My Happy Marriage (Watashi no Shiawase na Kekkon) is a tale that is as old as time. It has similar themes to Cinderella, from evil stepsisters and stepmothers to the use of supernatural abilities. This tale of romance, magic, and intimidating reputations will begin on July 5th, 2023. Studio Kinema Citrus released a trailer in advance to get fans and potential viewers hyped.
Kinema Citrus has set up a promotional home page for My Happy Marriage. In addition, there is also an official Twitter page, as well as an official Instagram page. Behind-the-scenes information, including seasonal key visuals, can be found there.
The Cruel Prince and the Unfortunate Princess
My Happy Marriage finds two people in desperate situations who receive a second chance together. Miyo (voiced by Reina Ueda) was born to the Saimori family, known for their supernatural abilities. Unfortunately, she evidently never exhibited such talents, making her a subject of abuse and neglect. Her stepmother and stepsister treat her as a servant, and even her father has abandoned her to her fate. So she was made to keep her head low and obey every order.
When Miyo reached a marriageable age, her family was determined to marry her off. Accordingly, it was their intent that she would make some use of her for the family. Miyo accepted that she would never be happy, especially when she learned her future husband’s name.
Kiyoka (voiced by Kaito Ishikawa) is the head of the Kudo family and a great military captain. He wields the power of fire and is known to be ruthlessly cruel. He had been engaged before, but the women all left within three days, a fact known to Miyo. The reality of the situation turns out to be quite different, and her supposed cruel fiancé is surprisingly quite kind and warm. These two will find happiness and solace within one another.
My Happy Marriage Origins
