On September 11, 2022, the staff for the anime adaptation of Kenjiro Hata’s TONIKAWA: Over the Moon for You (Tonikaku Kawaii, Fly Me to the Moon) rom-com, sci-fi, slice-of-life manga released a music video titled “Tsukasa’s Kitchen” and revealed that the special episode titled “Seifuku” is set to premiere on November 22, 2022, which also happens to be Good Couple’s Day in Japan.
The term is a wordplay. In Japanese, you can read “11” (November) as “ii” (Good) and 22 as “fufu” (married couple).
The music video features the song “Tsukasa Yuzaki” sung by Akari Kitou with lyrics by PA-NON. Pero and Kohei Yokono handled music composition with arrangement by Kohei. The video features Tsukasa cooking delicious meals for Nasa to the song.
You can watch the video on Warner Bros. Japan Anime’s official YouTube channel here:
What is the plot of Seifuku?
Tsukasa and Nasa are happily living as newlyweds in the Arisugawa household. While they had a romantic fateful encounter, they realize that they sadly never got to experience normal high school romance or “seifuku dating”. At Aya’s suggestion, Tsukasa decides to wear a seifuku (Japanese school uniform modeled after European-style naval uniforms, also known as sailor-fuku or sailor uniforms).
Nasa can hardly hide his excitement at getting to see Tsukasa in his seifuku.
Will Nasa get a massive nosebleed and make a fool out of himself? We’ll have to wait to see the special episode in order to find out!
Where can I read the manga?
