Aniplex Japan has set the home video release schedule for Scum’s Wish and they’ve actually brought out the full release date slate at once. The twelve episode series is getting a six-volume release that begins on March 29th, 2017. Both formats are listed as limited editions with the DVDs priced at 6,000 yen and the Blu-ray’s at 7,000 yen.
The show was directed by Masaomi Ando based on the series composition by Makoto Uezu. Keiko Kurosawa served as both the animation director and character designer for it with Lerche handling the animation.
The Japanese cast includes Chika Anzai as Hanabi Yasuraoka, Nobunaga Shimazaki as Mugi Awaya, Haruka Tomatsu as Sanae Ebato, Shiori Izawa as Noriko Kamomebata, Kenji Nojima as Narumi Kanai and Aki Toyosaki as Akane Minagawa.
The original work began in September 2012 in Big Gangan magazine and has done pretty well since then with some creative stories that have garnered some good attention from readers.
Plot concept: 17-year-old Awaya Mugi and Yasuraoka Hanabi appear to be the ideal couple. They are both pretty popular, and they seem to suit each other well. However, outsiders don’t know of the secret they share. Both Mugi and Hanabi have hopeless crushes on someone else, and they are only dating each other to soothe their loneliness. Mugi is in love with Minagawa Akane, a young teacher who used to be his home tutor. Hanabi is also in love with a teacher, a young man who has been a family friend since she was little. In each other, they find a place where they can grieve for the ones they cannot have, and they share a loneliness-driven physical intimacy. Will things stay like this for them forever?
