I am sorry, I can not stay away from a romance series whenever I smell a good one. And yes, this one looks very interesting. The setting of old Japan alone is enough to make My Happy Marriage different from other rom-coms. I don’t think any of the romance anime have tried this period drama-style setting unless isekai or games are involved in it somehow.

That setting is what drew me to this anime. An interesting setting with a seemingly wholesome plot, what is there not like?

So welcome back to another edition of Put This on Your Radar – the show where I take a look at the upcoming anime that caught my eye. And today, of course, we are talking about My Happy Marriage. So let’s get started.

My Thoughts

Not much to say here. The plot is pretty straightforward, what interests me in this anime is the time period it is set in. I think that can add a nice differentiation factor to this anime and make it really entertaining if used right. My Happy Marriage should satisfy the romance craving of people like me at the very least if nothing else. I do hope it is as good as I think though and it blows everyone away.


That is all for now. Let me know what you guys think in the comments below. Another anime for fellow romance fans out there and if we’re lucky, My Happy Marriage may actually be really good. With that said, I will take my leave here. See ya!
