A Couple of Cuckoos Storyline
Nagi Umino was mistakenly swapped at birth and now attends a prestigious private high school. One day, by chance, he meets Erika Amano, an incredible high-society high school student. She claims that she is on her way to her fiancé and forces Nagi to play her fake boyfriend.
At that point, neither of them understood the meaning of their meeting – because Erika is the girl with whom Nagi was swapped at birth. Although the parents know about the confusion, neither side wants to do without their child. So they came to the decision to bring the two of them into the other family via a wedding!
