"Scum's Wish" Anime Staff Spotted

Mature-audience relationship manga's adaptation runs on Noitamina this winter

After this season's adaptation of The Great Passage (Fune o Amu) - a novel about the production of a dictionary, in winter, Fuji TV's alt-audience anime block Noitamina will be running an anime adaptation of Mengo Yokoyari's Big Gangan seinen relationship manga Scum's Wish (Kuzu no Honka). An early look at the staff reveals that Masaomi Ando (White Album 2, Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse) will helm the Lerche production.


Makoto Uezu (Assassinaiton Classroom, Danganronpa, Rampo Kitan: Game of Laplace) writes series composition and screenplay. Keiko Kurosawa (Re:␣Hamatora, Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle, animation director on Assassination Classroom) is animation director and character designer. Masaru Yokoyama (BBK/BRNK, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans) is on the series' music.


Crunchyroll describes the manga

Kuzu no Honkai - We are the scum of humanity... Hanabi and Mugi are bathed in envious gazes 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.
