On September 11, 2022, the staff of 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 featuring titled “Tsukasa’s Kitchen” and revealed that the special episode titled “Seifuku” will premiere on November 22, 2022, which also happens to be Good Couple’s Day in Japan.
The term is a play on words. 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 took care of the music composition with the arrangement by Kohei. The video features Tsukasa cooking delicious meals for Nasa to the song.
You can watch the video on the official Warner Bros. Japan Anime YouTube channel here:
What is the plot of Seifuku?
Tsukasa and Nasa live happily as newlyweds in the Arisugawa household. While they had a fateful romantic encounter, they find that sadly they never got to experience a normal high school romance or “seifuku dating.” At Aya’s suggestion, Tsukasa decides to wear a seifuku (Japanese school uniform modeled on European naval uniforms, also known as sailor fuku or sailor’s uniforms).
Nasa can’t hide his excitement at seeing Tsukasa in his seifuku.
Will Nasa get massive nosebleeds and make a fool of itself? We’ll have to wait until we see the special to find out!
