So, what does scum wish for, actually…?

Earlier today, Sentai Filmworks announced that they picked up the rights to Scum’s Wish. The company acquired the license to the title for the following regions:

  • United States
  • Canada
  • United Kingdom
  • Ireland
  • Australia
  • New Zealand
  • South Africa

Sentai is producing an English dub for the title, which is currently in the works at Sentai Studios.

Scum’s Wish streamed as part of Fuji TV’s NoitaminA block in the Winter 2017 broadcast season. The show originally aired as an exclusive to Amazon’s Prime Video service.

Masaomi Andō (School-Live!, Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse) directed the series at Lerche, with Keiko Kurosawa (Re: Hamatora, Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle) providing character designs. Makoto Uezu (Assassination Classroom season 2, Yuki Yuna Is a Hero) was in charge of series composition.

Sentai Filmworks describes Scum’s Wish as:

At first glance, high school sweethearts Hanabi Yasuraoka and Mugi Awaya appear to have the perfect relationship and while the two enjoy each other’s physical companionship, they are merely using each other to feel anything other than pain as both Hanabi and Mugi are in love with other people. As this tangled web of emotions continues to ensnare others, viewers are exposed to the painful side of love, making this series often difficult to watch yet impossible to look away.
