The synopsis for My Happy Marriage Episode 13:
Finally, the day of the party which had been the point of all the lady lessons arrives. What kind of young lady could have reached a formal engagement with Kiyoka Kudou, rumored to be cold and merciless – the eyes of the guests are intense, pondering this. Hazuki is satisfied seeing Miyo, though tense, properly fulfilling her role in a beautiful dress. Kiyoka, with Miyo in this state, tells her, “There is someone I want you to meet”…
The first season of the My Happy Marriage anime aired from July to September 2023 across 12 episodes with a sequel announced immediately after the finale. The series streamed on Netflix in the United States and was met with widespread praise, finishing sixth in Anime Corner’s Summer 2023 Anime Rankings. Of notable praise was the romantic development between Miyo and Kiyoka as well as the soundtrack by Evan Call, whom Anime Corner had the opportunity to interview.
My Happy Marriage adapts the light novel and manga of the same name. Yen Press licensed the novel in English, and they describe the story:
Born talentless to a noble family famous for their supernatural abilities, Miyo Saimori is forced into an existence of servitude by her abusive stepmother. When Miyo finally comes of marriageable age, though, her hopes of being whisked away to a better life crumble after she discovers her fiancé’s identity: Kiyoka Kudou, a commander apparently so cold and cruel that his previous would-be brides all fled within three days of their engagements. With no home to return to, Miyo resigns herself to her fate—and soon finds that her pale and beautiful husband-to-be is anything but the monster she expected. As they slowly open their hearts to each other, both realize the other may be their chance at finding true love and happiness.
