Mengo Yokoyari's Scum's Wish Manga Ends in Spring 2017

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Anime, live-action to both adapt entire series

Fuji TV's Noitamina programming block revealed during a livestream event on Thursday that Mengo Yokoyari's Scum's Wish (Kuzu no Honkai) manga is ending in spring 2017. Additionally, both the anime series and the live-action series will adapt the entire manga series.

Yokoyari launched the manga in Square Enix's Big Gangan magazine in 2012, and Square Enix will publish both the seventh volume (pictured at right) and a "volume 7.5" official fanbook on December 24. The manga's eighth volume will have a limited edition when it ships on March 25, and will bundle a "premium visual collection."

Crunchyroll is publishing the manga digitally in English, and Yen Press is publishing 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.

Amazon Prime Video will exclusively stream the anime 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. The anime will premiere on Fuji TV on January 12 at 25:10 (effectively January 13 at 1:10 a.m.), although subsequent episodes will air at 12:55 a.m.

Yokoyari's manga is also getting a live-action series adaptation that will premiere on Fuji TV on January 18.

Update: Added listing of contents of limited edition of eighth volume.
