Hi everyone! This is quite sudden, but do you know a bird called a “Cuckoo”? I know about the bird! It's Boss from Manga Republic!
Hi there!! Cuckoo? Is it a kind of pigeon? I am not sure what it looks like. It's Saori from Manga Republic!
They may look similar, but they are different birds. A cuckoo is an ordinary looking bird, not like a penguin, but they are famous for a unique habit called brood parasitism.
What is “brood parasitism”?
Birds lay their eggs in the nests of others, sparing themselves the expense of rearing their own young.
Oh! I see! I have heard of it before! Cuckoos are birds that have this kind of habit!

Kakkou No Iinazuke (A Couple of Cuckoos)
- what kind of story is it?
It is a story about two high school students who got into a fateful accident when they were babies.
The main character, Umino Nagi, is a boy and a high school junior.
He is growing up in a poor household. In order to be given a scholorship for free tuition, he has been working hard to be an honor student.
Just recently, he found out that there was a baby swap accident due to a nurse's misunderstanding at the hospital when he was born. One of the babies is Nagi. So, he was going to meet with his biological parents.
He would not be able to say that his life of 16 years so far was happy with a wealthy family, but he loves his foster family very much. Therefore, he wanted to let his biological parents know that he would like to live with the Umino family forever.
The day that Nagi was about to meet with his biological parents......
He met a girl who was going to jump off from a bridge.
He tried to stop her immediately.
He pulled the girl back to the bridge, but she was holding a smartphopne on recording mode. Nagi asked her what was going on.
It seemed like the girl was pretending to committ suicide and taping it.
Her parents are trying to make her get married to someone they chose against her will.
The girl explained to Nagi that she wanted to persuade her parents by using the recording of the fake suicide. Nagi said to her that we are both having family problems.
Her name is Erika and she is a famous influencer on social media. Erika suddenly came up with an idea after she learned that Nagi goes to a famous elite school.
She wanted to persuade her parents by saying that she has a wonderful boyfriend who compares well to her fiance. She asked him to help her with persuading her parents.
After that, he reluctantly agreed to help her plan, but many things started happening such as her parents quickly found out about this fake couple, Nagi chased away Erika's stalker......etc.
They are getting along with each other somewhat.
In the end, Erika told Nagi “I wish Nagi-kun were my fiance......”
She appreciated their encounter......
Now it's almost sunset.
Nagi was a little late coming to see his biological parents at the restaurant where they are waiting for him. There were two families, both the foster and biological parents at the restaurant together. They seemed to be enjoying meeting each other.
Unexpectedly, Erika was also there!
The accidentaly swapped babies at the hospital were Nagi and Erika!!
Earlier today, Erika emailed her parents that Erika and Nagi were dating now, which is a lie.
“If you guys get married, they both can be our children for real! It will be fantastic!!”
The families seemed more than happy! What is going to happen to them in the future? Their fate? Their lie?
I see! Very interesting story!
