Update: Scum’s Wish anime reveals trailer, cast, premiere

The anime adaptation of Mengo Yokoyari’s Scum’s Wish manga has its first long-awaited trailer since the show’s announcement way back in March. This first full promo video also announces the series’ main cast, as well as its slated January 12th premiere. Go ahead and meet all the characters, looking sweet as anything.

Those stars and their roles are:

Chika Anzai (Sound! Euphonium‘s Reina Kousaka) as Hanabi Yasuraoka

Nobunaga Shimazaki (My Love Story!!‘s Makoto Sunakawa) as Mugi Awaya

Haruka Tomatsu (Sword Art Online‘s Asuna) as Sanae Ebato

Shiori Izawa (Shirobako‘s Ai Kunogi) as Noriko Kamomebata

Kenji Nojima (Sailor Moon Crystal‘s Mamoru Chiba/Tuxedo Mask) as Narumi Kanai

Aki Toyosaki (K-ON!‘s Yui Hirasawa) as Akane Minagawa

As they have acquired the online rights for all noitaminA anime, Amazon will be streaming the series both in Japan and overseas. They will premiere the first episode on January 11th, the day before Fuji TV’s premiere for the show.

Masaomi Ando of School-Live! directs at studio Lerche, with Makoto Uezu of KonoSuba and The Heroic Legend of Arslan on series composition and writing scripts. Keiko Kurosawa of Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle is designing characters and acting as chief animation director, while Masaru Yokoyama of BBK/BRNK composes music.

Yokoyari launched the manga in Square Enix’s Big Gangan magazine in 2012, with Square Enix set to publish the seventh volume on December 24th. While Yen Press are planning to release the series in print for English readers, Crunchyroll are publishing the manga digitally, and they describe 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.
