The two finally found their way back two years after their first meeting. This is one rare romance anime where fans didn’t have to wait long for the characters to get together. Because of this, Nasa and Tsukasa gave fans more cuddling moments than the usual courting stage right in the beginning of series’ first season.
The best thing about TONIKAWA: Over the Moon for You is that Nasa Yuzaki and Tsukasa Tsukuyomi’s love story instantly starts with marriage. Romance animes often revolves around the courting stage of the characters who are either still in school or employed.
In these kind of shows, couples tend to get together only in the middle or almost at the end of the anime. However, Nasa and Tsukasa differ greatly. This is because their story aims to explore and give glimpses on how marriage works not only for young married couple, but everyone. And their love story started with a literal accident.
When did Nasa and Tsukasa First Met?
Wedding bells have been ringing for the two since their fateful encounter. Nasa became the ultimate exception for one of the most popular trope in the anime world. The assumption behind Truck-kun, wherein a character gets transported or isekaid into another world, became a popular meme shared in various media platforms.
However, Kenjiro Hata’s TONIKAWA: Over the Moon for You is a romance-comedy anime. Therefore, Nasa Yuzaki did not get transported in another world, but was lucky enough to meet the woman of his dreams because of it. Tsukasa Tsukuyomi possess a beauty that can make other people’s head turn, including Nasa.
While Nasa was walking home and rethinking about his life choices, a beautiful, at the same time, cute pink-haired girl caught his eye. Being a complete busy bee since he was young became a hindrance into him actually developing an intimate relationship with other people. But, seeing Tsukasa during that snowy night made Nasa believe that talking to her is one of the reasons he is alive. Hence, Nasa did not let this moment slide and tried to approach her.
Sadly, his excitement instantly turned into confusion when a truck suddenly shows up and was about to hit him. If not for Tsukasa’s fast thinking and all the mysteries behind on who she truly is, Nasa could have died on the spot.
This grave incident became the most unforgettable encounter of the two. Nasa’s recklessness later on became one of the best accidents in his life which gave him a purpose. Even after being badly wounded due to the accident, Nasa tried his best to ran after the insanely cute woman who saved him. He even prioritized it instead of going to the hospital and have himself check.
Well even in his unfortunate situation, he managed to find her. He bravely went to expressed his gratefulness and introduced himself. Nasa believed that meeting Tsukasa was the works of destiny that is why he was so eager to go after her. Eventually Tsukasa offered Nasa to marry her which he proudly said yes to even without having no clue about his future wife.
When Did They Got Married?
Finally, in episode one of season one they reconciled a few years later. They got their marriage registered during their first night together. But before that, Nasa was just holding on to what happened during their first meeting. Even without any knowledge as to who her cute life saver was, he held unto their promise.
While waiting for her, Nasa decided to focus more in working rather than pursuing his education. After months and months of day and night shifts, his hard work became fruitful because he got to save a huge amount of money which he didn’t know he needed sooner. Tsukasa not showing up for many months almost made Nasa gave up.
However, turning eighteen suddenly became the happiest year of his life. It is know that when a person turns eighteen they have now reach the legal stage. Yup! Including the right to entering marriage. Nasa was all alone in his small apartment when the girl he have practice patience for so long was right in his doorsteps.
All of Nasa’s worries were swept away when Tsukasa was already inside of his apartment with him. However, his happiness turned into shock for a short moment when she showed up with their marriage registration. He even dropped his cup of coffee because if his it. His response almost made Tsukasa back-off. However, he was able to composed himself and told her that she is willing to do it because of his love.
I’m shocked, yeah, but I never said I wouldn’t do it! I still love you, and I want to be together! None of that has changed! So, if a marriage registration is what it takes, or anything else for that matter, I’ll sign!Nasa Yuzaki to Tsukasa Tsukuyomi (Season 1: Episode 1)
Nasa went with the flow and filled out the necessary documents for their registration. He didn’t even bother to ask her any questions, just her name was enough for him to trust her. Moreover, Tsukasa had everything all planned out for their first meeting. The two went to the city hall and registered their marriage late at night.
Tsukasa knew that the city hall has a 24/7 office that accepted marriage registration. So they both went there and was successful. After that, the office even gave them a small plant as a gift for them as a newly-married couple. They took it home and it became one of Nasa’s greatest treasure.
Remember that their first meeting and marriage all happened in the first episode of season one. Thus, TONIKAWA: Over the Moon for You will definitely get you glued in your seats until you finish all the available episodes.
How Did Nasa Propose to Tsukasa?
The relationship of the two has been extraordinary right from the beginning. Nasa did not ask for Tsukasa’s hand because it was the other way around. Nasa was presumed to be only sixteen when the two met during that snowy night; hence, marriage didn’t even crossed his mind when he saw her.
It is a fact that he was mesmerized with Tsukasa’s beauty that is why he muster up all his courage and strength to asked her out. However, marriage is not something that a sixteen years old teenager thinks about. At first, Nasa only wanted to go to her and asked her out.
He confessed that he got love struck by Tsukasa and told her that he already loves her. Nasa didn’t proposed to her, but bravely asked her out only. Because of this, Tsukasa was more than surprised to see Nasa conveying his love for her instead of aiding all the wounds he got from the accident.
With his abrupt love confession, Nasa massively caught Tsukasa’s attention. But, instead of just going out, Tsukasa wanted them to marry each other. It was Tsukasa that brought up the idea of getting married. And because he was so into her, Nasa didn’t even hesitate twice to say yes to her marriage proposal. It was only the two of them and their promises. There were no big proposal that has will you marry me on it, a bunch of roses, or even rings.
Therefore, when Kaname Arisugawa found out that Nasa didn’t proposed to her wife she gave him an earful. Nasa and Tsukasa only lived in an apartment with only a kitchen and a bedroom. Hence, when they need to take a bath, they have to visit the bathhouse. This led to Nasa introducing his wife to one of the owner’s daughters, Kaname-chan.
Kaname and Nasa has the usual bond of friendship. And her outspoken side sometimes pushes her to scold her senpai for his obliviousness with certain things, such as on marriage. In episode three of season one, Nasa told Kaname that they didn’t had a wedding ceremony because of practicality reasons which she understood. But, when he told her that no rings were given to Tsukasa and that he didn’t even proposed to her, Nasa got a full-on lecture from Kaname. This made Nasa-kun give Kaname’s advice a lot of thought.
Therefore, instead of doing proposals or wedding ceremonies, the two settled on a wedding ring to remind them of each other. It is not even the most expensive one in the market, but it’s the thought the comes with it.
In today’s world, the man proposing to the woman is now considered to be a very conventional tradition. Maybe for some it should be the man, but some women have already done the same thing as Tsukasa. Sometimes it is not that necessary whether who should propose, especially when you’re both in love and are openminded. The most significant thing that one should take into account is that they both share the same feelings and are willing to share their life with each other.
TONIKAWA: Over the Moon for You is not an ordinary romance-comedy anime. The overall theme of the series teaches its audience life-long lessons, especially in the aspect of marriage. Nasa and Tsukasa’s marriage life dives deep to the highs and lows of being married.
It may not be a perfect one, but if both works together then the possibility of keeping the fire burning is possible. Each episode of Tonikawa tackles a different side of the couples marriage. Because of this, fans can’t get enough of this wholesome series that always leave them wanting for more.
