Upcoming TV anime A Couple of Cuckoos revealed its third collaboration visual today, this time with Erika and Rena from Higurashi: When They Cry's newest TV anime series wearing each other's outfits with Erika welding the knife that Rena is known for–that seemingly looks used. The visual is part of a series that first saw Erika team up Emilia from Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- and then Ainz from Overlord.

A Couple of Cuckoos has been serialized in Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine since January 2020, and so far eight volumes have been released in Japan. Its English version's publisher Kodansha USA introduces its story as below:
16-year-old super-studier Nagi Umino, second-year student at the Meguro River Academy high school, was switched at birth. On his way to a dinner to meet his birth parents, he accidentally meets the brash, outspoken, Erika Amano, who is determined to make Nagi her fake boyfriend as she never wants to actually marry. But once Nagi makes it to dinner, he finds his parents have decided to resolve the hospital switch by conveniently having him marry the daughter his birth parents raised…who turns out to be none other than Erika herself!
Hiroaki Akagi (KARAKAI JOZU NO TAKAGI-SAN) is the general director of the adaptation, while Yoshiyuki Shirahata (episodes of Great Pretender, Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle) is the director. A Couple of Cuckoos is scheduled to broadcast in 2022.
