The official website for the anime adaptation of Mengo Yokoyari's Scum's Wish (Kuzu no Honkai) manga began streaming the show's first full promotional video on Thursday. The video reveals the show's main cast and January 12 premiere date.

The anime stars:

Chika Anzai as Hanabi Yasuraoka

Nobunaga Shimazaki as Mugi Awaya

Haruka Tomatsu as Sanae Ebato

Shiori Izawa as Noriko Kamomebata

Kenji Nojima as Narumi Kanai

Aki Toyosaki as Akane Minagawa

Amazon will exclusively stream the series in Japan and abroad, and will premiere the first episode on January 11, before the anime premieres on Fuji TV's Noitamina programming block on January 12.

Masaomi Andō (School-Live!, Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle) is directing the series and Makoto Uezu (KONOSUBA, Akame ga KILL!, The Heroic Legend of Arslan) is handling series composition and is also writing the scripts 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.

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.
