A new themed visual has arrived for The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten, the upcoming anime adaptation of Saekisan’s novel series that’s set to premiere in Japan in January 2023. This one is pure Halloween goodness as it depicts Mahiru in a witch costume with a doll that looks suspiciously like Amane.
You can check out the video and full visual:
Kenichi Imaizumi (After School Dice Club) is in the director’s chair for The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten, with Keiichiro Ochi (The Quintessential Quintuplets) writing the series composition based on Saekisan’s original light novels, Takayuki Noguchi (Queen’s Blade) adapting Hanekoto’s original character designs for animation and Moe Hyuga (Steins;Gate 0) providing the music. The series will be produced at Project No.9 and is scheduled to broadcast in January 2023.
The original The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten novels were written on the Shosetsuka ni Naro user uploaded novel site by Saekisan before being picked up by GA Bunko and released as a light novel with illustrations by Hanekoto. Six (plus an extra volume) light novels have been released in Japan, with three released in English by Yen Press, which describes the series as such:
Mahiru is a beautiful girl whose classmates all call her an “angel.” Not only is she a star athlete with perfect grades—she’s also drop-dead gorgeous. Amane, an average guy and self-admitted slob, has never thought much of the divine beauty, despite attending the same school. Everything changes, however, when he happens to see Mahiru sitting alone in a park during a rainstorm. Thus begins the strange relationship between this incredibly unlikely pair!
