Mengo Yokoyari's Scum's Wish Gets Spinoff Manga
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The April issue of Square Enix's Big Gangan magazine revealed on March 25 that Mengo Yokoyari will launch a spinoff manga of her Scum's Wish (Kuzu no Honkai) manga. The magazine will announce more information on the manga in the future.
The same issue published the final chapter of the manga.
Crunchyroll published Scum's Wish 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.
Yokoyari launched the manga in Square Enix's Big Gangan magazine in 2012, and Square Enix published the eighth and final volume (seen right) on March 25. Yen Press published the manga's second volume on January 24.
The manga inspired both a television anime series and a live-action series, which ran parallel during the winter season. The anime premiered on January 12 and ended on March 30, while the live-action series premiered on January 18 and ended on April 5. Both series adapted the entire story of the manga. Amazon Prime Video streamed the anime series in Japan and abroad, including in the United States as part of its Anime Strike service.
