The official website for the television anime adaptation of Mengo Yokoyari's Scum's Wish (Kuzu no Honkai) manga announced on Friday that Dori Sakurada and Chika Anzai will have guest starring roles in the live-action adaptation of the manga and the anime.

Sakurada (seen right), who plays Mugi Awaya in the live-action show, will guest star in the anime's 11th episode, which will air on March 23. He will play a character named Ori Kurada. Chika Anzai (seen below left), who plays Hanabi Yasuraoka in the anime, will guest star in the live-action show's final episode, which will premiere on Fuji TV On Demand on March 31, and on Fuji TV on April 5.

Amazon Prime Video is exclusively streaming the anime series in Japan and abroad, including in the United States as part of its Anime Strike service. Amazon Prime Video premiered the first episode on January 11, before the television premiere on Fuji TV's Noitamina programming block on January 12.

The first episode of the live-action series debuted on Fuji TV On Demand on January 13, before debuting on television on Fuji TV on January 18.

Both the anime and live-action series are adapting the manga from start to finish. The manga will end on March 25.

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.

Masaomi Andō (School-Live!, Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle) is directing the anime 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.

Yokoyari launched the manga in Square Enix's Big Gangan magazine in 2012, and Square Enix will publish the eighth and final volume on March 25.
