Ready for a Cinderella-inspired anime story? Instead of giant pumpkin carriages, glass slippers, or fairy godmothers, this one will feature the sweet tandem of Miyo and Kiyoka, the main characters of the My Happy Marriage anime.

The series revolves around the arranged matrimony of an unlikely pairing — a noble-born abused woman named Miyo and a cold-hearted soldier named Kiyoka. Despite their circumstances, the two eventually open up their hearts to each other to keep a blissful marriage.

Originally a light novel series, My Happy Marriage is written by Akumi Agitogi and illustrated by Tsukiho Tsukioka. Kinema Citrus announced its anime adaptation, featuring two of Japan’s most popular voice actors.
