nagi Umino’s adoptive parents. For both families to get to know each other’s children, Nagi Umino and Erika Amano’s parents have decided to marry them off and join their families. The plot follows the two as they get to know each other and adjust to their new lives and circumstances.

Kakkou No Iinazuke Season 1 end in manga
On average, each episode of the anime adapts to two to three chapters of the manga. The latest episode of Kakkou No Iinazuke, which is episode number 16, adapted chapters 35, 36, and 37 from the manga. If the remaining episodes follow the same pattern, then the first season will most likely be able to adapt the manga up to volume 6 or even half of volume 7.
Kakkou No Iinazuke Season 2 Release Date and Spoilers
There is no confirmed news about Season 2 of this anime series. This is because A Couple Of Cuckoos surprisingly aired in two cours for its first season. It is also highly likely that there might not be another season for the next couple of years. Another reason for this is that the first season of the anime has covered almost half of the total original series.
For a new season, there must be more source material to keep the gap between the manga and the anime. The next season will also continue the shenanigans in the lives of Nagi Umino and Erika Amano as they became a part of a messy ‘love rectangle’.
