My Happy Marriage 2023 / A beautifully rendered, yet standard, Cinderella-type fairytale anime romance


The best thing about a Cinderella story is knowing she’ll get a Prince Charming™ by the end (with or without the rats and pumpkins). The first episode of My Happy Marriage sets up the fairytale expectations to a T. Mistreated by her step-mother and step-sister – and a tragic mom-is-dead backstory – this anime hits expected beats which means it’ll either be a comfortable watch or a predictable skip. The silver lining comes when Miyo’s step-sister marries her long-time crush while she is sent away to marry a difficult man known to repel his suitors. A swoon-worthy, slow-burn romance is surely on the horizon, enveloped in a strikingly beautiful, dreamy animation.
