Key visual, main staff unveiled in promotional video

The official website for the anime adaptation of Mengo Yokoyari's Scum's Wish (Kuzu no Honkai) manga began streaming a promotional revealing a key visual and the main staff on Tuesday.

Masaomi Andō (School-Live!, Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle) will direct the series and Makoto Uezu (KONOSUBA, Akame ga KILL!, The Heroic Legend of Arslan) is handling series composition at Studio Lerche (Monster Musume, School-Live!). Keiko Kurosawa (Re:␣Hamatora, Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle) is designing the characters and serving as chief animation director, and Masaru Yokoyama (BBK/BRNK, The Lost Village) is composing the music.

The anime will premiere on Fuji TV's Noitamina programming block in January 2017.

Crunchyroll is publishing the manga digitally in English, and Yen Press will publish the series in print in North America. Crunchyroll describes the story:

Hanabi and Mugi are bathed in envious gazers from all around as a beautiful couple with excellent moral conduct. But these two apparently perfect people in an apparently perfect relationship share a secret they can't tell anyone.

Yokoyari launched the manga in Square Enix's Big Gangan magazine in 2012, and Square Enix will publish the seventh volume on December 24.
