‘The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten’ is a romantic slice-of-life comedy light novel series by Saekisan with illustrations by Hanekoto. I was originally published by the Japanese publication company Shōsetsuka ni Narō though it was later picked by SB Creative.
Japanese animation studio Project No.9 announced that they had picked up the series for an anime adaption to be directed by Kenichi Imaizumi and written by Keiichirō Ōchi.
“We’re being spoiled rotten today with light novel news out of GA Bunko’s New Year Anime Festival, which now includes the announcement that The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten is getting a TV anime adaptation,” Funimation said on their website. “Narrated by Manaka Iwami (Fruits Basket) as Mahiru Shiina, the trailer previews her first meeting with Amane Fujimiya, played by Taito Ban (Pretty Boy Detective Club), and the budding romance between them.”
“Taku Yashiro (Horimiya) and Haruka Shiraishi (Golden Kamuy) have also been cast as Itsuki Akazawa and Chitose Shirakawa, respectively,” they added.
Project No.9 also released a trailer to commemorate the announcement, though no concrete release date was revealed.
MyAnimeList describes the synopsis as follows, “Amane lives alone in an apartment, and the most beautiful girl in school, Mahiru, lives just next door. They’ve almost never spoken-until the day he sees her in distress on a rainy day and lends her his umbrella. To return the favor, she offers him help around the house, and a relationship slowly begins to blossom as the distance between them closes…”
‘The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten’ has released over eight volumes with several more planned.
Square Enix began releasing the series in manga form through their Manga UP online magazine. The artwork is from Wan Shibata with Suzu Yūki handling the composition. Yen Press acquired the licensing for the North American release.
